BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES

Operating from more than 28 countries and 70 offices, Duff & Phelps helps clients realise business goals across M&A, restructuring, financing and other corporate transactions.  We have an established, and truly global, TAS practice, that has multidisciplinary capabilities across financial, tax, operations and IT / cyber due diligence. 

Duff & Phelps is rapidly growing market share, to become a major challenger to the traditional Big 4 accounting firms, at a time of unprecedented regulatory and market upheaval.

We are now investing to grow a Strategy & Commercial Diligence capability, initially based out of London, to complement our broader TAS capabilities. This is a rare opportunity to join – and make your own mark in – a team in its ‘high growth’ phase, with unmatched benefits and challenges:

  • Key role in shaping and driving the growth of the Duff & Phelps TAS business in the UK, Europe and Global markets;
  • High levels of responsibility and autonomy;
  • Work-winning, client development and execution opportunities based on an issues-led approach across a range of sectors – variety and stretch;
  • Opportunities to work alongside colleagues on multi-disciplinary projects as part of a collegiate and entrepreneurial group;
  • Flexible and performance-based reward structure that is based on a “one-firm” approach and not constrained by territorial/personal boundaries; and
  • Real opportunity for accelerated progression

RESPONSIBILITIES:

 

The strategic objective for TAS is to expand into the corporate and private equity markets where work-winning is based more on a combination of content-lead account management and delivery rather than the traditional execution-only role with work-winning being primarily a Partner responsibility.  The successful implementation of this go-to-market route requires a senior team that has the experience and appetite to challenge traditional models.  Key responsibilities include:

  • Support the team on all relevant private equity and selected corporate transaction deal flows;
  • Develop strategic insights on assets and sectors, and take these to market with colleagues;
  • Support with the execution of strategy and commercial due diligence engagements: defining an appropriate scope, and drafting a robust, well-structured report
  • Work closely with the broader Duff & Phelps team to ensure the application of sound project management principles and quality assurance at all stages and phases of projects;
  • Understand the capabilities of our wider firm and identify opportunities to cross-sell additional services to our clients; and
  • Support our team with people initiatives, including recruiting

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Ambitious, disciplined self-starter
  • Track record in successfully delivering on a breadth of commercial due diligence engagements, and / or deep strategy experience within a sector, possibly acquired through a corporate strategy role;
  • Demonstrated analytical and problem-solving skills;
  • Demonstrated interpersonal and client relationships skills;
  • Proven written and verbal communication skills;
  • European language skills very much valued; and
  • Flexibility to travel, as needed
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills that help represent diverse communities
  • Experience working with diverse teams

We value the ability to operate with flexibility and autonomy whilst being part of a tight-knit, collaborative team who have fun working hard.  We don’t support a parochial, “eat-what-you-kill” culture and are looking for strong team players who will absolutely buy-in to the longer-term strategic ambitions of the wider business.
