Make your first move from audit into Transaction Services

Are you an Insurance auditor looking for a move into Corporate Finance?

I am working in partnership with one of France’s leading consulting firms, assisting them to hire Transaction Services professionals at Senior Consultant and Assistant Manager level. Due to continued growth, the firm is expanding its Financial Services practice and seeking talented professionals to join this young, dynamic team.

This role is open to those coming straight from Audit, making it a fantastic opportunity to move into the world of Corporate Finance and work alongside some of the most respected Transactions advisors in the market.

The role:
You will work within the Transaction Services team and perform financial due diligence procedures relating to the sale and purchase of companies in the financial sector (FIG).

Specifically, you will deal with:
  • Interpretation and analysis of information memoranda, business plans, publicly available information on the target business
  • Review and analysis of historical trading, quality of earnings, cash flow, working capital, net debt, capital expenditure, forecasts and underlying assumptions
  • Review of the adequacy of financing structure including review of agreements and consideration of limits, terms and covenants
  • Reporting of potential key issues for clients including identification of risk or price factors impacting investment decisions
  • Review of sale and purchase agreements and financial model to reflect findings of the due diligence process
You don't need to bring prior Transactions experience to this role, although it is desirable. What I am really looking for is:
  • French language skills
  • 3-5 years’ experience in Audit or Controlling in a Big 4 firm or bank
  • Must have some exposure to Financial Services sector (ideally Insurance)
  • Strong analytical skills
In return, you will receive a competitive salary with bonus scheme and excellent career development opportunities.
