In recent months we have worked as reporting accountant on transactions involving Astra Zeneca, Virgin Wines and Alphawave IP, and acted as an advisor to Anglo American, Deliveroo and Cazoo.
Given the nature and complexity of deals, the team works closely with colleagues across the firm in a multi-disciplinary environment that sits right at the heart of our One Firm agenda (we often work alongside Audit, Corporate Finance, Strategy, Operations, Tax, Pensions, modelling and IT in the provision of TS led integrated IPO advice).

Project management: Individuals will be responsible for assisting with the delivery of client facing projects.
Developing people: Individuals will need to coach less experienced staff and actively assist in the development of others.
Risk management: Individuals will be required to assist in the identification and management of risks, helping senior team members ensure the Firm's risk management frameworks are implemented appropriately and effectively.
Building relationships: Individuals will be required to build and sustain relationships with client management team members for the benefit of the Firm as well as acting as an ambassador and role model for the Firm. Individuals will also assist in the development of pitch packs/proposals.
The role will be based in the London office but may involve some travel. A high level of flexibility is required to meet the demands of working in a transaction based environment.

Required Skills and Qualifications

CMAG operates in a fast paced environment, responding to client needs and transaction demands in a flexible and efficient manner. We engage with and often lead conversations with other advisors on the transaction (banks, lawyers, financial advisors). To succeed in this varied and demanding role you will need to demonstrate the following skills and experience:
• Strong academic and numerate background (ACA or equivalent)
• Experience of advisory or transaction related engagements, and delivering to tight deadlines under pressure (including financial due diligence experience – strongly preferred)
