Service line: Transaction Services

Experience level: Manager

Employment type: Full Time


The Team


Our Transaction Services practice comprises approximately 350 people across the UK, organised to align to KPMG’s market orientated structure, and is at the heart of the Firm's agenda to increase its penetration of boardrooms and work with clients across the economic and transaction cycle. Within this structure, the Private Equity Transaction Services Team (PE TS) team comprises c.60 professionals focused on both mid-market and LBO houses, working predominantly on financial due diligence projects across buy side, sell side, IPOs and refinancing projects.

Our team works closely with colleagues across Deal Advisory as well as Tax, Audit and other Advisory teams; it is a multi-disciplinary and international environment that sits right at the heart of our One Firm agenda.
Due to the increase in the number of transactions in the private equity market we are continuing to expand the size of our team and have a need to recruit multiple Managers in order support the growth of our PE TS business.

Role and Responsibilities

Perform financial analysis on the financial statements and internal management information of entities. You will be required to interpret financial performance of target entities, using your understanding of key accounting concepts, analysing historical performance trends, identifying key drivers of performance as well as identifying potential issues which could either lead to a price adjustment for our client or an integration issue post-acquisition.

Produce analytics on the trading performance and position of entities in order to provide clients with insight on key business drivers. You will for example be expected to prepare and work with a project data book.
Provide advice as a trusted adviser, using their skill, experience and understanding of transactions to the advantage of their client. This advice will be provided throughout a transaction and take the form of both oral and written advice. You will advise clients about the transaction process, SPA completion mechanics as well as providing general commentary of the findings of our work.
Demonstrate the ability to give clear directions, as well as positive and constructive feedback. You will coach less experienced staff and actively assist in the development of others. You will be expected to coach team members who are have either not yet fully attained accounting qualification or have less transaction experience than you.
Responsible for the delivery of client facing projects by being part of the transaction fieldwork team, being a day to day point of contact for senior client contacts for matters relating to our work.
Your role involves working in a team environment. You may be part of a larger team on complex assignments and you may be asked to lead work certain work streams on less complex engagements.
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.
Monitor and deliver high quality service to clients (both internal and external). You will need to be able to manage their own time, plan and organise work tasks, monitor progress and meet deadlines. Individuals will be proficient at managing multiple priorities.
Identify and manage risks, including front end client and transaction acceptance procedures and ensure the Firm's reporting frameworks are implemented throughout a transaction process.
