The Team

KPMG's Integration & Separation (I&S) Advisory team works with both acquirers and vendors on pre- and post-deal Integration and Separation issues related to M&A or similar transactions.

The Financial Management in M&A team is a specialist capability which supports the growth of the I&S practice. The team is built using a mix of consultants and industry-trained finance professionals, and has the ambition to be the advisor of choice for M&A issues which impact the finance function.
You will be working with highly motivated and high calibre individuals to build the leading team in the industry and work regularly on 'front page headline' deals for a client base comprising a wide range of publicly listed corporates, private companies, private equity houses and public sector organisations.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a newly formed team with ambitious growth plans and help build a market leading Financial Management in M&A capability.

Within Integration Advisory the key proposition areas are:
- Synergy evaluation – understanding the potential benefits and costs of a transaction.
- Pre-completion planning – developing high level plans for the first 100 days by workstream, setting up programme governance and developing Day 1 plans to take control.
- First 100 days and long term implementation – fully mobilised integration team with a prioritised set of opportunities and realisation of quick wins.
- Second wave integration – a refocused, re-energised integration process to capture the originally envisaged benefits of the deal.
- Demerger and Separation – understanding the separation options and giving assistance to deliver a credible, discrete standalone entity on Day 1 with value preserved and business continuity ensured.
- We work closely alongside our colleagues within KPMG's Transaction Services who conduct financial, commercial and operational due diligence, providing an integrated and value-adding service to our clients to help make their transactions successful.

The Role

You will gain exposure to the high pressure, fast-paced world of transactions through delivering operational finance integration and separation projects. Your role on a project will include:

- Assisting CFOs and finance stakeholders on the buy-side or sell-side to plan and execute changes in the finance organisation as required by the transaction. This will be across the deal cycle from pre-deal to post-deal phases of the transaction.
- You will work across a variety of industry sectors and locations with clients of varying size and complexity. We also work with other advisory firms (banks, law firms, technology companies, and other accounting firms) on deals, as required, which depends on the nature and scope of the engagement.
- Providing day to day support to project office activities, and lead PMO activities on small to medium sized engagements.
- Lead analytics on synergy and separation type projects and be responsible for first draft of significant sections, if not all, synergy commentary reports.
- Lead the support to the finance workstreams on integration / separation projects, supporting client workstream leads to fulfil their workstream objectives.
- Ownership and maintenance of engagement financials and on larger projects oversee the work of more junior staff.
- Contribution of content for sections of reports/deliverables on separation and integration projects.
- When you are not working on a project, you will provide support to senior colleagues in preparation of proposal materials.
- You will need to be willing to travel as we mainly work from client sites and have a global portfolio of clients. The length of a project can be anywhere from one week to one year, although a typical project will last a few weeks and we would aim to give you as diverse an experience as possible.
