Employment type: Either Full Time or Part 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.

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.

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.
