Job description

• Synergy evaluation – understanding the potential benefits and costs of a transaction.
• Pre-completion planning – developing high level plans for the first 100 days by work
stream, 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 valueadding
service to our clients to help make their transactions successful

• Contribution of content for sections of reports/deliverables.
• When you are not working on a project, you will provide support to senior colleagues

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.
