Transaction Services

When our clients want to make an acquisition, a disposal or a strategic alliance, or wish to access to global capital markets by floating their company, they want one thing above all: to maximize their return on the deal. We help to make this happen. Working for a range of clients that include corporates, private equity providers, banks and other institutions, we carry out financial investigations on target companies located across the UK and around the world.

What makes our service special is the way we understand and empathise with both parties involved in the transaction. On the one side, there are ambitious, entrepreneurial management teams, while on the other there are large corporations and city institutions – so clashes of culture and business practice will inevitably arise. We connect with the interests of both, so we can bridge this gap and bring about a successful, collaborative transaction.

We are looking for people with a proactive attitude who can communicate strategic recommendations, backed up by a gift for numbers and a commercial brain.

Professional Qualifications

As a trainee in our Transaction Services business, you will study the following:

  • ACA (from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) or CA (from ICAS) in Scotland

We help you to enhance this learning with our Initial Professional Development programme, through which you can develop the necessary personal, commercial and technical skills. Most of all, you will learn to exercise professional judgement in real situations.
