Role description

The role of the Commercial Due Diligence Team is to provide independent and objective reviews of businesses on behalf of institutional or corporate investors, prior to completion of a transaction. The reviews typically encompass analysis of markets, competitive environment, customer and supplier relationships, and other key commercial issues identified by the client. The reviews complement the work carried out by the financial and tax teams, with findings typically integrated within a full due diligence report. As an Executive, you will be required to use your previous experience and work closely with, and support senior members within the team to assist in the timely delivery of services. You will have experience of desktop research and analysis and preparing reports for clients. You will gain an understanding and experience in the field of commercial due diligence, and will support its development on a national basis. As an Executive you will: * Develop a clear understanding of the client's business and their priorities. * Demonstrate a grasp of commercial and strategic issues; contribute to identifying key project issues and provide some real insights into analysing and resolving these. * Undertake desktop research (including finding, interpreting and analysing information) across a variety of industries, translating findings for the target business appropriately. * Assist in the interviewing of customers, suppliers and partners as required to benchmark performance and understand key issues in these relationships. * Produce discrete sections of reports containing minimal errors, in a clear, concise manner, using Word or Powerpoint. * Accompany more senior team members to meetings with clients as required, and assist with the preparation for and follow-up from such meetings. * Provide a point of contact throughout the engagement dealing with requests and issues in a timely manner, in conjunction with senior members of the team. * Ensure client feedback is captured, addressed and effectively communicated to the Project Managers. * Support projects nationally - with intermittent and usually short periods of travel to client or target companies.
