Audit & Assurance, Private Markets Group - Manager

Role description

Our clients range from Private Equity owned businesses and the UK’s largest privately owned businesses to high growth, dynamic entrepreneurial companies.

The Private Markets business is a multi-million audit and assurance market and we have already demonstrated great success, and high growth, over the past 2 years.

You will have the opportunity to work directly with owners throughout the business life-cycle, delivering high value-add propositions, with significant capital markets opportunities. There is also the mix of audit and non-audit work, and closeness to the business owner, means you will develop a broader, far more commercial skill set, positioning you as the 'trusted advisor’.

You will be based in a Deloitte Leeds office, however travel will be required for client based projects. We work across industry specialisms - our clients are varied, and vary in location. Whilst some clients are Leeds based, we do spend time on site with regional clients. We specify full mobility for our audit roles but we make arrangements respectfully.

  • Managing key audit and assurance relationships across our Private Markets corporate business stream;

  • Identifying and developing both audit and assurance opportunities with new and existing clients;
