Manager- Operations Deal Services

Posted 8 May by Robert Alan Partnership Ltd Easy Apply Ended

Our Client is a leading Accountancy firm and are looking for a Manager within their Operations Deal Services.

A Manager in our team will work as part of a project team, sometimes leading one or more Executives and involving other service lines such as Transaction Advisory Services, Lead Advisory, Performance Improvement and Tax. A Manager will be responsible for leading smaller projects with minimal oversight from an Associate Director/Director/Partner and will interface directly with client management, financiers and other advisors, whilst taking responsibility for risk management, budgets and billing. The role requires a combination of strong analytical skills and rounded inter-personal skills and will be based in London, but requires flexibility to travel throughout the UK, with the potential to travel overseas, depending on client requirements. From time to time a Manager may also be required to support other projects in Business Consulting, that fall outside of the core Deals offering. As a result the role requires strong consulting skills and an ability to adapt to different kinds of work (eg. Operational Transformation) outside of the core skillset.

  • End-to-end ownership of work streams on larger engagements, working closely with the engagement manager; while being the engagement manager for smaller client engagements

  • Applying existing consulting-based approach to identify solutions and build recommendations into structured manageable implementation work streams

  • Contributing to our continued thought leadership to ensure that appropriate solutions are developed for clients

  • Supporting with business development activities, including identification of leads through benchmarking analysis, and preparation of discussion and proposal documents, including liaising with members of other service lines

  • Being part of the Deals advisory competency, helping to develop our methods and knowledge

  • Imparting knowledge and insight to your team, while taking responsibility for your own career development

Who we're looking for:


  • Deep knowledge of one or more of the key Deals processes: buyer/vendor due diligence; integration; separation; day one planning; post deal change programmes

  • Demonstrated experience of managing small teams

  • Prior consulting (internal or external) experience, or significant project work experience


  • Understand / have the ability to discuss one or more Deals processes in detail

  • Project management and/or change management and/or transformation capabilities

  • Analytical approach to problem solving

  • Excellent Microsoft Office skills, particularly PowerPoint

Education/ Qualifications

  • Minimum of a Bachelor degree (or equivalent)

  • Formal Project/Programme Management qualification would be desirable but not essential

  • Foreign language would be desirable but not essential

You should be commercially focused with the ability to deliver innovative solutions. You should be focused on self-development as well as having the desire to coach, mentor and develop your colleagues.

Required skills

  • Due Diligence
  • ODS
  • Strategic M&A
