You will be working alongside experienced due diligence professionals, where you will continue to develop your skills to perform due diligence in a range of situations and sectors.  There is the opportunity for travel, both within the UK and potentially internationally. When working on projects you will almost always be working as part of a wider cross service line team.

As an Executive in Transaction Diligence you would be a vital member of the team by analysing financial data and identifying key trends behind the performance of a business, discussing business performance and forecast assumptions with senior finance and operational management, and writing reports that set out our findings and recommendations around the key financial and business issues in a transaction.
