The team has significant experience supporting the complete spectrum of listed and privately owned companies across multiple sectors or geographies, whether a successful business seeking to enhance shareholder value, or an organisation experiencing a cash crisis.

We work right across the transaction cycle from pre-acquisition to exit preparation and across separation, carve out and integration scenarios.
The team is one of the market leading advisers in this space and part of the world’s largest specialist cash and working capital advisory practice.

There are opportunities to become a part of this group, specifically across inventory management and supply chain, credit risk and collections, and treasury and cash management.

Your Key Responsibilities – Treasury and Cash Management


  • As an Assistant Director, you will be responsible for ensuring that projects are delivered to the highest standards. You will scope how projects will be delivered, agree the approach with clients and coach junior team members through delivery.
  • Throughout engagements, you will manage the financial aspects of engagements by preparing a budget, organising staffing, tracking engagement economics, keeping clients up to date and communicating the status to the project partner.
  • In addition to delivering work, you will develop new business by responding to clients’ requests for proposals and by building and leveraging your own your network of internal and external contacts.
  • Our team is part of EY’s Strategy and Transactions business, and you will work closely with colleagues across functions to help our clients navigate complex transactions.


Skills and Attributes for Success


  • Experience of working in a treasury function or providing detailed practical advice to treasurers on overcoming business issues / challenges, including the implementation of treasury, cash and working capital projects.
  • Experienced at analysing information / data, to solve problems and formulate views and conclusions.
  • Able to confidently present solutions, issues, and findings in both a concise written and oral format.
  • Stakeholder management - every day you will interface with multiple stakeholders across different functions, and you will appreciate the context of the transaction and the client's business issues.
  • Communication – you will need to be able to communicate effectively with the engagement leader, the client, and the wider team in a concerted effort towards delivering work products of the highest standard.
  • Support – you will coach and develop more junior members of the team.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and inclusive teaming – you will be part of a diverse team with various backgrounds and experiences. Embracing these differences creates an environment where all EY people feel, and are valued, for who they are, have a sense of belonging, and are inspired to contribute their personal best in every encounter.
  • Understand the capabilities of the firm, looking for opportunities to bring in other specialists and service lines to broaden engagements and achieve the best possible outcome.

  • Experience in treasury or cash management, either in consulting role or from working in a treasury department at a large corporate.
