Delivering Deal Value – Senior Associate (Technology, Media & Telecom)

About the team

Delivering Deal Value (DDV) is a market leading team sitting within PwC’s Consulting business, assisting both Corporate and Private Equity (PE) clients in a wide range of high impact business situations. The M&A deals we work on range in size from £50m to over £10bn and our clients include the most well-known businesses and brands in the world.

Our team comprises approximately 200 people from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines. We recruit proactively from industry, consulting, private equity and audit to create a great blend of experience on each project. This blend of backgrounds helps us learn from each other and stay at the top of the market delivering fantastic results for our clients on landmark deals.

About the role

We currently have a vacancy for a Senior Associate in the TMT team, with a background in Technology businesses e.g. B2B software or Media businesses e.g. B2B Data, Events, Advertising
We work on a wide range of projects, including;

* Pre-deal value creation advisory – where can we optimise the operating model and cost base for our client?
* Carve out and divestment support – how does the business develop standalone capabilities and what is the cost impact? How will business continuity be maintained from Day 1 and throughout the separation process?
* Synergy development and review – where are the synergies between two businesses and what is the ongoing cost impact?
* Taking control and 100 day planning – how can our clients effectivel take control of the business and manage risk whilst delivering quick wins through the first 100 days?
* Mergers & Acquisitions Integration – how can our clients protect and grow value in an acquisition, what is the right level of integration to achieve this and what does an effectively run integration programme look like?
* Post-acquisition performance improvement using our Rapid Value Creation methodology – Where do value opportunities exist and how can we generate sustainable cost savings?
A career in the DDV team is a unique and rewarding challenge. The work is difficult, often quite complex and performed under tight deadlines. As a result, the opportunity for personal and career development is extraordinary with great opportunities for progression.

Whilst the team is London based, deal activity is global. As such, projects can involve travel at short notice. Occasionally projects may also involve being based overseas for multiple weeks with trips home weekly or bi weekly and candidates should be prepared for this.

The team is structured by sector, supplemented with specialist cross-sector teams in Finance, Technology, HR and Integration. Although you will be aligned to the TMT sector, the specific projects you work on will vary based on the demand and the current deal market and therefore a degree of flexibility is expected.

The Senior Associate role is an essential role at project level. You will be expected to support engagement managers and above, usually with data analysis, report editing and presentations. Contribution to business development efforts is expected alongside your project responsibilities.

What we are looking for:

Personal characteristics and skills: Our highest performers are usually;

Nice people! We work hard together, so we hire people who treat their colleagues well, who aren’t hierarchical and create a positive environment even when under pressure

Comfortable around C suite or senior stakeholders, as most of our work is done at this level; you don’t need to be an extrovert, but confidence definitely helps

Comfortable with uncertainty and excited by the idea that you may not know what country you’ll be in next week

Experienced with Excel and PowerPoint. Much of our work involves detailed analysis and report writing, so it’s critical you can work with these tools (if you're not already an Excel expert don't worry - as long as you're comfortable working with numbers we can train you on Excel).

Naturally curious; we love people who can apply logic and problem solving to difficult business problems

Desirable Skills:

Experience in M&A, synergy, integration and/ or carve-out
Professional services experience, either as a consultant/ advisor or as an internal consultant/ advisor within a corporate

Our recruitment process:

We try to keep our recruitment process as lean and efficient as possible. For 90% of our applicants we have a simple 4 step process consisting of:

CV application

Online tests

In-person case study and interview with members of the team

Partner interview

If you fit the requirements for this role and find the opportunity as exciting as we do, please get in touch and submit an application as our open positions fill quickly.

Consulting

In Consulting we deliver practical, far-sighted advice that gets straight to the heart of clients’ business issues and delivers amazing results by helping our clients improve the way they operate, reduce costs, manage risks, leverage talent or fundamentally change the way they do business, the work you do will be all about helping organisations of all shapes and sizes work smarter and grow faster. You could find yourself working with household names in a diverse range of industries – everyone from big-name broadcasters and high-street banks to multinational telecoms operators and energy companies.

Not the role for you?

Did you know PwC offer flexible contract arrangements as well as contingent work ( ie temporary or day rate contracting)?

The skills we look for in future employees

All our people need to demonstrate the skills and behaviours that support us in delivering our business strategy. This is important to the work we do for our business, and our clients. These skills and behaviours make up our global leadership framework, ‘The PwC Professional’ and are made up of five core attributes; whole leadership, technical capabilities, business acumen, global acumen and relationships.



Diversity

Valuing Difference. Driving Inclusion.

We work in a changing world which offers great opportunities for people with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool because creating value through diversity is what makes us strong as a business, enabling us to solve important problems and deliver value to our clients.
