Transactions careers: helping your clients manage their capital agenda
As an EY transaction professional, you’ll work with a diverse client portfolio consisting some of the world’s largest organisations, fastest-growing companies, and most influential private equity firms on some of the biggest and most complex cross-border engagements in the market.
You’ll help those clients make better and more informed decisions about how they strategically manage capital and transactions. That means advising businesses at every stage of the business cycle on how they preserve, optimise, raise and invest their capital to help them achieve their strategic objectives. In the process, you’ll learn new skills, and build valuable relationships that will open doors for you, throughout your professional life.
If you understand capital and how to make it work harder, you’ll feel at home in Transactions.
Work with our clients to manage their capital agenda
As an M&A professional, you’ll guide organisations to strategically manage capital and transactions. You’ll help leading organisations and entrepreneurial businesses meet strategic capital objectives through business reviews, acquisitions, leveraged transactions, disposals, takeovers and mergers.
As a project finance professional, you’ll work with public sector clients to procure infrastructure-related projects and help private sector clients structure and finance deals. You’ll evaluate different ways of delivering projects, develop financial models and negotiate funding to secure the most competitive terms.
As a restructuring professional, you’ll help companies and investors facing financial challenges and threats across the whole economic cycle. You’ll develop the skills to give integrated, objective advice on business restructuring, selling or buying a distressed asset, dealing with distress or under-performance or improving working capital management.
Operational Transaction Services
As an operational integration services professional, you’ll prepare and execute integration plans to maximise synergies and financial benefits from transactions. You’ll use your insights, together with the knowledge and experience of your colleagues, to drive operational value post-transaction.
Real Estate Advisory
As a transaction real estate professional, you’ll work with private and public sector clients to support their real estate portfolios. In the process, you’ll undertake feasibility studies, valuations and project management, and you’ll develop capital market strategies for acquiring or disposing of real estate.
As a transaction support professional, you’ll advise clients across the transaction lifecycle – from strategic assessment to implementation and post-deal integration. You’ll identify key value drivers, challenge assumptions about future performance and work in multi-disciplinary teams to deliver an integrated service to your clients.
As a transaction tax professional, you’ll advise companies and private equity investors on all tax aspects of their transactions, across a wide range of industries and geographies. You’ll help clients negotiate every stage of a deal from inception and initial due diligence, to tax-efficient transaction structuring right through to assistance with the sale and purchase agreement. You’ll work alongside restructuring colleagues to advise companies in financial difficulties, including those in formal insolvency proceedings, on sales of non-core businesses to restore their balance sheets.
Valuation & Business Modelling
As a business modelling professional, you’ll help decision-makers assess and plan the efficient allocation of resources in their organisations. Using sophisticated modelling and quantitative analysis techniques, you’ll develop business and financial models to structure a business or a new venture.
Working Capital Advisory Services
As a working capital professional, you’ll work with corporations, private equity firms and their portfolio companies to improve working capital management. You’ll help clients understand the likely sources of potential cash flow that can be released from accounts receivable, inventory and payables. And you’ll work with potential investors to help them assess the value that might be unlocked from working capital prior to closing a transaction.
