Transaction Diligence, Manager

We help corporate and financial clients to meet their strategic goals, whether they are acquiring, divesting or raising finance. Although our work is fast-paced, high profile and high pressure and often operates within demanding deadlines, you will find it to be extremely rewarding.

Our core work is due diligence, assessing a target company's finances and business projections, identifying opportunities, risks, sensitivities and potential mitigations, and reporting on these to our clients, their banks, investors and other parties.

The opportunity

You will analyse the financial and operational results of companies targeted for sale by reviewing financial information and participating in interviews with management. You'll work effectively as a team member by demonstrating your commitment to quality, sharing responsibility, providing support, maintaining communication and updating senior team members on progress. You'll also help to create a positive learning culture for junior team members and support their development. And as part of your role in the wider team, you'll have a role to play in other team initiatives - for example, account management and recruitment.

As a Manager within the Transaction Diligence team, you will manage the project teams and work closely with all members as well as forming strong internal links within transaction support and other departments in EY both in the Singapore and ASEAN to form multi-disciplinary teams. You will understand the key business drivers, co-developing our approach with the client, agreeing value measurements with the client, providing value to the client through insights, factual conclusions and advice. You will p lan, prepare and review deliverables in various forms including excel databooks, written reports, presentations and discussions with the client. You will understand the capabilities of the firm and look for opportunities to sell additional services to our clients. You will play a key role in business plan initiatives (e.g. key accounts, recruitment, client service framework).
