Work in Deals

When you buy your first car, you want to make sure you know what you’re getting for your money - who the previous owner was, whether it’s been in any accidents, what the risk is of needing to make major repairs.

Join us straight from school or college

You’ll gain a Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business (CFAB). It’s the first stage of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) Chartered Accountancy qualification and it’s nationally recognised. You’ll enjoy plenty of practical, on-the-job training and coaching, as well as time out to study for your exams.

By the time you’ve successfully completed CFAB, you’ll have had an individual discussion around your progression and appetite for further study. This can include: taking on more responsibility in the team; completing the remaining stages of your professional qualification with ICAEW; or moving to another role within Transaction Services, or another business area.


What is it?

Put together major mergers and acquisitions and resolve business crises. In Deals we manage a wide range of challenges and opportunities. We guide public and private sector clients through major deals, changes and decisions. We help different organisations tackle business problems, increase value and reduce risk. And you can too, by joining one of our expert teams:

Forensic Services: Help our clients to investigate, analyse and pre-empt business risks and issues, such as major public enquiries, bribery allegations, and commercial disputes.

Transaction Services: Support private equity firms, investment funds and corporate clients through mergers, acquisitions and disposals.

What you’ll do

Depending on the area, you could help clients looking to buy a business, sell all or part of their business, refinance or list on stock exchanges. Or you could work on an international take-over bid, an economic crime investigation or a commercial dispute. Whichever route you choose, you’ll gain specialist sector experience. You’ll also get the opportunity to work at your clients’ offices, as talking to them and understanding their business is essential to building trust and delivering the right solution.

Is Deals right for you?

Our Deals team is great with people and instinctively knows what needs to be done to put things right. So if you’re naturally inquisitive, good at multitasking, have an analytical mind and enjoy a challenge, then Deals could be for you.
