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.

It’s the same when buying a business - and that’s where our Deals teams come in.


Our Deals teams help put together major mergers and acquisitions and resolve business crises.

You could work on anything from international take-over bids to economic crime investigations and cases of insolvency.

Most of our roles in Deals are available once you are fully qualified in another team (eg after you’ve qualified in Audit, Risk Assurance or Tax) or for graduates, however we do recruit School and College Leavers into our Transaction Services Team in Belfast

Join us straight from school or college into Transcation Services

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 in a different 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.
