Head of Corporate Finance
Our client is a rapidly growing Private Equity-backed international group, with a presence in the UK since 2009. Due to an internal promotion, we are now looking to recruit an exceptional individual to lead their business development initiatives in the UK.
The primary purpose of the role is to originate, execute and integrate new development opportunities within the UK. This will include new site development, partnerships, joint ventures as well as mergers and acquisitions in a number of the markets in which the group operates. In addition, it is to work closely with the Head of Service Development to increase the business opportunities to ensure the relevant knowledge and expertise in each department is shared through collaboration.
This role will report to the Global Head of Strategy & Corporate Development and be working closely with the General Manager UK, the Executive Manager, Europe and the Global Business Development Team. You will initially have one direct report.
The ideal candidate will have trained in M&A within a leading investment bank and either have taken on a more senior role within the bank or might have moved into a similar corporate finance role outside of banking. A significant part of this role involves origination and direct negotiation of deals, so first class communication skills are essential.
