Corporate Development Manager
Our client is a privately owned entrepreneurial investment company that owns three highly successful and growing digital ventures. Based in London, it is full of creative and passionate people who enjoy sharing ideas and working on exciting new projects.
There is now a requirement to recruit a first class candidate to work very closely with the senior leadership team on developing the group's existing portfolio of products as well as supporting innovation opportunities, be they through acquisitions or new launches. This position is integral to the strategy of the group as it will be at the heart of all future initiatives.
You will work with the CFO, CEO and other brand owners across the business to identify the most efficient ways of growing the business and shaping the portfolio, be it through raising external financing, developing plans for organic launches, driving acquisition opportunities or divestments.
Whilst receiving support from the senior management, the candidate will need to be a self-starter and capable of undertaking market analysis across international territories as well as be able to pull together investment standard presentations and financial models.
The ideal candidate may come from an investment banking background and have also recently spent time in a corporate environment with some exposure to digital/tech corporate finance, but other preferably fast growing sectors will be considered. You will have a strong academic background and be able to demonstrate the ability to distil large quantities of information into easy to read documents. Communication skills are very important as you will be required to work with, and influence colleagues across multiple business functions. A second language would be seen as a significant advantage given the international expansion plans, although this is not a pre-requisite.
