We are looking for a Senior Consultant or Manager within the Transaction Diligence team in our Auckland office. 

As part of our Transaction Diligence team you will work with a range of clients, from entrepreneur led businesses to the largest global enterprises.

The complex nature of our projects means you'll often be working with other EY colleagues from varied backgrounds and disciplines. 

Through analysis of financial, commercial and operational data, our industry-aligned transaction diligence professionals add true value to clients, providing insights to key decision-makers that help them increase value and reduce the risks and uncertainty inherent in transactions.

  • Prepare/evaluate pro forma financial information
  • Identify issues that impact purchase price and deal structuring
  • Based on your analysis write up your findings and recommendations
  • Share your technical and other knowledge with your team
  • Play a role in business plan initiatives (e.g. key accounts, recruitment, client service framework) and new business opportunities by building client relationships and demonstrating knowledge of client business

 

Skills and attributes for success

  • Experience in a Transaction Diligence role within a Consulting environment, working independently and with senior stakeholders on multiple engagements
  • Be an excellent communicator, both oral and written
  • Have project management skills
  • Be an effective time manager, able to keep calm when under pressure to meet deadlines
  • Be a team player with the ability to build effective relationships at all levels

 

Ideally, you’ll also have

  • Member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, or international equivalent
  • A strong work ethic and the ability to adapt to new challenges and ideas in a collaborative team environment
