About the Opportunity
Are you ready to take control and deliver impact? Then join EY to gain experiences that will last a lifetime!

We're looking for Senior Executives (Managers) to join our team. We require fresh ideas and innovative minds to assist with a number of projects in the Transactions market.

About Transaction Support
Whether a business is successful and looking to leverage opportunities in the market, or is in financial distress and needs assistance with cash flow and mitigating risk, our Transaction Support Team can meet businesses' specific challenges. Specifically, we identify the key drivers of revenue and profitability, identify value adjustments, improve deal structures, mitigate risks and question assumptions about future performance. We improve negotiating positions and accelerate a smooth transaction with minimal disruption. Not least, we work with other teams to deliver an integrated service.

We work for a broad range of companies across sectors such as TMT, oil and gas, power and utilities, private equity, blue chip corporates and mid-market businesses. The potential for error is high in an environment where speed is critical, resources are limited and there is pressure to deliver.

- Improving deal structures
- Mitigating risks
- Working together to improve future performance

- Being a true business advisor to the client and establish yourself as a key client contact
