To support our ESG ambition, we are seeking dedicated leadership resource; you will be an integral component of our ability to meet client demand and deliver differentiated services in this area.

Your opportunity
To support our ESG ambition, we are seeking dedicated leadership resource; you will be an integral component of our ability to meet client demand and deliver differentiated services in this area.

Working within Transaction Services (a practice that operates as part of Deloitte’s Financial Advisory service line), this is a leadership role dedicated to building our capabilities in ESG due diligence and post-transaction ESG implementation work. You will be responsible for the go to market, product evolution and capability development of these areas.
We anticipate that this role would provide the opportunity to progress to Partner, subject to the individual building the business and consistently demonstrating the right attributes. 
We encourage consideration of flexible ways of working, both formal and informal arrangements that allow for the best outcomes for our people and our clients. If this opportunity is of interest to you with some flexibility, please do discuss with us.

Your role
Our ambition is to support a wide range of UK and global clients on their most pressing ESG challenges and opportunities, with M&A and a change in ownership often a key trigger of change.

You will work alongside a team of ESG experts in Financial Advisory, covering Operations and People issues, and a broader community of ESG related experts across the firm, including our Sustainability, Human Capital and Tax experts. Key to this role’s success is experience in taking to market ESG with both a practical and an operational lens applied; thus creating a narrative which will be valued and considered relevant by M&A investment professionals in Private Equity and Corporate clients.

As a leader within this service area, you will have responsibility for: 
Go to Market

  • Working with our origination team to research and develop points of view on M&A assets coming to market to support the overall TS pipeline
  • Identifying potential assets which are attractive to ESG funds
  • Developing an approach for specific sectors (FS, Consumer, Industrial Products, Energy & Utilities and TMT) to lead the discussion with clients engaged in M&A on the ESG agenda
  • Accompanying others into the market to act as a trusted advisor and provide ESG-specific ‘war stories’ on previous experiences of creating and implementing ESG programmes within an M&A context
  • Developing a network of Partners and Directors, to educate and build confidence within the community on ESG
  • Developing our go to market activities with our chosen clients, demonstrating ability to generate leads and expand our current conversations and opportunities

Sales and sales pipeline

  • Developing a pipeline of opportunities by supporting account and sector teams
  • Creating a compelling pre-and post-deal offering for M&A
  • Leading own, and support others’, sales activities to deliver ESG revenues.

Service development

  • Defining and refining our ESG service offering to meet market needs and potential growth opportunities
  • Overseeing diligence and post-deal delivery programmes; developing, leading and training a team as part of this programme. We have significant corporate finance capability in India and we would expect the delivery aspect of service offerings to include drawing on existing capability in FA, RA, and underpinned by our delivery engine in India. We would also anticipate much of the offering to be supported via digital means – we have a dedicated Digital function within FA who can support this.
  • Working alongside SMEs in FA and across the firm, to provide technical expertise on the following:
     - Environmental regulation and standards
     - Environmental impact analysis and reputational drivers
     - Environmental governance and controls
     - Environmental supply chain and workplace implications
     - Trends in consumer, social and regulatory implications as a result of sustainability and environmental changes

Operational leadership

  • Recruiting and training ESG professionals to build the team
  • Supporting, performance management and reviewing team members
  • Building collateral to underpin delivery programme and go to market activities
  • Developing strong relationships with internal stakeholders across the firm, and within FA, act as a sounding board to those other FA businesses which need to integrate ESG considerations into their existing offerings.
  • Becoming known as one of our key spokespeople/’go to’ subject matter experts on ESG, to complement the existing expertise within FA.

Your work, your choice
At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk. We carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. Please speak to your recruiter about the working pattern that works best for you.

This is a permanent role (typical hours are 9.30 – 5.30pm) with a degree of flexibility. We do encourage careful consideration of agile ways of working, both formal and informal arrangements that allow for the best outcomes for our people and our clients.

Location: London

Suggested work pattern: Permanent full-time.

Your professional experience
To qualify for the role you must have 10+ years working in industry/a professional services environment, with 3+ years’ experience of operational ESG experience. Your skill set should include:

  • Awareness of regulatory and market level standards that drive the environmental agenda
  • Awareness of the leading frameworks in place including Net Zero, Impact Analysis PACTA, TCFD etc.
  • Understanding of ESG issues considered material to investors, investment managers or across asset classes
  • Credibility to operate at a senior level and inspire respect at all levels while having a strong influence on decision-making at the executive management level
  • Strong leadership skills demonstrated through significant people-management in matrix style organisations
  • A clear vision of the opportunity and buyer priorities for ESG in the M&A arena
  • A track record of building effective teams, leading and motivating them
  • Excellent inter-personal skills with the ability to work within senior teams and with the business community;
  • Excellent communications skills with the ability to present ideas and findings verbally and in writing to leadership and broader teams
  • Demonstrated ability to establish a service culture, one that encourages the free flow of information and ideas
  • Strong commercial focus with a desire to build a leading ESG practice which delivers year on year growth at strong margins

Your service line: Financial Advisory
Advising clients in the moments that define their business takes multiple layers of expertise. Much more than due-diligence, this is about diverse teams of specialists coming together, crossing service lines and international borders to tackle the many, complex issues involved in major transactions. And we have one of the broadest networks in the business. Here, you’ll find fascinating, career-building projects, market leading approaches, cutting-edge resources, huge clients and inspirational colleagues. As well as opportunities to develop a deep industry or product specialism. 

Personal independence
Regulation and controls are standard practice in our industry and Deloitte is no exception. These controls provide important legal protection for both you and the firm. We are subject to a number of audit regulations, one of which requires that certain colleagues abide by specific personal independence constraints. This can mean that you and your "Immediate Family Members" are not permitted to hold certain financial interests (shares, funds, bonds etc.) with audit clients of the firm. The recruitment team will provide further detail as you progress through the recruitment process.
