Arkesden Partners have been mandated to help source an Senior Associate/VP to join their London Real Estate team.


Our client is looking for a Senior Associate/VP to join their London team. They have consistently been ranked in the top 5 in Europe, despite not lending. They have advised on some of the largest transactions in Europe, notably in Spain, Germany, Central and Eastern Europe. They have continuously been ranked in the top 2 in the German market and have had a hugely successful year here in terms of their returns (20% of this was from the Real Estate team). There is a much flatter structure with this client compared to other banks, with access to the seniors providing great exposure and a unique learning opportunity.  

The team currently has no individuals at the Associate/VP level and as such this will allow the successful candidate strong levels of autonomy and responsibility from the start. 


Due to the phenomenal pipeline, as a Senior Associate/VP, you will be immediately working on executions in the Corporate Real Estate space. You will be part of a lean team with very experienced seniors who operate in a non-hierarchical manner, allowing you to voice your opinions and be involved in decision making processes. You will be in charge of aiding the Analysts, and contributing to the development of their technical capabilities. The Real Estate team are hard-working and driven but pride themselves on also being a close-knit, fun group.


  • 5-7 years experience in a full-time M&A role.
  • Strong deal flow and execution exposure; have experience running M&A processes on the buy and sell-side.
  • Ideally come from a Real Estate team or have worked on Real Estate transactions and have a keen interest in the sector.
  • A good sense of capital markets transactions.
