About the role:

We have ambitious plans and are looking for individuals who can develop and build our go-to-market propositions and excel in client delivery. The team advises leading FTSE 100 & 350 clients on a wide range of issues. Recent examples include:

• Delivering integrated profit & loss, balance sheet and cashflow models for key corporate clients within the retail sector. These strategic models have been built for management to make strategic decisions around store portfolio rationalisation.
• Working lender-side to deliver Entity Priority Models for clients within the Oil & Gas sector which illustrate the impact of restructuring initiatives.
• Developing stochastic models to assess the impact of commodity price volatility within the Aviation sector.
• Performing model validation and logic reviews of existing models across a range of industries.

We develop these solutions using analytical and modelling skills and therefore a strong technical background is essential. We engage with stakeholders from a diverse background and as such, the ability to clearly articulate the results of our analysis is a key requirement. On a day-to-day basis, you will manage and deliver a wide range of concurrent analytical assignments, interacting with clients often as the main point of day-today contact on assignments.

In recognition of the need to invest in future growth of the practice, we are looking for individuals who not only have demonstrated relevant technical skills and experience, but who also have the potential with development support to lead on key client accounts and product areas, using strong relationship and people management skills.

A successful individual will work with the Corporates leadership team to continue to develop our modelling propositions and help develop the modelling capabilities. The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate they understand and stay abreast of industry developments and are able to translate these to practical propositions that add value to our client base.
