They are looking for a dedicated modelling resource based in Birmingham to support Birmingham M&A deals.

* Our modellers work closely with the deal teams and the end clients, to understand the key drivers of the business that we are modelling
* A typical model build process will include, attending initial planning meeting, building of the operational model, continual explanation and development through client liaison and inclusion of financial / deal overlays.

* Literacy - our service offering requires the ability to express clearly and concisely complex financial matters, with no room for ambiguity
* Excel skills - while we expect to provide continual and ongoing training in the technical side of financial modelling, the candidate should have a good level of understanding and experience in building financial models. Some VBA programming skills would be desirable, but not a pre-requisite.
* Deal experience - As most of our assignments involve working on M&A deals, experience of working on deals and an understanding of different parts of an M&A deal would be preferable
* Ownership and responsibility - the candidate will quickly be in a position of delivering decision-critical work on deals; the desire and ability to take responsibility for the client's requirements is therefore paramount to success within our team
