Manager - Transaction Diligence, MENA
Competitive business today is all about making intelligent, informed decisions. As a Transaction Diligence professional, you will help make that happen.

Our team of strategic advisors sits at the heart of a global Transaction Diligence network of specialists who deliver high quality solutions to clients, helping them to meet their strategic goals.
Our core work is due diligence, assessing a target company’s finances and business projections, identifying opportunities, risks, sensitivities and potential mitigations, and reporting on these to our clients, their banks, investors and other parties.
You will analyse the financial and operational results of companies targeted for sale by reviewing financial information and participating in interviews with management. You'll work effectively as a team member by demonstrating your commitment to quality, sharing responsibility, providing support, maintaining communication and updating senior team members on progress.
