Same job available in 65 locations

Position Summary

We are in the process of expanding Deloitte’s Accounting and Reporting Advisory practice within the IPO/ SPAC (Special Purpose Acquisition Company) Execution Services offering. Preparing to go public via an IPO or a SPAC merger can be a complex and time-consuming process, and companies must address financial reporting, technical accounting, internal controls, systems, and auditing considerations to prepare for going public. A target company in a SPAC merger will need to prepare itself for being a public company oftentimes within a few months, which is a shorter timeline compared to a traditional IPO for substantially the same preparation, due diligence, prospectus-drafting and SEC engagement and ongoing oversight. Public company execution and public company sustainment services for both IPO and SPAC mergers should cover cross-functional topics such as: technical accounting, financial reporting and close, finance effectiveness, financial planning and analysis, tax matters, internal controls and internal audit, human resources and compensation, investor relations, enterprise risk management, technology and cybersecurity, among other things.
