Position Summary

Are you looking for a fast-paced, exciting and dynamic work environment to challenge your existing skills? Are you interested in solving complex business issues? If so, Deloitte is seeking Senior Consultant-level candidates for its M&A Transactions Services Analytics practice.

Today’s M&A due diligence environment generates vast volumes of data and information, and almost all of this information is captured and stored in digital form.

Our clients include Fortune 500 companies in technology, financial services and banking sectors, health care, telecommunications and other industries, as well as the most dynamic private equity firms in the world.

Work you’ll do

First, you will be key member of client deal teams through gathering, normalizing, validating, and analyzing transactional data (e.g., sales and inventory data) to develop and test hypotheses for a given deal. You will work as part of cross-functional teams providing financial, accounting, operational and tax due diligence, bringing your skills to the deal to manage and analyze the data, and utilize your visual analytics skills to tell a compelling story of our findings.

Second, you will be using business intelligence tools and use your data analytic skillset to provide meaningful insights to our clients which are crucial to their deal investment hypothesis. You will leverage your client service skillset directly interacting with C-suite and private equity executives providing advice on some of the most critical aspects of the M&A transaction.

A candidate can expect to do some or all of the following: 

  • Coordinate with FP&A and Strategic Finance personnel to identify, collect and validate data from client databases
  • Analyze financial & key performance indicator deal data for trends and outliers
  • Identify opportunities to design and develop visualizations and dashboards that enable effective and repeatable analysis of large transactional datasets
  • Directly advise clients
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills are essential, as well as demonstrable evidence of effective team leadership, client relationship development, project management, and engagement management, preferably in a client service setting

Team members collaborate with other transaction service analytics professionals, members of the deal teams and clients to produce analyses within fast-paced transaction deadlines. This is not a “back-office” position; this is front-line client interaction with significant opportunity for growth and advancement.

The team

An in-depth understanding of the M&A landscape, market experience, and access to our global network of advisors means we have the capabilities to help clients confidently pursue strategic transactions in both domestic and global markets – this includes managing the entire M&A lifecycle. Working with our clients to develop growth strategies based on their organizational goals, our services are designed to help clients be prepared to capitalize on opportunities during the merger, acquisition or divestiture process. Learn more about Deloitte Risk and Financial Advisory’s Mergers and Acquisition practice.

  • Experience designing and storytelling via data visualization (examples include but not limited to Tableau, Power BI, Excel Charts, etc.)
  • Experience analyzing or managing accounting, financial or transactional data
  • Ability to travel up to 20%, on average, based on the work you do and the clients and industries/sectors you serve

We have been informed of instances where jobseekers are led to believe of fictitious job opportunities with Deloitte US (“Deloitte”). In one or more such cases, false promises of actual or potential selection, or initiation or completion of the recruitment formalities appear to have been or are being made. Some jobseekers appear to have been asked to pay money to specified bank accounts of individuals or entities as a condition of their selection for a ‘job’ with Deloitte. These individuals or entities are in no way connected with Deloitte and do not represent or otherwise act on behalf of Deloitte.

We would like to clarify that:

  • At Deloitte, ethics and integrity are fundamental and not negotiable.
  • We are against corruption and neither offer bribes nor accept them, nor induce or permit any other party to make or receive bribes on our behalf.
  • We have not authorized any party or person to collect any money from jobseekers in any form whatsoever for promises of getting jobs in Deloitte.
  • We consider candidates on merit and that we provide an equal opportunity to eligible applicants.
  • No one other than designated Deloitte personnel (e.g., a Deloitte recruiter or Deloitte hiring partner) is permitted to extend any job offer from Deloitte.

Anyone who at any time has made or makes any payment to any party in exchange for promises of job or selection for a job with Deloitte or any matter related to this (including those for ‘registration’, ‘verification’ or ‘security deposit’) or otherwise engages with any such person who has made or makes fraudulent promises or offers, does so (or has done so) entirely at their own risk. Deloitte takes no responsibility or liability for any such unauthorized or fraudulent actions or engagements. We encourage jobseekers to exercise caution.
