Your Opportunity:

Opportunities like this don't come about in Brisbane very often, especially when you consider it is within a business that has undergone a huge amount of positive change, and one which is a newly created position where you'll report directly to the CFO.
This role will place you at the forefront of the continuous M&A and strategic advancements of this multinational corporation as they elevate their progress to new heights. Which is impressive given that they're already the largest operator in their sector.

As previously mentioned, you'll have the opportunity to work closely with the CFO, who is an incredibly engaging individual with extensive experience. We've had the chance to meet with them plenty of times, and we can attest to their expertise and likability.

Therefore, you'll be working with an invested leader who is down-to-earth and in amongst the details with you rather than sitting up high and directing you. You will benefit from working alongside them and you'll see your career grow under their guidance.

This is the CFO you will be telling people about in years to come when they ask you "Who was the best manager you worked for?"

They have a mature approach to flexibility, and they've embraced hybrid working allowing for 2 days at home as well as more time when required, and to quote them directly, "You don't need to come into the office to build a model".

What You'll Do:

You will be at the forefront of M&A activity for this large business and be involved in the development of international partnerships. You will be a key player in the execution of the acquisition and divestment of existing brands, systems, and partners, whilst working alongside the CFO to whom you will provide insights, advice, and recommendations.

To achieve this, you will have several key accountabilities to deliver on:
  • Providing support through financial modelling.
  • Valuation & research, and due diligence.
  • Industry analysis and reporting.
  • Board reporting and progressing settlements for board approval.
  • Work with operations post-acquisition to assess and analyze performance against budget and the overall success of the asset integration.
  • Identify and drive process improvements, including the creation of standard and ad-hoc reports, tools, and dashboards and developing automated reporting / forecasting tools.
  • Assessing opportunities for international development.
In addition, you'll develop significant relationships across the business including Finance, Commercial, and international partners.

This is an organization that doesn't expect you to hit the ground running, their maturity and professionalism means that in the first 30 days they want you to get to know the people, understand the data (they have great data!), understand the business, and scope out the role to understand where the business is going.

Who You Are:

You will possess an excellent skill set that is complimented by your ability to be a genuine Business Partner; this is a highly visible role that will involve extensive stakeholder engagement (with international travel too!) so you won't be the type of person to want to sit in the corner and crunch data.

You can be making your first move from Big 4 or reputable mid-tier with experience of Corporate Finance, but we're also keen to hear from you if you already have relevant commercial experience, providing you fulfill the criteria below.
A summary of what you'll bring:
  • 3 - 5 years of experience in M&A / Corporate Advisory
  • Advanced Excel; with a high level of proficiency in financial modelling
  • Exceptional data gathering and analytical skills.
  • An ability to juggle competing projects.
  • A clear focus on developing and maintaining relationships.
If you're serious about driving your career forward and making a positive impact in a large international business, then this is where you press apply....
