About the team

PwC Corporate Finance is looking for an ambitious Assistant Director to join its successful Industrial Products (IP) M&A team.

IP is a priority sector for PwC Corporate Finance in the UK and we are looking to accelerate its growth. In joining our team you will play an integral part in supporting our growth plans.

About the role

The focus of the role will be two-fold:

  • leading the day-to-day client interactions and managing the preparation of client deliverables;

  • building and maintaining relationships in the sector with a view to originating deal opportunities.

Working as an Assistant Director within the team, the role will involve the following:

  • Execution of buy-side and sell-side M&A transactions

  • Identifying new business opportunities

  • Building client relationships and participating in key proposals and presentations for new business

  • Acting as the key point of contact for clients

  • Overseeing the work of transaction teams and coaching junior staff

Essential skills and experience

The successful candidate should have:

  • M&A transaction excellence

  • Excellent client facing skills, with experience of working with different client types including private clients, corporates and private equity

  • Ability to grasp complex commercial and transactional issues quickly and to synthesise robust arguments, presenting them in an articulate manner

  • Strong analytical skills and the ability to think laterally

  • Experience in managing project teams, developing team members and working collaboratively

  • Financial modelling capabilities

Who we’re looking for

Candidates may be currently working in other sectors, but should have an excellence in transaction execution. One of the primary opportunities of this role will be to make a tangible and meaningful contribution to directly growing the business - as such the ideal candidate will have the ambition and determination to not only build a thriving business but also a successful career with PwC.



Our Deals business is an exciting, fast-paced and an ever-growing business that focuses on deals and crisis situations for our clients. Collectively, we deal with the types of situations you hear about regularly in the news and we provide support, insight and analysis to the management, shareholders and financiers of business.

The skills we look for in future employees

All our people need to demonstrate the skills and behaviours that support us in delivering our business strategy. This is important to the work we do for our business, and our clients. These skills and behaviours make up our global leadership framework, ‘The PwC Professional’ and are made up of five core attributes; whole leadership, technical capabilities, business acumen, global acumen and relationships.
