Business Modelling Associate, Valuation Services

Alvarez & Marsal

London

Introduction

A&M established a presence in Europe over 16 years ago and our growth has been tenfold. We currently have offices across Europe servicing private equity, senior lenders, investors, corporates and leading law firms with a range of professional services including Restructuring & Turnaround, Performance Improvement, Transaction, Tax Advisory and, since 2014, Valuation Services. 

Our European Valuation Services business is headquartered in London and we provide a full suite of valuation services, recently extended to also offer business modelling with the recruitment of an experienced Director with a strong track record in this field.  As we see demand for this new service line ramp up, A&M is seeking to grow its presence in this market further and we are therefore looking for a highly skilled Business Modelling Associate to join us in our London office.

As a founding member of the practice, the successful applicant may reasonably expect to benefit from attractive career progression opportunities, complemented by A&M’s highly competitive base pay package and bonus scheme and its entrepreneurial and stimulating working environment.
