A career in the DDV team is a unique and rewarding challenge. The work is difficult, often quite complex and done under tight deadlines.
As a result, the opportunity for personal and career development is extraordinary with great opportunities for progression, however this career path can be challenging at times.
Whilst the team is London based, deal activity is global, therefore projects can involve travel which can be at short notice. Occasionally projects may also involve being based overseas for multiple weeks with trips home weekly or bi weekly and candidates should be prepared for this.

The team is structured by sector, with specialist cross-sector teams in Finance, Technology and Integration; we also work closely with our colleagues in ‘People in Deals’ who focus on the HR aspects of a deal. Although you will be aligned to a sector or specialist team, the type of client projects you work on will vary based on the demand and the current deal market, therefore a degree of flexibility is expected.

The Manager role is a leadership role at project level. As such, you will be expected to take on a leading role on engagements and management of project team members within 6-12 months and contribute to business development efforts where possible alongside your project responsibilities.

There are plenty of opportunities to get to know your new colleagues. Consulting is a relationship industry after all. We have weekly team newsletters, monthly team meetings and monthly socials, together with an annual away day. The team is a collaborative and supportive environment with lots of chances to socialise across our team and the wider business.

Professional experience
  • From an operational line management role or a transformational role in a corporate, have been involved in the operational side of private equity or worked in operational transaction services in the past
  • Experienced in one or more of the following lean manufacturing, manufacturing best-practice, operational restructuring and cost reduction.
  • Able to demonstrate a strong understanding of at least 1 of the following functions; commercial, corporate development, procurement, supply-chain or manufacturing operations
  • Have the ability to quickly assess the performance of a business (or elements of it) and outline improvement opportunities based upon limited information and/ or interactions with Management
  • Have experience in M&A, synergies, integration, carve-out, change projects, restructuring or business improvement
  • Have some professional services experience, either as a consultant/ advisor or as an internal consultant/ advisor within a corporate
Personality characteristics
  • We work hard together, so we hire people who treat their colleagues well, who aren’t hierarchical and enjoy creating a happy culture even when under pressure
  • Extremely comfortable around C suite or senior stakeholders, as most of our work is done at this level; you don’t need to be an extrovert, but confidence definitely helps
  • Comfortable with uncertainty and excited by the idea that you may not know what country you’ll be in next week
  • Extremely handy with Excel and PowerPoint. Much of our work involves detailed analysis and report writing, so it’s critical you can work with these tools
  • Naturally curious; we love people who can apply logic and problem solving to difficult business problems
Nice to have
  • MBA or other business management qualification
