Companies, investors and government entities around the world turn to A&M for leadership, action and results.

Our European Valuation & Modelling business has offices in London, Paris, Stockholm, Frankfurt, Munich and Amsterdam and we provide a full suite of valuation and modelling services in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, complex financial instruments, illiquid securities, and private equity. Our restructuring heritage sharpens our ability to act decisively on behalf of our clients. We are unrestricted by any audit conflicts and we offer our clients a fully integrated international approach across different teams and offices.

Given increasing demand for both modelling and tailored analytical services, we are looking for an additional Analyst, Associate or Senior Associate to join us in our London office.  As an early joiner to the practice, the successful applicant may reasonably expect to benefit from attractive career progression opportunities, complemented by A&M’s highly competitive base pay and bonus scheme and its entrepreneurial and stimulating working environment.

  • Support compliance aspects of taking on of new clients – although as a non-audit firm the applicable regulations are less stringent at A&M than in certain other environments;

Attributes

Core

  • 2.1 or higher Bachelor’s or Master’s degree (ideally Mathematics / Technology / Science or related degree) from a leading university;
