Vancouver, BC
Full Time
13 hours ago
At KPMG, you'll join a team of diverse and dedicated problem solvers, connected by a common cause: turning insight into opportunity for clients and communities around the world.

The Opportunity:
KPMG's Integration Separation team, Operations M&A in Deal Advisory, helps companies to identify and deliver value from mergers and acquisitions. We specialize in provision of services in an around the deal cycle, including pre-merger due diligence and post-merger integration. We work with management and stakeholders to assess the impacts of a transaction and develop detailed implementation plans to help ensure the strategic reason of the acquisition or divestment is delivered. We work with a wide range of clients, including publicly, privately and private equity held companies across a variety of industries.

What you will do
  • Coordinating and supporting our clients in delivering value from their transactions, by playing a leading role on engagement teams:
    • pre-day 1 planning and implementation support
    • delivering rapid impact assessments
    • providing function-specific advice on key separation and integration challenges
    • providing input on legal documents and client plans
    • Identifying and quantifying the operational impact from merging and carving-out businesses.
  • Interacting and communicating effectively with senior client executives, including Chief Executive Officers, Chief Financial Officers and Chief Operating Officers, and working closely with senior client teams
  • Pro-actively conduct financial and non-financial due diligence to facilitate client during integration or separation processes
  • Partner with internal group members to create business development initiatives, proposals, project deliverables and set realistic timelines
  • Proactively identify potential hurdles and develop options to support realization of our client's interests
  • Mentor consultants and senior consultants to deliver a high quality of insight and service to our clients
At times, business needs arise and employees are required and agree to work beyond their normal work day or work week to fulfill the accountabilities required for their job. Likewise, people need time to commit to personal matters, and our approach to flexibility provides for this.

  • Able to lead teams in dynamic, time sensitive environments
  • Thorough business acumen, including financial literacy
  • Excellent work ethic, confident, articulate, and a team player
  • Understanding of program or project management (no formal project certification is required)
  • A self-starter who works well under pressure
  • Ability to quickly build effective working relationships
  • Can work with ambiguity and incomplete information, under minimal supervision
  • Creative problem-solver
  • Good attention to detail
