In response to the growing demand for our market leading M&A Consulting services, we are looking to hire problem solvers to join our team in Sydney to deliver trusted advice and practical solutions for our clients.


If you are looking for an opportunity to take your career to the next level and gain exposure to the world of mergers and acquisitions, then our team provides you with the perfect opportunity:

About the team

We know that Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) are a huge deal for businesses, so whether the focus is on growth through acquisitions or increasing shareholder value through strategic divestments, we support clients from start to finish.


Our M&A Consulting Services Team focuses on the deal cycle - including assessment of deal targets with commercial and operational due diligence, pre-deal analysis, deal execution and implementation. We provide support for our clients during sell-side separations and buy-side integrations, with a focus on increasing growth and value, and helping our clients navigate complex deal processes.

What will your typical day look like?

You will develop an impressive range of commercial consulting skills that will multiply your career options. Benefiting from client exposure and learning from the top practitioners in the field, you will be involved throughout the lifecycle of some of the largest, most complex and high-profile deals in Australia and internationally.


You will grow and develop yourself in providing advice to Deloitte’s vast portfolio of clients – from private, international and national corporations to private equity firms. You will help them realise the true strategic and operational capability of acquisitions in the commercial assessment acquisitions (CDDs & ODDs), potential merger synergies and carve-outs, stand-alone performance improvements, and in the planning and execution of integration and separation projects.

As a Senior Consultant you will also:

  • Engage with colleagues and client C-Suite / senior management to assist with the completion of actions, management of risks and issues and facilitation of decision making to fulfil programme objectives and deliverables

  • Perform financial analysis and due diligence for the proposed transaction

  • Prepare acquisition / carve out business cases for review by key stakeholders

  • Develop and deliver integration or separation strategies to extract maximum value from the transaction

  • Support the development of key transaction documents e.g. Transitional Service Agreements and Executive Board Reports

  • Assist with the execution of the transaction, including blueprinting and Day-1 (Completion) readiness planning

  • Provide programme management support on our engagements

  • Work effectively in diverse teams within an inclusive team culture where people are recognised for their contribution

Enough about us, let’s talk about you.

You are someone with:

  • Bachelor’s degree or post graduate qualification (e.g. CA / CFA / MBA)

  • Previous Strategy or programme management experience on complex/large projects, ideally from a leading corporate institution or consulting firm

  • Natural aptitude to problem solving and structured thinking

  • Core strategic toolkit with an appetite to further develop

  • Familiarity with the broader deal-oriented process and environment
