Job description

Our Equity Advisory team is looking to recruit graduates as part of the wider Graduate Programme. The team is a key pillar of our Global

Advisory business and is the market leading equity advisory team globally. Please see further details below:

  • It has been an independent adviser on 322 transactions since 2014 with a combined deal value of over $278bn, across the full spectrum of IPOs and other equity offerings
  • Work is heavily skewed towards transactions rather than pitching
  • The team works closely with the M&A Sector teams, our market-leading Debt Advisory team and our Investor Advisory team
  • It's close to the equity markets, advising on valuation, tactics, execution and implementation

Landmark transactions include:

  • The world's largest ever IPO - Alibaba ($25bn)

  • Largest ever European Corporate Mandatory Convertible Note - Bayer (€4.0bn)

  • Privatisations of AIB, DONG Energy, ABN AMRO, RBS and Royal Mail
  • Recent IPOs of Watches of Switzerland, Quilter, Avast, Energean
  • Capital raises for Marks & Spencer and Serco

This programme provides unrivalled training in the financial concepts you will need to be successful in your team, as well as key personal skills such as communication, personal effectiveness and team building. As you will be undertaking the training alongside graduates from a number of countries around the world, there will also be many opportunities to build your global network. Those who have not studied finance previously will be given all the support necessary to hit the ground running when they join their teams.
