Investment Director - Private Equity
Our client is a leading National Private Equity House specialising in investments in the medium to large sized enterprises. Due to continued growth within their investments they are looking to expand their Midlands team with an Investment Director.
For the Investment Director role this organisation is considering the highest calibre of individuals with exceptional academic records with an impressive career to date coming from a commercial or strategic background. This may be from some sort of Strategic Consulting environment, a highly strategic and commercial role within a Private Equity backed business, Corporate Finance or indeed currently coming from another Private Equity House.
As an Investment Director you will be responsible for originating and executing transactions as either new platform investments as well as bolt on acquisitions for existing portfolio companies. You will review a large number of deal opportunities across a wide range of sectors.
On new deal opportunities you will be responsible for determining the commercial viability of the opportunity, managing internal teams and external advisers, conducting rapid due diligence through to negotiating the commercial and legal terms of the transaction.
Investment Directors will also take non-executive director roles in portfolio companies, with continuing responsibilities including setting the strategic direction specifically for growth.
The successful Investment Director will be able to generate their own pipeline of work and will feel comfortable making all the relevant investment decisions as are required. You will have an established network, not necessarily in the Midlands, but you will work hard to be actively involved in deal origination and marketing and general networking out of hours which is required.
This is an exceptional opportunity to join a renowned team at an exciting time with high levels of profitability, both in the short and long term. If successful you will be rewarded an excellent salary, benefits, bonuses and carry package.
