Associate Investment Director - National Private Equity Provide - City, Leeds, United Kingdom, LS1

£80k

This mid-market private equity house has a tremendous track record of generating excellent returns over many years. This track record has led to repeatedly successful fund raising exercises and the business is well positioned for many years to come.

As an associate investment director you will perform the full investment cycle from deal origination to completion. A major part of this role is business development, driving new opportunities in to the business through proactive market approaches and building exceptional relationships with advisors and intermediaries. Business development is not an 'add-on' to the role so you will need to demonstrate both a natural talent and natural desire to win work; in this regard you will often lead in this area for the business. The ideal candidate will have extensive market facing experience as either a transactional advisor for a major firm of accountants - corporate recovery, transaction services or perhaps corporate finance - or have recent private equity investment and deal origination experience at a manager or associate director level for a mid-market house. You will also ideally be a fully qualified accountant - ACA, CA or ACCA - with previous or current large firm professional practice experience.

This is a great opportunity to join a very well established and successful national investor in a senior role, originating and completing deals, with the potential to earn very well through bonus and carried interest. Progression is clear and common place within this meritocracy.
