With offices across the UK, we work with everyone from small start-ups and individuals to major multinationals, in virtually every industry imaginable. Our work is often complex, yet our vision is simple: to be the clear choice for our clients, for our people and for the communities we work in.

Job DescriptionThe team:

The Data & Analytics Team (or Strategic Profitability Insights, SPI team) works with KPMG Deal Advisory (Corporate Finance, Transaction Services and Value Creation) teams to deliver value-add insights on the fundamentals of a Target business.

Our team uses a combination of Alteryx, Tableau, and proprietary software to produce the aforementioned analyses in an efficient and effective manner. The deal teams and Targets we serve are routinely impressed with the speed at which we can create robust analysis. For example, we can understand, at a transactional level, what is driving businesses, often in 1-2 weeks, working with datasets in the tens of millions.

The role:

You will be joining a fast-growing team within Deal Advisory that is driving value for our clients using data-enabled solutions. So what’s that actually mean?

Our team works on a variety of engagements across industries, and the analytics required will vary by engagement. The list of analyses below, therefore, is just a sample of what we produce, and our product offering is ever-expanding.

Utilise non-chargeable time to network, attend trainings, and develop and implement new analytical approaches (by industry where applicable)

Five years of experience in public accounting, advisory, financial audit, mergers & acquisitions, transaction services, strategy consulting or equivalent

Bachelor's degree from an accredited college/university (MBA from an accredited college/university preferred)


Experience in project management including: planning, organizing, coordinating and managing staff, clients and/or partners towards the successful completion of a project


Exceptional attention to detail


Strong critical thinking skills, including “investigative” mind-set


Proficiency with Microsoft Excel skills, especially pivot tables, ideally shortcuts and macros
