Do you want to help some of the largest, most interesting organizations in the world imagine, deliver and thrive in a sustainable, low-carbon economy? Do you want to help finance the technologies and industries that will be essential for the realization of a sustainable future?
There is growing awareness of the critical role of M&A and private equity to influence and deliver the transformational changes necessary to achieve a sustainable future.
Our ambition is to support a wide range of corporate and private equity clients on their most pressing ESG challenges and opportunities, with M&A and a change in ownership often a key trigger of change.
In response to this growing demand for ESG to be embedded in all aspects of the transaction lifecycle, our ESG and M&A Consulting Services team is looking to hire problem solvers with the desire to lead a purpose-driven career, to join our team to deliver trusted advice and practical solutions for our clients.
If you are looking to join this fast-evolving space and to take your career to the next level, while also gaining exposure to the worlds of ESG and mergers and acquisitions, then our team provides you with the perfect opportunity.

We know that Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) are an important aspect of growth, profit, and reshaping business. Whether the focus is on shaping sustainable investment strategies, realizing value through the implementation of sustainable transformation strategies to drive shareholder and broader stakeholder value, or proactively assessing ESG risks as part of due diligence, we support clients end-to-end.
Our ESG M&A Consulting Services team focuses on embedding ESG across the deal cycle - including ESG-led fund and portfolio level strategy development, assessment of deal targets with strategic ESG due diligence, post-transaction implementation of ESG strategy and initiatives, and supporting the articulation of ESG driven value creation upon exit.
