About A&M

Companies, investors, and government entities around the world turn to Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) for leadership, action, and results. Privately held since its founding in 1983, A&M is a leading global professional services firm that provides advisory, business performance improvement and turnaround management services. When conventional approaches are not enough to create transformation and drive change, clients seek our deep expertise and ability to deliver practical solutions to their unique problems.

With over 7,000 people across four continents, we deliver tangible results for corporates, boards, private equity firms, law firms and government agencies facing complex challenges. Our senior leaders, and their teams, leverage A&M’s restructuring heritage to help companies act decisively, catapult growth and accelerate results. We are experienced operators, world-class consultants, former regulators, and industry authorities with a shared commitment to telling clients what’s really needed for turning change into a strategic business asset, managing risk, and unlocking value at every stage of growth.

Global Transaction Advisory Group

A&M’s Transaction Advisory Group (TAG) has an exciting opportunity to join a growing team in Toronto. TAG is a subsidiary of A&M, an established leader in providing global leadership and advisory services to a variety of diverse industries. A&M TAG is seeking a Senior Associate to bring their energy, passion, and expertise to help our clients get the answers they need to get the deal done. We provide private equity and corporate clients with buy- and sell-side commercial due diligence (CDD). CDD professionals actively engage in developing well-constructed hypotheses, completing detailed research and analysis, and conducting comprehensive discussions with industry experts, along with management and their advisors.

What will you be doing?

As a Senior Associate, you will have the opportunity to work with our highly motivated and effective team of professionals on a variety of interesting projects across different industries, including, but not limited to, manufacturing, distribution, consumer, retail, waste management, business and industrial services as well as healthcare, software & technology, energy and financial services. You will provide our clients with an integrated due diligence approach that goes beyond traditional CDD output and focus on key value drivers for sponsors and lenders. Our integrated due diligence approach combines our deep operational, functional and industry expertise with high-quality insights that drive value throughout the investment lifecycle.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Assessing market attractiveness by estimating its size and projected growth and reviewing the competitive & regulatory landscape to formulate strategy/deal rationale.
  • Evaluating customer feedback obtained through surveys and interviews.
  • Developing a client-ready written report and providing informed inputs on detailed financial models, based on all areas of study as well as discussions with management and past performance of the company.
  • Managing and prioritizing responsibilities, at times across multiple chargeable and non-chargeable projects, proactively consulting with senior team members, as appropriate.
  • Effectively managing day-to-day client interaction and relationships and continuing to emphasize the capabilities of A&M to clients.
  • Assisting senior team members in sales and business development efforts.
  • Proactively counselling and mentoring junior members of the team.

Who will you be working with?

We are not a typical consulting firm. We are a group of entrepreneurial accounting and strategy professionals who embody the A&M Core Values – integrity, quality, objectivity, fun, personal reward, and inclusive diversity while delivering a tailored and scalable approach to working with private equity, hedge fund, and corporate clients. We present you with opportunities, not a playbook, and we reward you based on performance, not your tenure.

How will you grow and be supported?

As a demonstration of A&M’s strong commitment to its people, we offer benefits to support your career, personal and professional developments. This includes performance-based career progression and promotion process, high-quality practice-wide training programs, a global mobility program, rotation opportunities in other practice areas, employee resource groups, and a health and wellness program. A&M recognizes that our people fuel our growth, and you and your team will be provided with the best available training and development resources, as well as networking opportunities.


  • A minimum of 4-6 years of experience in strategy, M&A advisory, commercial due diligence, or business consulting
  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Business, Economics, Mathematics or Accounting. MBA preferred, but not required
  • High proficiency in MS Excel and PowerPoint
