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 global leading professional services firm that provides advisory, business performance improvement and turnaround management services.  

With over 7000 people across 5 continents and based in 70 locations, we deliver excellent 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.

Our non-hierarchical, hands-on-approach, small expert teams and an international focus are characterizing for A&M. 

A&M’s Private Equity Performance Improvement Services (PEPI) practice focuses on serving upper middle market and large cap private equity firms who have engaged A&M to help improve financial and operating results at their portfolio companies. 

As a Business Development Analyst (m/f/d) within our PEPI practice you will manage the following key responsibilities, supported by the European Private Equity Performance team: 

  • Implementing new business development and generating new clients by elaborating pitches but also client proposals and marketing collateral
  • As an internal account manager you ensure the smooth development of key accounts and evaluate their progress through data consolidation and participating in key account review meetings
  • Conducting in-depth company research (general overviews, review of services, competition and industry segments) and research of trends and latest developments in the market
  • Implementing basic financial analysis including profit & loss review, cost trend analysis and benchmarking against industry peers
  • Developing outside-in analyses on investment targets and on Private Equity portfolio companies

At best you already have some relevant consulting experience and the following qualifications:                        

  • Master‘s degree or MBA
  • Knowledge or previous experience of the Private Equity market would be ideal but is not as essential as a keen interest in the sector;
  • Strong analytical skills with a basic financial acumen including understanding of financial statements, key financial metrics and revenue & expenses trends;
  • Excellent interpersonal skills to form strong working relationships with members of the team and those of other practices;
  • Good Excel and PowerPoint skills;
  • Fluency in English and German 

If you want to be part of A&M’s success story and would like to grow in a dynamic environment, we are looking forward to your application.
