BAF® Request: SYD-421-Senior Consultants



A new ICG client is currently seeking 2 or 3 experienced senior consultants on a short-term contract basis. One engagement is an 8 week strategy project and the second engagement is a 4 week commercial due diligence (CDD).

The Role

The client needs two Associate Principal level management consultants with extensive commercial due diligence and solid strategy experience.

Ideally the candidates should have:

  • 10+ years of business/commercial experience including 3+ years of strategy consulting experience
  • must have fluent verbal and written English
  • very strong verbal communication skills
  • very strong PowerPoint skills with the ability to structure a clear storyline supported with high quality insightful slides containing high quality analysis and clear findings.

Candidates must also be able to:

  • effectively lead a team of 3 to 5 consultants/industry experts to work on parallel work streams
  • set/agree daily priorities every morning to ensure the required outputs are delivered by each team member on a daily basis

Each project will be supported by an experienced part-time Principal and/or Director from the client who will provide guidance and a sounding board through both engagements.

The first engagement is focused on developing an expansion strategy for a medical services business and will run for 8 weeks. The client wants assistance with:

  • Validating the growth strategy
  • Conducting detailed market diligence
  • Identifying key value drivers and appropriate market entry strategy/operating model
  • Identifying and completing preliminary due diligence on proposed targets
  • Conducting detailed due diligence and deal execution on prioritised targets

The second engagement is a 4 week high profile CDD focused on an acquisition of a large structural steel products manufacturing and distribution business. The focus of this CDD is on quantifying the realistic EBITDA upside potential across 6 business units. This will be assessed through interviews; an assessment of the target’s operations; financial analysis; and financial scenario modelling. We have a steel manufacturing expert on the team as well as several people with strong operational backgrounds who you will have access to.
