Where you can focus

Within Advisory you can choose to work in one of three business areas. Each of these is split into a number of dedicated practices:

Performance Improvement

  • In a world of continuous business challenges, our clients are faced with a constant need to generate long-term, sustainable growth. As part of our Performance Improvement team you will help provide independent, objective and high-value business advice to the
    world’s most successful companies.

IT Advisory

  • Our IT Advisory professionals work with commercial and public sector organizations. They provide independent advice on how clients’ IT operations can support their business strategy and its implementation. Working with them you’ll help to provide insights into organizational culture and help align a client’s technology with their people and processes.


  • Working in Risk, you’ll be offering our clients more than protection. You’ll also be helping them make better and faster decisions, reduce costs, and improve performance. It’s a fast-moving area, as global risks change at a dramatic pace, so you’ll be helping clients continuously evaluate their risk management processes and identify the risks that matter.


  • You might prefer to work in one of our Cross-Advisory teams. Here you’ll learn specific technical skills and work within our Performance Improvement, Risk and IT Risk & Assurance groups. These teams are: People and Organizational Change, Program Advisory and Strategic Direction.

Information Technology Risk & Assurance

  • IT is a significant factor in driving business success. Working in ITRA you’ll help clients rationalize IT costs, manage their overall IT risk position and deliver value from IT. You’ll also have the challenge of working alongside clients to manage their IT risks in line with their business strategy, giving them the confidence that their organization’s key IT-related risks are identified, understood and managed effectively.

M&A Advisory

  • Today, more than ever, organizations must plan carefully for growth and analyze their capital agenda and related transactions in the context of their overall business strategy. As part of our M&A team you’ll help identify the right transaction and capital strategy
    for clients.

Transaction Real Estate

  • In this dynamic and complex market, you’ll help clients develop and execute real estate transactions by providing objective and responsive advice. You’ll offer a dedicated and committed service to assist clients in achieving the potential of their real estate assets, portfolios or companies.

Project Finance

  • Working in this award-winning team, you’ll focus on Private Finance Initiative (PFI) and Public Private Partnership (PPP) projects. You’ll learn about key infrastructure sectors, from energy to transport – enabling you to provide highly valued independent advice.

Transaction Support

  • A transaction can be one of the most complex and risky business propositions our clients can undertake. You will help them achieve the best possible outcome, from initial strategic assessment to implementation and post-integration. Your aim will be to improve their negotiating position and accelerate a smooth transaction with minimal disruption.


  • Join our market-leading Restructuring practice and you will help local and global clients change their organizations throughout the whole economic cycle. You’ll add to your technical knowledge with in-depth industry experience, building your understanding of the specific competitive challenges our clients face.

Transaction Tax

  • Every transaction has tax implications. Working with a worldwide network of professional advisors you’ll combine perse cross-border transaction experience with local tax knowledge across a broad
    spectrum of industry sectors. This way you’ll help clients make informed decisions and navigate the tax implications of every transaction.

Operational Transaction Services

  • In this business area you’ll help clients drive operational value from their capital strategy. You’ll learn how to develop the right plan for complex integrations, pestments and carve-outs – and how to implement it properly. You’ll play a key role in an integrated
    approach that focuses on our clients’ financial, tax and operational needs.

Valuation & Business Modelling

  • As a transaction professional you will help clients evaluate and confirm their capital and growth strategies. You will work with clients in areas such as understanding the specific value proposition for  business holdings and investments, and identifying non-core assets for pesting.
