Mergers & Acquisition Consultant

Job description

Mergers & Acquisition Consultant

Flexible working offered alongside market leading package

The insurance broking profession is changing, and at a rapid pace.

And you've got a choice. Ride along with it, or join the people who are actually inspiring the change.

If you like the sound of the latter, then this is your opportunity to make your own impact on how insurance broking is transformed globally.

You'll be joining the successful M&A team here at IDEX Consulting, in a newly created role to help develop our offering across the global insurance broking market.

More about the team…

The last five years in insurance broking has seen a huge amount of M&A activity which has completely shifted the landscape of broking. And there is no sign of that slowing down.

An ageing demographic of brokerage owner, combined with huge interest from global investment houses to develop operations in broking, has resulted in a hotbed of opportunity and activity.

IDEX's M&A team, established in 2020 have already influenced much of this transformational change in broking. We are uniquely placed given our strategic partnerships with large broking houses, combined with our in-depth regional connection to the UK and global broking scene.

We essentially influence and drive deals. We're an exciting team to be a part of.

As leaders in this field, we support broking owners through their business journey, understanding their DNA, diving deep into their business and supporting them through the delicate process of broker acquisition.

It's a huge step for many broking owners to consider their exit or sale strategy however IDEX have cultivated a slick, professional service which allows us to consult wisely on options, time-frames and financial/legal support.

Our team is headed up by our Client Solutions Director, who is recognised throughout the UK as a major thought leader in the broking space.

Roles and Responsibilities:

  • Generating, cultivating and nurturing new broker leads
  • Liaising with "buyers" and "sellers"
  • Pipeline Management
  • Advising brokers on growth
  • Deal negotiation
  • Client management
  • Working closely with our UK consultants to develop new opportunities

More about IDEX…

We are an established Talent Management & Business Growth Consultancy with a unique proposition in the market. Originally founded as a specialist General Insurance recruitment consultancy back in 2006, our mission was to develop a professional recruitment business which focuses on adding value to our partners. We have come a long way since those humble beginnings, last year placing over 550 candidates with a broad spectrum of clients across the UK, Europe, Middle East and the US.

We have also evolved our client proposition, cementing ourselves as a leading Business Growth Consultancy within our core areas, General Insurance, Financial Services & Legal. As a cutting-edge business, we help engineer growth for our clients… whether that's in strategic talent acquisition, mergers & acquisitions, management consultancy or helping define structural improvements.

We're very different from mainstream transactional businesses, because we act as strategic partners to our clients, demonstrated by us launching our pioneering Broker Growth Program, which is a one of its kind solution to secure growth for our partners.

Many of our senior team have backgrounds in our chosen markets, so we've got deep knowledge and expertise across our practice areas. On joining our business, you are at the very forefront of the UK broking market and we work as strategic partners to insurance businesses both in the UK and globally.

Are you the right fit?...

Ideally, you'll already have a background in the commercial insurance profession.

Having some degree of understanding of the intermediary markets will really help you get up to speed in the role and do the bit that's going to excite you most, consulting with your partner clients.

So, your experience will likely come from operating in a broker facing role, but you can also thrive here if you are in broking itself or perhaps operating in a periphery service provider to the insurance market.

The DNA of the team here is all about exploring opportunities and providing clear and valuable consultative advice to broking vendors and buyers.

You'll have sound business acumen, a natural gravitas enabling you to work with C-suite, and a tenacious attitude to dig out opportunities and create deals in the market.

Remote working and market leading package are available

If you would like a confidential discussion in the first instance, then get in touch with Colin McKenna (Client Solutions Director) on 07384548579 / and don't worry if you don't have a CV, just send him an email to get in touch.
