Deloitte - Assistant Manager

Your opportunity
Working with the leading due diligence service provider in the European Securitisation industry
The Securitisation team provides transaction support, advice and assurance on controls and accounting systems and other advisory services to the structured finance industry. In an ever evolving economic, political and regulatory world, we understand the industry and the issues our clients face. The combination of our specialist skills, industry expertise and on-going investment in this area allows us to anticipate complex business problems for our clients and recommend appropriate action.

Your role
The successful candidate will assist in the provision of a range of different service offerings provided by the Securitisation Team, which may include:

  • Project management and performance of due diligence and ‘agreed upon procedure’ (AUP) engagements (predominantly relating to securitisation transactions or whole loan portfolio transactions), including:
    - Internal client take on procedures – helping ensure we know we know who we are working for.
    - Drafting and review of engagement letters (with guidance from the team) - helping ensure we negotiate the appropriate terms and conditions with each client. 
    - Scoping of engagements – helping ensure we perform the work our client needs.
    - Leading onsite fieldwork, working with and leading other members of the team.
    - Drafting of reports, writing up results of work performed and overseeing drafting of report sections by junior members of the team. 
    - Resolution of any client queries.
    - Supporting the senior team with the demanding requirements of a transaction project cycle.

  • Working effectively in diverse teams within an inclusive team culture where people are recognised for their contribution.

  • Assisting our sister teams on due diligence and assurance type engagements in support of a variety of structured finance type transactions. This will involve the learning and understanding of the assets and to confirm various data points to certain documentation and systems. 

  • Taking a leading role in business support activities including training, social activities, market research and ongoing client relationship development.

    Your work, your choice

How long does impact take? How long is a piece of string? How many seconds does a solution contain? How can we possibly tell? After all, impact can be huge or small. Immediate or years in the making. At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk. 
We, therefore, carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. If the working pattern you are looking for is not specifically indicated below, we are happy to discuss alternative arrangements.

Location: London, with occasional domestic and international travel.
Suggested work pattern: Permanent full-time, with an opportunity for some home working.

Being a Leader at Deloitte
Cultural fit and purpose-led leadership is crucial for Deloitte. Our leaders always set the example and inspire their colleagues. They make quality time for people and take an interest in them. They know what matters to people - both inside and outside work – and value them as individuals; always finding opportunities to develop them while showing respect and appreciation.
We expect colleagues at all levels to embrace and live our purpose and our leadership culture by challenging themselves to identify issues that are most important for our clients, our people, and for society and make an impact that matters. We know leadership comes in all shapes and sizes, but we require five leadership imperatives from all of our people:

 We live our purpose: we act as a role model, embracing and living our purpose and values, and recognising others for the impact they make
• We develop talent: we develop high-performing people and teams through challenging and meaningful opportunities
• We drive performance: we deliver exceptional client service; maximise results and drive high performance from people while fostering collaboration across businesses and borders
• We believe positive influence can make an impact that matters: we influence clients, teams, and individuals positively, leading by example and establishing confident relationships with increasingly senior people
• We move, together, towards a strategic direction: we understand key objectives for clients and Deloitte, aligning people to objectives and setting priorities and direction
