Portfolio Focused Associate, Top-Tier Growth Equity Investor, London, UK

Reference: 6002 /16F

This is a fantastic opportunity for a top-tier strategy and management consultant who would be interested in working with the portfolio companies of a leading private equity firm

Our client is an established, international growth and private equity firm which is looking to establish a portfolio improvement team in its office in London. The investment team has previously been responsible for working with the portfolio companies, post-acquisition, but the organisation feels a group whose sole focus is working with these assets is now needed. The investment team is of a high calibre and the platform has a strong track record. The culture of the office is entrepreneurial, proactive and supportive. You will be the first external hire in the team and will work closely with one other senior member of the team as well as with the investment team in London and other portfolio experts in other international offices.


  • You will be involved, hands-on, with all of the assets in the European portfolio
  • You will focus on both top and bottom line improvements and will also be involved in leading M&A strategy for the assets
  • You may also be responsible for helping to implement internal structural improvements to these businesses e.g. new IT infrastructure or accounting systems


  • You will have associate level experience from a blue chip consulting firm or from a similar team in another private equity firm
  • You will have previous experience of large scale strategic and operational improvement projects
  • Experience of working on commercial due diligence processes is advantageous but not essential
  • Fluency in at least one European language is essential
  • You are likely to have an entrepreneurial mindset and must be a self-starter as you will be the first hire into this team - you will need to be willing to ‘roll up your sleeves’ and be hands-on
