Job Description:

In a world of disruption and increasingly complex business challenges, our professionals bring truth into focus with the Kroll Lens. Our sharp analytical skills, paired with the latest technology, allow us to give our clients clarity-not just answers-in all areas of business. We embrace diverse backgrounds and global perspectives, and we cultivate diversity by respecting, including, and valuing one another. As part of One team, One Kroll , you'll contribute to a supportive and collaborative work environment that empowers you to excel.

Transaction Advisory Services (TAS) practice provides seamless analytical advisory through the deal continuum, from transaction origination to closing.

At Kroll, your work will help deliver clarity to our clients' most complex governance, risk, and transparency challenges. Apply now to join One team, One Kroll .


Operating from more than 28 countries and 70 offices, Kroll helps clients realize business goals across M&A, restructuring, financing, and other corporate transactions. We have an established, and truly global, TAS practice, that has multidisciplinary capabilities across financial, tax, operations, and IT / cyber due diligence.

We are rapidly growing market share, to become a major challenger to the traditional Big 4 accounting firms, at a time of unprecedented regulatory and market upheaval.

We are now investing to further grow our Strategy & Commercial Diligence capability in the USA. After the initial success of the CDD investment and growth in London, which complements our broader TAS capabilities, this is a rare opportunity to join - and make your own mark in - a team in its 'high growth' phase, with unmatched benefits and challenges:

  • Key role in shaping and driving the growth of our TAS business in the American and Global markets
  • High levels of responsibility and autonomy
  • Work-winning, client development and execution opportunities based on an issues-led approach across a range of sectors - variety and stretch
  • Opportunities to work alongside colleagues on multi-disciplinary projects as part of a collegiate and entrepreneurial group
  • Flexible and performance-based reward structure that is based on a "one-firm" approach and not constrained by territorial/personal boundaries; and
  • Real opportunity for accelerated progression


  • Work seamlessly with the Managing Director(s) to position Kroll on all relevant private equity and selected corporate transaction deal flows.
  • Support with the identification of new business opportunities and develop long-term business relationships.
  • Build and develop Commercial Due Diligence (CDD) and growth strategy services to Private Equity (PE) and Corporate clients in the Americas.
  • Engage in business development activities to grow both our CDD and overall TAS business in the Americas by marketing services both to external clients and internal partners, developing client networks, and supporting efforts in developing and executing sales and marketing strategies.
  • Identify pre- and post-close business opportunities and enhance go-to market strategies.
  • Develop strategic insights on assets and sectors and take these to market with colleagues.
  • Manage the execution of strategy and commercial due diligence engagements: defining an appropriate scope, leading and coaching team members, and drafting a robust, well-structured report
  • Work closely with the broader Kroll team to ensure the application of sound project management principles and quality assurance at all stages and phases of projects.
  • Manage key project metrics.
  • Understand the capabilities of our wider firm and identify opportunities to cross-sell additional services to our clients; and
  • Play an active role in people initiatives, including recruiting, developing, and retaining staff


  • Bachelor's degree required, MBA highly preferred
  • Minimum of 8 years' experience with a track record in successfully leading and delivering on a breadth of commercial due diligence engagements, and / or deep strategy experience within a sector, possibly acquired through a corporate strategy role.
  • Ambitious, disciplined self-starter, ideally with some experience in business development.
  • Considerable experience in a client-facing strategy discipline at a major strategy, boutique strategy, Big 4 consulting firm, or private equity fund with a specialization in M&A and commercial due diligence and growth strategy
  • Significant experience helping corporations or private equity firms conduct thorough analysis of potential acquisition targets, including assessing the market landscape (structure, size and profitability, drivers of performance, trends, outlook), the target's competitive position (competitive landscape, target's relative financial performance, target's relative offer position), and the viability of the target's revenue and profit forecast and client's investment thesis
  • Demonstrable leadership experience
  • Proven ability to build and maintain a network of industry contacts
  • Demonstrated analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Demonstrated interpersonal and client relationships skills.
  • Proven written and verbal communication skills.
  • European language skills very much valued; and
  • Flexibility to travel, as needed
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills that help represent diverse communities
  • Experience working with diverse teams

We value the ability to operate with flexibility and autonomy whilst being part of a tight-knit, collaborative team who have fun working hard. We don't support a parochial, "eat-what-you-kill" culture and are looking for strong team players who will absolutely buy-in to the longer-term strategic ambitions of the wider business.
