  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • During my time with my team, I was involved in several M&A projects. I was responsible for conducting market research for an upcoming client pitch and then condensed my research for the pitch itself. I also took on a project management role where I helped team members manage communications and meetings for due diligence for an upcoming acquisition. I was responsible for overseasing email communication and keeping documents up to date with relevant information


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • i have learnt alot of technical skills about the M&A industry. Previously, I was unsure about specific jargon and how deals were conducted, but throughout my time i learnt so much about the industry which was useful through various courses and communcation with my team. I also developed my professional skills, particuarly my professional communication skills, since I was responsible for some work that would be presented to clients as well as keeping on top of communications
