Are you looking for a rewarding career that helps North America’s leading institutions solve their most complex M&A lifecycle challenges? Then look no further, this is the role for you!

What will your typical day look like?

As a Senior Manager, you will build long-term relationships with senior executive clients (i.e., C-suite, EVP, SVP level). You will also identify and lead business development opportunities; assume overall leadership in the delivery of projects, supported by a core team of consultants; apply a strong knowledge of multiple industries and business practices; contribute to the growth and development of Deloitte’s M&A Consulting team; and create a learning environment through leadership, participating in the development and delivery of industry training programs.

Senior Managers are leaders within Deloitte consulting’s SAMA portfolio (Strategy, Analytics and Mergers & Acquisitions), principally responsible for business development and overall project delivery leadership. Senior Managers bring deep industry knowledge and expertise, such that they are viewed both internally and externally as “subject matter experts.” Additionally, Senior Managers are positioned directly below Partners and play an important internal role in firm management, leading practice-building initiatives and actively contributing to the practice’s distinct culture as organizational role models.

Our practitioners are involved in all phases of the M&A lifecycle, including strategy, due diligence, operational readiness, pre- and post-close integration/separation planning and execution, and follow-on transformation.

We are actively building our presence in the Toronto, Montreal and Calgary markets. Candidates will be asked to select either Toronto, Montreal or Calgary as their primary office.
