Objectives and Key Deliverables

VPS is the leading European service provider for the protection of empty property and construction sites on a temporary basis.

It was acquired by private equity firm PAI Partners in June 2014 as a secondary buy-out, and is taking a “buy-and-build” approach to growth that has seen and will see VPS pursue and conclude a number of acquisitions. In addition, the group is significantly enhancing its portfolio of services and capabilities across existing and new countries Europe.

As a Corporate Development Associate, you will report directly to the Group Corporate Development Director on:
- Mergers & Acquisitions: Participate in identification, execution and due diligence for acquisitions in Germany, France, Netherlands, Italy, Spain & UK (working with external advisers),
- Market entry: Entering new countries (eg Belgium, Poland etc) and entering existing countries with new products and services.

You will be responsible for managing the whole project work for each acquisition preparation process, and will support the Group Director on the meetings and negotiations throughout the M&As. It requires a lot of administrative and project management activities; as we have very ambitious growth goals, this represents a great potential for the consultant to acquire more responsibilities.

- Entry level / Associate consulting experience
- Past experiences in mergers and acquisitions and/or strategy (banking, consulting, strategic planning, start-ups…) desired
- English fluency with (minimum one) additional language capability: French (preferred), German (preferred), Spanish or Italian.
