We view our client as one of the top digital organisations in South Africa, who provide marketing and support services to millions of clients across the globe. They are based in very trendy and upmarket offices in Century City, Cape Town. A multi billion-dollar global giant in their field, they are able to attract the very best talent in South Africa, and retain them. They are currently looking for an International M&A / VC / Business Development Support Manager to join their team.

Job description

This International Mergers and Acquisitions / Venture Capital / Business Development Support Manager role requires the services of an experienced manager to oversee and grow the existing team of experts in order to ensure that your division is able to scale its portfolio seamlessly. The role is ideally suited to a thorough and detail-focused former investment banker / venture capitalist with experience in managing small, and medium-sized acquisitions from due diligence through to completion and beyond.

Duties include, but not limited to:

Management of geographically dispersed direct reports and external consultants

Due diligence processes, participating directly where necessary, providing feedback to inform deal negotiations

Deal completion, including integration into group financial reporting and other systems and processes

Regular meeting schedules / agendas / minutes / etc. for ongoing oversight of portfolio companies

Development and implementation of systems for the standardization and effective scaling of all of the above (in particular, acquisition and integration of large amounts of external data and analysis thereof)

Strategically guiding portfolio company technology development for portfolio and group synergies where possible

Ensuring that the group has appropriate visibility into all portfolio companies (build relationships with management, minimize surprises, maximize opportunities for synergy, identify need for intervention / active management early, etc)

This job description is not intended to be an exhaustive list of responsibilities. The job holder may be required to complete any other reasonable duties in order to achieve business objectives.

 

Even the most experienced talent should have the opportunity to expand and improve their skill sets in many advanced areas of knowledge at this employer.   

If you have the right attitude and right aptitude, we can assure you that room for growth at this employer is unprecedented.  

They firmly believe in staying up to date with latest technologies, so you’ll be working with the latest tech at international standards.  

Whilst this is a very modern and fast paced organisation, the atmosphere is also relaxed.  Leave those suits and ties at home, but please wear something. 

Our client doesn’t believe that sitting in traffic for hours each day is necessary so working hours are flexible, with core working hours between 9am and 4pm.   

To keep you healthy, stress free, and happy – they provide nutritious meals (free of course), serve cappuccinos from their coffee bar, provide free access to the gym, and of course there are free massages from their wellness therapist when you need it the most.  

Our client is able to pay top dollar to attract and retain top talent in South Africa and offer excellent end of year bonuses based on company and individual performance.  The company is outperforming though, so for now, the rest is up to you.

Work hard and play hard?  Head on down to the bar every Friday afternoon, try your hand at Poker on Thursday evenings, enjoy regular team building events such as white river rafting, and so much more. 

Most of all they have created a culture second to none.  Small on egos; big on energy.  Possibly the most employee centric client we’ve come across.  Ever.
