Deal Origination Lead - SME PE - Melbourne

Batch Executive

Melbourne, AUS

$150,000 - $200,000


  • SME Private Equity

  • Deal Origination

  • Melbourne based

Exceptionally rare SME Private Equity opportunity has been created for a deal origination specialised based in Melbourne. The team already has an enviable track record after closing four deals in the past 18 months, with plenty more in the pipeline.

As a key member in the team, the Deal Origination Lead will initially be tasked with the origination of a meaningful and high quality level of deal flow, in order to execute the initial investments. Once viable investments are originated, you will also be able to play an active role in assessing, executing, managing and ultimately realising those investments as required.

Key attributes for the successful candidate are as follows:

• Have a strong sense of the contributing factors to a high performing company and successful private equity investment
• A successful track record of working with Board level executives to deliver meaningful strategic and operational change.
• Strong origination capability evidenced by a solid network and business development approach that will support the sourcing of investment opportunities
• The candidate needs to be familiar/comfortable with all facets of the investment lifecycle, including origination; preparation of internal investment memos and presentation to the investment committee; Due diligence; Board level interaction and strategy formation and implementation; as well as exit planning
• Entrepreneurial and independent individual who is able to manage their own agenda, whilst working in a closely coordinated manner with the Partner
• Direct investment experience in a private company environment is preferable but not an absolute requirement. The more evidence the candidate has of working closely with senior executives within corporates in an investment/advisory capacity the better
• Demonstrable intellect is a pre-requisite to applying for this role

Candidates will ideally have had several years SME Private Equity experience. Alternatively, we will consider those professionals with Corporate Finance (Big 4 M&A / Transaction Services), Investment Banking or Strategy experience.
