About the team
We have an exciting opportunity for a new Senior Associate to join our MTAG team.
The MTAG market segment works closely with Chief Officer-level directors of privately-owned and Private Equity-backed companies, key contacts within Private Equity houses or other potential purchasers. The objective of our work is to ensure that the management team’s equity or other incentives are structured in a commercially and tax efficient manner, in order to align interests between management and the investors and to motivate and retain key executives of the business. Often the work is time pressured, fast moving and confidential so requires some flexibility from our team.
About the role
The emphasis of our work is tax structuring projects during a transaction. Often that will involve a third party buyer but we also work on equity resets, joiners/leavers, or assignments linked to a float process.
The key issues that we look at are in relation to management shareholders and often involve working with our international network. Our work focuses on both acquisitions, sales, re-structuring and re-financing projects public listings and we work closely with the rest of London Region Tax, the Corporate Tax and M&A group, Corporate Finance, Transaction Services, Business Recovery Services, Valuations, Reward and Legal teams within PwC.
Our main clients include the management shareholders of a company, the company directly, or Private Equity houses.

Development of yourself and others is an expected part of the culture at PwC.
This is a fantastic role for someone who is looking to build valuable front line transaction and commercial experience and enhance their technical and client handling skills.
