Corporate finance – start shaping your business career

Join our Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) team within corporate finance on a 10 week paid internship and discover what it’s really like to work in business. Gain hands-on experience, build a network of contacts and get advice from our expert mentors.

Please note that we will only accept applicants who are currently in their first or second year of university. If you perform well, you could be given the opportunity to join one of our Graduate training programmes that will help you kick-start your business career.

If you are in the final year of university or have already graduated, please revisit our careers website and look at our current graduate positions.

What does our M&A team do?

Our mergers and acquisitions team sits within the corporate finance department at RSM, which is one of the most active corporate finance advisers in the UK, advising on more than 1,000 deals in the past five years.

We advise private shareholders and management teams that are looking to sell their business, raise money for growth, or carry out a management buy-out. Our M&A team also advise companies on identifying and executing acquisitions. We advise our clients throughout the entire transaction lifecycle to ensure they maximise value and achieve the best possible deal. This includes pitching to new clients, helping them prepare the business for a transaction, researching the options available, and negotiating the terms of the deal.

At RSM, we work with clients across a range of sectors, including technology, manufacturing, and business services, amongst others. No two days are the same in M&A, and you are likely to be involved in preparing pitches, producing sector research, and analysing a company’s financial performance early on. During your time at RSM you will have the opportunity to hit the ground running and make meaningful contributions on the projects you work on from day one.

What can you expect?

In our M&A team, you will be working on live projects, building company profiles, sitting in on client meetings and assisting the M&A team when needed. You will be given responsibility from day one. You’ll learn what makes a business attractive to investors and buyers, and the possible funding options for companies looking to grow. This hands-on experience is invaluable as you take the next steps in your career.

At RSM, you’ll benefit from on-the-job training from more senior members of the team and gain access to our internal training courses that will help you develop in the role.
