Driving deals through digital:

  • You’ll work with companies to target multiple digital assets at the same time and help them integrate those assets to deliver maximum value quickly.

The opportunity: your next adventure awaits:

At Strategy and Transaction, we pride ourselves on being able to tackle our clients’ most difficult challenges. We do this by bringing together a team of diverse thinkers from all over the world, who are then able to work together to provide integrated solutions. Our clients can also rely on us to provide guidance when it comes to making decisions like buying or selling a business, separating or integrating different aspects of their business, or even just considering a new business strategy.

SaT teams are composed of experts from a variety of industries and locations who work together to assess clients’ capital agendas. This allows us to address their most complex issues in a comprehensive manner. With your skills in global business and cultural intelligence, as well as your agility and capacity to deal with ambiguity, you will have the opportunity to work on fascinating projects and help build a better world.

What we look for:

  • We’re looking for people who are innovative and have an agile, growth-oriented mindset – people for whom what they know matters, but who also understand that the right mindset is key to determine success. Our company is rapidly changing and we need team members who are able to work in an agile way and keep pace with our growth.
  • At our company, we value people who are curious and driven by purpose. We want to work with those who see opportunities instead of challenges. People who constantly seek out new answers and better questions in order to build a stronger foundation for the future.
  • We value inclusivity here and are looking for individuals who will seek out and embrace diverse perspectives. At our company, we believe that differences should be valued and that by working together inclusively, we can build a safe and trusting environment for everyone.
