Senior Consultant, Transaction Services

You’ve got big plans. We have opportunities to match, and we’re committed to empowering you to become a better you, no matter what you do.

When you join KPMG you’ll be one of over 207,000 professionals providing audit, tax, advisory and business enablement services across 153 countries.

With the support to do things differently, grow personally and professionally and bring your whole self to work, there’s no limit to the impact you can make. Let’s do this.

KPMG LLP is the Canadian member firm of KPMG and has offices in 33 locations across Canada. The firm’s more than 700 partners and 5,600 employees provide crucial services to many of the public and private business, not-for profit, and public-sector organizations in Canada.

In every economic environment, there are opportunities to create, enhance, and preserve value. Our Deal Advisory professionals help buyers, sellers, private equity investors, governments, and lenders in developing and executing on their value strategies.

By their nature, major transactions such as M&A deals are higher risk and reward than day-to-day business activity. It is important for our clients to remove as much risk as possible by taking advice from experienced advisers — people who have done it before and know what to look for.

We offer start-to-finish support in the acquisition process, including input on strategy, early identification of risk areas, coordination and execution of due diligence investigations (financial and commercial) and input and advice on contract terms geared to reduce risks. We also get involved in assisting our clients with a host of services surrounding closing the transaction and post-deal integration.

Our Deal Advisory team includes the following service lines: Transaction Services, Valuations, Corporate Finance, Restructuring & Turnaround, and Infrastructure Advisory.

Our clients are typically private equity funds, pension funds, large public companies, as well as private corporations. Our people are motivated self-starters with expertise in finance, valuation, tax, accounting and financial reporting. Our network is global.
