Job ID R_053530-en

Mergers & Acquisitions are critical to the global markets and they come in all sizes…the block buster deal that is splashed across the news wire to the 20 person start up that just merged and doubled in size.

The Partner role within Mercer is a Senior Leadership role.  You will use your industry contacts and deep knowledge of the M&A landscape to win business, develop intellectual capital and lead domestic and global engagements. Your ability to understand the dynamics of the transaction, marshal the right team members and resource will set the table for success. Working with our world class consultants and our client’s Executive teams you will help set out road maps for buyers and sellers in the due diligence process.   Leveraging your deep understanding of benefits and human capital you will drive post-merger strategies in health, wealth and careers to build the company’s most important asset, their people.

If you are ready to be challenged intellectually, be pushed to lead and make the call on life altering scenarios, all under the pressures of M&A deadlines, read on and consider if you have the right experiences.

Share how you have influenced Financial and HR executives, C-Suite members (i.e. CEO, COO, CFO) in designing and implementing best practices:

  • Organizational design / cost synergy modeling and execution.
  • Leadership assessment and team development
  • Cultural alignment and roadmap development
  • Addressing retention and flight risks of top talent
  • Compensation and total rewards strategies
  • Benefits design in health and wealth

Highlight your relationship building skills in a highly complex matrix driven environment

  • Share how you build client relationships through your knowledge of industry trends and highlight your ability to establish trusted advisor status before the sale
  • Detail examples of how you build internal relationships and marshal the right people and resources to close a deal

Discuss how you have contributed to your company’s market presence through:

  • Publishing articles, developing cases studies, public speaking or the development of marketing material (internal or external).
    • Dive into major challenges and opportunities within your industry and your thought leadership in address these issues

If you can discuss these topics in-depth submit your resume and let’s talk.
