Give to receive

You need experience
Sorry, juniors – our clients require a minimum of 3+ years relevant working experience in M&A, Strategy, or Private Equity. But please do apply when you have reached that threshold!
Be good, be free
We have a strict no a**hole policy – for clients and talents. Even for the highest achievers and most experienced A-players. Our talents are the best in the market, that’s why we don’t decide their rates. You negotiate with your client. We’re just holding hands on both sides of the table.
