Full Time
Mazars is looking for an individual to join its global Energy, Infrastructure & Environment team, with the role based in London.

About the team

Mazars' Energy, Infrastructure & Environment practice is trusted by the world's leading investors and developers in the sector to deliver a broad range of services. Within this practice, the Infrastructure Finance business unit provides modelling, model audit, valuations, training and advisory services to clients across EMEA and the Americas, from regional hubs in London, Paris, New York, Toronto, Johannesburg and Delhi.

As a financial modelling practice, Mazars delivers its EMEA modelling assignments through a combination of technical modelling specialists, mostly located in Delhi, and people with broader sector and commercial experience mostly located in London. We are known in the market for our world-leading proprietary methodology and have built up a significant track record globally with some of the largest investors across the sector. We have a particular specialism in delivering complex portfolio models, often multi-jurisdictional, and alongside a breadth of infrastructure experience bring deep expertise across the energy transition space that we are looking to grow further.

About the role

We are now looking for the right person to help drive the business forward. The right person would:
  • be able to lead financial modelling assignments, both through proactive project management and by providing commercial and sector-based direction to a broader team of modellers;
  • have excellent client relationship building skills, combining commitment to first-rate client service with the curiosity to understand the client's business;
  • be able to interpret a client's requirements and translate this into a modelling specification that can be included in proposals and that the team can deliver to;
  • be committed to business development as well as project execution;
  • have significant experience in the energy and infrastructure sector already.

The role requires technical proficiency with Excel-based models, but would not be envisaged to be primarily focused on coding work in practice. The role could be at associate director or at manager level, depending mostly on the candidate's level of experience. At AD level, we would expect more autonomous client relationships, more business development responsibilities and more leadership within the team.

Project Delivery
  • Manage a portfolio of financial modelling engagements in the EMEA region, from proposals through to scoping, development, review and delivery. This will include:
    • Being the main day to day contact with clients, forming long-standing relationships which with help drive repeat business;
    • Financial management of projects, including financial forecasting, billing and debt collection, and reporting on their progress to the Director/Partner;
    • Ensuring the quality of deliverables to meet internal standards and client requirements, and ensuring that best practice modelling is adhered to at all times; and
    • Leading, coaching and reviewing the work of junior modellers.
  • Where required, also help to manage modelling support in the context of transaction advisory work and/or valuation work.
  • Potential to help deliver modelling training courses from time to time.

People and Product Development
  • Help to develop both our models and our team technically by ensuring that they are properly informed by relevant sector dynamics and a commercial understanding of what underpins the models.
  • Help to ensure that our models are visually effective and transparent to use.
  • Find solutions for clients to ensure we are meeting their needs, and use this to help inform our business development strategy.
  • Build broader market relationships and knowledge that will help to ensure that our models are up to date and informed by the latest market developments; help to build the culture of the team so that junior team members also become used to doing this.
  • Help to promote a general culture of learning and development across the team from one job to the next.
  • Potential for line management responsibilities for staff in London.

Business Development and Broader Team Engagement
  • Active member of the wider team, participating in general business development and marketing activities and co-ordinating with other service lines across Mazars.
  • Participate in thought leadership, including public webinars and other marketing efforts.
  • Client development: broaden client relationships to help drive opportunities across other service lines.
  • Build your personal network across the sector.

What are we looking for?

Key requirements for the role:
  • The right person is likely to have several years of experience across modelling and/or deal advisory in the energy and infrastructure sector (at least 4 years for the manager role, or 6 years for the associate director role).
  • Technically strong including, for instance: proven financial modelling and analysis skills, understanding of project structures and ability to interpret, sense-check and run Excel-based financial models with 3-way financial statements, supporting both transactions and asset management, and modelling both operations and finance.
  • Strong sector experience with particular areas of strength in one or more sub-sectors within the energy and infrastructure market.
  • Commercial understanding of project finance structuring, documentation and processes.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and comfortable presenting to senior client personnel.
  • Ability to communicate complicated concepts clearly and concisely - to clients, to trainees and to the team, both in writing and verbally.
