The best place to learn the craft
We seek entrepreneurial people who will rise to the challenge of becoming partner and are driven by building something greater, people that can independently manoeuvre themselves around all types of assignments.
We work with the most sophisticated clients in the Nordic market, both financial sponsors and industrials, that demand the highest possible quality in our advise. We therefore strive for intellectual excellence and variation in our organisation that can advise the introvert, the extrovert, the analytical, the “shooting-from-the-hip”, the leader, the follower, the structured, the messy and the “loose cannon”… Luckily the world is not a perfect place, the existence of corporate issues, problems and challenges is what justifies our existence.
We provide unparalleled transaction exposure and a steep learning curve. All our people should eventually master our craft and thrive on being a trusted advisor building long-term personal relationships. Our ambition is to offer our people a rewarding and flexible workplace. We believe in steep learning curves and that individual development comes from client exposure and responsibility.
