Carriera’s M&A, Corporate Development and Private Equity offering focuses on global senior level appointments from vice president to managing director (board appointment) level.

Our aim is to provide our clients with candidates who have a strong academic and professional background, who are dynamic and focused. We have an expansive network of contacts and are always interested in meeting with senior level M&A practitioners with strong origination capability.

Whilst we typically focus on single appointment mandates, tailored carefully to our clients’ needs, we can also manage large-scale recruitment campaigns. Such campaigns include the appointment of multiple hires (team moves) or the careful staging of hires following the implementation of a new desk or team.
