Private Equity

Is operational consulting experience (i.e. big 4) valued in the Private Equity world?

I would love to break in to this sector and have so far focused on change management consulting for 1 1/2 yrs. I know the top funds only recruit from MBB and a few smaller strat firms (in the consulting space at least) but loking at advertisements some of the smaller funds seem more flexible on background.

Anyone any experience in this?

hi anon,

from what I have seen so far, is that PE houses are very keen to get ex-consultants in. As you say most of them are after strategy backgrounds (browsing through Permira's team short profiles on their website makes quite an iteresting read). However, very often, they also value Big4 experience. What I have seen is that they appreciate transactional (advisory) services as these guys did loads of due diligence work. I am not sure if change mgt is a hot topic for them though....if you really want to make the move, I suggest to do some other work within your company, to get topics such as valuation, due diligence, cash flow forecasting etc. on your CV. Are you doing a qualification with your big4 (cima/aca etc)? might add some value for them too...

good luck
