Alan Mitchell are seeing recruitment opportunities in Germany with an International M&A Advisory House, who are opening a new office and employing people to expand their M&A Advisory, Industrials and Aerospace sectors.

One of the advantages of working for an M&A Advisory house is the exposure they offer to clients and the opportunities to travel and meet senior people, compared to that of a Bulge Bracket bank.

Germany’s economy is not as badly affected as that of France, which has slumped further due to political and market uncertainties. The decision by Standard and Poor’s to downgrade the credit rating of France this week, has only added to uncertainty.

As a result we are seeing a new trend with European Banks looking to recruit candidates from London. European employers view candidates with London Investment banking experience very positively, good news for UK clients, who may not at this moment have so many opportunities in London.
