Mergermarket is an Acuris media company that provides the advisory, corporate and financial communities with forward-looking intelligence, analysis and data that you simply can't get anywhere else.

The candidate will work within Mergermarket’s editorial equities division and help cover private equity-related mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

The role involves breaking news on Private Equity-led auction processes as well as interviewing Private Equity partners and company senior executives on corporate growth and exit strategies.
