Consultant Gig #905–UK–Experienced Energy Supply Company Consultants

Our global strategic partner’s Energy Team is looking to enhance the package of services it offers to energy supply companies (‘ESCs’) by partnering with individuals/boutiques with specific experience of raising debt and/or equity, or running M&A processes, for energy suppliers. Whilst our strategic partner has a strong M&A offering, advising ESCs is quite niche. We think broadening the web of contacts and experience in the sector will help make our offer even more compelling.

Energy suppliers in the UK have faced significant financial pressure over recent years, with over 30 exiting the market during 2021.
