5G, GigaNet, IoT, smart cities & homes, and media—VodafoneZiggo’s world is changing at lightning speed. The Corporate Development Manager will use M&A and corporate projects as tools to help perfectly position the company to keep up with those changes. They will take the lead on complex, multidisciplinary projects with tremendous impact and regular interaction with senior executives.

Vacancy: Corporate Development Manager

The Corporate Development Manager will report to the Director of Corporate Development. They will be part of VodafoneZiggo’s Corporate Development Team, which is responsible for evaluating, selecting, and implementing corporate development opportunities. 

The two main themes for the Corporate Development Manager will be M&A and corporate projects, like restructuring. They will also work on strategic partnerships and innovation programs that have not yet found a permanent place in the organization. That means the Corporate Development Manager will be the bridge between strategy and business as usual. 

The Corporate Development Manager will have the opportunity to take the lead on projects and deals that have a major impact on the value of the company. They’ll get to know our business inside and out.” – Jan van Dijk, Director Corporate Development

Communication and stakeholder management are essential for the Corporate Development Manager. They will take the helm in managing complex, multidisciplinary projects and M&A deals that often involve many people, both internally and externally, from Technology, Marketing, Finance and Legal to banks, multiple advisors and law firms. The Corporate Development Manager will provide substantive guidance for the project teams and bear final responsibility for the results. They will need the skills to engage successfully at every level, from specialists deep within the organization to board members. 

Managing complex projects requires exceptional analytical and conceptual skills and strategic thinking. The Corporate Development Manager should be able to assimilate new information in a flash and distill complex issues to accessible and intuitive storylines that management can use to quickly make the right decisions. They will also conduct the necessary analyses (supported by internal and external specialists where necessary), such as opportunity scans for M&A, due diligence investigations, synergy analyses, business cases, company valuations, deal structures and implementation plans.

The Corporate Development Manager is a complex role with a large and diverse stakeholder base and challenging subject matter. But it is also a unique opportunity to work in a dynamic industry, have a genuine impact and truly get to know VodafoneZiggo. That makes this role an excellent steppingstone to a leadership position in one of the company’s many business units.
