We’ll help you succeed

You’ll be a Business Restructuring Manager proactively managing smaller projects or distinct elements of larger projects, with limited input from senior colleagues, as well as being responsible for guiding junior team members.

Alongside this, you’ll continue to develop your existing relevant technical and accountancy knowledge through on-the-job experience and a variety of training opportunities. In addition, there are a range of opportunities to become involved in business development initiatives.

This role is responsible to a designated senior manager, director or partner on specific cases and ultimately to a dedicated counselling manager.

The Business Restructuring team works on a wide variety of dynamic projects and the candidate will receive exposure to a large number of assignments across both the insolvency and advisory teams. This is an exciting opportunity for anyone looking for a constant variety of unique challenges.

ROLE DESCRIPTION

The role requires strong financial analysis skills with the successful candidate able to identify and investigate key issues in a restructuring scenario, challenging information provided where appropriate. Excellent excel skills and an ability to undertake accurate and relevant analysis and interrogate financial models are essential.

The successful candidate will be responsible for preparing draft Independent Business Reviews and other written output for review and therefore the ability to produce high quality documents/ presentations that are capable of meeting stakeholder expectation is also required.

In addition, you’ll be able to quickly build up a strong rapport with management in often difficult and highly pressured circumstances.

The role will provide an opportunity to work with an experienced partner-led team with exposure to a wide range of assignments and industries.

INSOLVENCY STREAM

In addition, the successful candidate should also have a good understanding of Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidations and Company Voluntary Arrangements.

Experience of contingency planning and options reviews as well as the production of financial models would be advantageous.

You’ll also understand the key areas of compliance and risk as well as have the ability to produce written reports to a high standard, ready for director or partner review. Knowledge of IPS and strong Excel and Powerpoint skills will also be key.

The role will require the individual to proactively progress an insolvency caseload, reporting to and working directly with senior colleagues, as well as managing junior staff.

  • Assume day to day responsibility for smaller projects or distinct elements of larger projects across all stages in both the Advisory and Insolvency streams
  • Support senior members of the team to deliver on a range of assignments, as well as guide junior colleagues
  • Review, compile and analyse company information
  • Undertake financial analysis and prepare financial models
  • Maintain a thorough understanding of statutory and compliance processes and deadlines

  • Hold a relevant professional qualification (ICAEW/ ACCA), with an appropriate amount of experience
  • An insolvency qualification is desirable, but not essential
  • Up to date understanding of regulatory and statutory requirements
  • Strong working knowledge of Excel, Word, PowerPoint and IPS
