We have partnered with one of the leading American advisory firms to help them achieve their headcount growth target this year within the core corporate finance and financial restructuring team.

They are recruiting across the different experience grades although hiring at Associate Director and Director level is the priority. The team are inundated with new assignments in lender side advisory and the pipeline of work is looking consistently healthy and buoyant for the second half of the year.

The team focuses on the strategic, operational, financial and capital needs of many businesses across various sectors and the Associate Directors and Directors in the team are expected to lead on the larger and more complex engagements.

These assignments are broad across the advisory spectrum and can include due diligence, business review, cash and working capital management, financial restructuring, valuation, operational restructuring, options analysis, performance improvement, contingency planning and insolvency cases.

You will day to day project manage each of the core engagements assigned to your team and shall assist the Managing Directors with the structuring of the engagement, the business planning and overall deliverables to the often tight and time pressured deadlines.

Aside from the delivery of work, management of the team and overall leadership in the department as a member of the senior management team, you will also take a lead role in business development activity.

You will hunt out leads, conduct research and come up with various angles and strategies to win work out in the market. Preparing pitch documents, leading formal pitches and building relationships in the firm's existing network as well as the wider market will all form key aspects to this role.

Those with experience working on predominately lender and company side financial restructuring engagements will be key and you will need to be a qualified accountant (ACA / ACCA) with first time passes.

The culture can be demanding at times based on the high standards the team and overall firm have set but they are an elite organisation and you will be given every opportunity to progress right through to the top.

Should you be looking for a new challenge in the financial restructuring market in an organisation leading the way for this type of work then please do get in touch and we can talk you through next steps.
