Insolvency & Restructuring Director
We have been instructed to assist one of the Big 4 in scaling up their national restructuring team this year following a significant upturn in new turnaround, corporate side advisory and bank lender review work.
The Partners are looking to prioritise the requirement for Directors who can operate across the core restructuring spectrum but with an emphasis on hiring those with expertise in some of the following fields: formal insolvency, refinancing, turnaround, capital raising, contingency planning, options and lender review, working capital improvement, and pension covenant advisory.
This isn't about hiring Directors that won't make Partner. The team are in a fortunate position in which they have a strong pool of future leaders in the restructuring department but have scope to add to this with highly talented and very commercially minded Directors that want a platform to take their careers to the very top.
As you'd expect, expectations are high, and the Partners will want to meet with experienced business / financial restructuring professionals that are well verse in leading on big ticket insolvencies and complex restructuring projects whilst also having the acumen to win pitches and build relationships with future work referrers.
There is the expectation that applicants come with relevant professional qualifications such as the ACA, ACCA, JIEB but practical hands-on technical experience as well as commercial acumen are the key requirements.
You will need to be able to demonstrate your abilities to lead on big ticket corporate insolvencies and restructuring projects listed above in the advert and have a reputation for strong project delivery as well as the ability to self-market for the purposes of generating and winning new business.
There is only a relatively small handful of organisations operating in the very top tier bracket for leading restructuring work and my client is firmly one of those. Their Partners are market leaders in the financial restructuring and insolvency profession and this is an opportunity to work alongside these individuals in a role that can develop you up to becoming a leading Insolvency & Restructuring Partner.
Feel free to send through a CV / profile or drop me a call for an initial confidential and informal conversation.
