Restructuring Origination Director

Location: London, England
Contract Type: Permanent
Specialisation: Insolvency & Restructuring
Salary: Additional benefits & bonus
REF: BBBH231887_1554810219

We've been instructed by one of the Big 4 to conduct a search for an Origination Director to sit in the London based Restructuring team that advises on large complex distressed situations.

This is a leadership role that has scope to transition up to Associate Partner and Partner thereafter. The ideal candidate will therefore need to have a track record in revenue generation, an entrepreneurial spirit and strong commercial awareness to spot business opportunities and develop c-suite executive relationships with internal and external stakeholders.

The restructuring team uses technology and external resources to scan the market and identity distressed opportunities across all sectors with the view to formulating a watchlist for the team to use as a way of ensuring targeted marketing activity. This function is led by professionals working within the core restructuring team, however there is now a need to appoint a full time senior resource to operate as the Origination Director overseeing the whole operation.

Aside from overseeing the restructuring / debt origination hub team, you will be responsible for developing strong relationships with internal sector teams and departments to maximise the firm-wide success and connectivity on potential special situation engagements. You will initiate new ideas and campaigns, engage in marketing activities with existing and new potential clients and be supporting the Restructuring Partners in initial meetings with newly originated external stakeholders.

The team are looking to hire a Director with very strong business development skills to take a lead on business origination and someone with an extensive understanding of debt and distressed situations NOT non-distressed origination. This is a crucial part of the selection process as they want to ensure that the person coming in to the team has a prior track record of originating deals of a debt focus either in a PE firm / investment bank / professional services environment.

This is a great opportunity to join one of the leading restructuring teams in the UK in a leadership capacity with scope to progress up to Partner.
