  • Respond to client queries regarding the status and progress of a project.
  • Dealing with various people matters, either in the role as a People Manager, or as coach / mentor for others within the team.
  • For more complex assignments, reviewing liquidation, other statutory documents or distribution documents prepared by Associate/Senior Associate/Manager in the team, to pass on to the Liquidator for final sign off.
  • Monitoring the time incurred against the original budget, having fee conversation with clients and raising bills for a portfolio of clients.
  • Responding to client queries regarding the status and progress of a project.

The business is open to various different backgrounds from either those with experience operating in an insolvency capacity with exposure to sizeable formal appointments or someone who understands company structures and has operates in some form of restructuring capacity at either a bank or in industry.
