What you’ll do
In your first couple of years, you’ll get as much exposure to different clients and challenges as possible. You will experience up to three of our business areas within Deals.
Within Business Restructuring Services, this can involve liaising with creditors and all kinds of stakeholders, which calls for tact, sensitivity and assertiveness. And you'll see more than just the finance side of things too. We often have to look at all the factors which may affect the business, both internal and external, and how these can affect a company’s recovery. Whether you're researching, modelling, writing reports, analysing data or developing options and recommendations, your work could well help rescue a business - perhaps saving jobs and ensuring the company can meet its financial obligations. We’ll also give you opportunities to assist the administrators in trading insolvent businesses where you’ll get a chance to take an active role in managing customer, supplier and employee relationships.
