About the Team
The Midlands Business Recovery Services Delivery Team comprises c.55 professional staff across two offices in Birmingham and Castle Donnington that provides both advisory and executory services to a wide range of banks, corporates and other stakeholders.

We handle a significant volume of middle market trading administrations, and we act as advisors and consultants to a wide range of lenders, companies and their stakeholders. Our cases span many commercial and industrial sectors and we are able to call upon the specialist resources that reside elsewhere in the firm, which often makes the difference between an acceptable outcome and an exceptional one.

We also operate across all segments of the market providing advisory services to lenders, creditors, and companies in troubled financial situations. This can include financial and operational restructuring, cost improvement, working capital management and delivering innovative commercial solutions to distressed businesses.

Other areas which we are involved in include Accelerated Mergers and Acquisitions, and advisory work in the public sector, Pensions and Real Estate.
About the role
We're looking for a Manager / Senior Associate on a permanent contract, based in either the Birmingham or East Midlands office.

We are working increasingly on a Deals Team-wide basis, so the role would involve exposure to working on projects with other Lines of Service in the Deals Team, including Transaction Services, Forensics and Corporate Finance.

  • Preferred - ACA/ACCA qualified
  • Sound financial analytical skills, including use of Microsoft Excel
  • Strong commercial awareness and a genuine interest in how businesses work
  • Strong interpersonal skills and comfortable communicating with all levels

  • Proven project and time management skills
  • Good communication skills, both verbal and written.
  • Flexibility where required as to working location
  • Excellent verbal and written English
  • Report writing skills including use of Microsoft Powerpoint (Including Smart preferred but not essential)
Who we are looking for
An ambitious and enthusiastic member of the team, with the ability to communicate at any level or grade. We are looking for someone who is keen to learn, who can think on their feet, and apply their knowledge in a pressurised working environment.
