About FTI Consulting:

FTI Consulting is a global business advisory firm, dedicated to helping organisations navigate and manage a diverse range of complex issues and business challenges. Our expertise covers the spectrum of Corporate Finance & Restructuring, Economic Consulting, Forensic & Litigation Consulting, Strategic Communications and Technology. We are a company of more than 4,600 professionals with annual revenues in excess of $1.8 billion, with offices located in every major business centre in the world.

Our professionals are some of the most experienced leaders in their fields, and advise across a range of industries. Our clients engage us for high-stakes concerns or emerging opportunities that require specialised expertise, and over the past two decades we have been engaged to work behind the headlines on some of the biggest news stories to date.

FTI Consulting is a fast growing and vibrant place to work. Steered by our values of Integrity, Creativity, Achievement, Empathy and Respect, its meritocratic culture invites both collaboration and healthy debate. We are large enough to be trusted by our clients to solve their biggest issues and yet small enough to know our colleagues on a personal level enabling better team working and a supportive culture to develop your career goals and ambitions.

About the Opportunity:

As with other industry verticals within FTI, the Business Transformation Practice (BTP) complements the service offerings across the rest of Corporate Finance.

We serve corporate clients in all industries and/or private equity clients making investments in these areas. Our services include pre-deal operations due diligence, post-merger integration, restructuring and performance improvement including interim management. Our demanding customer base relies on small and senior teams. We assume active roles and responsibilities as required for the successful implementation of the change programme. Our employees deliver measurable results, not only reports. Joint project teams consisting of our clients and our consultants ensure integrated solutions, knowledge transfer and timely and sustainable implementation of all measures.
