In Restructuring we support companies to address the complex challenges that cause them to underperform or threaten their survival. Restructuring is engaged by a wide range of stakeholders to companies, or the businesses themselves, to provide them with advice wherever an element of stress or distress is evident in a company’s operations.

You could find yourself helping our clients by acting as advisors to businesses or their key stakeholders, providing a range of operational, strategic and financial assistance; or restructuring financially troubled businesses, often performing reviews focused around the structure of existing debt and based on current and forecast trading performance – this could be on behalf of financial institutions, in addition to working directly with corporates. You could be supporting in providing turnaround services to underperforming businesses, including reviews of cash and working capital as well as more operational restructuring. Or even acting in a formal insolvency capacity as an administrator, liquidator, receiver or trustee. In these processes, you’d be part of a team wholly responsible for day-to-day management of the insolvent’s affairs and have responsibility for maximising the outcome from the process for the benefit of creditors.

Whatever the project, you can expect to work with the brightest minds and be part of a collaborative team where fresh perspectives are valued, and questions are welcomed. We'll make sure you have the responsibility you need to grow quickly along with the training you need to feel confident from the start.

Our industry-leading Restructuring business has an established track record of advising on some of the highest profile and most complex projects across the UK. However, in recent years we have seen the dynamics of the UK Insolvency and Restructuring market change. As a result, we have concluded that now is the right time to explore a potential sale of our UK Restructuring practice.

The exploration of a potential sale will affect candidates applying to this programme, therefore we will be unable to consider offers of employment to any candidates who successfully complete the recruitment process until the potential sale exploration has concluded. If a potential sale is agreed, then we will ask for your consent to share your details with the potential New Company for consideration of employment, however if a sale is not agreed then you will be considered for an offer to join KPMG.

When I was applying for graduate jobs, I wanted clear career progression, a range of opportunities and prestige - KPMG stood out. At careers fairs they were always friendly. The culture seemed relaxed. Plus, the application system was really quick and straightforward.

I joined as a Graduate Analyst and, honestly, there is no ‘ordinary’ day for me. Not knowing exactly what I’ll be doing every day means I come in every day feeling really motivated.

A couple of months ago I was given the opportunity to work on a project with a Partner. It felt like a lot of pressure at first, but it went really smoothly and there was a lot of support. I never imagined I’d be given that level of responsibility so early. But senior people aren’t intimidating here. Everybody feels like they’re on the same side.
