Joining KPMG means joining a talented team of exceptional colleagues who bring innovative thoughts and a natural curiosity to the work they do each day. No one type of person succeeds at KPMG; a diverse business requires diverse personalities, characters and perspectives. There really is a place for you here.

The Team

KPMG’s Special Situations Group delivers a broad spectrum of restructuring work including lender and company side advisory through a period of distress and/or restructuring, as well as implementation support covering turnaround, transformation and liquidity (both working capital improvement and cash preservation for stressed and distressed situations).


We are a team of approximately 90 people, led by seven partners and 16 directors. We are looking to grow the team to enhance our delivery capability to support our next phase of growth.


Whilst the team is not aligned to specific sectors there are individuals with significant experience in certain sectors and specific functional and/or sector focus would be considered a benefit. Applicants however will be expected to work across all sectors (both in the private and public sector) and situations depending on client demand.


Where possible, assignments will be resourced to suit individuals’ base locations, but the nature and unpredictability of our work will mean that some travel (and possible international working) will be required.

The Role

We are looking to recruit Assistant Managers to join the team based in London, although applicants will be required to work in other UK, European or international based locations depending on client demand. The role will involve working across a number of product types highlighted above and applicants should be ready to work in dynamic, flexible and fast moving environments.

Key Responsibilities

• Working in engagement teams of typically 3 to 6 people, supporting senior team members on a range of product types.

Key Skills and Competencies Required

• Qualified accountant (ACA or equivalent).

• Strong commercial and business acumen.

• Ability to work innovatively and ‘self-start’.
• Desire to build wide advisory skillsets and develop knowledge of all Restructuring offerings.
• Ability to communicate well across a range of operational and financial staff at all levels. This is also often in challenging circumstances given the financial positions of the organisations we typically work with.
• Financial modelling experience in restructuring scenarios or the ability to demonstrate strong excel skills.
• Drive, enthusiasm and a “can do” attitude
• Creative with a willingness to try new and different approaches – our clients often have multiple issues which may not be what we are initially expecting.
• A positive team influence and achievements beyond the realms of project work.
