KPMG Overview



KPMG is part of a global network of firms that offers Audit, Tax & Pensions, Consulting, Deal Advisory and Technology services. Through the talent of over 16,000 colleagues, we bring our creativity and insight to our clients’ most critical challenges. With offices across the UK, we work with everyone from small start-ups and individuals to major multinationals, in virtually every industry imaginable. Our work is often complex, yet our vision is simple: to be the clear choice for our clients, for our people and for the communities we work in.



The Team



KPMG's Infrastructure and Government (I&G) focussed Strategy Team is looking to hire the right candidates to join their London- based team. The team needs professional, talented individuals who have a passion for identifying, creating and delivering innovative solutions for public and private sector clients.



The role of KPMG’s I&G Strategic Advisory Services (SAS) team is to work with Government and Industry on the biggest, most complex, and pressing strategic, policy and programme implementation issues. As part of a fast paced and dynamic group, practitioners will have the opportunity to offer and deliver advice on strategic options, business cases and operating models to public sector, agency and corporate clients. We sit in Deal Advisory (DA) but most work is undertaken in multidisciplinary teams, and there will be opportunities to work across both public and private sectors in areas such as justice, home affairs, trade, business support, transport innovation and technologies, roads, rail, water and nuclear.



We advise clients across the public sector and infrastructure and transport sectors, to address their most high profile and complex strategic challenges which are novel, contentious and repercussive. Typically the advice we provide them with can be categorised in the following way:
• Market assessment (e.g. market, policy, regulatory or technology trends, market and supply chain capability and capacity)
• Business Strategy (e.g. vision, objectives, strategic options, future proofing, financial sustainability)
• Operating Strategy (e.g. operating model design, governance and structures, incentives)
• Market Making (e.g. complex business cases, market engagement, procurement strategy)
It is an exciting time to join this team as we are growing rapidly due to our unique propositions and strength of client relationships. We are working on some fascinating public issues – ranging, for example, from the rise of autonomous vehicles, to growing regional trade or the creation of new markets for provision of public services. The team blends this with support to the largest infrastructure operators and infrastructure programmes in the UK. As a team, we are a group of individuals who are passionate about having fun both inside and outside of work.

Location: London

Capability: Deal Advisory

Service line: Restructuring

Experience level: Associate/Assistant Manager

Employment type: Full Time



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.
• Build strong, trusted adviser relationships with senior management and mid-level executives and other key stakeholders in engagements, and, where appropriate, be the day-to-day contact for smaller client projects.
• Project management role, taking ownership of the key aspects of cases or managing discreet aspects of larger assignments.
• Undertaking of detailed analysis to present robust advice to clients.
• Appraise challenging & fast developing situations and look to develop innovative solutions and assess options for businesses and their stakeholders.
• Managing sector specific research alongside client work when possible, in order to form views of market trends and assist in generating / identify sales opportunities.
• Supporting preparation of pitch packs with senior team members and co-ordinating cross firm input.

Key Skills and Competencies Required

• Qualified accountant (ACA or equivalent).
• Strong analysis and report writing skills
• Strong commercial and business acumen.
• Experience in managing key deliverables for internal or external stakeholders. Restructuring experience desirable but not essential.
• 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.
