Summary of Role Purpose


KPMG’s Restructuring Employer Covenant Review Team are looking for a Manager to join our expanding National team, with this role based in London.

The Restructuring Employer Covenant team is currently made up of approximately 15 people, led by a partner and three directors. The team is targeting significant growth over the next few years.

Work in this specific role centres on assessing the financial strength of the companies that are responsible for funding defined benefit pension schemes, and assessing how much these companies can afford to pay to their schemes to meet the funding shortfall.

Our work is hands on – as well as producing concise reports, we are in the boardroom providing direct strategic and negotiation support, and then implementing our recommendations.

We work for both trustees and corporates, including some of the largest and most complex businesses in the UK. Our work falls into three areas:

1) Assessing the financial strength of the business supporting the scheme for the trustees or helping the corporate present their financial strength to their scheme trustees/advisors;

2) Assessing the impact of corporate activity on the level of financial support offered to the scheme – e.g. understanding the impact of M&A activity, business reorganisations, refinancings, etc. Again, we work for both corporates and trustees, often helping to design and implement structures and solutions; and

3) Dealing with situations where the size of the scheme threatens the ability of the sponsoring company/group to be able to continue to trade. This requires innovative solutions, robust financial analysis and excellent negotiation skills.
We work closely with other parts of KPMG including Pensions Advisory, Transaction Services, Corporate Finance and various sector teams. In many situations, a multi-functional team is deployed.

The role requires strong accounting analysis, report writing skills and a commercial mind-set.

Applicants should be ready to work in a dynamic, flexible and fast paced environment. We work with a wide variety of clients, from small privately owned enterprises through to FTSE 100 and high profile businesses. Applicants should expect to work across all sectors.
