Job description


The Role



The National Markets Restructuring team are looking for a Manager to join their team, based in either Reading or Canary Wharf.


The Restructuring NM London & Reading team delivers a blend of stakeholder / lender side advisory work (including support with financial restructurings), company side advisory and formal insolvency. The team in London and Reading provide services to a full spectrum of businesses from small owner managed concerns through to large multinationals and also a wide range of work with public sector organisations, all typically experiencing some form of stress or distress.


The team is not aligned to specific sectors and specialisms, however there are individuals with significant experience in certain areas and situations and we would welcome this in applicants. Applicants however should expect to work across all sectors as situations and client demand.


We are currently recruiting for a role in the Kprogression team where we are seeking a candidate with insolvency skills, including detailed knowledge of statutory and technical aspects of corporate insolvencies. The role will predominantly be based in the home office (Reading or Canary Wharf), however some travel is expected, either to other KPMG offices or client sites.


The role will involve working across a range of corporate insolvency appointments and applicants should be ready to work in dynamic, flexible and fast moving environments


Roles and Responsibilities


To be an effective Manager within Restructuring’s Kprogression team you’ll undertake the following:


• Working in engagement teams of typically 3 to 6 people, supporting senior team members on a range of insolvency engagements
• Working with the engagement team to ensure all statutory matters are delivered in accordance with the Insolvency Rules and regulations and on time
• Proactively advise the engagement team, including engagement leaders, on technical matters arising on engagements
• Drive forward progression of cases to a timely conclusion, including inputting into case strategy and demonstrating a commercial awareness
• Manage engagements and projects to scope, time, quality and budget complying with KPMG engagement management practices
• Build strong, trusted adviser relationships with senior management and mid-level executives and other key stakeholders in engagements (including lawyers and contacts at banks and other lenders)
• On certain relevant assignments, overseeing work as the main point of contact with the client, reporting back to engagement leaders and other senior staff
• Potential involvement in changes to how we deliver our work or new product development
• Involvement in business development activities
• Development of junior staff on assignments
• Potential work on non-insolvency appointments






The Person



Skills, Qualifications and Experience


• Drive and enthusiasm
• Demonstrable experience in managing own workstreams and insolvency assignments.
• Strong commercial and business acumen
• Ability to work innovatively and ‘self start’ and delegate to teams of colleagues
• Ability to coach colleagues and clearly explain technical aspects of insolvencies to others
• Ideally relevant insolvency qualifications
• Detailed corporate insolvency experience, specifically including statutory and technical aspects of engagements
• Ideally some experience working on all aspects of an insolvency in addition to statutory and technical matters
• Desire to build wide insolvency skillsets and develop knowledge of all Restructuring offerings
• Ability to communicate well with internal and external contacts and stakeholders at all levels. This is also often in challenging circumstances given the financial positions of the organisations we typically work with
• Willingness to embrace work across all sectors and potentially undertake some travel
• A positive team influence and achievements beyond the realms of engagement work.
