Have you managed situations of (upcoming) financial distress and accelerated operational improvements in corporate firms, PE portfolio companies or large private businesses?

Have you successfully planned and executed turnaround strategies, strategic portfolio choices, rapid cost reduction opportunities, working capital improvements and scenario analysis?

If so, you have the opportunity to lead a Distressed Operational Restructuring (‘DOR’) team as part of the Business Restructuring Services team in one of the 'Big Five' consultancy firms.

What you will be doing:

In the aforementioned situations, value is very often created through accelerated M&A, accelerated commercial improvements, rapid cost reduction and working capital optimization.

Together with your team, you will drive change and realise the projected value in the clearly defined turnaround plan.

Stakeholders relationships are complex but fundamental during the transformation phases. You will be rebuilding credibility and reassuring stakeholders about the decisions to be made in the company. You will be the person making the difference in these type of situations.
