We’ll broaden your horizons

Our Advisory team provide a wide variety of services that deliver value-led advice and outcomes. They have an in-depth knowledge of business, industry sectors and markets and understand the constantly changing risks and opportunities at the heart of our clients’ affairs.

From technology to risk advisory, they’re experts in following through on top-level instructions and resolving the finer details – all in one straight-forward package.

  • Prepare statutory and technical compliance documents
  • Deal with correspondence effectively and efficiently
  • Use and support the team with file maintenance and the document management system
  • Liaise with other relevant professional advisers and other stakeholders
  • Undertake high level investigations
  • Attend meetings with a range of stakeholders
  • Review, compile and analyse company information

When you join us, we’ll make your growth our priority. If you can demonstrate the following skills, we can help you go far. We’re looking for someone with:

  • Graduate - studying towards a relevant professional qualification (ACCA / CII), with an appropriate amount of insolvency experience OR Non- Graduate - demonstrating relevant work experience
  • Ability to develop and maintain in-depth technical knowledge
  • Demonstrate an understanding of regulatory and statutory requirements
  • Excellent written and numerical skills
  • Gain a good grounding in matters covered in the CII syllabus and work towards a position of readiness and competency to study for this qualification
  • Knowledge and understanding of relevant computer packages specific to the business stream preferred.
  • Good organisational skills to manage your time and ensure no tasks are overlooked
  • Have a willingness to learn new things and thrive on new challenges

As well offering support with tuition and professional qualifications, we also provide the following benefits, as standard:

  • 25 days’ holiday;
  • access to a personal pension scheme, with matched employer contributions;
  • life assurance cover;
  • income protection insurance
