Permanent & Full-time PwC_183728WD-int

About the team

Our Business Restructuring Services (BRS) practice is currently the largest restructuring practice in the UK operating from 23 offices.

Within BRS, our Operational Restructuring practitioners work alongside Senior Executives to drive operational change at pace whether it be to reduce cost as a means of protecting margins, responding to a crisis, to generate cash or to realise the value of a deal or transaction.

We develop and implement realistic and pragmatic plans by applying restructuring and stakeholder management skills, functional knowledge, and proprietary assets and tools to support Executives in making difficult decisions and driving through change in a short timeframe.

About the role

Corporates are under significant pressure to make changes to their businesses and operating models as a result of the macro-economic and geopolitical landscape, increasing competition and ongoing revenue pressures.

We are expanding our team to support the increasing demand from our clients across a broad range of sectors to transform their operations. As well as working with a wide range of clients, you will also work with leading practitioners across the Deals, Strategy & and Consulting practice within the Firm.

As a Manager in the team, you will be working with clients on a breadth of operational restructuring assignments, including cost reduction, cash management and working capital management, focused on identifying and implementing sustainable performance improvements.

Your responsibilities will include:
  • Bringing sector expertise and a demonstrable understanding of the challenges facing our clients to offer insights and value to transformation programmes
  • Assimilating complex information to formulate structured, pragmatic and meaningful client recommendations.
  • Undertaking market and client analysis to understand the clients' commercial challenge and translating this into operational implications such as cost reduction, working capital improvements.
  • Performing cashflow sensitivity analysis, financial baselining and forecast reviews
  • Preparing presentations and/or reports to key stakeholders (e.g. Board, senior management).
  • Managing stakeholders and inspiring change.
  • Developing, managing and sustaining strong client relationships with clients and within the Firm.
  • Drawing in expertise from different parts of the Firm to bring a compelling value proposition to clients.
  • Taking responsibility for leading junior members of the team where required including coaching and upskilling of junior team members.
  • Actively managing project economics and overall programme governance.

You will also be expected to actively contribute to the development of our team by:
  • Supporting with marketing and business development initiatives (both internally and externally) to continuously develop our position in the market.
  • Managing a diverse and inclusive team.
  • Coaching and acting as a role model for the junior members of the team.

The role will be based in either London or one of the regional hubs (Watford, leeds, Manchester, Bristol, Reading or Birmingham) but requires flexibility to travel throughout the UK, with the potential to travel overseas, depending on client requirements

Essential Skills and Experience

We are looking for candidates with the experience of supporting clients throughout the operational transformation lifecycle from strategic opportunity assessment and planning through to supporting the delivery of specific initiatives.

Given the multi-disciplinary nature of the work, these candidates will have experience either in industry or advisory or ideally both and have the following capabilities:
  • Both financial and operational quantitative analytics.
  • Experience of working capital, supply chain optimisation, procurement, debt management.
  • Experience of working on complex operational change.
  • Experience of managing stakeholders.
  • Ability to manage ambiguity or conflicting priorities.
  • High impact communication in the written and verbal form with extensive experience of development of power point presentations to synthesise analysis and communicate key conclusions.
  • Experience of leading and developing team around you.
  • Ability to leverage technology enabled and digital tools to achieve efficient delivery for our clients.

You'll be joining a team who welcome your outlook and knowledge, whilst providing you the opportunity to develop your skill set further within one of the world's leading professional organisations

Whilst under current COVID-19 restrictions, the way in which we are working with clients has changed. We are primarily working remotely (with a small number of our team working from client sites) and as a team are working in line with the firm's and government's policies. As changes are made to the firm and national policies, it is anticipated that our working practices will continue to evolve and return to close working with our clients.

You will, therefore, need to be willing to travel and be flexible around your working location. This could require working away from your base office location on a regular basis and regular overnight stays may be required. Where possible, we will take your preferences into account and strike a balance between meeting your career development/personal needs and those of the business and our clients.
