Restructuring Advisory Assistant - School Leaver Apprenticeship Programme - 16665

29 November 2018






RSM is a leading global provider of audit, tax and consulting services to middle market leaders. As an integrated team, we share skills, insight and resources, as well as a client-centric, collaborative approach that's based on a deep understanding of our clients' businesses. 

Work Environment: 

Our Restructuring Advisory apprenticeship will give you all the skills and support you need to unlock a future that's packed with opportunities and new experiences. You'll enjoy a fast-tracked business career that recognises your potential and rewards your ambition.

When you join our team, you'll enjoy a powerful combination of on-the-job learning and structured training - not to mention an impressive client list to work with. You'll discover a culture that nurtures individuality and an environment where everyone is supported to reach their potential. With us, you'll always be moving forward.

What might a day in this job look like?

The Restructuring Advisory team works with organisations and their advisers, lenders, trustees and creditors to prevent, manage and address issues related to financial difficulty. This could include advice on how to: 

  • develop an effective turnaround strategy manage risk by simplifying corporate structure
  • review defined benefit pension covenant strength
  • monitor emerging financial risks
  • preserve value on distressed real estate projects
  • realise value and optimise the outcome of a formal insolvency
  • secure an appropriate funding solution
  • identify and recover assets after contentious insolvency
  • navigate an accelerated transaction.

What will I learn?

You'll get involved in client work very quickly, and get the chance to learn about different types of businesses from varying industry sectors. The depth of services and clients you'll be exposed to early in your career will help you jump-start your accountancy career.

Initially, you'll be working as part of a larger team. Once you've completed your initial professional qualifications, the complexity of your workload will increase, and you'll have the opportunity to take on more individual responsibilities and get involved in more challenging issues. With us, you'll have the space to grow and be challenged. With our support, you'll become a true trusted adviser to your clients.

When you join this team, you'll work towards your AAT professional qualifications.

What Qualifications / Qualities are required?

You will need 112 UCAS points (new tariff) across 3 A Levels or 104 (new tariff) across 4 Highers/Advanced Highers.  UCAS changed their points system so under the old tariff it would be 280 or 260 points respectively.

At RSM, we don't just look for good exam results. We think passion, personality and originality are just as important.

Although this role is advertised for the August 2019 intake, it's a possibility that your start date could be prior to this. We can discuss this at interview if of interest.

Closing Date:

Sunday 31 March.
