Why choose a corporate restructuring graduate programme?

Corporate restructuring offers a fast-paced and varied career. Our team has considerable experience and a reputation for dealing expertly with a wide variety of corporate restructuring issues.

Our approach is to help and advise businesses and their stakeholders through restructuring, working with them to identify and implement appropriate solutions calling on Mercer & Hole’s corporate finance and tax specialists as required.

Take a look here at former partner-turned consultant Chris Laughton’s fantastic achievement of the Sabin Award for his high standard of professional support and expertise in his delivery of restructuring and insolvency services.

Our graduate scheme in corporate restructuring also provides a stable and lucrative career path with fast progression and rewarding work.

We pride ourselves on learning and development for our trainees and have lots of structures in place to support you on your journey with us. These include trainee away days, a dedicated training manager, buddy and study leave, and much more!

Training and development doesn’t stop when you qualify – we are committed to continually developing our staff regardless of whether they’re a trainee or a director using our ‘People Passport’ so you are guaranteed a great investment in your future!

What will I be doing in the corporate restructuring graduate programme?

Our corporate restructuring graduate scheme is designed to support your learning and development. You will work as part of the corporate restructuring team while studying for the ACCA qualification with the opportunity to take further qualifications after qualifying. The variety of clients we work with provides you with a well-rounded experience, and the structure of our teams allows you the opportunity to gain knowledge from and exposure to senior managers and partners throughout your training and beyond.

Our graduate scheme in corporate restructuring focuses on helping financially distressed businesses, whether this be by winding down a company in a way to generate the best possible return for shareholders or creditors than would have otherwise been possible, or advising directors on how best to avoid having to enter a winding up process altogether.

As a graduate in the corporate restructuring team, you will be involved in a variety of tasks including; assisting in the preparation of insolvency documentation, investigating company accounts to identify and evidence potential legal claims, and conducting financial analysis that is included in advisory reports.

If you think this is something you’d be interested in, then do apply!
