Insolvency appointments are required in a wide range of scenarios and can be used to deliver a restructuring solution, as well as in scenarios where a restructuring cannot be achieved to seek to sell or close the business.

What will you do?

Day to day responsibilities will vary depending on projects but are likely to include:


  • Accounting and cashiering responsibilities for insolvency cases

  • Dealing with various aspects of insolvency case management and compliance

  • Setting up and maintaining files, records, and project management controls

  • Updating data analysis and spreadsheets

  • Assisting in preparation of reports for creditors and other key stakeholders

  • Communicating with a range of stakeholders and dealing with their queries e.g. employees, creditors, management, landlords
  • Assisting in the ongoing operations of trading businesses in administration

  • Assisting more senior staff as required e.g. realisation of assets, sale of business

  • Preparing dividends to be paid to creditors.

As you progress, your accounting and insolvency experience and knowledge will develop allowing you to take on more responsibility on projects.


  • Researching company or sector specific opportunities

  • Assisting with preparation of pitches for new projects

  • Preparing ad hoc market analysis

  • Data manipulation / analysis on restructuring projects

What are we looking for?

If you have, or are expecting a first or upper second class degree and are looking for a career in a firm that will give you the opportunities to succeed, then we encourage you to apply.
Any degree discipline will be considered however candidates should be able to demonstrate their ability to think logically and work with numbers. We are particularly interested in candidates with quantitative or semi-quantitative backgrounds, for example degrees in mathematics, statistics, engineering, physics, chemistry, and management are typical.  However, if you have demonstrated strong numerical skills at A Level a numerical degree is not essential.
Strong written and verbal communication skills are also essential as the role will involve communications with a varied group of stakeholders – for example management, lenders, employees and suppliers.  The role also requires good organisation, self-management, proactivity, and teamwork skills.
We look for highly analytical graduates who are able to think critically and think on their feet. Under the ACCA, you will work towards becoming a Chartered Accountant. We are committed to the development of our people and our in-house and on the job training will complement your studies. Career progression is along a clearly defined route, with regular appraisals and professional guidance.
