About The Team

Our Business Recovery Services (BRS) practice is the largest restructuring practice in the UK and operates from 23 offices.

We are looking for highly driven and ambitious individuals to work in our Public Sector Operational Restructuring team, providing hands-on advisory support to our clients to deliver financial and operational performance turnaround. The service blends restructuring situational skills (hands-on, pragmatic, managing stakeholders) with functional expertise (business planning, cost reduction, cash and change management) and industry experience.

We are the UK market leaders in this area working across the public sector, with a particular focus with the NHS (hospitals, Clinical Commissioning Groups, and across the health systems).

This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly successful and growing team, with excellent career progression opportunities.

About the role

You will be working with high profile NHS and public sector clients in a fast paced and highly rewarding environment. You will have excellent analytical capabilities supported by strong interpersonal skills and tenacity to drive delivery of operational change and financial turnaround.

Your role will involve analysis and report writing, presentations to senior client staff, and working with client staff in hands-on roles to develop and deliver cost improvement projects.

You will work on a range of assignments including;

  • Financial baseline and forecast review

  • Programme management office establishment and operations

  • Development, planning and delivery of operational improvement projects

  • Cost control programme development and implementation

  • Strategic planning with business case and scenario modelling

  • As a manager in our team, you will be responsible for coaching and overseeing the work of junior staff and being the primary day to day contact with client teams. You will also report to more senior staff and take the lead on managing risk and compliance issues on client engagements as well as costing proposals and managing budget oversight.

    Our clients are based around the UK and you will need to be willing to travel and be flexible around your working location.

    Essential skills and experience

  • Experience of operating on cost reduction programmes in the NHS or public sector;

  • Strong financial analytical skills (financial and non-financial), including use of Microsoft Excel;

  • Report writing skills including use of Microsoft PowerPoint;

  • Excellent verbal and written English;

  • Previous experience in, or exposure to, complex stakeholder environments;

  • Strong commercial awareness and a willingness to participate in marketing and business development;

  • Strong interpersonal skills and comfortable communicating with all levels;

  • A commitment to continued personal development;

  • Proven project and time management skills;

  • Ability to work to tight deadlines in a pressurised working environment;

  • Flexibility to work on diverse projects.

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

    Please apply if you have a keen interest in the work we do.
