Restructuring advisory – get the career you want at RSM

Our restructuring advisory programme 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 does our restructuring advisory team do?

We work 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; or navigate an accelerated transaction.

What can you expect?

At RSM, you’ll be a key member of our team from day one. You’ll get involved in client work very quickly, initially working as part of a larger team before taking on individual responsibility for projects.

The depth of services and clients you’ll be exposed to will help you kick-start your career. You could be working with a wide variety of organisations, including large listed financial institutions, national retail chains, and high- profile charities, as well as some of our international clients that operate throughout the UK and beyond.

A career in restructuring advisory will give you access to top quality career development. Alongside hands-on experience, you’ll benefit from on-the-job training from more senior members of the team and gain access to our internal training courses that will help you develop in the role. With our support, you’ll become a true trusted adviser to your clients in the future.

When you join this team, you’ll work towards the ACA qualification with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW), or your Chartered Accountancy qualification with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS).

What we look for

We’re on the lookout for enthusiastic self-starters who are always up for a challenge. Restructuring is a technically demanding discipline, so we look for students who are quick to grasp new subjects. It’s important you also have confidence with numbers and great attention to detail.

You’ll often need to explain complex financial information, so you’ll need excellent written and verbal communication skills. What separates us from our competitors is the financial acumen we demonstrate and we expect that right from the start from our people.

If that sounds like you, we know you’ll enjoy being part of our team.

Entry requirements

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

You will need:

  • 112 UCAS (new tariff) across 3 A Levels or 104 (new tariff) across 4 Highers/Advanced Highers. 
  • A predicted/obtained honours degree.

UCAS changed their points system so under the old tariff it would be 280 or 260 points respectively.

Why RSM?

As one of the world’s largest networks of audit, tax and consulting firms, we’ll help you reach your full potential. You’ll work on an impressive client list – from multinational and growth-focused entrepreneurs to fashion icons. The variety of projects will challenge you every day, helping you expand your capabilities and grow professionally. And with access to a global team that spans more than 120 countries, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to broaden your horizons. Discover a culture that nurtures individuality and celebrates fresh thinking. It's your career. Own it at RSM.
