  • Special situations and distressed lending
  • Workouts, restructurings, debtor-in-possession financings and exit financings

In order to be considered for this superb opportunity, you will have:

  • Strong academics and a high level of intellectual rigour
  • Training and between 3 and 6 years’ post-qualification experience, gained probably within the Finance practice at a City, International, Magic Circle or US firm
  • An understanding of Leveraged and Acquisition Finance transactions, including LBOs, public-to-privates, dividend recapitalisations and refinancings
  • A common sense, down-to-earth approach
  • Commerciality and the ability to work in a sometimes fast-paced, intellectually challenging environment
