Restructuring advisory – Get the career you want at RSM

Our restructuring advisory apprenticeship 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?

With us, you’ll get involved in client work very quickly, and get the chance to learn about different types of businesses from varying industry sectors. The depth of services and clients you’ll be exposed to early in your career will help you jump-start your accountancy career. Initially, you’ll be working as part of a larger team. Once you’ve completed your initial professional qualifications, the complexity of your workload will increase, and you’ll have the opportunity to take on more individual responsibilities and get involved in more challenging issues. With us, you’ll have the space to grow and be challenged. With our support, you’ll become a true trusted adviser to your clients. When you join this team, you’ll work towards your CPI and then move towards the AAT professional qualification.

What we look for

We’re on the lookout for enthusiastic self-starters who are always up for a challenge. We look for school leaver apprentices who are quick to grasp new subjects, 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.

Please note for those who perform well throughout our assessment process, should your first geographic preference be unavailable, you could potentially be offered a role in another location or facility. This would be discussed with you in this instance.

RSM will only take one application into consideration per intake. We do not accept multiple applications to different vacancies.

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 or an equivalent level of study (excluding AS levels and general studies).

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

About RSM

RSM is the size and shape it is today because we haven’t been afraid to develop and evolve. Reflecting the world we live in, and the society we’re part of helps us to be a better place to work. The experiences, insights and goals that make you one-of-a-kind are also what make you invaluable to us. RSM thrives because of the people who work with us, and there are no limits to what we will achieve together. That is the power of being understood.
