Corporate Finance - Restructuring

Since joining the Corporate Finance and Restructuring team in 2020 I have worked on projects across a variety of industries including retail, hospitality, shipping and mining. The work is varied and extremely interesting – an initial focus on insolvency engagements enables graduates to develop their industry knowledge and better understand restructuring stakeholder dynamics, but they also have the opportunity to work on a variety of wider restructuring mandates as they progress.

More generally, FTI’s market leading restructuring practice and large breadth of projects means that there is opportunity to be involved in the work that interests you the most.

Graduates in the team study towards the ACCA qualification with the aim of becoming exam qualified within 2-3 years. This is a challenging, yet rewarding qualification which has enabled me to apply what I have learnt to my everyday project work.

The entrepreneurial and team-orientated culture at FTI is what makes it such a great place to begin a career as a graduate. Whilst graduates are given a lot of freedom and responsibility from early on, the team is also incredibly supportive. In particular I have found that the flat team structure has enabled me to work with individuals across all levels of seniority, which has been a great opportunity to learn first-hand from some of the best in the industry.
