The Role

This is a rare opportunity to join Teneo's well established Financial Advisory team in Cardiff. You will work alongside some of the most experienced practitioners in the field advising the management teams, lenders and shareholders of corporates that are underperforming and/or facing any financial stress.

The Cardiff team delivers complex, high-profile advisory and formal insolvency appointments, both locally and nationally and across a range of sectors. As a Senior Consultant, you will be exposed to a variety of projects in areas such as debt advisory, accelerated M&A, insolvency, performance improvement and financial forecasting.

The position encourages growth and career development, with a clear path of progression. You will develop a broad skill set across financial modelling, report writing, and stakeholder management, as well as being involved with business development activities that will build your network.

In addition, there will be opportunities to work at client sites, other Teneo offices and, as your career progresses, more opportunity for agile working.

The Financial Advisory Team at Teneo

The Cardiff team sits within Teneo's global Financial Advisory business, which was established on acquisition of Deloitte's Restructuring team in June 2021. The Financial Advisory business continues to grow across multiple disciplines and international locations.

The Financial Advisory business advises corporates through periods of uncertainty and stress to improve profitability, create liquidity, exit underperforming businesses, assess options, address balance sheet challenges, and communicate appropriately with all stakeholders. No two situations are the same, and our advice and approach is tailored to each set of circumstances and client.

Our expert team also brings market-leading experience in establishing and delivering contingency plans and insolvencies across multiple jurisdictions, providing credible fallback plans to protect value or helping to shape and affect a restructuring.
