Job DescriptionOur Infrastructure Advisory Group is widely recognised as one of the world’s leading independent financial, commercial and strategic advisors in infrastructure. We have won many awards for Financial Advisor of the Year at major industry events in recent years. In the UK, our multidisciplinary team is organised as a single national team. It comprises over 150 professionals, with a presence in London, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Leeds and Manchester. We provide in-depth advice on the strategic, financial and commercial issues driving the largest UK infrastructure projects across power and utilities, transport, and social infrastructure.

In Social Infrastructure, we are a market-leading advisor on the delivery of major capital projects, ranging from new facilities for the provision of healthcare and education to wider development and regeneration sponsored by local government. Our role includes advising both the public and private sectors on the commercial structuring, funding, financing and business case for infrastructure development. Current and recent projects include advising on a new university research and enterprise campus, the redevelopment of a major hospital and the financing strategy for a new football stadium. Projects are diverse but hold a common thread in private capital or expertise being used to finance large-scale infrastructure development.

- Supporting the delivery of multiple engagements in Social Infrastructure.

- Supporting effective project planning, delivery and closure.
- Supporting proposals for new business and other business development initiatives.
- Developing market intelligence and sector knowledge.
- Building and maintaining relationships with clients.
- Other duties commensurate with the role.

The ideal candidate would possess:

- Previous experience of infrastructure projects within the public arena, either as a bidder, investor, public procurer or lender.
- A keen interest in the UK social infrastructure market, including healthcare, education, housing, regeneration, leisure, justice and defence.
- Knowledge of financing structures and related commercial considerations.
- Commercial focus.
- Strong financial modelling skills and analytical capability.
- Strong writing skills for client reports and business proposals.
- A willingness to think independently and contribute to solving problems.
- A willingness to engage with clients and interact with wider transaction stakeholders.
- A highly motivated and proactive approach to take advantage of the opportunities this position offers.
