- Market analysis;
- Review and distillation of data: Company Watch reports, Annual Accounts, Publically available information, Industry Thought Leadership, etc;
- Make recommendations of what areas of the market we should consider focusing our sales efforts on;
- Understand our client issues and consider how we might address those issues.

The Individual:

- You have an interest in commercial and financial matters are able to demonstrate practical common sense;
- You will have good time management and organisational skills together with the ability to prioritise tasks to ensure that deadlines are met;
- You are conscientious and are able to produce high quality, detailed and accurate work;
- You will have good people and communication skills;
- You will demonstrate proactivity and be able to “self start”, either individually or as part of a team;
- You will delegate tasks to less experienced team members and have the ability to provide on the job coaching to other members of the department or engagement team;

Technical skills as follows:

- Outlook (basic level); a good knowledge of Excel and Word;
- Strong academic background (ACA, ACCA, CIMA) is desirable;
- A high standard of reporting writing would be preferable;
- An understanding of the Restructuring market is desirable but not essential.
