Job Description

Head of Department (Experienced SM or Director)


This is a rare and exciting role for a banking or finance professional to work outside of the practice arena. The role is suited to someone looking to make the move out of the banking or restructuring industry.  Due to the nature of this role there is no need for external business development or a fee following; making this attractive for high calibre candidates who might be blocked by the inevitable glass ceilings in Banks or large consulting firms.

As Head of department you will lead the team’s relationships with approximately 30 corporate providers on complex financial situations, reviewing sustainability and escalating procedures where necessary. You will be an experienced team leader with over 12 years’ experience in banking or restructuring with recent experience of chairing risk assessment meetings, together with evaluating and executing appropriate actions.

Individuals with complex workout and restructuring skills are preferred as well as experience of stakeholder management and recent exposure to Board level executives. Interpreting correlations between quality and finance indicators and their impact on business failure risk will play a significant part in the role. An understanding of UK insolvency procedures and the healthcare sector are highly attractive skills.

Suitable candidates will be able to demonstrate a proven track record in leadership and strategic planning for a medium sized team. Due to the nature of this role the successful candidate will need to demonstrate credibility and professionalism as this role is a prominent position and will attract public interest.

This role will offer the successful candidate an opportunity to lead and manage a team in a highly socially rewarding sector. There is excellent job security coupled with the ability to work and network with some very senior and prominent public-sector heads with a business that prides itself on staff wellbeing, offering an unrivalled work-life balance for this level and sector.
