Senior – Restructuring Services

Reference ID: WIN00089

Share job:

EY's people in more than 150 countries are committed to operating with integrity, quality and professionalism in the provision of audit, tax and transaction advisory services. We strive to help all of our people achieve their professional and personal goals through an inclusive environment that values everyone's contributions, appreciates diversity of thought, fosters growth, and provides continuous opportunities for development. Recognized as one of Canada's top employers, EY continually strives to be a great place to work.

EY's Restructuring practice is currently looking for a Senior to join our team.


As an integral member of our corporate restructuring practice, you will assist in the planning and execution of engagements including managing specific elements of larger projects and providing overall management for smaller engagements. This will involve:
    • Analyzing a company's current financial situation and recommending strategic alternatives
    • Performing viability assessments of companies and recommend solutions
    • Assisting in the development of business plans to support restructuring initiatives
    • Providing advice to creditors in the enforcement of their rights
    • Acting as monitor in the context of CCAA filings, or as receiver and manager or trustee in bankruptcy as circumstances dictate.
    • Interacting with client staff, bankers and legal counsel to obtain information, report findings and provide instructions
    • Dealing with creditors and other stakeholders
    • Anticipating and responding to technical and business issues
    • Supervising and conducting company research and business analyses
    • Developing and/or reviewing detailed financial models
    • Preparing high-quality memoranda, letters, reports and other correspondence for submission to the client or the court.

The right person will embrace the uncertainty and often fluid nature of the work and will have a "roll up the sleeves" attitude and a high level of creative energy and enthusiasm. Larger engagements may extend over many months.

Skills and experience:

We are interested in candidates who fulfill the following criteria:
    • A CPA, CA, designation with two to four years of experience in a professional services firm or other business environment
    • Willing to enrol in the CIRP Qualification Program
    • Willing to sit for the oral board examination to qualify as a Licenced Insolvency Trustee
    • Skills in problem solving, situational analysis, creativity, negotiation and decision making
    • High level of technical competence in conducting financial analysis
    • Ability to prepare high-quality written communication
    • Ability to present in a clear, concise and confident manner to clients and other audiences
    • Advanced financial modelling knowledge and ability to prepare short-term cash flow projections
    • Comprehensive understanding of financial statement analysis
    • Ability to work either autonomously or with a team on a number of simultaneous projects
    • Effective time management skills and ability to work under tight deadlines
    • Strong interest in building a business network and participating in business development activities both alone and with other team members

From time to time, you may be called upon to work in our other Transaction Advisory Services sub-service lines, depending on their needs. This position requires travel, as necessary.

EY is committed to diversity, accessibility and equity. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply
