Director, Debt Advisory

Alvarez & Marsal


Alvarez & Marsal (“A&M”) is a global consulting firm with over US$ 2 billion in revenues, over 5,000 staff and 60 offices around the globe.  A&M delivers a broad range of professional services including Financial & Operational Restructuring, Debt Advisory, Transaction Advisory, Performance Improvement, Corporate Transformation, Financial Institutions Advisory, Tax, Valuations, and Disputes & Investigation Services. 

Our pan European Debt Advisory team has two offices, London and Frankfurt, and we operate across a broad range of industries, advising both private, listed and private equity-backed businesses.  The team have a deep knowledge of a wide range of debt products including corporate lending, leveraged finance, debt capital markets, private placements, asset based facilities and structured finance.  In addition to engaging on “good book” mandates, the team has experience across the credit spectrum from the healthiest growing companies to those in stressed situations including refinancings, introducing alternative capital providers, negotiating covenant amendments & waivers, and broader stakeholder management.

Our European team is expanding and we are looking to add a talented, ambitious and experienced Director to our London office to focus on the European Corporate market.

Working as part of a highly skilled international team, the Director will assist listed businesses and private companies (i.e. non-sponsor backed businesses) to source, negotiate and amend debt finance across an increasingly diverse and complex range of structures and markets including banks, credit funds and other non-bank lending institutions.

Typical projects will include:

  • Reviewing refinancing options to support growth strategies
  • Advice on optimal capital structures
  • Negotiating new money fundraisings
  • Refinancing and restructuring existing debt facilities
  • Helping borrowers manage their lenders in stressed situations
  • Financial modelling, including analysing business forecasts, scenario analysis and covenant sensitivities
  • Leading the management of transaction processes, including the preparation of information packs, presentations and financial analysis 

A&M is an environment that presents a real opportunity for ambitious individuals as all employees are encouraged to develop their client networks and business development skills.  High performing colleagues who successfully develop business for the firm are substantially rewarded in terms of additional bonus and career advancement.

The successful appointee will have:

  • Experience within the European debt markets either at a leading debt advisory firm, in banking or on a DCM desk
  • The ability to demonstrate experience leading assignments across a range of situations and products
  • The ability and inclination to manage senior client level relationships both at the height of a financing exercise but also through the periods between transactions
  • Fluent business level English is essential.  Additional European language skills including German, French, Spanish or Italian are highly desirable

A&M’s entrepreneurial culture celebrates independent thinkers and doers who can positively impact our clients and shape our industry. The collaborative environment and engaging work—guided by A&M’s core values of Integrity, Quality, Objectivity, Fun, Personal Reward, and Inclusive Diversity—are the main reasons our people love working at A&M.

It is the A&M way.
