What you’ll create and do

In Canada, the Business Recovery Services practice goes to market as Corporate Advisory and Restructuring (CAR).

As a Senior Associate, you’ll work as part of a team of problem solvers with extensive financial advisory, turnaround consulting and industry experience, helping our clients solve their complex business issues from strategy to execution. We work with stakeholders of companies facing financial and liquidity challenges, helping to evaluate and support delivery of turnaround and restructuring plans that preserve value and promote future growth. This includes working with our Value Creation colleagues on operations improvement and cash optimization opportunities, as well as core mandates for financial restructuring and use of strategic mechanisms in the CAR practice.

  • Financial model development and review, leveraging PwC’s network of data transformation experts;

  • Other statutory appointments including bankruptcy matters, wind-ups, liquidations and interim receiverships.

You’ll be working collaboratively with teams across Deals and other PwC lines of service in connection with client mandates and business development opportunities.

Although your primary focus area will be the CAR practice, there is an expectation that the successful candidate will work across multiple competency areas within the Deals practice. This could include assisting the Value Creation, Corporate Finance, Valuations or Transaction Due Diligence teams.
