About Us

Founded in August 2021, Cathro & Partners provides restructuring, turnaround, insolvency, and government advisory services.

Since our launch, we’ve expanded rapidly from one Principal and three staff in Sydney, to five Principals and a growing team of staff across our Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Canberra offices.

We also have a presence in Perth via an alliance agreement with Auxilium Partners, and an international presence via our alliance agreement with Quantuma Advisory Limited.

Why work with us

We are committed to the growth and development of our staff and providing opportunities, learning and tools to reach your full potential. We have a well-developed learning, development and performance framework which provides clarity on the expectations of staff at all levels and helps guide you in your career from Graduate to Principal.

We have a strong reputation and a national presence, as well as experience in a diverse portfolio of insolvency and restructuring matters.

This enables us to provide a broad variety of projects, within a collegiate work model, where you’ll often collaborate directly with Principals on high-profile cases.

The health and well-being of our staff is of paramount importance to us.

We provide flexible working arrangements, enabling you to work from home when required. We also  conduct quarterly employee engagement and well-being check-ins via an anonymous pulse  survey, so we can see how you’re going and what additional support you need.

This service includes an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) – a confidential counselling service for employees, which is provided by external service providers. 

As a national firm we understand the importance of building a strong culture and maintaining connectivity across our offices. We build and support this through quarterly all-staff, in-person events which combine a professional and social component for connectivity, team building and fun.

Thanks to the growth of our firm, we offer opportunities for rapid advancement.

We conduct bi-annual performance reviews in which team players and their managers are provided an opportunity to reflect on their performance and identify future development opportunities.

Merit-based promotions are also considered as part of our performance review discussions to ensure staff are given opportunities for continual development, leading to promotion, when ready.

We actively encourage our employees to complete further education courses and pursue their career objectives. This includes a comprehensive training schedule with industry professionals.

Our commitment to your continued learning extends to study leave and financial support for CA, CPA, and ARITA courses, as well as assistance with professional membership fees .

We provide market-competitive salaries, with annual salary benchmarking, along with bonus and incentive schemes. We also provide generous referral rewards for connecting your network to employment opportunities at Cathro & Partners.

Helping clients navigate challenges and identify opportunities.

Our purpose is to work with our clients and their referrers to assist organisations and individuals to work through their challenges and arrive at successful insolvency and restructuring outcomes.
