The question of 'Value' consistently underpins the decision-making process of Boards, management, investors and other stakeholders - the current business environment this has never been more true. Our specialist Valuations team provides value related advice, assisting clients in managing value throughout the business cycle in circumstances relating to M&A transactions, financial reporting, tax, litigation and management decision-making. We are Australia's leading corporate valuations team and have prepared more independent expert reports than any of our major competitors in the Australian market place.

We invest in our people, so you will have access to leading training and development opportunities, allowing you to develop both personally and technically.

What will your typical day look like?
The role will provide you the opportunity to build a technical skill-set while taking a leadership role in project management and executing a range of complex engagements such as high-profile transactions involving private companies, private equity backed companies, ASX-listed corporates, large scale or unique business/asset valuations, and complex valuations involving bespoke modelling and analytics.
More specifically, working in a high-calibre and collegial team, you will be involved in the following:

  • In-depth company, economic, industry, capital markets and competitor research, data analysis and benchmarking
  • Employment of various valuation methodologies such as discounted cash flow, earnings multiples, excess earnings, comparative sales and replacement cost methods, capital asset pricing model, etc
  • Bespoke financial modelling to facilitate the valuation, including scenario/sensitivity/statistical analysis
  • Review of valuation reports, exhibits, letters and other client deliverables
  • Participation in business development initiatives, both with the Partners in the team, and through developing your personal network
  • Leading and mentoring a small team, including contributing to the provision of formal and informal training
  • Managing client relationships and leading discussions during client meetings
  • Project managing engagements, including tracking delivery against engagement timelines and budgets
