Are you passionate about understanding businesses, industries and capital markets and how value is created and communicated? Are you ready to take on a leadership role in a growing team?

The question of 'Value' consistently underpins the decision-making process of Boards, management, investors and other stakeholders. 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. Since January 2009, we have prepared more independent expert reports than any of our major competitors in the Australian market place, making us Australia's leading corporate valuations teams.

We are currently looking to hire an Associate Director or a Director (we have flexibility on level) in our Perth team.

Example of our Work

We assisted the shareholders of an ASX listed mining company understand a proposal received from another company to buy their shares. This included advice on the fair value of their shares, and the shares in the combined entity. This analysis was supplemented with a detailed qualitative and quantitative assessment of the risk factors shareholders needed to consider in evaluating the proposal

About the Opportunity

The role will provide you the opportunity to build a technical skill-set whilst taking a leadership role in project management and executing a range of complex engagements such as high-profile transactions involving ASX-listed corporates, large scale or unique business/asset valuations, and complex valuations involving bespoke modelling and analytics.

More specifically, working in a supportive 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 Partner in the team, and through your personal networks
  • Lead and mentor a small team, including providing formal and informal training
  • Manage client relationships and lead discussions during client meetings
  • Project manage engagements, including tracking delivery against engagement timelines and budgets

About your Experience

Our preferred candidate is a natural collaborator who is able to think unconventionally, apply commercial thinking and challenge the status quo in designing solutions to real and technical problems. We seek (and reward) talent with a strong problem solving attitude founded on the use of innovative solutions. The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate:
  • 7+ years of business and intangible asset valuation experience
  • Experience with project management including overseeing a team to deliver in line with agreed timelines and budgets
  • Strong experience in applying generally accepted valuation approaches: cost, market and income approach
  • Strong verbal/written communication and interpersonal skills, and the confidence to interact with senior stakeholders
  • Bachelor or Master degree in accounting, finance, economics, mathematics, engineering, actuarial or data science, with a relevant post-graduate qualification (e.g. CA, CFA, MBA or Masters in Finance) or an interest in undertaking one
  • A strong market presence and/or desire to build a profile within the Perth valuations community
