The question of ‘value’ is at the heart of corporate and investment decision-making.


Our specialist Valuations team provides valuation opinions and advice in situations of strategic change and commercial importance. We assist clients in managing and reporting on value for a variety of purposes, including mergers & acquisitions, strategy selection, financial reporting, tax, and litigation. We value enterprises, shares and intangible assets (such as technology and brands) across all industries. We are a passionate and supportive team who work collaboratively across a diverse range of projects in an environment that fosters wellbeing and rewards success.


We are Australia’s leading and fastest growing corporate valuations team and are currently recruiting at the Manager level in Melbourne.

What will your typical day look like?


Your work will be varied and will offer an outstanding opportunity to develop your pre-existing technical skillset whilst taking up a key 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.

You will be exposed to a range of clients, including multi-nationals, high-growth companies, financial institutions, private equity and legal firms.


More specifically, working in a supportive and collegial team, you will be involved in:

  • 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
  • Develop, review and interpret analysis, valuation reports, exhibits, letters and other client deliverables, and present clearly articulated and insightful conclusions
  • Work in diverse teams within an inclusive team culture where people are recognised for their contribution
  • Preparation of valuation reports and other client deliverables
  • Project management including managing client relationships and engagement budgets
  • Developing and maintaining key relationships across our client base, with a focus on exceptional client service
