Job description

A career within Deals Transaction Services, will provide you the opportunity to help organisations realise the potential of mergers, acquisitions and divestitures and capital markets. In short, we help some of the world's leading companies originate, create, execute, and realise value from deals. Through data driven insights we help our clients move in the right direction ensuring maximum value for their company.
About the team

The PwC Valuations team (of approximately 170 people) provides advice on the valuation of shares, businesses, real estate, capital equipment and debt and derivative instruments to a wide range of clients, including property companies and institutional investors, government offices, private equity houses, family businesses, multinational conglomerates and individuals.

Clients come to us to obtain our advice on valuation for many reasons, including to support them in transactions, provide expert advice in disputes, negotiate valuations with the tax authorities and to comply with their financial reporting, regulatory or tax requirements.

As valuers we need to fully understand our clients' commercial realities and those of the industries in which they operate. Our objective is to provide our clients with commercial, pragmatic valuation analysis that draws on industry insight and is grounded in technical excellence.

About the role

We are looking to recruit an experienced, RICS qualified real estate valuer to join the team at a Senior Associate level in order to help provide additional bandwidth and facilitate growth.

The role would provide you with an opportunity to work on a range of client engagements and with a number of other teams within our co-located real estate advisory practice (e.g. corporate finance, restructuring, due diligence, strategy, tax and legal). Alongside this, we would expect that a significant proportion of your time would be spent supporting our Assurance practice in relation to their audit of client financial statements.

Whilst the majority of the existing team are based in London, there is some flexibility with respect to location and the successful candidate would have scope to base themselves in other regional UK PwC offices (including Birmingham or Cardiff) if they prefer. There would also be scope for the to split their time across multiple locations and/or from home.

This is an exciting time to join our Valuations business, providing the opportunity to grow and develop your network and experience.


You will be active across all areas of our work and with exposure to clients and their advisors in order to support and develop our provision of real estate orientated advice to external and internal clients.

Responsibilities will include the following:
  • Carrying-out the reviews of real estate asset valuations in support of audit, tax, dispute or transaction purposes. You would be expected to lead on the work and report directly to the relevant contact, under the supervision of a Senior Manager, Director (or similar);
  • Working on valuation, due diligence and corporate real estate assignments. This would typically be as part of a wider PwC team, however often requiring you to work independently on key work streams (depending on skills and experience);
  • Undertake and review financial modelling as part of the valuation process;
  • Preparation of presentations / reports;
  • Working alongside other PwC teams / specialist lines of service (such as corporate finance, assurance, due diligence, tax or business valuations);
  • Input into engagement acceptance and risk management procedures, including management and oversight of budgets and resources; and
  • Supporting and working alongside other senior team members in the development of new business in the sector, including preparation of proposals and pitches, attendance at presentations and identifying opportunities for sell-on of existing work.

The following skills are required for this role:
  • RICS qualified (or other similar real estate qualification) or with practical real estate advisory experience (with some portion of this having been with a valuations focus)
  • Good knowledge of commercial real estate markets
  • Willingness to learn and take on responsibility
  • Strong interpersonal skills and comfortable communicating at all levels
  • Ability to work effectively in teams and, on occasion, to tight deadlines
  • Proven ability to deliver high quality written work
  • Strong analytical skills but tempered with an ability to think laterally
  • Good MS Excel (and preferably some financial modelling experience)
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Good project and time management skills
  • Professional verbal and written English

In addition, the following experience would also be preferable:
  • Experience in real estate development valuations
  • Experience in the valuation of operating assets (e.g. hotels)
  • Some financial reporting experience

You will be joining an experienced and diverse team who will welcome your outlook and knowledge while also helping you to broaden and deepen your understanding of real estate valuation and advisory.

You will also have the opportunity to take increasing amounts of responsibility and ownership of projects as your experience develops whilst being provided with required and flexible support.
