Job description

About the Team

We are a thriving, growing and innovative team of individuals who work collaboratively with our clients to value their businesses, shares, financial instruments and intangible and tangible assets. Our valuation insights are used to help our clients make commercial decisions, resolve disputes and meet their regulatory requirements.

Our team is large, and industry focused. We have around 150 people in the UK and we work along industry lines, as we believe that having a proper understanding of the issues and opportunities facing each sector is critical to producing commercial and robust valuations.

We work alongside our PwC colleagues regularly, for example with our due diligence and corporate finance colleagues as part of transactions, with our restructuring team for businesses in distress and with our tax and audit colleagues to support discussions with regulators and other stakeholders.

Our client base is wide and varied, reflecting our reach into the market and the strong brand recognition. At any given time we will be working with multinational corporates, private equity, family businesses and intermediaries. Clients have confidence calling upon our team to share our insights and independent views on valuations, recognising our extensive experience, breadth and commercial and technical acumen.

The day to day roles of our large pool of Senior Associates typically include research, financial analysis, financial modelling and report writing, alongside the more intangible roles of developing relationships, coaching others, contributing to thought leadership and being part of teams winning and delivering work.

We have potential opportunities across these locations, with successful candidates also being able to split their time working from the office and from home where practical.
