Who we're looking for

A highly motivated real estate professional with significant experience in valuations, preferably in sectors such as hotels, hospitality, healthcare or housing (development) to join a fast growing team as a Manager.

About the team

Our Valuations business is 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.

Within this wider Valuations business, our Real Estate and Capital Equipments valuations team advise clients and other teams within PwC on a range of value considerations. This can be for a variety of purposes including transactions, strategic planning, restructuring or financial reporting purposes. We advise on a huge range of situations and asset classes, including both domestic and global portfolios / transactions.

About the role

We're looking to recruit an experienced RICS qualified valuer to join the team at Manager level to help us continue the growth of our Real Estate valuations practice. Whilst the successful candidate will almost certainly get the opportunity to work on situations across a wide range of sectors and markets, we are particularly interested in candidates with experience in the valuation of hotels, hospitality, healthcare or housing (development) assets.

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 proportion of your time would be spent supporting our Assurance practice in relation to their audit of client financial statements with exposure to real estate assets.

This provides the opportunity for a successful candidate to work in a fast paced business alongside a team which has grown significantly over the past 12 months and is forecast to continue to grow, both in size and new areas of work.

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

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
  • 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.

Skills and Experience

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 financial modelling experience
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Good project and time management skills
  • Professional verbal and written English

In addition, some experience in one or more of the following would also be preferable:
  • Experience in the valuation of hotels and hospitality assets;
  • Experience in the residential sector, including housing, housebuilders and development valuations;
  • Experience in the valuation of healthcare assets (for example private hospitals, retirement living and care-home assets)
  • Some previous 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 capital equipment and real estate valuation.

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.
