A top 10 firm of International Accountants. Expanding the valuations team is a core strategy for growth hence presenting the right individual with an excellent career opportunity.
The Valuations team provides independent and insightful valuation advice to clients in the UK mid-market, with a focus on AIM listed Plcs and PE-backed private companies. The advice can be relied upon by our clients for a variety of purposes - from straight commercial transactions, through corporate restructurings, tax planning, financial reporting, and through to expert witness work in a dispute scenario. We work across sectors and encourage our staff to be generalists first and to develop sector specialisms in line with their own interests.
As a Manager, you will be responsible for managing valuation projects from beginning to end, including client take-on, day-to-day management of junior staff on the assignment, communicating with the Client and ensuring that the Director and Partners are kept informed and involved at the relevant points through the engagement.
You will liaise directly with colleagues in other departments (e.g. across Corporate Finance and Audit) where valuations is providing services to other areas of the Firm. In addition, Managers are expected to support the development of the wider team by taking responsibility for other areas, e.g. resourcing.
The candidate will be ambitious and commercially focused, with a willingness to work hard on identifying and pursuing business development opportunities. The candidate will be able to lead valuation projects independently, managing a team and client expectations. Most importantly the candidate will be a team player - extroverted and willing to go the extra mile for the good of the team. We are looking for, and promote, those candidates who are technically competent but more importantly who excel in a team environment and have strong interpersonal and leadership skills that complement their technical skill set.
It is essential that candidates have at least 3 to 4 years of full-time experience working in a valuations team in a professional services environment. An accounting qualification or CFA are also highly desirable pre-requisites for the position. It is essential that candidates will have been involved in, and delivered, valuation engagements in a variety of contexts (eg. financial reporting, commercial transactions, expert witness work). It is desirable that candidates have experience with assisting audit teams with the review of valuations in a financial reporting context, but not essential.
