Different Mindset. Different Opportunity.

At KordaMentha, we're known for doing things differently. And we're known for coming up with bold new ways to help clients solve their most complex commercial problems.

We help clients throughout their lifecycle. We help them grow and maximize value. We help protect them against financial loss and reputational damage. And we help them recover value in tough times.

At KordaMentha, we provide the opportunity to work on interesting and varied engagements, where no two days are the same.

By joining us as a graduate, you will become part of a unique, creative, and entrepreneurial team that works together to solve complex business problems. You will be given the opportunity to engage in a supportive environment where you're encouraged to ask "what if?" and "why not?" to find new ways to help clients grow, protect and recover value. Best of all, you'll learn from a diverse group of people while we invest in your study and training.

Your opportunity: Restructuring

Our leading restructuring group works with companies in financial distress – to restructure and stabilize the business or to recover value on behalf of stakeholders. We work for company directors, lenders, shareholders, employees, and other creditors to recover value on their behalf. Looking beyond the numbers, we consider how our actions affect people's lives and communities. Taking bold and creative steps, we achieve the best result for all stakeholders.

Our Restructuring group has been entrusted with many of Asia-Pacific's largest and most complex corporate restructures, including Network Ten, Arrium, Tassal, Gunns, Timbercorp, Forge, Roger David, SKM, and Ansett Australia, and the recent restructures of retailers Seafolly and Tigerlily.

What you'll be doing

As a graduate in our restructuring group, you'll work in creative project teams to manage Australia's largest and most complex corporate restructures, receiverships, administrations, and liquidations. While no two days will be the same, you can expect to:

  • work onsite to assist the team with the day to day running of distressed business
  • manage creditor enquires and process receipts and payments
  • help to meet statutory obligations including preparing business activity statements and ASIC forms
  • attend meetings with clients and key stakeholders
  • participate in business development and marketing activities
  • research new opportunities by analyzing financial and market information and reporting back to Partners

But it's not all about work. You'll be given a buddy to help you navigate office life as you settle in. You'll choose a mentor who will help guide your career. We host regular events and activities, bringing together our close-knit team in a friendly and relaxed environment so you can get to know the people behind the professionals. You'll also become a member of Accelerate, our young professional networking group.

You can also make a positive difference in your community through regular charity and industry events. Whether it's volunteering at local food rescue venues or participating in a stair challenge or bike rides to raise money for children's charities, you can get involved and give back.

About you

You will be a recent graduate or student in your final year of study and will have:

  • an accounting or finance degree
  • empathy and integrity
  • strong problem solving and negotiating skills
  • excellent analytical, technical, and communication skills
  • an ability to think outside-the-box
  • strong interpersonal qualities
  • a focus on delivering excellent client service
  • strong academic results
  • some prior work experience
  • eligibility to live and work in Australia (Australian citizens and permanent residents only)

Applications close – 31 August 2021

The best thing about my job is the variety of work – even if it is the same task you’ve done 100 times, you always have to adapt it to the current client/project and therefore always critically think.
