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 vacationer, 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. You may only be here for a short time, but you will get exposure to a wide variety of tasks and by the end of the placement, you'll have a really good understanding of the industry and whether this is something you'd like to do as a graduate career!

Your opportunity: Forensic

Our forensic group uncovers, analyzes, and clarifies facts at the center of disputes, investigations, and other sensitive matters. We are one of the largest teams of forensic investigators, forensic accountants, and forensic technology specialists in Asia-Pacific and are regularly called on to provide evidence insensitive, high-profile disputes and investigations.

This vacationer's role is to work primarily in forensic accounting and investigations.

We consider applicants with any degree, not just accounting. We value curiosity and creativity, and we are looking for vacationers who can work as part of an expert team to solve our clients' most difficult problems. Our work involves explaining difficult and complex concepts to our clients, often in a report or presentation, so we are looking for all-rounders who enjoy writing as much as analyzing numbers.

What you'll be doing

As a forensic vacationer, you need to be able to take complex information and present it in a simple way. This normally involves reviewing and analyzing evidence, both factual and financial, and our findings may even be used in Court. While no two days will be the same, you can expect to work on a wide variety of complex projects, including forensic accounting, data analytics, and investigations. Some of the work might include the following:

  • review and analyze financial information to really understand the data, and to perhaps determine if any anomalies exist
  • draft reports of key findings for clients, often for use as an independent expert in court.
  • build simple financial models
  • scrutinize information using professional skepticism
  • attend client and internal meetings
  • attend interviews of witnesses/suspects with senior staff and take notes
  • contribute to our popular series of publications and blogs
  • attend events and other marketing activities with lawyers and other clients

But it's not all about work. You'll be given a buddy to help you navigate office life as you settle in. We have regular catch-ups with People and Culture to ensure you are getting the most out of your placement. 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.

About you

You will be a student in your penultimate year of study and will have:

  • a Bachelor degree with strong academic results, preferably in accounting, commerce, science, technology, engineering, or mathematics
  • a razor-sharp eye for detail and advanced critical thinking skills
  • excellent analytical, technical, and communication skills with an ability to think outside-the-box
  • strong interpersonal qualities
  • a focus on delivering excellent client service
  • strong academic results
  • be available for 4 or 8 weeks between late November 2022 and late January 2023
  • 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.
