Job Description

My client is seeking an accountant interested in joining a dynamic Forensic Accounting team in Sydney CBD. The right candidate will gain experience in conducting forensic financial investigations and be able to demonstrate the ability to handle with ease matters such as tracing hidden assets, tracing and quantifying misappropriated funds and be able to provide litigation reports on those findings.

As a Forensic Senior Accountant, you will apply critical thinking and analysis skills to identify key issues with financial and non-financial information and report on these within a variety of dispute advisory projects. Some of your duties will include:
  • Assist with the quantification, analysis and modelling of financial and non-financial information to assess economic loss.
  • Conduct research and analysis of a variety of business, industry and economic data/information.
  • Work in the construction of valuations for a range of businesses within a litigation or contentious context.
  • Assist in the planning and management of projects and cases.
  • Be able to actively liaise with clients and referrers on a day to day basis.
  • Have the opportunity to manage matters under direct Partner guidance
  • Be provided with autonomy to manage your projects and completion of deliverables to deadlines.

The candidate should have the following to ensure they are fit for the said role:
  • Experience working in public practice accounting, ideally with experience in private advisory/business services or audit.
  • Exposure to some forensic or business evaluation work is great, but certainly not essential.
  • A genuine interest in forensic accounting with a desire to build a successful career.
  • Good attention to detail, analytical brain and lateral thinker.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills, particularly with explaining technical concepts in plain English.
  • Continuing interest in developing and maintaining knowledge of current and evolving economic, business and industry issues.
  • An ability to work with changing and competing priorities to meet deadlines.
