About Us

KordaMentha

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 maximise value. We help protect them against financial loss and reputational damage. And we help them recover value in tough times.

We can have opportunities to join as a graduate or vacationer in the following teams:

  • Restructuring
  • Forensic Accounting
  • Forensic Technology
  • Data Analytics
  • Real Estate

Rather than run a rotational program, we recruit graduates and vacationers directly into one of our specialist areas based on their interests, skills and field of study so they can sink their teeth into their chosen career sooner.

Why Join Us?

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 or 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.

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 professionals 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.

Some of the things you can get involved in include:

  • Team donation days at Lifeblood
  • Volunteer at FareShare Food Rescue
  • Push yourself with a Stair Challenge to raise money for charity
  • Bake up a storm for Australia's Biggest Morning Tea
  • and much more!

When you join us as a graduate, you immediately become part of a unique, creative and entrepreneurial team that work together to solve complex business problems.

You'll work in a supportive environment where you are encouraged to ask "What if...?" and "Why not...?" to find new ways to help clients grow, protect and recover value. And you'll get to work with and learn from a great mix of people with diverse backgrounds while we invest in your study and training.

Employee Profiles

Mimi

Mimi – Restructuring – Melbourne

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. You are constantly learning and being challenged and for that I do not doubt that I’m in the right job.

Tips for students:

  1. Take the time to find something you are interested in or at the very least, would be okay doing every day! There is no rush.
  2. Do not be afraid to give it your all - take any and all opportunities that come your way and seek a few out yourself. 
  3. But remember, careers can be an important part of a person’s life, but they are not your whole life. Do not put too much pressure on yourself and judge yourself on your own notion of ambition and success.

Elizabeth

Elizabeth – Forensic – Melbourne

When I say that no job is the same – it really is true. Forensic Accounting is not your typical accounting (such as tax or audit). So, my days can consist of attending interviews of suspects in an investigation, reviewing confidential emails, conducting financial analysis and reviewing heaps and heaps of documents. The best part of my job is being in small teams such that I often get to work directly with Directors and Partners which helps me learn so much so quickly. 

Tips for students:

  1. Make the most of all the “free time” you have. Travel, volunteer, explore and do all the things that might be more difficult in full time work.
  2. Establish your base community and build relationships with people now. Full-time work can be a big change so it’s really important to have family and friends that can understand and support you. Hopefully you will make heaps of friends at work, but it’s good to have people outside of work too! 
  3. Learn from every experience, there is rarely ever a wrong decision. You either enjoy the outcome of your decision or you do not. We are always learning so every mistake is an opportunity to learn from it and do better next time.

Caitlyn

Caitlyn – Restructuring - Perth

The best part of my job is being able to speak to people who are confused and scared about losing their investments and being able to provide them some comfort and familiarity over the process and what’s going to happen next.

Tips for students:

  1. Travel as much as you can during uni because you’ll never again have three months off at the end of every year! Best to make the most of it.
  2. Join a few clubs at uni – would be a great way to diversify your group of friends
  3. Make the effort to make connections with your tutors as once you’re in the workforce they could be useful connections.

Social Responsibility

At KordaMentha, we recognise the value of giving back to the community as demonstrated by our active engagement in a range of charity initiatives.

You can 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.
