2020/2021 Vacationer Program – Forensic - Perth

We are currently seeking people with a different mindset to join our Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth forensic teams for our 2020/2021 vacationer intake.

Our forensic group uncover, analyse and clarify facts at the centre 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 in sensitive, high-profile disputes and investigations.

This vacationer 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 analysing 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 analysing 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 analyse 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
  • scrutinise information using professional scepticism
  • 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

In addition to the above, you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • receive support through the buddy program
  • work on interesting, varied and rewarding projects alongside bold and creative thinkers
  • work on behalf of high profile clients to solve complex commercial challenges
  • gain experience across numerous industries
  • work within a unique and supportive culture with an open-door policy
  • work within a flexible and accommodating work environment

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 2020 and late January 2021
  • eligibility to live and work in Australia (Australian citizens and permanent residents only)
