2020/2021 Vacationer Program – Restructuring - Sydney

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 maximise 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 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 stabilise the business or to recover value on behalf of stakeholders. We are seeking people with a different mindset to join our Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne teams for our 2020/2021 vacationer intake. You will work for either 4 or 8 weeks over summer.

What you’ll be doing

You’ll work in creative project teams to manage Australia’s largest and most complex corporate restructures, receiverships, administrations and liquidations. As a vacationer with us you can expect to:

  • work along alongside our clients to assist them with the day-to-day management of distressed businesses, gaining practical skills about running a business
  • manage affected stakeholders, from employees to creditors
  • help to meet statutory obligations required for the engagements
  • join meetings with clients and key stakeholders
  • participate in business development and marketing activities allowing you to develop relationships with your peers, both inside and outside the firm
  • identify and research new opportunities by analysing 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. 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 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.
