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 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!
Applying ‘a different mindset’ is at the heart of everything KordaMentha does, and it is fuelled by the diversity of our peoples’ experiences and backgrounds. We are committed to enhancing diversity within the firm and celebrating differences. We work with our people to make reasonable adjustments and support their ability to thrive in a positive, barrier-free environment through the recruitment process and into the workplace.
Your opportunity: Forensic Technology
We are currently seeking expressions of interest for people with a different mindset to join our Forensic Technology teams for our 2022/2023 vacationer intake. Placements take place over summer from November 2022 to January 2023. We will be recruiting across the country, so please let us know what state you are interested in.
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.
Our forensic technology group helps to identify, preserve, analyse and present electronic evidence to assist in investigations and disputes. Whether it be imaging personal computers, servers or mobile phones, or perhaps investigating a cyber hack, we quickly identify the facts. Our work often involves explaining difficult and complex concepts to our clients, often in a report or presentation, so we are looking for applicants with great written skills as well as a keen interest in technology.
What you’ll be doing
As a vacationer in our forensic technology group, you’ll work as part of a diverse team and will learn the specialist skills and methodologies to become an expert in digital forensic and forensic discovery. While no two days will be the same, you can expect to:
- work in a high tech forensic laboratory using cutting-edge equipment
- conduct forensic imaging of computers and other electronic devices (e.g. flash media, smartphones) to find and secure evidence
- conduct digital aspects of investigations alongside our expert investigators
- research new opportunities and assist with the preparation of proposals
- attend training courses to keep up to date with industry leading software
- attend events and other marketing activities
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.
You will be a student in your penultimate year of study and will have:
- an IT, computer science or law degree with strong academic results.
- excellent analytical and technical skills, with an ability to think outside-the-box.
- strong written skills.
- great communication skills and enjoy working in a team.
- be available to work 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).
If you submit an expression of interest, we will contact you when applications have opened!
