Expressions of Interest - 2022/2023 Vacationer Program - Real Estate

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: Real Estate

We are currently seeking expressions of interest for people with a different mindset to join our Real Estate 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 specialist real estate advisory group help clients to grow, protect and recover value in their real estate portfolios. We advise on, develop and transact real estate – our own, our clients and in conjunction with joint venture partners. With a unique set of real estate consulting and insolvency capabilities, we have advised upon or transacted over $14 billion in real estate projects. 

What you’ll be doing

As a vacationer in our real estate group, you’ll gain exposure to a wide range of property assets and will learn advanced property fundamentals from a passionate team with backgrounds in property development, valuations, sales and marketing, property law, contract administration, funds management and investment banking. The vacation program runs for a period of 4 - 8 weeks in the university summer break. While no two days will be the same, you can expect to:

  • work on a wide range of asset classes 
  • work alongside our restructuring team, reviewing and assessing properties involved in business turnarounds 
  • manage distressed property transactions
  • assist in new development opportunities the firm is completing 
  • research real estate investment opportunities on behalf of high net worth clients
  • attend meetings with clients and key stakeholders 
  • participate in business development and 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.
