Achieve more, enjoy more
At KordaMentha our work is extraordinarily varied. We advise businesses, governments, and organisations when they have something important to make happen. Sometimes they’re in financial trouble, sometimes they want to meet a growth challenge, often it’s to manage risk. Always, it’s interesting.
When you join us as a graduate or vacationer, you’ll immediately become part of a clever, creative and entrepreneurial team that works together to solve complex business problems. That means you’ll be part of a supportive environment where you’ll learn from a diverse group of problem solvers while we invest in your study and training.
Of course, it’s not all about work. We host regular events and activities, bringing together our close‑knit team in a friendly and relaxed environment where you can get to know the people behind the professionals.
Begin a career pathway from day one
Each year, we recruit a select number of bright, well‑rounded graduates and students in the final year of their degree for our award‑winning graduate program. We also look for high-performing students in their second to last year for a four or eight week work placement through our vacationer program which runs during the summer university break.
Rather than run the standard-type of rotational program, we recruit graduates and vacationers directly into one of our specialist areas below based on your interests, skills and field of study. This way you can sink your teeth into your chosen career sooner. Life’s short – make bigger waves, earlier!
Solve complex commercial problems in critical situations. Our Restructuring team works with companies in financial distress – to restructure and stabilise the business or to recover value on behalf of stakeholders. Within our Restructuring team, you’ll work in project teams to creatively manage Australia’s largest and most complex turnarounds, corporate restructures, receiverships, administrations, and liquidations.
Advise, build, and maintain value in property portfolios. Our specialist Real Estate team advise on developing and transacting real estate – their own, their clients’ and in conjunction with joint venture partners. Within our Real Estate team, you’ll gain exposure to a wide range of property assets and will learn advanced property fundamentals, from a passionate team with expertise in property development, sales, contract administration, funds management and investment portfolios.
The devil is always in the detail, so help reveal the truth and find out what really happened. Our Forensic team uncover, analyse, and clarify facts at the centre of disputes, investigations, and other sensitive matters. They are one of the largest teams of forensic investigators and forensic accountants in Asia-Pacific and are regularly called on to provide evidence in sensitive, high-profile disputes and investigations. Within our Forensic team, you’ll have the opportunity to be involved in complex, challenging and often high-profile projects entailing forensic accounting, investigations, and data analytics.
Dig deep into buried electronic information. Our Forensic Technology team help to identify, preserve, analyse, and present electronic evidence in investigations and disputes. Whether the data is on personal computers, computer servers, mobile phones, or in the cloud, they identify the facts. Within our Forensic Technology team, you’ll work as part of a diverse group and learn the specialist skills and methodologies to become an expert in digital forensics and forensic discovery.
Protect against and fight this growing area of crime. Our Financial Crimes team helps clients navigate the complexities of Australia’s financial crime regimes to ensure businesses understand what they need to do to protect the community. We believe the key to financial crime risk management and compliance is having a clear strategy and access to expert advice. Within our Financial Crimes team, you’ll partner with clients to manage financial crime risk, undertake compliance reviews, provide advice, and conduct investigations into alleged breaches.
Protecting and responding. Our cybersecurity team assists clients with the design and adoption of strong governance, operating models, and risk reporting frameworks. When cyber incidents occur, clients rely on our cyber response experts to rapidly intercept breaches and minimise impacts. Within our Cybersecurity team, you’ll deliver solutions that help organisations manage their cybersecurity risk and respond to incidents.
Make meaningful change. Our Performance Improvement team works with clients who are genuinely motivated to do things differently. We solve strategic, financial, commercial, and operational problems often considered by insiders to be too difficult to tackle, let alone fix. Within our Performance Improvement team, you’ll work with diverse stakeholders on projects that are critical to the ongoing success of the organisation, making a real difference.

You’ll get tailored support, expert mentoring, the opportunity to give back to your community and the freedom to achieve in a flexible manner.
