Senior Associates – Valuations – Birmingham
Salary: Competitive
Location: Birmingham
Closing date: 1st March 2018
About The Team

Valuations is a business unit within the PwC Deals offering. The Valuations team (of around 140 people) provides advice on the valuations of shares, businesses, intangible assets and debt and derivative instruments to a wide range of clients, including government offices, private equity houses, family businesses, multinational conglomerates and individuals. Clients come to us to obtain our advice on valuation for many reasons, including to support them in transactions, to provide expert advice in disputes, to negotiate valuations with the tax authorities and to comply with their financial reporting, regulatory or tax requirements. As valuers we need to fully understand our clients’ commercial realities and those of the industries in which they operate. We pride ourselves on being the largest dedicated valuations practice in the UK, and the only one with a focus on industry specialisms. Our objective is to provide our clients with commercial, pragmatic valuation analysis that draws on industry insight and is grounded in technical excellence.

About The Role

You will be intimately involved in developing and growing a specialist tax valuation hub focusing on supporting and growing the national valuation business in Birmingham. Over the last year the team has received significant investment and is now our largest valuations team outside of London. In line with the firm’s strategy we are expecting this to continue in the years to come.

As a Senior Associate, you'll contribute to the valuation process by carrying out financial modelling, and financial analysis of companies, across a variety of industry sectors. You will also prepare substantial sections of final valuation reports. Working alongside senior colleagues and senior clients, you'll have plenty of opportunity to build skills in business development and marketing, in particular building relationships and contributing to joint route to market strategies with our national Xlos practice.

Who We Are Looking For

We are looking for someone with experience of commercial, client-facing work, so you'll be able to grasp key business drivers and specific valuation issues quickly.



Our Deals business is an exciting, fast-paced and an ever-growing business that focuses on deals and crisis situations for our clients. Collectively, we deal with the types of situations you hear about regularly in the news and we provide support, insight and analysis to the management, shareholders and financiers of business.

The skills we look for in future employees

These skills and behaviours make up our global leadership framework, ‘The PwC Professional’ and are made up of five core attributes; whole leadership, technical capabilities, business acumen, global acumen and relationships.
