Your new company
Hays are proud to have a longstanding relationship with this market-leading Forensic independent. The firm have a number of Experts highly regarded on the world stage. They attract work across a vast range of disputes and international arbitration, including contractual/commercial, financial services, construction/infrastructure, disputed transactions, competition matters, energy, treaty disputes, contentious valuations and much more.

Your new role
Working across much of the above, and with a variety of Partners/Experts, you'll be given full training on the job for your conversion to Forensic.
In detail, your role could include all or some of the following:

  • Principles of causation of damages (e.g. loss of profits, compensable costs, breach of warranties, misrepresentation, interest calculations)
  • Valuation and finance concepts (e.g. cost of capital, risk adjusted discount rates)
  • Modelling, testing, documenting financial scenarios and anticipating challenges
  • Analysing strengths/weaknesses of opposing cases, formulating alternative damage scenarios and advising on strategic implications
  • Different dispute resolution mechanisms (e.g. trial, civil hearing, mediation, arbitration, regulatory/competition tribunals)
  • Sale and purchase agreements, completion accounts, expert determination and transaction related disputes
  • Review of policies and procedures, internal processes and controls
  • Preparation of forensic/expert witness reports including review, analysis and verification of evidence
  • Liaising with clients, in-house counsel, external legal teams, witnesses, other experts, and regulatory enforcers

What you'll need to succeed

  • Strong academic record
  • Newly or recently qualified ACA
  • Background in external audit or advisory
  • Ability to spot the unusual and the persistence to discover the cause
  • Ability to communicate efficiently with Project Management and with existing & prospective clients, their consultants and legal teams in their native language (Russian)
  • Experience of understanding, digesting, explaining, analysing company accounts and financial information
  • Ability to work under pressure and to multiple deadlines

What you'll get in return
High calibre work, equivalent to Big 4 or major international firm. A career trajectory only limited by ability or ambition. And a firm which has a proven track record of developing future Experts.
