Why join the team?

Below are some first-hand comments from our staff on being part of the team at KordaMentha.

"I was attracted to Corporate Restructuring when considering Graduate jobs six years ago for the diversity of experience; every engagement is different with its own unique challenges and dynamics."

"Corporate recovery and restructuring is a field where you are entrusted with a high level of responsibility early on in your career, allowing you to develop soft skills and commercial acumen across a range of industries at a more junior level than in other professions.


During my time at KordaMentha I have had the opportunity to work alongside some of the most experienced and highly respected practitioners in the field. We operate in a supportive team environment where individual contributions are valued and there is considerable investment in the development of junior staff. The innovative approach taken by the firm in dealing with complex business issues distinguishes it from its competitors and allows you to be involved in developing and executing tangible value-add solutions.


There is an essential human element in Restructuring. Building relationships with key stakeholders is critical in order to improve outcomes and at KordaMentha we do so with a focus on empathy and open communication. Establishing those foundations and discovering ways to work through difficult issues in a sensitive manner is one of the main reasons why I find being an insolvency accountant at KordaMentha so rewarding."


Lara Wiggins, Associate Director, Melbourne Restructuring





"KordaMentha provides a platform that enables employees to focus on the task at hand and ultimately deliver the desired outcome.."

"KordaMentha Real Estate has given me the opportunity to be a member of a professional team with wide and varying skillsets that span the full spectrum of the property industry. The emphasis on team has proven to be a great strength within KM Real Estate and specific appointments have required our integrated expertise from advisory through to transaction management. 


Coming from a project sales and marketing background, focusing primarily on strategies to sell down luxury mixed use, and high rise towers, has proved to be good grounding for my current role in KM Sales and Marketing. Our core business drives strategic sales and marketing initiatives for both Investment Management and Project Marketing. Although our service line is highly results focused, KordaMentha’s systems, policies and procedures ensure that processes are followed and transactions are closely monitored.


Being part of an organisation which has such a respected name in the property industry builds instant credibility and reinforces integrity.”

Jayde Pezet, Director, Brisbane Real Estate

"Working with KordaMentha forensic has provided me with an opportunity to be involved in some of Australia’s highest profile, diverse and complex litigation."

"Our clients trust us to provide them with robust and ethical advice, with a focus on distilling the key issues, a tone which is present throughout the team and on all of the engagement that we undertake.


Continuous learning through both formal and informal study and training is actively encouraged, which has assisted me to develop both personally and professionally and to maintain KordaMentha forensic at the forefront of thought leadership in the industry."

"KordaMentha Restructuring challenges you from day one with meaningful work that makes a difference. Those challenges and opportunities never wane."

"When I joined KordaMentha as a graduate I had a limited understanding of what restructuring could be as a career. Some 12 years later I’m still here, and being challenged every day. In that time I have learned that restructuring is all about making a difference in difficult circumstances. Our engagements have given me insights into industries as diverse as mining, agriculture, property development and many more, as well as invaluable commercial experience. 


The memorable engagements for me are those where we could keep a business going and create a better outcome for all stakeholders. This is where you can really make a difference. Within the KordaMentha team, different opinions are valued and opportunities are there from day one to contribute and make a difference to the outcome of an engagement, a company and ultimately the people. You will work directly with senior staff on interesting, varied and rewarding engagements. You will be doing, not just advising, and you will never look back."


Simon Harris, Director, Perth Restructuring

"...the values that drew me to KordaMentha all that time ago still hold true now and it is for these reasons that I returned to the firm in 2009 after spending three years abroad."

“If you had asked me when I joined KordaMentha as a graduate 'where will you be in ten years time', I might not have believed you if you had told me that I would be a senior member of a premier corporate advisory firm with over 400 employees and a global presence. Interestingly, the values that drew me to KordaMentha all that time ago still hold true now and it is for these reasons that I returned to the firm in 2009 after spending three years abroad.

KordaMentha offers unparalleled opportunities for self development and career advancement. Every day I have the good fortune to work with high calibre individuals in a rewarding environment, connect with a significant network of prominent individuals in business and other professionals in the industry and garner responsibility for managing challenging and complex engagements.”
