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 one with the deepest 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.

We are looking for a confident and proactive valuation expert for a Senior Manager position within either Edinburgh or Glasgow. Ideally, a candidate would have industry experience in either energy, infrastructure or financial services valuations.

About the role

The role is an exciting opportunity to help lead a growing team and responsibilities would include owning and growing client relationships as well as managing an enthusiastic junior team. The focus would be on Scottish clients but we operate as a national team so there will be plenty of opportunity to work both remotely and in person with our team around the UK. We perform valuation support for businesses of all sizes and stages of development and the role would give a great opportunity to work with a mix of start-ups and leading global organisations.

The successful candidate will demonstrate their ability to be proactive and work autonomously; their experience and ability to lead and motivate a team; their ability to coach and develop junior staff; and their technical expertise within valuations.

You will be intimately involved in developing and growing a specialist valuation hub focusing on supporting and growing the national valuation business in Scotland. 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.

  • Leading and overseeing financial modelling assignments as part of the valuation process. You will therefore need to be proficient in Excel with solid financial modelling experience.
  • Writing and reviewing valuation reports / analysis. Communicating this analysis to senior internal and external stakeholders.
  • Leading day to day client relationships on projects.
  • Coaching junior staff in a mix of technical valuations skills, industry knowledge and soft skills.
  • Working with the Scottish Deals partners and directors to build, develop and manage client relationships, including ownership of relationships with current and prospective clients.

Essential Skills and Experience

  • Relevant industry qualification such as ACA, ACCA or CFA
  • Valuation experience including valuations of shares, debt and businesses
  • Ideally you will have experience of performing valuations for tax purposes

Aside from the technical valuation skills we would expect the candidate to have good business and client relationship development capabilities, strong communication and people management skills.
