• Work collaboratively with PwC network firms, including UK, Middle East and Ireland on valuation, on audit due diligence and corporate real estate assignments. This would typically be as part of a wider PwC team, including other service lines such as audit, corporate finance, due diligence, tax or business valuations; however often requiring you to work independently on key work streams (depending on skills and experience);
• Undertake and review real estate valuations, including financial modelling as part of the valuation process;
• Preparation of presentations / reports;
• Coaching more junior team members in respect of technical valuation and market knowledge as part of client assignments, in order to support the development of our growing team;
• Input into project / engagement management, including acceptance and risk procedures, management of budget / resources, delivery and client management;

• Supporting and working alongside other senior team members in the development of new business in the sector, including preparation of proposals and pitches, attendance at presentations and identifying opportunities for sell-on of existing work.

Essential Skills and Experience
The following skills are required for this role:
• RICS qualified (or other similar real estate qualification) or with significant real estate advisory experience (a significant proportion of which should have been with a valuations focus)
• Good knowledge of commercial real estate markets
• Willingness to learn and take on a high degree of responsibility
• Strong interpersonal skills and comfortable communicating at all levels
• Ability to work effectively in teams and, on occasion, to tight deadlines

You will be joining an experienced and diverse team who will welcome your outlook and knowledge while also helping you to broaden and deepen your understanding of real estate valuation and advisory.

You will also have the opportunity to take increasing amounts of responsibility and ownership of projects as your experience develops whilst being provided with required and flexible support.

Whilst we envisage the role being based in the Channel Islands, we are a firm which practices everyday flexibility. As such, there would be some scope for the individual to split some of their time working from home.
