November 2, 2021

BVWire—UK notes an increase in job postings for business valuation managers. The leading job boards are showing more postings for contentious valuations managers or associate directors this month, indicating increased demand from some of the high-profile disputes. The increased postings all require candidates with valuation dispute experience and typically prefer ACA or ACCA qualifications. Specialisms, mentorship with experienced partners, and international career advancement are typically included in these listings as benefits, as is a diverse set of complex project work including damages valuation, mediation, competition disputes, intellectual property/intangibles analyses, purchase agreements, and family or tax engagements.

There may be more demand for client-facing managers who can lead junior analysts than supply for these opportunities, so promises of working on high-profile cases, directly with partners and clients, are common in the current listings.
