(Commercial Advisory and Transactions - Melbourne and Sydney)

Do you wish to be part of significant deals and opportunities that solve for net zero emissions?

We are building capacity in our Commercial Advisory and Transactions, Management Consulting and Sustainability teams to advise corporates and governments on the energy and climate transition. We are looking for exceptional candidates from Analyst to Manager levels that can make a difference in this critical task.

As part of one of the most trusted and respected global professional services firms, KPMG Australia’s Infrastructure, Assets and Places (IAP) group brings together market-leading strategic, commercial and technical capabilities to create something that is truly unique for our clients and our people. We provide in-depth advice on the strategic, financial and commercial issues driving investments in infrastructure across Transport, Power & Utilities, and Social Infrastructure.

Within IAP, our Commercial Advisory & Transactions (CA&T) team works on some of the most complex energy challenges and transactions in the market today. Whether advising on a deal, in depth advice on the strategic, regulatory, financial and commercial solutions to drive investment, or structuring a new market entry, we support clients in all facets of the energy sector. We work with corporations, governments, funds, both locally and internally and are a team of strong analytical thinkers, who have a passion for solving important problems. We work as an integrated multidisciplinary team of financial, commercial, engineering, regulatory and legal experts to provide the best solutions for our clients’ needs.

Power & Utilities is a key focus for KPMG, encompassing work for many of the leading Australian energy and utility companies as well as policy makers and industry bodies. We partner with public sector clients to develop energy & utility policies, support execution of policy programs and assist in supporting renewable energy projects developments. Our advice spans from the strategic thinking, regulatory strategy and advice to companies and investors to enable private capital to fund infrastructure to the detailed technical skills required at financial close.

We work closely with other functions within KPMG to advise clients on mergers and acquisitions, legal, valuations, tax, accounting, due diligence issues, sustainability and decarbonisation strategies.
