Economics / Property Economics Consultant – NSW

  • Help solve complex problems for a range of top tier clients in both public & private sectors
  • Client facing opportunity 
  • Suit someone in a valuation/property research role looking for more diversity in their role

This leading consultancy works for a range of both public and private sector clients, helping them solve a range of property, land use and development related issues nationally.  Projects vary from reviewing existing property portfolios, testing planning controls and policy settings, providing feasibility advice, compulsory acquisition/compensation work, expert evidence/advocacy work relating to economic justification for major development, development land use and staging, gathering market intelligence for employment land strategies and housing strategies, providing economic expertise into urban revitalisation projects as well as the opportunity to work on important societal issues that shape the way people live and work, for example delivery of affordable housing and infrastructure that supports development.

As you will work across a range of projects, no two problems that you face will be the same and the key to this consultancy’s success is, their ability to firstly understand the problem and then develop innovative approaches to finding a solution. Equally critical, is then the ability to articulate findings and develop a comprehensive narrative which can be used as the basis for their clients’ long-term decision making and investment strategies. 

Whilst operating at a high level is required, our client is seeking someone who can grow into the role, and so is not expecting the “fully-finished article”, but rather seeking someone with the aptitude and passion to make the role their own.

Traits of the successful candidate are likely to include:

  • At least 2-4 years’ experience working in a consulting environment.
  • Strong understanding of the property and development industry so tertiary qualifications in either Property Economics or similar will be highly regarded.
  • An ability to challenge the norm and apply blue-sky thinking. The role requires a person to have the intelligence to work on ‘non-standard’ projects where they will need to develop bespoke strategies to generate a solution and have the awareness to identify competing issues and counter-arguments which may affect their results.
  • Be comfortable working in a numerically biased role and be comfortable working with data on a day-day basis (using both Excel and Estate Master – although previous Estate Master experience isn’t mandatory).
  • Strong communication skills that will enable them to establish and maintain trust of a broad client stakeholder group in the decision-making processes.
  • Excellent report writing skills to factually set out information and explain in lay terms what may be a highly technical subject matter for decision makers to understand and be confident writing non-templated reports about complex issues.
  • Be personable with the ability to develop professional networks and nurturing client relationships.
  • Able to self-organise, set priorities, and meet deadlines.

We would be especially interested in talking to either Valuers (not necessarily certified) or Property Research professionals who are likely to have the above skills, but potentially be feeling stifled in their current role.  GIS mapping capabilities would be advantageous to the role.
