The role in brief:

An opportunity has arisen to join the corporate tax team as an adviser – at a senior level, either on a full time or part time basis.

Who we are looking for:

This is an ideal opportunity for someone who already has some initial experience working within a tax team and wants to progress, perhaps gain some exposure to tax planning, or has an accounts background and is seeking a move into corporate tax.  Alternatively, this role would suit someone experienced in corporate tax wanting either to return to the workplace.


What the role involves:

You will be a part of our corporate tax team providing an excellent tax compliance and planning service to a large range of corporate clients and business owners.

You will start by building or developing on your experience of corporation tax compliance, preparing corporation tax computations and returns and tax provisions for accounts.

You will have responsibility for managing tax return filing deadlines from the start and your responsibility will grow as you progress.

You will start to have client contact from day one as well as working closely with our accounting and auditing team members.

As your experience grows, you will get involved in working on more complex clients such as larger groups and international clients and HMRC enquiries.

You will also get involved in advisory work for clients – initially in corporate tax but broadening into reconstructions, company sales and acquisitions and tax planning for the business owner as well as the company.


Your development

They will provide a study package towards the CTA qualification if desired by the candidate, including study leave and will mentor you through your qualification journey.

They also provide a complementary range of training opportunities to ensure that you maximise your potential in areas such as becoming a trusted adviser, how to network, presentation skills etc with opportunities for progression around the firm.

They have quarterly performance review conversations to ensure your development is on track. They also hope to develop this role further beyond Senior Adviser level for the candidate who would like it.

They also encourage you to get involved in wider firm initiatives and have your say on how we can progress on our journey towards being the best North West firm of finance professionals.


Your attributes:

As well as some relevant experience in accountancy and/or corporate tax, we’d like you to be:

• Keen to play an active role in a dynamic team and willing to contribute to the success of the team     and the firm as a whole.

• Passionate about providing great client service.

• Great at communicating with people at all levels – face to face and in writing.

• Positive and good at using your initiative.

Not found the perfect role, here is the thing….

You will also know that if you are working in Accountancy, your skills and experiences are massively in demand. How many times are you messaged on LinkedIn about jobs from recruiters? All the time no doubt. 

The most effective service I offer, is also the simplest for you. Dont wait to spot the perfect rile, let me go out and find it for you.

Rather than you searching online to find the agency that is advertising something you might be interested in. If you contact me, we arrange to talk and I listen to exactly what you want and why you want it. Because I am connected to all the key decisions makers in every Accountancy business in the Northwest, I can make confidential approaches, without sharing your name or employer, and identify a selection of the best opportunities that match exactly what you are looking for. You review and decide which we go forward with. It really is that simple.

You don’t have to deal with 3 or 4 different recruiters, who are each offering one or two opportunities each. There is no pressure selling working this way with us. We are not competition trying to convince you that the job we have got is perfect for you, you make that call.

So, although I must advertise a certain number of roles out there, to give you an idea of what I recruit for. But if you don’t find exactly what you are looking (which let’s be fair most job adverts and pretty hard to get a clear idea on), then reach out to me by applying.

Absolute discretion

Your CV or application is always absolutely confidential. By applying you are not losing control. The next stage of the process is for us to talk about what you want, what you don’t want, and for me to tell you whether I can help. If I can’t, I’ll be upfront about it. 

So if you are not entirely happy with what you have, and believ that you deserve better, then please get in touch and lets arrange to speak.
