The former head of tax at Thames Water has joined Ernst & Young's Manchester operation - Helen Reid enlists as a senior manager.

Reid was recruited from Thames Water following four years of her career spent in the water sector. In her new role, Reid will be responsible for providing corporate tax advisory services to north-west quoted companies and large privately-owned businesses.

Her appointment is also part of Ernst & Young's ongoing investment in its UK utilities practice, and she will continue to be involved in the water industry through the firm's water network. Commenting on the appointment, Manchester head of tax Tracy Wood said: 'Helen Reid's specialist expertise in the tax advisory field will bring extra value to our clients across the gamut of industry sectors here in the North West.

'In addition, she is one of the UK's senior water specialists and will bring significant capability to the firm's fast-growing utilities water team, contributing to our UK credentials and helping us to increase our presence in the water sector.'

A graduate of Oxford University, Reid was born and raised in Burnley and lives in Manchester - she recently relocated to the North West from Reading.
