Corporate Tax Accountant - Change Career Direction

Monday, 16 May 2011

If you are an in-house Tax Accountant in the UK or Europe, or tax compliance specialist looking for a route out into a more IT based career, then you should read on and find out more about the following opportunity:

Tax Accountant - re-skill into Tax-IT Systems
London £40,000 - £60,000 + Bens
High calibre software business, with continued growth success in the UK, now seeks to recruit a tax systems implementations adviser. This is a great opportunity for either a Tax Accountant or tax reporting specialist to transfer those skills into an IT role, and to learn and train into additional new skills in the IT / ERP / accounting systems market. This role will be involved with the business analysis and design phase of a tax reporting solution for large corporate clients, and then working on the roll-out and configuration of the software with a clients' ERP / accounting systems, system testing through to go-live of the project. The company will provide the specialist IT training required to carry out this role, although strong Excel skills (pivot tables, knowledge of macros) and a grasp of database construction (e.g. MS Access / VBA) will be a strong advantage, although not essential. We are mostly looking to consider bright, technically-minded and IT-savvy corporate tax accountants or tax compliance professionals with a strong academic track record, ideally qualified (ACA / ACCA / ATT / CTA), now looking to move away from practice or industry and refocus in the high growth field of tax-IT systems. In addition, you will have good client handling skills, able to manage and exceed customer expectations, and be flexible to travel to client locations (London / rest of UK / occasionally into Europe).
