Move into tax technology?

Friday, 2 September 2011

I'm recruiting for an interesting & progressive opportunity within a Big 4 firm tax technology team, based in London. This role would be good for an in-house Tax Accountant or Tax Manager looking for a move into something quite different, possibly more of a project/consulting role? They may currently be working for a large in-house tax team with a large group / Plc type company, with a focus on tax accounting/compliance, but can't quite see the next step up or where it may lead?

Tax Manager - Tax Compliance Solutions
London. £50,000 - £70,000 + Car + Bens

High profile advisory firm in London is now looking to grow further their successful tax technology consulting practice, and now seeks to recruit at Manager levels into this UK / Europe practice. Based in London, with travel around Europe, this client facing project based role will mostly work with large FTSE / European HQ / Global 500 type clients, and will work on projects to analyse tax risk and tax reporting process, and to subsequently implement and roll-out bespoke tax systems and technology solutions for the client. Projects will cover a range of client issues, focusing on corporate tax process and compliance, iXBRL systems, analysis and selection of tax accounting solutions. Potential candidates will have a strong grounding in corporate tax compliance / tax accounting, preferably qualified ACA / ACCA / CTA, and will currently be based with a large tax team in industry or banking, or in a Big 4 corporate tax division, now looking for a new career direction. Knowledge and experience of using or implementing / improving tax software systems will be a major advantage, and in particular strong skills on Excel manipulation and CT compliance software will be added advantage. An awareness of tax accounting principles under UK / US GAAP / IFRS will be highly valuable to success in this opportunity, as well as strong client interaction skills and the ability and confidence to develop more business when appropriate. This is a growing team, and fast track promotion prospects are available for high achievers.
