In-House Tax systems - new opportunity

Monday, 16 January 2012

Currently working on a somewhat rare opportunity - this role is to join a very large, high profile international corporate to focus on tax system and tax software changes and improvements from a group tax perspective. Looking for someone at newly / recently qualified level with an equally hard-to-find mix of tax & IT skills. However great role for someone looking to progress and build a career in this sub-sector of the tax market.

Tax Technology Adviser - Large Corporate
London | £40,000 - £50,000 + excellent benefits and bonus

New high calibre opportunity has arisen for an IT-tax systems / software adviser to operate within the group tax function of this FTSE 100 group, based in London. Reporting to a Director, this is a rare opportunity to focus on the tax systems and processes within a very international business, and to have exposure to a diverse range of tax system enhancements and implementations. Projects may include workflow and document management systems, devising processes to reduce tax risk, tax provisions & forecasting tools, and other ad-hoc system improvements. In terms of your background, ideally you will be tax trained (corporate tax or other tax area with a large firm), preferably having completed a tax or accounting qualification. You will be at the newly / recently qualified level, now looking for a change of direction or looking to sub-specialise. You may have worked with a variety of tax software products, however experience around corporate tax software will be beneficial. In addition, candidates with a wider appreciation of business / finance systems (e.g. Hyperion, SAP/Oracle Financials, Excel VBA, Access) will have a strong advantage in this systems-centric role. This will be a very visible role in the company, and will involve regular liaison with senior management in the business, tax, legal and IT teams. You will therefore need to demonstrate strong team work skills and confident communication skills with senior colleagues or client contacts. This is a very attractive opportunity in the commercial market, and one which would strongly propel a career in tax systems and software.
