IAS / IFRS Tax Accounting experience? Please read on

Tuesday, 7 August 2012

Very keen to speak with an experienced tax professional with strong insight and experience in tax accounting, particularly as it relates to large-end multinationals. This may appeal to either someone in a Big 4 / practice firm, now looking to step into a very different and entrepreneurial role, or someone from tax in industry now looking to exploit their experience in a technology business.

Please read our job profile below:

Tax Accounting experience? Switch career focus into tax systems
London | £55,000 - £75,000 + Bens, depending on experience

Our client is a top ranked software solutions provider in the finance software sector, operating in North America and across the EMEA region.  They offer a range of solutions to the corporate market for financial reporting and consolidation, as well as a high specification tax reporting solution.

A new role has been created for a tax accounting specialist to join the UK / London team as a Tax Product Specialist to assist with executing sales of the solution to corporate clients.

Reporting to a Director of the business, this role will:

Perform product demonstrations to new prospects, customers and business partners
Participate in calls to prospects to identify their business requirements and map out their current tax reporting process (under IAS / IFRS guidelines) and IT systems employed

Discuss a potential product solution to tax accounting scenarios and processes

Contribute to enhancements in demonstrations

Attending / presenting at user conferences and trade shows

In the future, and with more experience working on this type of software solution, this role will lead into providing guidance on the development of the product, especially on IFRS functionality and to assist with design discussions for client tax solutions.

To match the challenges of this specialist role, you will have a combination of the following within your background:

Qualified accountant (ACA / ACCA) with minimum 3 years of tax accounting experience in the large multinational sector

Knowledge of the tax accounting and regulatory framework of IFRS (IAS 12) and to a lesser extent US GAAP tax accounting

An ability to communicate clearly and with confidence to senior tax and finance professionals

Good problem solving skills

A genuine interest in technology, software and business systems

This role will cover the EMEA region, and will involve regular travel (with trips lasting 1-2 days each time) to locations within the UK and across Europe, and therefore a flexibility approach to travel and location will be required.

This role is open for those either looking to make a move within the permanent job market sector, or for someone who has been working in recent tax accounting contracts in commerce / industry / banking and now looking for a next interim / contract role which could then develop into a more permanent role.

All necessary IT training on the product will be provided in the early stages of this role.  This is an excellent and unique opportunity to switch your tax or tax accounting career into the technology sector and develop quickly in this growing and thriving software business.

For more information, or for a confidential discussion, please contact Simon Godley on 0870 4605646 or email:
