Great entry role into tax technology - London

Wednesday, 27 March 2013

Corporate Tax Assistant - retrain into tax technology systems with growing software business in the UK
London / Thames Valley | £25,000 - £35,000 + Bonus + Bens
Are you an IT / Computer Sciences / Maths graduate with some initial corporate tax compliance or tax reporting experience?  Do you have a passion or strong interest in IT & love playing around with spreadsheets or MS Access? If yes, this is an excellent opportunity to combine your work experience to date and interests, and to focus your career into high-end tax data management systems with a well established company in the tax/IT systems market.
Due to growth of this software company in the UK and increased customer pipeline, a new trainee role has been devised to assist on client projects to implement large scale financial and tax based IT systems with large multinational groups.  Reporting to a project manager within a client services team, you will get client exposure to large brand names and international clients, and will work on detailed and often complex IT system configurations.  The necessary IT training will be provided by the company so that you will be up to speed with the IT know-how involved with client projects.  You will initially shadow a manager, working on various tasks relating to system databases, creating codes and running tests on data.  As you become more experienced and with further client exposure, you will gradually progress to be a project manager on client engagements.  A solid and progressive career path will be rewarded to those that develop well in the role.
You will be a graduate in Computer Sciences, IT or Mathematics, and with a logical thinking approach.  You will have started your career following graduation, most likely in tax / auditing / accounting either in a large-end company or with a practice firm of accountants.  You may be on track for qualifying at ACA or ACCA, or part-qualified. You are now unsure of your career ahead in tax or accounting, now interested in making a switch into the IT systems & software sector.
Aside from background and qualifications, you will be a good problem solver, able to deduce solutions in a logical way.
Please note – You do not need to be an IT program specialist to move into this role, although a keen interest and aptitude for IT applications (e.g. Excel / MS Access  / SQL  / database solutions) will be very beneficial. In addition, you will be confident with very strong communication and relationship skills, now looking to move and progress your career quickly into the high growth field of finance and tax automation.
