Indirect Tax Engines - great entry level role

Wednesday, 6 November 2013

We are currently working on recruitment exercise for this interesting VAT tax engines role with a large consulting firm.  I've tried to simplify the wording in the description of this job posting as often it can sound more complicated that it is:

Consultant - Indirect Tax Engines
London | £30,000 - £60,000 + Bens, depending on experience level to date


Our client is a leading professional services firm globally.  An excellent career opportunity has emerged within their growing tax technology services team, with a new role focused on indirect tax systems applicable to large multinational groups.  The role is centred in London, however we are looking to consider candidates from other parts of Europe on the basis that they are flexible to do regular travel.
We are generally looking for candidates with backgrounds in either indirect tax compliance (of a large international group) or ERP / SAP based implementations experience (involving VAT elements) or a combination of these areas.  IT programming skills are not required, however a good appreciation of IT-finance systems used in international groups will prove valuable.
Key aspects of the role include:
  • Analysing and reviewing existing VAT/indirect tax processes, controls and systems in place within client organisations
  • Identifying areas in which the above could be improved, and then working through the proposal stages with the client and supporting the development of business cases for upgrading VAT systems
  • Working on implementation projects of indirect tax calculation systems, in particular implementation projects of bolt-on systems (such as Vertex or Thomson Reuters Onesource tax determination solutions)
To be considered for this role, you will have a combination of two or more of the following:
  • A strong graduate / masters degree – either accounting or finance related, IT or a science subject
  • Experience within the indirect tax function of a FSS (finance shared service centre), either UK based or in other European country
  • Experience of upgrading / modifying SAP to work better for VAT codes and calculations; experience of SAP FICO or SD-MM modules an advantage
  • Experience of implementing either Vertex or Thomson Reuters Onesource indirect tax software
This role is ideal for someone with foundational indirect tax compliance and process experience, and with some experience of the IT systems in this sector, now looking to boost their career within a market leading consulting team.

For a further discussion about this, please either call Simon Godley on 0870 46 056 46 or email: sg@talentpoolselection.com
