We are looking to talk to people in the tax accounting & compliance field, either practice side or in-house tax / shared service centre environment.  Manager level, now looking to develop career further in the tax systems market:

This is a great opportunity to work for a leading global brand, and a truly international group in the business services sector.
You will join an established team that works with large-end corporate clients to provide them with sophisticated software that automates the tax accounting function.  The system is used by tax, finance and accounting      professionals across the corporate group, and can operate across many countries.  After a short period, you would be expected to manage implementations projects as well as managing client relationships, and so this role   requires technical, professional and strong communication skills.
As a Manager in the team,  this role will involve some key areas of activity:
  • Meet with client’s tax department management to determine business and technical needs.
  • Recommend optimal system configuration and business processes based on industry best practices.
  • Prepare and present implementation plans for customer approval.
  • Manage and execute implementation plan including directing staff resources (both internal and external), evaluating results, creating documentation of newly created processes and managing overall engagement.
  • Train client users on use of software solutions and business practices.
We are flexible in terms of looking at candidates from a wide range of tax, finance and IT backgrounds, however it is highly preferred that you will have had a corporate tax training (coupled with ACA / ICAS exams) from a large accounting firm.  You will have a strong grounding in the principles of tax accounting, and will understand well the procedures of preparing tax accounts under UK Gaap and IFRS.  It is expected that you will have progressed in the firm to minimum of Assistant Manager level or into Manager grade.  In addition, you will have a strong interest in technology, and will enjoy constructing and using complex Excel workbooks to help with tax calculations.
Any direct experience of implementing tax accounting or tax compliance software within a finance function will be a distinct advantage.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone with practical tax accounting experience to use this within a business technology capacity and to get noticed quickly within a growing area of the tax automation market.
