Great new opportunity - VAT Systems Manager role, London

Friday, 9 May 2014

Leading and expanding business systems and technology firm seeks a leadership VAT compliance / process / systems specialist to lead a team on client delivery projects, delivering VAT software solutions to large-end multinationals:

VAT Systems Implementations Manager
London | £60,000 - £75,000 + Bonus + Bens

Our client is a specialised and truly international technology business, and with a substantial footprint in the tax field.  It is a highly successful operation with a long term history, and they now seek a forward thinking VAT / indirect tax specialist with strong IT / tax systems knowledge and experience to take a lead client facing Manager role.  Leading a team of three Consultants, this role will be based in London with some travel when required, although not extensive.

Key activities and responsibilities will be:
  • Providing a leadership consulting role with clients (multinational companies) on indirect tax systems projects, and managing the delivery of VAT compliance software solutions
  • Leading on project planning and deciding on outline and approach
  • Being a VAT subject matter expert to provide technical guidance on projects
  • Managing a small team of professionals on client services and support
  • Being responsible for project costs, financial budgets and resourcing of client projects
In order to match with the requirements of this role, you will have substantial experience to date in the VAT field, and ideally with experience within the Indirect Tax determination and VAT compliance and reporting areas.  You may have developed this experience within a Big 4 / consulting firm or operating within an in-house tax / VAT operations team in industry.  If in industry, you will be recognised as an indirect tax specialist within the company, being a large multinational / FTSE / European HQ group. VAT compliance and process experience gained within a shared services environment of a multinational group would be highly valuable.  It is a strong possibility you have a background in EU VAT compliance, now with additional experience of technologies and software for VAT / indirect tax compliance.  Also a knowledge and strong appreciation of how VAT data works within a SAP / Oracle system and use of Excel for data extraction would be a strong advantage to success in the role.

This is a role seeking a proactive and professional VAT based compliance / process specialist, and NOT requiring an IT programmer.  This is an excellent opportunity to progress a VAT technology career within a structured environment, and to have a high visibility leadership role within an international technology business.
