New Opportunity - Focus into VAT Data Systems

Friday, 11 July 2014

VAT / Indirect Tax - Data Analyst, London

Central London - Vibrant part of town, £38,000 - £50,000 + Bens
Our client is a leading audit, tax and consulting firm with a truly global reach and high brand recognition.  Their indirect tax service line is continuing to develop tax technology offerings – providing IT based solutions to large-end clients on how best to extract, streamline and present tax and VAT  data from within an accounting system.  As a result, they are now looking to recruit a Data Analyst with strong IT / Excel / BI skills to join this already successful team.
Typical projects will be involved with assessing data sources within clients’ accounting systems, devising plans to extract data, writing VB scripts within audit software tools, transforming data from CSV files, and creating data sets for VAT reporting purposes.
To match the specialist skills of this role, you will have established experience as a data analyst, and will have very strong Excel / VBA / Macros skills, ideally with some experience of writing scripts within IT applications.  You may be based within a large international company, bank or financial services group, now looking to take your experience into a growing consulting market.  This role is based within a tax service line, however previous experience within tax is NOT essential.  In terms of IT skills, you will have significant experience of pivot tables, v-lookups, Excel formulas, use and writing of Macros, extracting data from databases, and ideally will have awareness of some audit tools.  Experience of using the product IDEA will be an advantage, but also not essential.
This is a great opportunity for either an IT based professional, data analyst, or finance systems analyst to move into a growing consulting team.
