Are you a Corporate Tax Manager with strong experience on tax compliance and reporting? Do you have an interest in the IT systems and tax data side of your role?  If you are saying Yes to this, then we have an excellent opportunity for you to transition your career into a high calibre tax technology role in the London market with a leading business.Our client is a specialised and truly international technology business, and with a substantial footprint  in the tax technology field in the UK & Europe.  Their client-facing software solutions team now seeks a corporate tax manager / senior manager to move into a new career direction and work with clients and new opportunities to educate and present to them on the benefits of having improved corporate tax software.

Key aspects of the role includes:
  • Representing the software products and solutions to current and potential clients.

In terms of your background, you will already have a corporate tax specialism, and will have a very strong grasp of accounting for tax and tax within statutory accounts.  It is likely that you are now looking for something different, a move away from the cyclical tax compliance cycle, and into more of a client facing solutions / technical sales role. In addition you will be IT-savvy, a logical thinker, and enjoy playing around with Excel and other IT applications to improve a process.  Experience with tax compliance software in conjunction with other applications e.g. Excel will be highly valuable for success in the role.
