Job Summary: The role involves supporting the product advisory tax team in advising various lines of business on tax-related risks. This will involve developing knowledge of worldwide tax regimes applicable to the various lines of business (both tax technical and practical), communicating tax risks succinctly and clearly to non-tax colleagues and escalating risks internally within the team as appropriate. The successful candidate must be able to apply a commercial (yet technically sound) approach to tax risk management. The successful candidate will also work with external tax advisors, as well as partnering internally with global Corporate Tax colleagues, including colleagues covering VAT.

Initially the role will be to support the Custody business which will involve reviewing and communicating information on tax treaties and market information and responding to technical queries from the business.

There will be good on-the-job training in a supportive environment where a positive team approach provides the benefits of an excellent working environment and very good opportunities for technical and personal development. The successful candidate will also gain exposure to multiple JPMorgan lines of business and products.

The role provides for an excellent introduction to how a global bank like JPMorgan operates and the numerous products and services offered.

Essential Skills / Experience: The successful candidate must speak excellent English and must be professionally qualified (e.g. tax, law, accounting etc) and must have worked in the past, or currently be working, providing tax advice in a law or accounting firm. It is essential for the candidate to like dealing with people, be of flexible disposition and that they be a good team player. He/she should be capable of communicating the tax issues to non tax personnel and must be interested in learning the commercial context in which the tax advice is being given. The successful candidate must be capable of working under pressure in a commercial environment while not compromising technical or ethical standards. A willingness to approach new and unfamiliar issues in an analytical and logical manner is required.

Desirable Skills / Experience: A UK tax background is not a requirement. A language other than English would be helpful but not necessary for the right candidate.

Randstad Financial & Professional encourage applications from individuals of all ages & backgrounds. Appointment will be made on merit alone but candidates must be able to demonstrate their ability to work in the UK.
