The business

My client is a market leading Group based in Manchester city centre.  Having achieved impressive growth over the last couple of years and consistently striving for improved performance, this is a truly entrepreneurial and dynamic organisation.

The opportunity

Due to this growth and exciting future plans coupled with an increased demand on group finance, an opportunity has arisen for a newly created, wide and varied role for a Group Tax Manager to bring Tax fully “in house”.

In addition you will also support other stakeholders including working closely alongside the FC of the business’ wholesale division.

The Group Tax Manager will be responsible for looking after all areas of UK Tax Compliance for the Group. This will include corporate tax, VAT and indirect tax, PAYE and employment tax, R&D Tax spend. Moreover, the successful individual will work closely with external advisors on Group-wide strategic projects.

Based in the city centre head office, the Group Tax Manager will be required to work two days per week from the Group’s London office – specific days can be agreed by candidate and client.

You will also be assisting with various ad hoc projects for the CFO and Group Financial Controller to support development of the group. These may include: UK indirect tax; due diligence and post-acquisition integration; preparing regulatory returns; supporting strategic projects.

The person

The ideal candidate will either be a Manager or Senior Manager coming straight from practice or an experienced Tax specialist currently working within industry with a desire to have a tangible impact on an exciting growth business.

We are looking for a truly exceptional candidate to partner with a strong, charismatic senior leadership team, supporting the Group FC and Group Finance function. As a minimum, the successful candidate will have ACA and/or CTA qualification plus a 2:1 degree, and be from a Top10 accounting practice.

With the company determined to continue on their current trajectory of growth, it is expected that the scope of responsibilities within this role will grow and therefore you will be expected to help shape the role going forward.
