Corporate Tax Consultant - focus into tax technology, London
Have you had an initial training in Corporate Tax compliance but unsure of the next step? Do you have a strong interest in technology / computing / IT? Possibly you graduated in IT / Computer Sciences / Maths or Sciences before a move into tax, and now eager to use that knowledge in your career?
If yes, this is an excellent opportunity to combine your work experience to date and interest in technology, and to focus your career into high-end tax technology systems with a leading consulting firm.
You will join a well established and progressive team within a top tier advisory firm. You will initially work closely to assist Managers and Senior Managers on client-led projects, either working in the firm's London office or at a client location. Projects will involve analysis and information gathering on clients' accounting and tax systems, understanding business processes within the ERP / SAP framework, and working on implementation projects to upgrade clients' tax systems. You will also assist on proposals to clients on how they can best improve or enhance their tax systems.
Product technologies will include tax accounting solutions, ERP Add-ons, tax compliance software, tax engines and work flow systems.
You will be a graduate ideally in one of Computer Sciences, IT, Mathematics or Science subject, and with a logical thinking approach. You will have started your career following graduation, most likely in tax / auditing / accounting either in a large-end company or with a practice firm of accountants. You may be on track for qualifying at ACA or ACCA, or part-qualified. You are now unsure of your career ahead in corporate tax, now interested in making a switch into tax based technology solutions. Aside from background and qualifications, you will be a good problem solver, able to deduce solutions in a logical way, and have a strong understanding of how technology is used / can be used in the tax compliance field.
Please note - You do not need to be an IT program specialist to move into this role, although a keen interest and aptitude for IT applications (e.g. Excel / MS Access / SQL / database solutions) will be very beneficial. In addition, you will be confident with very strong communication and relationship skills, now looking to move and progress your career quickly into the high growth field of finance and tax technology within the large-end corporate sector.
