An excellent new opportunity has arisen at a university in the North West for an experienced Tax Manager to provide an internal tax advisory service to the organisation.
As the technical expert, with the scope to cover the whole group organisation, you will ensure that all strategic and operational decisions are based on clear tax advice and supported by robust processes and monitoring systems. This will include the development of taxation policies and strategies to optimise the group’s tax position, the provision of advice, guidance and training to staff, plus the submission of all necessary tax returns and schedules, ensuring compliance with all taxation legislation and regulation.
Holder of a professional tax qualification, with substantial experience of the UK tax regime, you will need to be able to demonstrate experience of responsibility in taxation and, importantly, of leading relationships with tax advisors. Engagement at all levels across the university and the establishment of effective working relationships will be essential in order to fully gain an understanding of its operations and to provide appropriate advice, so excellent communication skills will be important. Furthermore, you will need to show the ability to influence, challenge and implement change within a changing environment.
This is an excellent opportunity for a self-motivated professional with a positive attitude to their work to make a real difference with the application of their skills and enthusiasm.
