In relation to advisory, you will be involved in a variety of projects, for example, M&A and due diligence, R&D, trade and asset transfers, and (re-)structuring. You will also handle regular ad-hoc queries from a number of business units.

What you'll need to succeed
The successful applicant will have strong experience of corporate tax compliance, which they have gained in a Chartered Accountancy firm or in-house Tax Team for in excess of 2 years. Additional knowledge of VAT will be beneficial and you will ideally be ATT qualified or CTA/ACCA/ICAS/ICAEW part-qualified or qualified. You will have have excellent communication skills with the proven ability to work to strict deadlines.

What you'll get in return
In addition to receiving a salary of between £25,000 and £32,000 (with some potential to go beyond for the right individual) and working for an instantly recognisable organisation, you will have a non-contributory pension of 10% and annual bonus.
