Having seen excellent growth over the last year, this Top 50 accountancy practice based in Central London employs a streamlined approach to their work to provide a tailor-made level of service to its client base. Their tax department has a diverse client base and includes celebrated individuals within the world of tax practice. The roster of 20 Partners, drawn from an eclectic mix of firms from boutiques to Big 4, and emphasis on their outstanding record of staff retention, prove the firm's commitment to career enhancing investment in their employees. Open plan offices, replete with free fruit, uphold a work-space that is both comfortable and professional, and the offices are located in a hot-spot of famous historical landmarks, eateries, and green space.

Your new role

* Reviewing and commenting on corporate tax returns prepared by the GP team

What you'll need to succeed

You will be a CTA qualified individual with a detailed understanding of Corporate Taxation issues, within both an advisory and compliance capacity. You will have previously managed a portfolio of clients and have proven experience of excelling both as an individual and as part of a team. You will be working with senior members of staff, providing assistance when needed in a fast-paced environment where good communication is essential, along with excellent time and deadline management skills. As this role deals with wider corporate issues spanning a diverse portfolio of clients, significant VAT knowledge will also be required to perform around a third of the role.

What you'll get in return

You will be working for a firm which highly values both their staff and their clients. The attractive salary comes alongside a lucrative benefits package, including a competitive holiday pay and interest free season ticket loans. As a Manager, you will have access to death in service (3x annual salary), a commission scheme for referrals at 15%, and the ability to buy and sell up to 5 days of holiday. Furthermore, you will enjoy private medical insurance and a Buba cash plan for your spouse and children. More important is the quality of the role: you will gain exposure to a rich and diverse client base across many exciting industries, which are ever-changing and guaranteed not to be predictable.
