Tax Technology DirectorJob description
Tax Technology Director
We are looking for a director with strong tax technology experience to join our London Tax Reporting & Strategy (TRS) practice. You would be working with the largest U.K. and multi-national groups to help clients' tax functions deliver and manage tax. Primarily this would be through the delivery of tax technology solutions but the role would be to solve clients' business problems and not purely to implement technology solutions. TRS combines technology consulting with, strategy, risk & governance, sourcing advisory and operating model advice to bring well rounded business integrated solutions.
TRS is a fast growing part of the PwC tax practice with fantastic growth and a strong, growing, pipeline of opportunities. As a result we are looking to build our team, especially in the tax technology consulting area, to meet the increasing demand from client's to help them deliver tax in a better way.
TRS is a global network and as such you will have the opportunity to work with a network of specialists and access the global methodologies and approaches across all taxes and countries. TRS also has strong links with PwC's Consulting and Risk Assurance lines of service and works closely with the systems and technology specialists in those global networks too.
The role and responsibilities will be to build a pipeline of opportunity, sell projects and deliver those projects. This would include helping clients to develop a tax technology strategy, convert that into a roadmap of activities, identify appropriate technologies to solve the issue and lead projects to implement that technology (using our implementation methodology) alongside other business integration activities such as redesigning the tax function as a result of the implementation, implementing appropriate governance over the technology's use within the organisation and improving processes that the technology interacts with.
You will have a wide range of experience in delivering end to end tax technology projects - as an advisor, as a tax technology vendor and in-house within an organisation's tax function. It is also important that you have an understanding of PwC's global technology tax compliance infrastructure and delivery model. A strong knowledge of tax provisioning technology will be key but additional experience of how automation, ERP systems and other specific tax technologies combine with people, process and data would also be crucial. Understanding the issues of poor data quality and systems that are not integrated will be a core part of the problem solving nature of this role.
As TRS is both technology and tax agnostic you should have knowledge of a broad range of technology vendors and across direct taxes, indirect taxes and Employment Taxes.
You will need strong interpersonal skills to be able to lead teams delivering end to end technology projects (from strategy through to delivery and beyond) but also to engage stakeholders, both within PwC (in tax and across line of service) and within clients' organisations (tax, finance and IT functions being key). The ability to use your influencing skills to be able to build a pipeline and revenue from client relationships will also be key.
Given the speed of growth and the desire to grow the team there is a fantastic opportunity for you to build a business within TRS Technology Consulting and a case for partner within a short timeframe.
What are the role requirements?:
You should have:
-experience across a range of tax technologies and how these integrate with other business operations (governance, process, people, data etc) and the ability to understand how these can be deployed to solve a range of clients' business problems
- experience across a range of taxes such as direct tax (reporting and compliance), indirect tax and Employment Tax
- experience arising from a varied background, including previous Big 4 adviser roles, time spent at a tax technology vendor and in an in-house technology role
- the ability to use your communication and interpersonal skills to lead teams, influence stakeholders and build revenue through client relationships
