We are leading experts at offering advice on personal and corporate tax affairs for Private Businesses, their owners and Private Clients.

We are looking for a Senior Associate to join our Private Business Private Client team, based in London. The Private Client and Private Business team in London is an area of significant investment and growth for PwC. We have a talented and diverse team of tax experts focused entirely on this market, with a shared ambition to give our clients the best advice and service possible.

Our clients range from significant family businesses of FTSE equivalent size, to scale-up and fast growth companies and everything in between. We work across all industries sectors. Our private client business advises HNWIs, landed estates, trusts, international and UK clients, family offices and business owners. We have a combined team that joins up all the dots, such that we are really strong where the business and individual’s interests meet.

You will be encouraged to shape and actively manage your career and will be actively supported in the area(s) of the Private Business market within which you work or specialise.

As a tax expert you will be responsible for delivering exceptional client service, strong technical know-how and tailored solutions to meet the personal and commercial objectives of your clients. You will balance an active portfolio of clients and manage multiple project-based assignments, while taking a lead role in managing client relationships.

As Senior Associate in this team you will be involved in

  • Tax planning projects and ad-hoc advisory work, often with international aspects.

  • Working with others on technical research and report writing - including original research (review and interpretation of the legislation) as well as tailoring specific existing planning ideas to meet an individual client's needs and circumstances.

  • Being involved in the support and development of junior staff - sharing knowledge and expertise through team working and actively managing individual work-streams.

  • Taking a role in managing the client relationship - managing and controlling deliverables and deadlines, handling day to day queries and establishing role as the trusted/primary point of contact.

  • Working directly to Managers and Senior Managers in the team to support them in managing client relationships.

  • Assisting with the review of personal tax returns linked with your own client allocation, whilst considering whether any tax planning opportunities arise.

  • Working across the other lines of service within LRT (e.g. Private Business, Private Equity) to build relationships and personal networks around the Firm and to help with knowledge sharing and providing a comprehensive service to our clients.

Essential skills

  • You should be ACA or CTA qualified.

  • The successful candidate will have strong UK tax knowledge either through experience or through one of the above exam qualifications.

  • Experience of managing a portfolio of clients and leading client relationships.
