Job Details

VAT Manager, VAT Assistant Manager, Indirect Tax Consultant, Indirect Tax Manager, £48,000 - £58,500, Bristol

Your new company

This leading chartered accountancy firm, based in Bristol, has undergone a large and sustained period of positive growth, which is expected to continue, and the position has evolved as a result of organic expansion, with the need to invest in the necessary experts. You will be entering at a pivotal point in your career, with the opportunity to carve out a niche for yourself within this well recognised team and organisation.

Your new role

Working directly with partners/directors and teams across the business to achieve VAT compliance, with an ever increasing focus on advisory project work, you will carve an important place within the Bristol team as VAT Manager. The job will be diversified, with an advising focus, as well as some compliance and some client-facing work. As a crucial addition to this successful team, you will also benefit from a clear career path. Delivering VAT advisory solutions across property on transactions, as well as movements of assets with accompanying VAT advice, are just a few instances of the work you'll be doing here. Other examples include Brexit-related concerns, which are on the rise, including guidance on EU supply chain analyses and import/export scenarios, as well as a growing number of clients diversifying into various industries requiring VAT assistance and advice. You will have the ability to carve out a crucial role for yourself in this team and firm.

What you'll need to succeed

You'll have CTA/ACCA/ACA qualifications, or you'll have a lot of expertise with VAT from your previous jobs. Your experience could range from a Top Tier firm to a Mid Tier/Top 50 firm, as well as an independent firm. Alternatively, you may have worked in the sector and been exposed to a variety of VAT challenges, or you may have worked for HMRC as a VAT specialist and wish to transfer your talents to the accounting profession. You are likely to have progressed to the level of VAT Manager and are looking for a new opportunity to advance and build your career.

What you'll get in return

Clear progression on offer with superb career opportunities supported with personal and technical advancement. £48,000 - £58,500 dependent on the background experience and level of the right professional, plus benefits and additional bonus schemes.
