About the role

We are looking for a Tax Partner to join our new Cheltenham office as we commence the next phase of our ambitious growth plans.

We’ve just been ranked fifth in the Accountancy Age Mid-Tier Power Rankings – and we’re the highest ranked firm in the South West. This comes on the back of nearly 20% growth last year, several award wins, and record-breaking recruitment taking our headcount to nearly 40 partners and 500 people.

But we’re not stopping there. We’ve got ambitious plans to double the size of our business over the next few years. Core to this growth is the recent integration of another business to form a new Cheltenham office – strengthening our footprint in the South West and so we’re now looking to expand further in the Three Counties region.

We are keen to hear from talented accountants who have a proven track record of operating within Corporate Tax.  The role would provide an opportunity to work with a variety of clients, including entrepreneurial private businesses, venture capital backed companies and corporate groups across a range of sectors, including fast growth, technology, and encompassing household names.

As a key member of our Cheltenham leadership team, you will play a significant role in the development of our client base across Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, and wider South-West region.

You will be a strategic thinker who can lead and develop teams and be seen to deliver a trusted advisor service to a wide range of clients.

This is a great opportunity for someone who is looking to play a leading role in the development and growth of our practice and will be working with a supportive partner group who will support them to help grow the business.

What’s more, you will be part of a rapidly expanding Top 30 firm that values it people and offers a fantastic working environment.

Your role will combine key client service delivery, people management and business development responsibilities.

Day to day responsibilities will include:

  • Managing and growing our Tax client base – including developing existing client relationships and winning new clients
  • Playing a pivotal role in Business Development activities and looking to build/retain a good network of local and/or specialist contacts to contribute to our growth
  • Contributing to People Management in our Tax teams – including recruiting team members, coaching our people and succession planning

About you

  • Appropriately qualified with experience of working within Tax
  • A strong business developer who is keen to build contacts and network within the local business community
  • Strong technical skills and experience
  • An excellent communicator with strong interpersonal skills who can influence at all levels
  • A strong People Manager who enjoys building and developing a team
