Job Details

Your new firm
Your new firm is a well known and established Top 20 accountancy firm with a number of offices across the North West. A growing and ambitious accountancy practice, they have gone through a good period of growth in the last 3-6 years and have opened hub offices in a number of key and strategic locations across the North West. They have a strong reputation in the North West, supporting a range of SME/OMB style clients with a variety of different services lines including corporate finance, transaction services, taxation, audit, payroll and other general advisory services. The taxation service line is one of the stronger aspects of the firm with a strategic approach to growing in key locations in the North West. They boast an already large tax offering for a firm of their size with nearly 60 specialist advisers working in the North West, broken down into corporate tax, advisory, private client and VAT. As part of their plans to continue to grow, they are now looking to bring in a new Indirect Tax Director to support overall growth in indirect tax and delivery on the current workload.

Your new role
In your new role you will be working with a well established and stable indirect tax team of 6 who are spread across the North West. You will be responsible for assisting in the overall delivery of indirect tax work, assisting clients with a variety of different and complex indirect tax queries. The portfolio is a varied one where you will get exposure to a number of different owner-managed businesses as well as some large corporate businesses. You will be working closely with the current indirect tax partner assisting in the delivery of work whilst also getting involved with management of the team along with dealing with key stakeholders in the wider firm. You will also be involved in growing the indirect tax offering, assisting with varied forms of business development activities. This role has a clear succession plan for a Director or Senior Manager who wants to work towards being a partner within a fast-growing and ambitious accountancy firm.

What you'll need to succeed
To be successful in this role you need to come from a strong indirect tax background, having worked with similar-style clients with a UK-based accountancy firm. You need to be confident assisting with the delivery of indirect tax queries whilst also being able to manage/run a team and helping generate work. Ideally, you will come from a strong accountancy firm in the UK, possibly a Mid-Tier accountancy firm or a Big 4/Top 10/Top 20 firm. This opportunity could be suited to someone who is looking to step up from Senior Manager or a Director who wants to progress into becoming a Indirect Tax Partner.

What you'll get in return
In return for this role, you will receive a competitive salary depending on what level you join the firm, with salary levels being regularly benchmarked against other large accountancy firms in the North West. As well as a competitive salary, you will also receive a group pension plan, private healthcare contributions, extra holidays and a bonus entitlement.
