Job Description

Employment Tax Specialist, CA Firm, Edinburgh, £dependent-on-experience

Your new company
A top 20 CA firm with several offices across Scotland is partnered with Hays in order to recruit an Employment Tax Specialist. From sole operators to major global groups, the firm tailors its support to businesses whether they focus on domestic or international ambitions. By listening, understanding and building relationships, they are trusted and reputable advisers across a variety of service lines. The firm encourages and facilitates creative and innovative approaches to deliver the required results across Audit, Accounts, Payroll, Business Advisory, Corporate Finance and Tax. In line with this, they have experienced sustained growth, made a number of high-profile appointments and pursue novel operational approaches. A particular example of this is the Employment Tax Team. Given the increased demand for their employment consultancy services, the firm is looking to make a couple of additions to this successful, specialist department.

Your new role
You will operate within a growing department of Employment Tax Specialists, managing and/or supporting employment tax consultancy projects for a diverse range of clients across industries such as sport, food & drink, manufacturing, oil & gas and financial services. Technical work will cover a variety of areas, such as employment status, IR35, PAYE, Benefits and Expenses, National Minimum Wage, Construction Industry Scheme, termination payments, tax due diligence and HMRC investigations among other things. You will also provide workshops for clients and attend meetings regularly, supporting the development of business. Further to this, you will support the development of more junior staff members, reviewing work and delivering internal training.

What you'll need to succeed
You will have a strong technical knowledge of Employment Tax with the confidence to deliver this to clients in a one-to-one or group setting. Ideally, you will hold a relevant qualification, such as CA, ACA, ACCA, ATT and/or CTA. You will be a dynamic individual with strong motivation and the ability to work well in a small team as part of a large firm.

What you'll get in return
In addition to joining a leading CA firm with an exceptional reputation, you will receive a competitive salary. You will also receive a range of benefits, including a pension scheme, 34 days annual leave, the ability to gain/buy/sell further holidays, life insurance, and discretionary and introductory bonuses. Remote and flexible working arrangements are also available during normal circumstances. Presently, it is entirely home-based.
