Job Description

Indirect Tax Specialist Contract Job, Financial Services, Edinburgh, £generous-day-rate

Your new company
Hays is proud to be partnered with a premium, global Financial Services organisation with over 15 thousand employees in order to recruit for a long-term, interim Indirect Tax specialist within the Edinburgh team. Providing extensive financial solutions and products, this organisation is instantly recognisable and you will be joining a growing yet experienced wider Finance Team made up of various areas such as Treasury, Corporate Accounting, Regulatory Reporting and Tax Operations, inclusive of a large Indirect Tax Team. This is initially a contract role, provisionally until April 2022, however there may be the opportunity for extension and/or to be considered for a permanent post.

Your new role
Sitting within a global Tax Group, you will contribute to the successful management of compliance and accounting affairs for entities across European, the Middle East and Africa whilst assisting project work as required. This will involve preparation, completion and filing of indirect tax returns, and ensuring prompt payment of indirect tax liabilities and management of indirect tax refunds. You will complete indirect tax accounting including posting adjustments to the general ledger, ensuring prompt resolution of any accounting issues, and completing monthly balance sheet reconciliations. Further to this, you will manage queries from various business lines, stakeholders and external advisers. You will also aid the development and enhancement of processes and controls, supporting tax technology initiatives.

What you'll need to succeed
You will have a proven knowledge of indirect tax compliance delivery, ideally across EMEA. You will be highly organised with strong attention to detail and excellent communication skills. You will feel comfortable utilising Excel, and experience of Oracle is advantageous but not essential. Being CA/ACA/ACCA/ATT/CTA qualified or exam-qualified will enhance your application.

What you'll get in return
In addition to working for a market leading and highly reputable Financial Services organisation with a global reach, you will receive a generous day rate of up to £400. You will gain invaluable experience during this long-term interim position.
