What is the Agile Talent Community? 
The Agile Talent Community is a network of contract professionals given the opportunity to work with our clients on a project-by-project basis and provided with strong support and development opportunities offered by Grant Thornton. You’ll get the freedom and advice to work in a way that suits you, that is compliant, and be able to choose the projects you take on, allowing you the independence to manage your time more effectively. The Agile Talent Community reflects the same values that sit at the heart of Grant Thornton: a commitment to diversity and inclusion, a client centric, quality driven ethos and a fundamental care for our people and doing what’s right, ahead of what’s easy. 


Everyday inclusion

Our ambition is that we are fully inclusive every day. This means that our working environment is one where everyone’s experience is important. Where people are treated fairly, and everyone has equal access to opportunities and where everyone feels safe to be themselves. We want to create a culture where it’s okay to ask questions and to understand more about different perspectives, so that we continuously educate and inform each other.


More about Tax  

Integrity. Quality. Reliability. These three words are at the heart of our approach. We take time to understand the issues that are important to our clients. From there we can support on every aspect of tax affairs.

For example, we can manage our clients overall exposure to tax, guide through complex UK and international systems, and help with everything from preparing returns to negotiating with authorities.

Clients will also gain commercial insights that help make better financial and business decisions. Whether we are dealing with an individual, small business, entrepreneur, or multinational corporation, we will ensure our clients receive the most effective tax solutions to support their goals.


Skills we’re looking for  

  • You will be a qualified Chartered Accountant and / or Tax Advisor (ACA / CA / CTA or equivalent) with post-qualification management experience in either practice or industry.
  • Your background will be in UK Corporate Tax, but Real Estate sector experience would be highly advantageous.  
  • You will have an excellent working knowledge of UK Corporate Tax legislation.
  • You will have a proven track record of managing a large portfolio of tax clients.
  • You will have demonstratable Business Development experience.
  • You will possess the ability to clearly communicate both verbally and in writing with stakeholders of all levels.



What’s in it for you 

  • Opportunity: Once you become part of the Agile Talent Community, you will be exposed to a variety of short-term or long-term projects within our Tax team enabling you to deliver exceptional service to our clients and help communities and businesses flourish. On top of that, you will be able to continue growing your skillset, building up your experience and network of business connections all whilst working alongside the Grant Thornton’s team of experts. This position also gives you the flexibility to work from anywhere in the UK with occasional travel required to our London office once the restrictions ease fully. 
  • Development: We believe our success is intrinsically linked to yours and will provide necessary training and support whether you’re on a project or not. From helping you navigate incoming regulation for freelancers to providing dedicated points of contact and offering training, we will always be there to support, advise and help you develop. 
  • Independence: A project focus lets you take on work as and when you want. The projects themselves will generally be full time, but this control allows you to create room around them for other priorities. We know you will need scope to pursue other interests whether personal or professional. The Agile Talent Community provides you that space without restriction.
