Come and be part of a forward thinking and ambitious business that offers a refreshingly different culture to other accountancy practices. We will offer you an excellent work/life balance as well as the opportunity to continually develop your career.

Responsible for providing a comprehensive tax compliance service to a broad portfolio of clients, this role will allow you to build advisory experience whilst utilising the strong tax compliance experience you will have already gained.

  • The ATT qualification (or equivalent). Being CTA qualified or part qualified, or looking to study towards the CTA qualification would be advantageous

  • Tax compliance experience gained from within a mixed tax and/or personal tax environment

  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills that enable you to build rapport with people at various levels

  • Strong organisational skills and the ability to work well under pressure

We recognise the importance of offering our employees flexibility in how they work.  This may include working from home some of the time or flexible working arrangements such as part time working to accommodate parent and carer responsibilities, further studies and hobbies.

We are a responsible employer - committed to welcoming new people into an inclusive working environment, where everyone is given equal opportunity to reach their full potential.

Our ‘One Firm’ approach aims to provide a culture where our people are valued and treated fairly with respect, but also one where our differences are understood and celebrated.

We hope that these objectives will attract you to our business as an employer of choice.
