Job Description

Private Client Tax Senior Accountant/Assistant Manager (Huntingdon)

Competitive Salary + great benefits package

Are you an experienced tax professional with a passion for providing excellent client service? Our client is looking for a Tax Senior/Assistant Manager to join their growing Private Client Tax team in Huntingdon.

You will be working with a diverse portfolio of high net worth individuals and families, business owners, doctors, professional practices, company directors, land and property owners, entrepreneurs, retirees, and family trusts. This means you will have the opportunity to work on a broad range of compliance matters, including the preparation of tax returns for individuals, partnerships, trusts, and estates. You will also be responsible for the completion of Capital Gains Tax returns, Inheritance Tax accounts, and Trust Registration filing requirements.

The ideal candidate should have a minimum of 3 years recent practice experience within a personal tax role, or a mixed role including personal tax. You should hold or be studying towards the CTA qualification (or be qualified by experience). ICAEW, ACCA, and/or STEP qualifications would be beneficial.

In addition, you will have experience of successfully managing a portfolio of private clients alongside reviewing self-assessment tax returns completed by other staff. Previous exposure to all aspects of Personal Tax compliance work within a professional services environment is essential, including Capital Gains Tax planning, Remuneration planning, IR35, Trusts/Inheritance Tax, and Benefits in Kind/P11Ds.

We are looking for someone who is accomplished in managing competing deadlines and client expectations, skilled in controlling budgets and billing, and able to work autonomously whilst also building/developing a team. Previous experience of supervising and reviewing the work of more junior staff would be useful.

Excellent oral and written communication skills are essential to facilitate effective client contact and present complex findings in an accessible manner. A thorough attitude and an expert eye for detail are also required.

The role can be combined with an element of home-working under the firm’s agile working policy, and you will be actively involved in business development activities.

If you are passionate about providing excellent client service, have a strong technical expertise in personal tax, and are looking for an interesting and varied role with opportunities for personal and career development, then we would love to hear from you. Please contact Haidee at ProTalent
