Job Description

Tax Assistant / Manager

Our client is looking to fulfil a new role within their growing tax department. Ideally, they would be looking for a candidate with tax experience that is ATT or CTA qualified, but for the right person they would consider someone with accounting experience and a keen interest in specialising in tax work.

Responsibilities / duties

  • Supporting the Tax Partner with technical research and preparing tax advice direct to clients in all areas of taxation
  • Supporting the Tax Partner in dealing with internal technical tax queries for Partners and Managers, encompassing all areas of taxation
  • Working with the Tax Partner to develop tax planning ideas and provide proactive advice, including technical updates to both partners/staff and clients
  • Assisting with the preparation of Self-Assessment Tax Returns for a portfolio of clients
  • Assisting the Tax Partner with the preparation of US Federal Tax Returns


  • Experience in working in mixed UK taxation (private client and corporate clients) is preferred, but candidates with a private client bias who are willing to develop corporate tax experience will be considered
  • Tax advisory experience is desirable but not essential as training can be provided in this area
  • It is experience that is important, so although CTA qualified candidates will be preferred, candidates with other tax or accounting qualification, as well as those qualified by experience, will be considered
  • Must be willing (and able) to undertake detailed technical research, work to deadlines and get involved in wide ranging issues
  • Experience in US tax is desirable but not essential

What’s on offer?

  • The opportunity to progress your career in taxation at this supportive and friendly firm
  • The opportunity to get involved with varied and interesting tax advisory work
  • The rare opportunity to develop broad UK tax expertise and gain US tax experience (full training and support will be provided for the latter)

Learning and Development is an integral part of this practice. They aim to provide the best support to their people to ensure that their development and knowledge is at the best level possible through professional qualifications, in-house training and self-development.

Hours: Full time (38.75 hours per week)
