The BBC’s employment tax landscape is complex, requiring expert assessment and judgement of a range of high profile circumstances including advising on appropriate arrangements for on-air talent and artists and contributors.
We’re now seeking an Employment Tax Specialist to join the BBC, on a 6 month fixed term basis, to work closely with and support the Finance Business Partner for Employment Tax.
Providing support to the Employment Tax Business Partner with a particular emphasis on Employment Status, IR35 and Off-Payroll working, to include tax technical and data analysis to support employment tax reporting; communication (verbal and written) with the business and HMRC; providing updates to both the Head of Tax and the Employment Tax Business Partner.
Are you the right candidate?
You will be a Tax professional with a methodical approach and strong analytical and communication skills. You will have a good grasp of Employment Tax legislation, with the ability to apply IR35 and self-employed tax rules to diverse and often unique situations. These situations can be complex, and it is important that you are able to take these technical principles and explain them coherently to stakeholders that have no knowledge of our tax landscape.
Prior experience in providing employment tax advice in an in-house role would be highly beneficial, although not a pre-requisite, as would be being either ATT or CTA qualified, or able to demonstrate a similar level of practical experience.
Contract type: 6 month fixed-term contract or attachment
We’re happy to discuss flexible working. Please indicate your choice under the flexible working question in the application. There is no obligation to raise this at the application stage but if you wish to do so, you are welcome to. Flexible working will be part of the discussion at offer stage.
Excellent career progression – the BBC offers great opportunities for employees to seek new challenges and work in different areas of the organisation.
Unrivalled training and development opportunities – our in-house Academy hosts a wide range of internal and external courses and certification.
Benefits- We offer a competitive salary package, a flexible 35-hour working week for work-life balance and 26 days holiday with the option to buy an extra 5 days, a defined pension scheme and discounted dental, health care, gym and much more.
