Senior Associates - Transfer Pricing - Reading
The South East transfer pricing team is a dynamic, diverse and close-knit team which is looking for new members to help it continue its impressive growth over the last two years in a region which has been identified by PwC as a key area for strategic investment. The team, which is led by partner Andrew Taylor, has a blend of experienced transfer pricing practitioners and those keen to develop their skills in this area. Currently comprising 20 members, the team is one of the largest of PwC's regional transfer pricing practices and provides great opportunities for individuals to build their careers within transfer pricing. The team services clients across five offices in the South East with a presence in three of those offices, Reading, Cambridge and North London.
As such, the team operates on a regional basis with team members working on clients across the region. Our client base includes companies from across a broad range of industries but with a particular concentration of technology and pharmaceutical groups, and from different market segments, including UK listed groups, private businesses, and in particular, inbound clients. The type of work that the team carries out is very varied, including large operating model transformations, transfer pricing policy design and implementation, defence documentation, and tax authority audits, along with a range of transfer pricing of debt assignments.
The structure of the team means that individuals have the opportunity to take on more responsibility and to undertake more interesting work at an earlier stage of their career than they might do in a larger, more established practice. As a fast growing team, we are looking for individuals who are keen to work in a dynamic and fun environment which will provide significant career opportunities.
