Our client is a specialist firm of indirect tax advisors. This practice seeks an experienced Senior Manager to join their team and ultimately have the opportunity to rise to become Head of VAT.
You will need broad ranging VAT experience – some knowledge of the public sector, partial exemption and the Capital Goods Scheme, would be particularly helpful. Experience of VAT as related to property, M&A work and the healthcare sector would also be advantageous.
Alongside sound technical experience you will need proven experience of managing and developing more junior staff. You will also be involved in business development work which includes preparing and presenting webinars and seminars for clients and targets. Another key element of the role will be working with the management team to oversee the finances of the business and to ensure clients are satisfied with the service provided.
You may have trained with HMRC and then moved in to practice or you might currently work in industry – whichever route you must have practical experience of dealing with complicated VAT claims and experience of negotiating with HMRC.
With staff returning to the office its is envisaged that this role will be office based however there is some flexibility and it might include a day a week working from home.
