This Top 10 practice has a clear vision around its go-to-market and people strategies which is allowing them to differentiate the way they connect to their clients compared to the competition. The consequent flow of work wins is impressive and is driving the need to hire a corporate tax manager or senior manager with a broad sector experience and an excellent advisory skill-set. The key sells include:
• Focus on having a broad commercial conversation with clients which goes beyond tax
• Increased responsibility over your clients and genuine ownership over your relationships
• Support and freedom internally to develop commercial ideas and take them to market
• Genuine feeling within the business of a shared strategic vision and a clear path to achieve this.
The right individual will have a good UK/International tax skill set from a Big 4 or mid-tier practice, a desire to be part of a business taking a different market approach and an entrepreneurial/commercial spirit.
