Our client is an International accounting firm with offices throughout the United Kingdom. This is a truly national practice and, as a result, they are pleased to offer M&A Tax work to Tax professionals wherever you are based in the UK. Many of the clients may in fact be based in London, but this will not prevent much of the work being conducted by people at home or in one of the firm's offices nationwide.
Often roles which are "near-shored" around the UK tend to be Compliance only, rather than M&A or advisory, so this is a fantastic opportunity for someone who wants London quality work without the commute or relocation. If you are required to travel to London for business, all travel is reimbursed, but technology allows most work to be performed remotely.
You will have a strong base of UK Corporate Tax experience (possibly mixed or OMB Tax, but if you are mostly personal tax focused, you will need to demonstrate a level of comfort reading and interpreting financial statements) and an interest in transactions work. This type of work is less predictable than compliance, which can fit in well to a flexible work lifestyle but this flexibility can work both ways, if deadlines move at short notice.
You will often be working on very confidential assignments with well-known brands and businesses, hence a high level of discretion and professionalism is essential.
