Are you interested in joining one of the fastest-growing Reward teams in the UK?
Owing to an ongoing period of growth and success, we're currently looking for an experienced Senior Tax Manager for the Reward team of a Big 4 firm in their Manchester or Leeds offices, working on a mixed portfolio of clients covering large multinationals to smaller unlisted and AIM-listed corporates. The firm owes many of its recent client wins to its willingness to invest in and embrace new technology, and those looking to work in a more tech-forward and innovative Tax environment will not be disappointed here.
As a Senior Manager, you'll play a key role in leading the team as well as running complex advisory projects for the firm and its clients. We're particularly looking for someone with experience advising on the tax and legal aspects of incentive arrangements, ideally with an interest in getting involved in business development activities including leading on client proposals and writing technical articles and alerts.
Compared to other Reward practices, this team is set apart from the competition in that it offers a much broader spectrum of work across reward and share plans, covering both listed and unlisted companies, UK-based and international. In particular, tax specialists will be able to get involved in reward consulting work as well, covering executive compensation and regulatory advisory work.
On the perks side, you'll benefit from a competitive salary and a market-leading benefits package, including private medical care and health insurance, Enhanced Pay up to 18 weeks for new parents, free lunches and your birthday off - plus a whole host of flexible benefits including the ability to buy up to 10 days of additional holiday (in addition to 25 days leave plus bank/public holidays and your birthday), season ticket loans, and childcare vouchers, among other things. Senior Managers are also eligible for a yearly car/cash allowance equivalent to £5,500. As a cherry on the top, the team has a recent history of consistent bonus payouts between 10-20% of salary.
Flexible working is not only a benefit but the norm here, with agile starts and finishes as the standard, plus office-wide early finishes on Fridays in the Summer. Above all else, this is a firm renowned for its inclusive and friendly culture; if working in a supportive environment with a dynamic Partner/Director group that will encourage and empower you sounds like a good idea, then this could be for you.
All we need from you is:
● An ATT / CTA / ACA qualification, qualified solicitor, or qualified by experience i.e. with HMRC
● Proven experience working in equity incentives and share schemes
● Experience gained in either a professional services firm, or in industry but with the ability to deliver in a professional services environment
● To be working at the Senior Manager level already, or a Manager ready to progress
Please note that we cannot consider applicants without UK tax experience.
