What can I tell you about our client? The team is the market leading Tax advisor in the MENA region, dominating for more than 15 years. It is also the fastest growing tax practice globally within the firm - year on year of 40% growth is extremely impressive and has created senior tax leadership roles at both Partner and Director/Designate Partner levels.
As specialists in Transfer Pricing and Tax advisory recruitment, TP International takes a huge amount of pride in our international coverage. Whilst most of our client locations are mainstream, we love the kudos of completing strategic assignments requiring an “off piste” approach. Call it doggedness, stubbornness, perseverance or sheer obstinacy with a sprinkle of downright showboating – we’ve always found a creative solution to a unique Partner or Director leadership gap!
WHAT THE CLIENT SAYS......
Having spent the last week in Dubai, what is clear is the significant growth potential across the KSA region. To put it mildly, it’s HUGE and we’d love to speak to International Tax/M&A Tax Partners/Directors who want to get involved in the development from the beginning. The opportunity to work on 100% outbound advisory projects and shape tax legislation/TP rules at government level is extremely exciting. From a personality perspective, you will need to be up for an adventure, cope well with spontaneity (repetitive daily structure does not exist!) and possess the leadership and people skills to build a strong team that you can proudly look back on in 3-5 years.
WHAT WE THINK....
In speaking to Partners who have lived in KSA/MENA for 5-10 years, their career development has been very exciting. Compared to remaining in the UK or another mainstream location - Mangers have become Partners within 7 years, they have seen teams grow at unprecedented rate compared to their global counterparts and the lack of structure and rapidly changing tax environment has been fun to be a part of!
Professionals with Oil & Gas, Private Equity and Real Estate sector experience are of high interest however there are also career opportunities for strong generalists. For further information, please contact Liz Tookey.
