*Great opportunity for an ambitious VAT Manager to join this growing Fortune 500 company in London*
Our client is a very successful, US headquartered multinational group. This is an opportunity for a VAT Manager with entrepreneurial flair to join an excellent global tax group and take ownership of complex cross border VAT projects.
The tax team like the rest of its departments are driven by value & contribution. They operate in an ego-less and unbureaucratic environment with a push for continuous improvement.
The position will focus on VAT strategy & planning, VAT consequences of M&A deals, day-to-day VAT questions from the businesses, and VAT audits.
All VAT compliance is outsourced and they are on the journey of digitalisation so part of the job will be to identify opportunities for process transformation to drive value. Someone for a keen interest in tax technology solutions will really enjoy this environment.
From day one you will need to spend time meeting the different business units, getting buy-in and building your own relationships. You will be given autonomy to use your initiative to establish the role and make contacts in the different functions & businesses.
To meet the challenge of this role, you will be a qualified VAT professional probably at manager grade, with a good awareness of tax developments in VAT law/practice and the impact on multinational businesses as well as good working knowledge of ERP and the interaction with VAT/GST tax technology solutions.
Most importantly you need to be a self-starter and have a desire to build yourself into an effective partner to the business.
