  • You will have post qualified experience (ACA, CA, CTA, ACCA or equivalent) (minimum requirement)
  • You will have experience of managing a large portfolio of tax clients
  • You will have demonstrable Business Development experience
  • The time you spend outside of work helps shape what you can bring to our firm. We value the commitments you may have outside of work and will consider all flexible working applications.
  • You should be commercially focused with the ability to deliver innovative solutions. You should be focused on self-development as well as having the desire to coach, mentor and develop your colleagues.
