What does our tax team do?

A career in tax isn’t just about numbers. It’s about working with people and businesses to really understand what they want to achieve and make sure tax doesn’t become an obstacle to their long-term goals. The diversity of our tax programmes gives you the choice to tailor your career to your interests and strengths. Tax is always evolving, and you’ll be on the ground making sure our clients are prepared and ahead of the game.

What can you expect?

Undertaking a placement year with RSM means you will get to work directly with clients. If it’s an individual it might be understanding their family wealth, how they create it and how they want to share it with future generations. If it’s a company then it might be understanding how they plan to grow, benefit from government tax incentives, return profits to stakeholders, expand internationally, or exit their business in a tax efficient manner. It’s about applying tax law to real life and working with our clients to add value – from saving money, ensuring they mitigate tax risks and comply with reporting requirements.

What we look for

Tax is a technically demanding discipline, so we look for people who are always up for a challenge and thrive grasping new subjects. While you don’t have to be a maths genius, you will need to be comfortable with numbers, have the ability to develop an analytical mindset, and enjoy the prospect of delving into tax legislation. As you grow in Team Tax, you’ll benefit from being mentored in a culture that wants you to be the best version of you, to grow and be part of RSM.

It’s our collaborative approach that differentiates us from other professional services firms. Everyone’s contributions are valued. Your voice will be heard, and you’ll be supported to bring your best self to work.
