Our offer to you…
Be part of the world’s leading professional services network and enjoy the benefits that come with that. You’ll work directly with big name clients where you’ll get to grips with the value they’re looking for by getting into the detail. We’ll provide an environment where you’ll be able to explore new opportunities, to help you grow and find your niche. And we’ll give you access to be best learning and development around.
Learn everything the UK’s largest tax practice with the leading reputation can teach you. Your knowledge will help high-profile businesses, entrepreneurs and private clients understand complex rules and make informed decisions with significant impacts. You’ll also help governments ensure the efficient operation of tax systems and use your insight to solve long-term problems. You’ll be part of a business that’s committed to proactively engaging with the tax policy debate and focused on leading views and new ideas. Our people need to be agile and ready to build strong relationships, networks and leadership skills. Our expertise covers every conceivable area of taxation. Over 3,000 tax experts work in some 20 key areas on projects ranging from preparing annual accounts to restructuring multimillion-pound property portfolios, and from buying a business to advising celebrities on the tax implications of worldwide tours.
What you’d do
You’ll join one of three specialist teams:
Corporate Tax – you’ll help clients– from the largest organisations to budding entrepreneurs and high-net worth individuals – manage their tax risk and comply with complex legislation. You’ll tackle a broad range of work that includes multinational advisory projects, tax compliance and researching business issues that affect clients’ tax affairs – all while keeping pace with regularly changing tax rules.
Human Resource Consulting Services – you’ll help some of the world’s leading employers make the most of their biggest asset – their people. You’ll work on a broad range of projects helping clients define their HR strategy and ensure their HR function is effective, through to helping clients improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their workforce. This might include anything from international pensions to communications, employment law and talent management to tax compliance, reward and employee incentives.
Indirect Tax – you’ll advise businesses on VAT and other indirect taxes, including the international trade issues linked to Customs and Excise Duties. It’s a highly commercial, ever-changing and extremely wide-ranging field. You could be involved in purely UK activities or global projects, working on more efficient internal processes or on a merger or acquisition. You’ll study to become a Chartered Accountant, a highly respected, broad-based business qualification or, if you join Indirect Tax, you can choose to study for a specialist tax qualification like the Chartered Tax Adviser.
Your training and development:
Our people make us stand out as a business. So we choose the best and invest heavily in them. You’ll benefit from the encouragement, opportunity and support which includes:
- Our graduate training programme helps you gain breadth as well as depth of knowledge and build a portfolio of valuable, transferable skills.
- Movement throughout the organisation – you’ll work in different teams and offices, experience different clients and projects; try out new roles and even sample other business areas.
- Support to gain a professional qualification – study towards becoming a Chartered Accountant with the Institute of Chartered Accountants, England and Wales (ICAEW) or the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS). Or you may have the opportunity to study towards a specialist tax qualification such as the Chartered Tax Advisor (CTA).
What you need to bring us
- A 2:1 or above in any degree subject
- A UCAS tariff of at least 300 (or equivalent)
Equally important will be your intellect, willingness to learn, ability to build relationships, put yourself in others’ shoes, while always making a positive impact with our clients and each other.
