Tax Manager

Based in Worcester with a regular requirement to also work at the Evesham office

£35,000 to £40,000 per annum pro rata

Available as a role for between 24 to 40 hours per week

  • Are your problem-solving skills and report writing abilities outstanding?
  • Is your time management and your attention to detail impeccable?
  • Are you commercially aware and an empowering team player?

Our client, a long established, progressive and dynamic firm of accountants, have an exciting opportunity for a generalist Tax Manager with outstanding numeracy skills, proven initiative, a logical and analytical mind and the ability to interpret and explain complex legislation to non-specialists.

Whilst some experience of having worked in a similar role is essential, a CTA or ATT qualification is desirable but not essential, provided the candidate is experienced in the field of tax advice, with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of business and personal tax, including corporate tax.

As you’ll be working directly with the Firm’s valued clients, a commitment to continuous improvement and continual professional development is essential, as is a proactive, enthusiastic and energetic approach to the work and a positive 'can-do’ attitude. It is also essential that this person is accountable and target-driven, as well as being an engaging 'people person’

In return, as one of the top 15 firms of chartered accountants, the successful candidate will be working in a thriving energetic and forward thinking team with plenty of development opportunities and a healthy work-life balance.

If you think you have what it takes to take this role and run with it, we’d like to hear from you!
