Job Description

Do you recall the story of goldilocks? She entered into the three bears home and noticed porridge was on the table. She tried one that was too hot, one that was too cold and then finally one that was just right.

Do you ever feel like your role in VAT just isn’t at that perfect temperature?

Perhaps, you’re in a firm that expects you to work until late every night just to demonstrate your commitment? Your porridge is too hot.

Or perhaps you’re in a firm where the opportunity to advance is limited? Your porridge is too cold.

What if I could offer you the porridge at the perfect temperature?

This firm can offer you a happy medium. This is a large corporate firm, but not so large that you become just another number. This is not a clock watching environment and your opportunity for promotion is only held back by your own ability.

The VAT team of this Top tier firm is undergoing a high level of growth.

The number one way for a senior tax professional to get promoted is to work for a fast growing firm. In other words to be in the right firm at the right time. Fast growing firms offer you more scope to stand out and greater opportunities for promotion.


When it comes to promotion, the partners will only consider what you have achieved in your role and what you would be capable of at senior manager level rather than the length of time you have served. Typically, you can make senior manager between 18-30 months.

The culture here

The partners approach to working is far from the faceless corporate mentality sometimes associated with larger firms. This is probably one of the reasons that the majority of their team comes from larger firms. The partners have engineered an environment in which ideas and opinions can be shared freely. In other words, they embody what the word ‘team’ actually means compared to other firms who simply brand a group of professionals working in the same office as a team.

Where you would fit

As a VAT manager in this firm, you will be a highly valued member of the team. You will build a rapport with each of your clients which you will develop into strong professional relationships. When confronting their indirect tax issues, you will react both proactively and creatively to provide solutions for your clients.

In addition to improving the status of the firm through the high standards of your work, you will also have the opportunity to grow the business through marketing and assisting with the expansion of the VAT client base.

The team provide UK VAT advisory services, international VAT advisory services and VAT management, governance to a wide variety of sectors that include Financial Services, Real Estate and Not for Profit. Clients include fast growing entrepreneurial companies and significant brand names.
