|Job Title||VAT Senior Manager - be yourself, not a number. London.|
|Salary||£72000 - £84000 per annum|
|Job Published||12 months ago|
|Who to Contact||Harriet Baylore|
If you were to ask many accountancy firms what one word characterises them best, you are likely to hear words such as ambition, commitment and prosperity. In this firm that I am representing, it would be people. Now that’s not to say that this firm doesn’t embody qualities like ambition, commitment and prosperity … far from it. However, it is their clients and professionals that remain of paramount importance.
It is this approach that has allowed the firm to double in size in under 10 years. The practice has a strong London base andoffices peppered across the UK. The practice is also part of a highly successful international network that is feeding work to the UK firm.
This practice pride themselves on valuing each of their clients individually. That is why they put so much effort into each of their projects and maintain such high standard of work – in regards to both the technical and advisory work. This does not mean they are not focused growth. Quite the opposite, they believe by delivering the best work, delivering great client service and maintaining their relationships they will not only retain their original clients but also add to their portfolio though referrals and winning new work. This approach is obviously working as the firm has recently acquired numerous new clients and a number of offices across the UK.
What support you will receive and how far you can go
Their people oriented approach also applies to the professionals working within their teams. You could never be considered another number in this team. The partners within VAT genuinely care about the professional development of their staff and their progress within the firm. They offer both in house training and external training for their professionals. They want you to succeed and will support you to achieve that aim.
If you do flourish in the position, you will get promoted. Simple! I know a lot of firms make this concept seem complex but that tracks back to the fact they’re not people orientated. Some firms won’t consider what you have achieved, what you have contributed and what your potential is. They simply have a box to fill and if you do not fit it, you won’t get promoted. The emphasis on individuality at this firm means that would never pose an issue for you. People are promoted according to ability – nothing else. This is probably why the firm boasts of such high retention rates.
They don’t want a manager here…
They want a leader. They want someone who will bring a fresh perspective to the team. Bring new ideas to the group and collectively move them forward. You will be responsible for ensuring projects are delivered on time and therefore you will delegate work to each of your team and ensure it is all completed to a high standard. You will also take an active interest in developing each individual to ensure they skills are being maximised, that they are developing and that they are happy.
Additionally, you will be responsible for your own portfolio of clients ranging across a number of sectors.
Example of the work the team deals with include: property transactions, business restructures , business disposals, cross border and international trade taxation, Customs duty, reliefs and refunds, HMRC investigations, HMRC disputes and appeals to VAT tribunals and fraud investigations.
If you’re the kind of person who wants to be valued within your team, where you can say that you have had a direct and positive influence on shaping the career of junior professionals and be challenged daily by your own exciting client portfolio, then hit the apply button.
