Harvey John Accountancy Recruitment


£90000 - £120000 per annum + Benefits & Bonus

With a strong DNA of the Big 4 and top tier strategy houses, notwithstanding a reputation for technical excellence, this independent firm have won awards year-on-year and grown significantly on a global scale.

As a Senior VAT Manager or Director from a top tier accountancy practice, this represents a refreshing and challenging next chapter in your career and the opportunity to do something excitingly different from other top tier / big 4 roles.

About the Role

  • By advising on complex UK and cross-border VAT technical issues across a diverse client base, you'll need to be someone who thrives of variety and adding value
  • Your workload will involve advising on restructuring, M&A, company re-organisations, insolvency, and other cross-border financial issues. Experience in this area is preferred, but not essential
  • The thrill of winning a deal is another experience that energises you. You'll be taking a lead on identifying new commercial opportunities and driving business development initiatives
  • As a confident and engaging communicator, you'll be both a mentor to junior staff and be able to work collaboratively with global partners to coordinate international VAT issues and opportunities

The entire makeup of the firm is refreshingly different: the way you'll be operating with clients; the opportunities for career progression, without the glass ceilings; the firm's culture; and even the remuneration outweighs the Big 4.

Whilst there are still elements of familiarity here, it's an opportunity for those that want something different. This isn't a role where you'll have to completely re-shape your career, but it's a new platform to challenge yourself. Here you can lift off the limitations you face in the Big 4 / top tier firms.

To discuss this informally and see if it's really for you, give Alex Mann a call. You've got nothing to lose from a non-committal chat but potentially everything to gain.

If you don't have an up to date CV, don't worry. We can cross that bridge when it comes to it.
