Tax Assistant Manager - Corporate Tax Advisory, Location Flexible

Location: Manchester

Capability: Tax

Service line: UK Int & Complex (UK)

Experience level: Associate/Assistant Manager

Employment type: Either Full Time Or Part Time


Overview of role

We are looking for an Assistant Manager to help us manage our existing portfolio of clients and to help us win additional work in the Regional Financial Services marketplace.
The work required by the role would be varied and dynamic and would require an understanding of key UK corporate tax principles. Ideally the candidate would have some knowledge and experience of financial services however that is not essential and we would consider suitably qualified candidates who do not have financial services experience as training can be given as needed.
The role will also require the candidate to be able to work as part of a team both with more senior and more junior staff.
The Regional Financial Services Tax Team is a small, friendly and supportive team with staff members based around the country (Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, London, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Bristol). The team are used to working with each other remotely for much of the time and therefore we are open to applicants based anywhere in the UK.
The role is extremely flexible and we are open to full time or part time working. We are also open to home working, flexible working or a mix of both (we anticipate that a mix of both will be the ideal fact pattern for this role as being in the office for at least some of the time will possibly be best from a learning and development perspective).
As the team is fast growing there are excellent opportunities to progress quickly.

Qualifications, Skills and Experience

We are looking for people who are keen to work in an environment that offers plenty of opportunities for personal and professional development. Whilst working with us you will broaden your project management and technical skills and your commercial acumen. You will also have the opportunity to work with many talented people within the wider KPMG network, the financial community and other professional advisers.
