Global Mobility Services (GMS) Technology One Year Business Placement

Advancements in technology are rapidly changing the way companies do business globally and how employers are interacting with their employees. We help organisations manage their global workforce and use technology to provide tax and advisory services to companies and individuals. Our mobile and web applications enable companies to manage and stay in touch with their employees around the world.

Working directly with a broad range of clients, you will assist companies to define processes and implement mobile and web technologies which help them manage their global workforce to stay tax compliant. You will gain insights into how companies do business globally; and you will also learn about the latest technologies and how to put them to use. You will be involved in developing and implementing technology for clients from day one. Working as part of a team, you will gather client requirements and translate these into working solutions. Along the way you will work directly with developers and client customers in Tax, HR and Global Mobility.

Our One Year Business Placement programme offers a valuable opportunity for you to gain experience in one of the world's leading tax and advisory organisations while developing your tax advisory and technology consulting skills. This one-year programme will give you an insight into our firm and help you to build your knowledge of how multinational companies do business.

Like our clients, COVID-19 has presented new challenges for our team and we're having to adapt and introduce innovative ways of working. This means new working patterns, physical adjustments in our offices and new ways of interacting with our colleagues as well as the organisations we work with - we are harnessing technology to help underpin this change.
