As a complex, constantly changing and increasingly high-profile field, tax offers you the opportunity to pursue an extensive and diverse range of career paths. Our tax teams work with a wide range of organisations and individuals, providing quality, independent advice to help them implement tax strategies that best suit their needs, within domestic and international legal and regulatory requirements.

Our four-week Tax Vacation programme gives you the chance to gain practical experience working within a leading professional services firm. You’ll find out more about our tax teams and the scale and breadth of the work we do, develop your business knowledge and build technical skills. It's an opportunity to make new contacts, enhance your CV and discover what it’s like to be part of our supportive and vibrant community.

You’ll gain insights into how we help our clients manage tax issues, such as digitally transforming business models and reacting to significant changes to taxation policy. Across the spectrum of company and personal tax issues, you could learn about international tax, transfer pricing, VAT and deal advisory tax. You could explore the intricacies of managing tax issues for a global workforce or develop your knowledge of how to advise high net worth individuals and entrepreneurial families on managing their tax affairs.

Plus, if you’re successful, you’ll have the opportunity to fast-track towards a Tax Graduate programme in the same office location starting in 2021.
