The successful candidate will be required to operate and liaise at all levels within the business, rapidly switching from detail focused compliance to painting the big picture when providing comprehensive advice and tax solutions to senior management.
Acting between the business (board to bottom level), professional advisers and tax authorities, often cross border, the candidate will need excellent communication skills. The ability to prioritise and deal with a rapidly changing list of requirements is essential. As is a 'muck-in', 'sleeves-rolled-up' approach to tax compliance.
