1. Their peer group works there
For the last couple of years, this firm has made a conscious effort of cherry picking the most technically astute individuals from a number of top tier firms. For example, the head of corporate tax worked for almost a decade at a Big 4 firm and prior to that, a Top 10 firm. The international tax partner was employed by another Big 4 firm in both London and New York. This has meant that not only do you have great professionals to learn from but you also have greater exposure to them due to the smaller team size.
2. The work is interesting
The standard of the clients, and subsequently the work, rivals that of the Big 4 which means that you will be constantly challenged. The work is likely to include:
- International structuring, reorganisations and planning for multinational groups across a broad range of industries and sectors
- International M&A/ transactions tax/due diligence
- Transfer Pricing design and documentation work
- Managing UK corporation tax compliance work for a portfolio of international inbound clients
- Generating new business from overseas parented groups looking to establish UK and European operations
You will also have significant involvement in terms of strategy and operation. The Managing Director at this firm is much more amenable to hearing new ideas and implementing them. For example, a tax partner at a Big 4 firm waited 6 months to be told that she could not go ahead with her idea. She moved to this firm and after 10 days her idea was improved and she could begin its implementation.
3. Room to progress
There is no one between you and the international tax partner so you have a clear run through to Directorship. You would be working closely with the international tax partner but may work with the other corporate tax partners on projects. You will therefore gain invaluable mentoring to prepare you for the next step but also it means that all key decision makers in charge promotions will be aware of the progress you are making. If you are ambitious, you could make director within 12-24 months.
