Your new company
Your new organisation is a long-standing independent firm of chartered accountants based primarily in Glasgow with approximately 40 staff. Offering Accountancy, Audit and Assurance, Taxation, Bookkeeping, Payroll and Advisory services, the firm has a diverse client base across the SME market, including high net worth individuals, sole traders and partnerships, as well as local businesses with turnovers upon to £100 million. Having achieved consistent growth, this firm provides stability and a good work-life balance. Indeed, they have excellent staff retention; testament to the firm's great culture and offering as an employer. Indeed, a long-standing member of the Tax Team, who has been with the firm in advance of 10 years, is retiring; hence a vacancy has arisen for a private client tax specialist

Your new role
Operating within a small Tax Team and in collaboration with an experienced Accounts Team, you will manage and coordinate the compliance for 1000 private and 400 commercial clients. With the support of a Tax Assistant, you will ensure computations are calculated accurately and information is submitted to HMRC efficiently in accordance to deadlines. Further to this, you will support the Tax Partner and work alongside them when providing tax planning advice. As a key point of contact within the firm in relation to tax, you will meet and speak with clients regularly, ensuring you understand their business requirements thoroughly.

What you'll need to succeed
You will have in excess of 5 years' experience operating within a chartered accountancy firm in relation to tax. This will have given you a solid grounding in Personal (and potentially Corporate) Tax compliance provisioning. ATT or CTA qualifications are preferred but not essential. You will have excellent communication skills with the ability to manage your time as well as others'. You will be a positive and competent individual, who feels comfortable liaising with those at all levels and managing client relationships.

What you'll get in return
In addition to working for a long-standing firm offering stability and a diverse client base, you will receive a competitive salary depending on your experience. A relaxed and individual-focused culture, flexible working is on offer, for example, the role may be full-time or part-time; or can (should the successful individual wish) be a combination of the two depending upon time of year.
