Private Business / Corporate Tax Director

Leading independent regional firm of accountants


£Highly competitive with route to Partner if desired


This well-known independent firm has achieved great success in 2017 in relation to winning mid-market corporate finance related tax work.  On the back of this success, a new opportunity has arisen for a high performing Associate Director/Director to join the team.  This role will be based in the firm’s headquarters in Manchester and will support the Tax Partner on technical work whilst taking control of the efficiency of the team and its outputs.   


This is an outstanding opportunity for an ambitious and proactive corporate tax professional to join a successful team and contribute to the development of the tax practice.  You will have the opportunity to immediately get involved in interesting tax consultancy projects and develop market leading solutions whilst developing your own portfolio through building relationships internally and leveraging current client opportunities.  If progressing to Partner is your ambition, this firm can offer a straightforward business case to achieving your goal.

In terms of the personal profile of our preferred candidate, we are looking for someone who can demonstrate first class technical skills in relation to corporate and business taxes affecting owner managed businesses and entrepreneurs.  This experience could have been gained in another leading independent/boutique or mid-tier firm; a leading legal firm or through an entrepreneurial tax/transaction tax team in a Big 4 firm. Crucially you must possess a business winning mentality; an enquiring mind to question legislation and how to be to interpret for clients’ benefits; and a robustness of character in order to challenge the Partner group on how to approach issues. 

This role would be ideally suited to a Senior Manager looking for their next step, or an existing Director looking to join a dynamic and progressive firm where they will be part of a high performing peer group and have a real opportunity to progress to Partner.

What’s on offer?

£Market leading salary + excellent benefits and flexible approach to work-life balance
