We don’t focus just on tax - a key part of what we do for our clients involves liaising with the audit teams (most of our corporate clients are also audited by PwC) and the Advisory parts of the firm when we know it can help their business.

We are looking to recruit high calibre, ambitious people accustomed to working as part of a team
