The Benefits of Working for a Fast Growing Firm
Working for a firm that has limited growth potential will severely curtail your ability to advance. This is an obvious statement, but one that often gets ignored. Fast growing firms will need to hire and promote. If your team is expanding and has a desperate need to promote, even standard performance can lead to promotion. Necessity and the need to hit targets will drive this. Don’t believe me? Have a look around your peer group. I bet you can think of at least one person who has done well due to circumstances rather than ability.
Imagine what you could do as a high performer in a fast growing firm…
The number one way for a senior tax professional to get promoted is to work for a fast growing firm. In other words to be in the right firm at the right time.
Fast growing firms offer you more scope to stand out and greater opportunities for promotion.
These firms are also far more enjoyable to work at. There will always be a buzz around the office as the team feel a greater level of appreciation for the work that makes that growth possible.
Below are some examples of positions in growth driven firms.
Corporate Tax Senior Manager/Director
I am recruiting for a fast growing corporate tax consultancy team that has a track record of advancing its staff.
The prospects at this firm are some of the best I have encountered. Partners view it as a personal failure if you have to ask for a promotion, as they feel that they should be the ones to recognise and reward talent. In other words, advancement should be the natural consequence of doing a good job.
The role can offer you an immediate promotion to director upon joining or a fast track, depending on how confident you feel about your abilities. Ref: 4781
Associate Director Real Estate
This opportunity offers you a seat at the table. This firm has one of the largest international networks outside of the Big 4 and holds a great deal of prestige within the UK market. A partner was brought on a couple of years ago to build the Real Estate sector and he has superseded all expectations. The partner now needs a number two that he can depend on technically but also someone who can develop business from the wider network. Finally, it is important that you are able to develop junior members of the team and bring them up with you as you develop into a partnership position. Ref:4782
Corporate Tax Manager. Market Leading Firm.
Advance to senior manager in a 12 month time frame at this top firm.
Most of the Managers I speak to are looking for firms that operate like modern businesses and invest in their people. They see it as the ideal working environment to allow them to progress.
The firm that I am recruiting for invests in its teams with the expectation that it will win business and experience high growth. The senior partners have a tremendous track record of building teams and think like business people. In other words, when they hire someone at the senior end, they put money behind that person.
