Our FS Tax team works across Banking, Insurance, Investment Management, Private Equity and funds markets. You will have the opportunity to work across a varied portfolio of clients taking ownership over these relationships and the delivery of tax technical work.

Technical skills

  • Financial services taxation covers a range of disciplines. We realise that many skilled practitioners may have a particular focus in one area, for example the funds sector, and less focus on other areas.
  • As we are a growing financial services practice, we are seeking experienced professionals across all areas of financial services taxation, with the opportunity to specialize in your area of expertise while also having the opportunity to expand your knowledge base across other areas.
  • We are looking for individuals with strong technical knowledge and an ability to communicate that knowledge in a coherent fashion. We are also looking for individuals who are solution driven.
  • Whether you have developed your skills in practice or in industry is not critical but we would expect all candidates to have spent time in a professional services firm environment.
