Are you looking to take the next step on your journey? Do you want to be part of an international family whose vision is "To make their services smarter, more effective, and more personal every day"? If yes, then you could be our next investment! At Azets, you'rein control of your career and with our support this will make us even stronger, together.
Our motto when it comes to career development is "Your Journey, Your Voice, Your Success".
Azets is an award-winning leading firm of Accountants and Business Advisers operating across the UK and the Nordics. We are a family of over 6,500 employees and work across over 80 offices in the UK alone. We have seen dramatic growth in recent years which has made us the 9th largest accountancy firm in the UK, and we are over the moon to have been awarded Accountancy Firm of the Year in the FD Excellence Survey 2020. As a result of this growth, we are now looking to invest in our skills set even further!
For us, the personal attributes of each of our employees is what makes us authentic in the marketplace. We look for people who can not only collaborate with peers but can also bring their own voice to the table. We want people who are dynamic in their approach and respectful of other people’s opinions. We're looking for someone who wants to join a family of like-minded individuals and be more than just a team member.
You will be expected to provide a range of tax services and business advice to a variety of clients from small, fast growing clients to large corporate entities. Our clients come from all industries, so exposure to multiple sectors would be a distinct advantage, as would a thorough understanding of R&D Tax Credits. More specifically this would include handling complex queries for clients of the office, liaising with clients to resolve issues, communicating with internal departments to ensure deadlines are met and overseeing client portfolios to ensure HMRC deadlines are met. You will be expected to be the main provider of training to junior members of the team so good communication skills and an approachable nature will be crucial.
Tax advisory services will be a significant part of the role with numerous and immediate opportunities to be involved in assisting the directors/partners in the delivery of advisory projects.
We encourage our tax team to develop tax planning specialisms so that we can deliver high quality advice to clients and so that you can develop a niche for yourself. Leveraging off an excellent client base, you will have exposure to tax advisory projects which you will either lead or play a significant role in.
In terms of qualifications, we want to ensure we are offering the best service to our customers. An accountancy/tax qualification such as CTA, ACA or ACCA is expected given the level of the role, but is not essential. Several years of demonstrable tax experience is more important, and indeed essential, for this role. The successful appointment will have a collaborative outlook with a process mindset. You will have the opportunity to mentor and manage a team as well as the prospect to grow the team further.A note from the Hiring Manager
"Joining a busy and productive team the successful candidate will immediately be exposed to a number of advisory projects which encompass a wide range of topics. Support offered within the team is exceptional with vast experience and knowledge available that will undoubtedly progress the career of the right individual if they have the willingness and aptitude to seize the opportunity that this presents. They will also have the opportunity to develop their people management skills by managing and developing junior staff. "What's in it for you?
