About the role…
Our tax team has grown substantially, particularly during a highly successful last 3 years. We were shortlisted in the 2023 Tolley’s Taxation Awards as ‘Best Employer in Tax’ – complemented by a raft of similar awards and industry recognition – a testament to the amazing talent in our Tax team.
We are searching for a driven, ambitious and credible Director to lead our successful Reading Private Client team into a new era.
Our Crowe team in the Thames Valley is fab and is going from strength to strength. Our client numbers, fee income and headcount have grown year-on-year. Tax has been a crucial part of this performance and remains a key pillar of our future business strategy. Our tax team headcount has increased 66% since March 2020 and is a testament to this. So, leading this team will give the holder a golden opportunity to build something special.
We would love to hear from you if you can demonstrate excellent leadership qualities as well as strong technical experience and knowledge. We’d expect that you will have had some notable experience in another leadership role in Private Client Tax, with some equally notable achievements to showcase your success.

You’ll also be an inspiring leader and manager of people and bring a collaborative, empowering and influential managerial style to the team.

Your team will be inspired by the example you set and will be motivated to deliver outstanding work for their clients.
You will be able to provide examples of impressive client work that demonstrate your ability to skilfully build lasting business relationships, as well as be able to showcase an innate talent to develop new and existing business, leading to the growth and success of your team and the Private Client business.
