At EY, you’ll have the chance to build a career as unique as you are, with the global scale, support, inclusive culture and technology to become the best version of you.

As a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction, and advisory services, we are using the finance products, expertise, and systems we have developed to build a better working world. That starts with a culture that believes in giving you the training, opportunities, and creative freedom to make things better.

  • Support with advising clients on UK domestic employment tax matters including, benefits and expenses reporting, termination payments, salary sacrifice, Off-Payroll Workers, PAYE, and operational payroll matters as well as international aspects with respect to employment taxes
  • Contribute to successfully extracting maximum value for both EY and clients from the tax services delivered whilst managing risk appropriately for both client and the fir

Skills and attributes for success

  • Excellent communicator in a range of situations both written and oral
  • A strategic and commercial awareness of wide business issues
  • An enthusiastic and flexible attitude to work
  • To be a strong and motivated team player
  • To be able to work under pressure and meet tight deadlines

  • Client focused and commercially aware
  • Relationship management skills with the ability to manage client expectations
  • Ability to solve problems creatively and pragmatically
  • Excellent communicator in a range of situations both written and oral
  • Experience working in employment tax, dealing with compliance issues, and providing technical advice, as well as winning work in the market.

Ideally, you’ll also have:

  • Experience working within professional services
  • ATT/ACA/CA/ACCA/CTA/Law qualification (or equivalent)
