Tax Assistant Manager – Corporate Tax Advisory & Compliance / 103603

The KPMG Corporate Tax Advisory & Compliance team is a cornerstone of our business.  Operating from Nottingham we do work that matters, serving the region with diligence and expertise.

KPMG is one of the world's largest and most respected consultancy businesses.  We've supported the UK through times of war and peace, prosperity and recession, political and regulatory upheaval. We've proudly stood beside the institutions and businesses which make the UK what it is.

We are a network of specialists with a proven track record in Corporate Tax who can offer a forward-thinking working environment with a supportive structure and management team. We collaborate with organisations of all shapes and sizes across a broad range of tax solutions.

Why Join KPMG as a Tax Assistant Manager – Corporate Tax Advisory & Compliance
