Transaction Tax Senior Advisor - Open to flexible working
Senior, Transaction Tax, Edinburgh
Transaction Tax works with clients of all sizes in all industries, ranging from Scottish entrepreneur led businesses to the largest global enterprises. In this dynamic and fast-moving environment, individuals apply their skills to a variety of transactions, often on complex assignments that involve working with colleagues across a variety of disciplines and jurisdictions.
With a truly entrepreneurial spirit there is the flexibility to shape your career in particular sectors or areas of the M&A landscape or to get experience across the spectrum. Our flexibility and speed to market means that you will be joining a Scottish transactions team which has grown each year throughout the downturn - in order to take advantage of the current opportunities in the market we need to continue to recruit the best talent.
In this team you will get wide-ranging experience in all the core areas of transactional work – including corporate deals, private equity, infrastructure, distressed debt and turnaround transactions and restructuring.
As deal advisers, Transaction Tax team members not only get good UK tax technical experience but also get a commercial understanding of what is important to our clients in a deal context. As a large part of TT work is cross-border, you will also have an early introduction to international structuring techniques and overseas tax regimes.
