Job Description:

Let's talk about the job

If you enjoy working on a wide-reaching range of projects that will help businesses and communities flourish, you'll fit right in. Here are some things you can expect from this Tax and Treasury Senior Manager role.
  • Making quality second nature. This means doing what's right even when no one's looking. The work that you will do has a major impact on our firm. We pride ourselves on the high-level standards we have for the work that we do.
  • Own your own work. This is a key role to co-ordinate tax and treasury activities for the firm, from reviewing compliance work prepared by your team, to liaising with specialists to ensure Tax and Treasury are considered proactively. You'll maintain and develop the Tax and Treasury policies and processes, including increased digitalisation. You and your team will take ownership of all Tax and Treasury matters for audit and statutory accounts reporting.
  • Be a part of a team. You'll report into the Finance Director and have a high level of exposure to the Senior Leadership Team and Partner Group. The Tax and Treasury Senior Manager will also be supported by a team of 4 experienced staff, with expertise in Direct and Indirect tax and you will be liaising with our Client-facing Tax professionals for support on complex matters
  • Take responsibility. You'll develop the Tax and Treasury KPI's for internal and Board reporting and oversee the production of cash forecasting, short and long term, analysing variances to improve future accuracy. You'll manage Foreign currency risk in accordance with policies and procedures and work in conjunction with the Finance Director and Financial Planning team to negotiate any credit lines. You'll be the main point of contact for all amendments to access to banking systems and all matters arising in relation to the company's day to day banking arrangements.
  • Build your brand. Given the importance of this role, there will be exciting opportunities for the right person to grow their firmwide network, expand their knowledge and develop their skillset. This is a unique opportunity to develop your profile across the firm and work with client facing teams. This is a great opportunity to add value, while developing the knowledge of other, directly and indirectly, across the Finance team.

The minimum criteria
  • Qualified Accountant or Tax Advisor (CTA, ACA or ACCA)

Skills to set you apart

Here are a few more skills we are looking for. Don't worry if you don't tick every box. It's important for us to support you in your role and help you to develop along the way.
  • Treasury qualification would be ideal but not essential (support would be given to obtain an appropriate Treasury qualification)
  • Previous knowledge of partial exemption
  • Corporate tax knowledge
  • Ability to present complex information in a clear and understandable format

Do you care about the same things we do?

We have six values we work by. When we meet, we'll want you to show us how they're important to you, too.

Collaboration: We work together, share ideas and always make time to help each other out.

Leadership: Everyone has the chance to lead their own projects.

Excellence: Quality is central to our purpose. We love what we do, and it shows. We sweat the details. We see things through, no matter how tricky.

Agility: The world moves quickly. To keep up, we stay flexible - changing approaches, changing projects, working offline, online, together and alone to get things done.

Respect: A given, of course: we value each other and our clients. We listen, we understand, we care.

Responsibility: The decisions we make and advice we give affects people's lives and livelihoods. We take that seriously and always do well by doing what's right.

Share ideas and profits

Unlike most firms, we're also a shared enterprise. So when the firm does well, everyone does well by taking home a share of the profits. Of course, to get those profits, we need to share ideas and share responsibility for our work, too.

Bring your whole self

Now you've seen our values, it shouldn't be a surprise that we're creating a respectful, open, diverse place to work. Building an inclusive culture, where we value difference and respect our colleagues, is not just the right thing to do, it helps our people to perform at the best of their ability and realise their potential.

"We are committed to making sure that the opportunities within our firm are equally accessible for everyone - regardless of background or gender." Dave Dunckley, CEO

There's more to life than work

Families, children, sports, night classes...the things you do and the people you're with outside work matter. They can inspire, motivate and energise you. Inside the office and out. So if you'd like to work flexibly, let us know. We're happy to look at flexible working options for all our roles, and we'll always do our best to keep your work and life in balance.
