We are a family of over 6,500 employees and work across 100 offices in the UK alone. We have seen dramatic growth in recent years which has made us the 9th largest accountancy firm in the UK, and we are over the moon to have been awarded Accountancy Firm of the Year in the FD Excellence Survey 2020.

To get the job that you'll love

For us, the personal attributes of each of our employees is what makes us authentic in the marketplace. We look for people who can not only collaborate with peers but can also bring their own voice to the table. We want people who are dynamic in their approach and respectful of other people’s opinions. We're looking for someone who wants to join a family of like-minded individuals and be more than just a team member.

As VAT Manager you will be responsible for leading the day to day duties of your team. You will need to support all levels of team members with their technical research, reviewing their work and ensuring clients are managed not only efficiently but effectively with proactive and reactive advice. You will also be managing a portfolio of more complex clients, through investigations and beyond, to provide peace of mind and technical support when they need it most. You will be encouraged to network with wider VAT teams within the business to ensure you are working on a National level to service clients and keep technical expertise current.

For this position, we are looking for someone with varied VAT experienced gained within HMRC, another accountancy firm or industry. You may be CTA qualified however this is not essential. In addition, you will be comfortable working with minimal supervision and be confident taking ownership of your own portfolio dealing with more complex or higher risk clients.

As part of the management team, your journey will continue via mentorship by the senior management team in both your local office and wider network to provide soft skills development such as more effective client management and staff management. Personal coaching will continue as your journey develops beyond formal qualifications which can be tailored to your own individual aspirations.
