A brilliant opportunity has arisen at a Top 10 firm based in London for a VAT Assistant Manager/Manager. Working directly with the partner and senior members of staff, the VAT specialist will be a valuable member of the tax business from day one and will fast become one of the 'go to' person within this firm for VAT queries.

With such a varied client base, the ideal candidate will have a wide exposure to VAT. As this is an advisory role, a pragmatic and commercial approach to your working day is a must!

- Strong technical background within VAT

- Know how to take on technical challenges and able to explain complex issues in a way nonVAT experts will understand
