Job Details

Senior Reward Manager - Tax - Big Four firm - Big 4 - Permanent - Flexible location - Hybrid - Consulting

Your new company

This Big Four firm operates in over 100 countries and collectively employs more than 200,000 people, serving the needs of business, governments, public-sector agencies, not-for-profits and through audit and assurance practices, the capital markets.

Your new role

We are looking for an ambitious Senior Manager to join our ERS Tax Central Technical knowledge team. We are open to consider applicants from across the UK and offer a hybrid working model. Applicants should have employment tax experience, a genuine interest in government tax policy, and be passionate about making a difference to how the ERS Tax Central Technical team builds and manages its tax knowledge.

Responsibilities include:

* Helping to prepare and maintain issues led material with a commercial focus such as Internal Briefing Notes and technical analysis that consolidate the firm's technical knowledge on specific topics;
* Developing deep expertise in specific subject matter areas thereby becoming a 'Subject Matter Expert';
* Producing curated summaries of technical materials and issues-led connected tax advisory content spanning different areas of our tax practice ;
* Producing commercially relevant digital training materials on tax technical topics;
* Drafting articles on developments for internal and external audiences including material published in our external publications
* Involvement in the Tax Policy Cycle (e.g., UK and devolved Budgets and draft legislation) analysis and workstreams that arise from this;
* Drafting responses to HMT/HMRC consultations on new proposals;
* Supporting knowledge management and transfer initiatives;
* Responding to ad hoc technical queries; and
* Attending technical meetings and forums, and summarising key points to share more widely.

What you'll need to succeed

The successful candidate will ideally:

* Be technically qualified (e.g., CTA/ICAS/ICAEW or a solicitor with relevant tax experience) with client-facing experience in employment taxes;
* Have strong attention to detail and high personal standards for delivering high quality work on time;
* Have a real interest in tax and the potential implications for us and our clients of the developments and changes that take place;
* Enjoy researching and analysing tax law and cases;
* Be able to understand complex tax technical issues quickly, to a level where they can communicate them clearly to audiences of differing experience and expertise;
* Be highly self-motivated - very few knowledge tasks have 'hard' deadlines in the same way as client work, so our team members have to be able to push themselves to deliver output efficiently and then move on to new tasks;
* Be independent - whilst this role will be supported guidance and supervision from more senior colleagues, the successful candidate will be able to self-manage to deliver high quality work on time;
* Be proactive in seeking guidance as required, seeking new challenges and supporting others in the team;
* Have strong communication skills in a variety of media, including being able to explain complex concepts in a straightforward way and adapt communication style to suit the audience - strong written communication skills are essential to the role;
* Be confident in dealing with personnel at all levels;
* Be positive and enthusiastic about sharing knowledge and promoting good communication; and
* Have a good working knowledge of Word, Excel and PowerPoint and able to produce professional looking documents independently.
* We are open to applicants from across the UK and offer a hybrid working model

What you'll get in return

* A fulfilling and ambitious career at a leading Big Four firm
* A sustainable work-life balance: flexible working, hybrid with 2 days in office p/w
* Private medical, generous pension, and annual bonus ~12%
* £5.5k cash allowance
* Signing on bonus negotiable if walking away from bonuses at current employer
* The firm backdated inflation rises to April ensure salaries kept up with rises in cost of living
* We encourage our team members to develop and maintain specialisms across their broad range of work
* A growing team that is expanding its offering to clients
* Flexible working options available.
