Your new company
A leading professional services firm in Belfast who are experiencing substantial growth within their Multinational Tax Team.

Your new role

The opportunity is for a technical specialist in US GAAP and / or IFRS tax reporting to provide compliance and advisory services. You will support clients in their quarterly reporting process and have the opportunity to grow a tax accounting advisory book of business.
The tax accounting portfolio will be complimented by multi-country direct tax portfolio where you will be the client's primary point of contact. You will be sharing insights from their direct tax data across countries, major legislative changes which need to be planned for and tax opportunities which could deliver value.

What you'll need to succeed

My client is looking for a deep technical specialist to join their Tax Accounting team to help grow the tax accounting advisory book of business and develop others in the team. Key skills which will enable you to be successful in this role include:
  • Extensive experience in US GAAP and / or IFRS tax accounting projects
  • Self-aware and accountable - the ability to manage your portfolio and bring in other specialists when required
  • Corporate income tax experience (any country)

  • Organised with an ability to deliver tax accounting in a short timeframe
  • Experience coaching and developing junior staff

  • Ability to manage budgets and time to deliver a quality output
  • Accounting qualification
  • Willing to travel

You will have an opportunity to work with some of my client's largest, most complex corporate clients providing you with a continued opportunity to learn and develop. Their clients operate in all business sectors with the exception of financial services. There is an opportunity for you to specialise in a sector or gain experience of different sector needs.

What you'll get in return

My client is offering a competitive remuneration package where you'll be rewarded for your individual and team performance. Their comprehensive rewards package includes support for flexible working and career development, and with their flexible benefits you can select benefits that suit your needs, covering holidays, health and well-being, insurance, savings and a wide range of discounts, offers and promotions.

Plus, they offer:
  • Support, coaching and feedback from some of the most engaging colleagues around
  • Opportunities to develop new skills and progress your career
  • The freedom and flexibility to handle your role in a way that's right for you

My client is committed to being an inclusive employer and are happy to consider flexible working arrangements. They strive to achieve the right balance for their people, enabling them to deliver excellent client service whilst allowing you to build your career without sacrificing your personal priorities. While their client-facing professionals can be required to travel regularly, and at times be based at client sites, our flexible working arrangements can help you to achieve a lifestyle balance

As well as offering world-class technical training opportunities you will have the opportunity to stretch and challenge yourself with new clients, experiences and projects.
You will join a team with technology implementation experience, robotic process automation skills, visualisation and analytic capabilities amongst other varied relevant skills. Your opportunity to gain greater exposure to these topics and potentially learn yourself will be open to you as you develop your career journey.
As well as learning technical skills yourself, you will be a role model for our junior staff as you manage teams to deliver exceptional client service. You will have daily opportunities to coach and develop those around you and make a difference to their careers.
