Job Description

A glimpse into the tax associate role

As tax legislation is becoming increasingly complex, our clients need to understand how the evolving tax environment impacts their situation. As a tax associate, you will help our clients manage their tax affairs, both corporate and personal, to ensure they stay ahead of the changing legislation, identify tax planning opportunities and minimise risk.


The Programme

Our Tax Trainee programme is designed to give you the qualifications, skills and experiences you need to embark on a rewarding career within Tax.

  • Graduate Programme

You will study towards a joint ACA/CTA career pathway. These qualifications will give you the technical expertise and insight to advise our clients.


During this fixed term training programme your role will be split, working with both our Private and Corporate clients.

The Private Client Tax work will involve advising on individuals’ personal tax affairs, compliance obligations and planning opportunities. We work with a range of individuals, from wealthy non-domiciled individuals to entrepreneurs and business owners. We provide consulting advice in numerous spaces, with a particular focus on global mobility, business exits, inheritance tax and remittance basis planning.

The Corporate Tax work will involve working closely with our Audit and Accounts department to prepare Tax provisions, finalising these provisions and preparing Corporation Tax Returns, ad-hoc tax compliance work such as the preparation of Employee Related Securities Returns as well as assisting with advisory services on numerous matters. We work with an exciting range of Companies varying in both size and industry so everyday is different.

In addition, there will also be opportunities to develop a better understanding in other areas of Taxation and to work closely with our VAT team and our overseas offices.

This varied experience will allow you to gain exceptional insight into Taxation.


Qualification Pathways
