Job Description

Our client is a genuinely unique firm of accountants as they attend to the affairs and provide niche specialist advice to many high-profile clients in the International entertainment, media and sports industry sectors. Also with many clients in other different sectors, this client portfolio provides amazing opportunities for the right person to develop specialist skills and experience, an opportunity that would not exist in most other accountancy & tax advisory practices.

Due to continued organic growth, they seek an experienced Tax Manager to join their expanding tax team. From the outset you will be given the responsibility of managing your own portfolio and client relationships.

The role would comprise both the tax advisory work and an element of compliance as a result of overseeing the private client compliance work within your portfolio, which would be prepared by junior members of the team. There will also be opportunities to get involved with various other aspects of tax advice, including general private client tax planning and corporate tax transactions.

This role would be suited to CTA (or equivalent) qualified individuals. A private client tax background is preferable and any corporate tax knowledge would also be helpful (but not essential).

A clear pathway of progression is on offer and there are no barriers to promotion for the right person. My client is seeking to recruit an individual who will be with the business in the long term.


  • Dealing with complex tax matters and providing clear concise advice to clients
  • Managing a portfolio of clients and taking responsibility ensure any compliance deadlines are met and work completed to a high standard

  • Being able to manage and navigate HMRC enquiries on behalf of clients
  • Providing guidance and assistance to junior members of the team, where needed
  • Responsibility for the billing of clients within your portfolio, and associated debt collection.
  • Involvement with Business Development opportunities, and internal Tax Technical Training sessions.


  • This role would be suited to CTA (or equivalent) qualified individuals as well as those deemed qualified by experience
  • Due to the nature of the clients, a private client background would be preferable, any corporate tax knowledge would be helpful but is by no means essential
  • Previous experience working in a professional services organisation, ideally as a Tax Manager - Personal, Private Client or Mixed tax - although candidates at the Assistant Manager, Senior or Executive level will also be considered
  • Experience in reviewing self-assessment tax returns
  • Experience managing a portfolio of clients
  • Ability to undertake tax research and reach conclusions in order to communicate complex concepts to clients.
  • Proven track record of developing and managing staff
  • Excellent teamwork, interpersonal and communication skills
  • Very organised in order to keep on top of workloads, including monitoring time charges and budgets.

What's on offer:

  • Competitive salary
  • Flexible / hybrid working from home
  • A clear pathway of progression
  • Bonus Scheme
  • Pension Scheme
  • Private medical insurance
  • Health plan benefits
  • Mobile phone
