Senior Tax Manager in Berkhamsted

Ten Percent Financial Recruitment

Reference: VAC-10402

A progressive and ambitious practice of Chartered Accountants with an established client base and an excellent local reputation are looking to recruit an ACA/ACCA qualified general practice specialist with at least 5 years practice experience to join their offices in Berkhamsted as a Senior Tax Manager, with prospects to partnership.

The firm have a wide-ranging client base and pride themselves on offering a high quality service, and are looking for someone with equally high standards and strong technical skills. You will be working alongside the senior partners and owner, assisting in all aspects of the running of this busy portfolio, but specialising in advising high net worth individuals with regards to inheritance tax and capital gains tax mitigation.

As well as managing your own client portfolio, you will manage a small team and contribute to a continued growth strategy for business working actively with the senior managers and owner. You will therefore have good coaching skills and be able to demonstrate strong technical and networking skills. There will be ample opportunity to get involved in business development, both with the existing client base and identifying and on boarding potential new clients. You should take pride in your work and seek to present a service to clients of the highest standards.

You will possess good interpersonal skills and be able to communicate effectively with clients, staff and management. You will be efficient with your time management and display reliability, organisational skills and motivation with the ability to work to a high standard unsupervised. An effective team member, with excellent attention to detail, you will be pro-active and commercially astute.

Since you will be taking on your own client portfolio, you will not need to have a fee following – although this would be an advantage, it is not a pre-requisite.

Salary Guide: £45,000 – £60,000 dependent on relevant experience plus profit share discussions, new client commission, private medical and pension.

When applying please specify:

  • Current salary and notice period.
  • Reasons for leaving your present role (if working).

After studying law at university she chucked it all in to move to Italy and teach Italian business people how to do their jobs in English.
