Senior Manager, Corporate Tax Compliance - Centre of Excellence

£Competitive

Birmingham

KPMG's Tax & Pensions practice is a dynamic and successful area of our business.
Our Tax Centre of Excellence (TCoE) has challenged and modernised the way that we deliver tax compliance services, by centralising the activities relating to the preparation and finalisation of tax computations and returns. Our vision is to build a more efficient and effective service for our clients.
Launched a year ago in KPMG Glasgow offices, the TCoE has proven a great success, so much so that we continue to expand our service offerings and will soon open a second satellite site in Birmingham. We are now looking for talented Tax Senior Managers with UK corporate tax experience to join us here.
We are offering part time roles with flexible working arrangements which include, annualised hours, early or late starts to fit around other commitments, shorter working days etc. We would be happy to discuss your own requirements and our range of flexible working arrangements in more detail, should that be of interest.
You will be able to demonstrate exceptional tax compliance skills, the ability to work to tight deadlines and produce a first class product ready for issue to our clients. This will involve working closely with tax professionals based in all of KPMG’s UK offices, along with our offshore partners (who manage processing aspects), to deliver a seamless service to our clients.
The corporate tax team based in the TCoE is an integral part of our overall offering to clients. The roles involve working on clients of all sizes (from mid-market to FTSE listed groups) and across a wide range of sectors.
We welcome applications from those qualified by experience, as well as ATT / CTA / ACA or equivalent qualifications.
