Talentpool Selection has extensive experience of the recruitment and placement of tax specialists for Tax Manager opportunities for the commerce, industry and banking sectors in the UK tax market. We also have an extensive network amongst tax professionals in the leading accountancy firms (Big Four, Top 20) and have significant experience of recruiting Tax Managers into a select number of those firms.
Tax Manager positions in industry and across financial services cover a diverse range of roles, and covers technical disciplines including corporate tax, tax accounting & reporting, international tax, VAT & indirect taxes, transfer pricing, and employment taxes.
Typical backgrounds of a Tax Manager are corporate or indirect tax professionals with 5 or more years’ experience in tax, most likely with an ACA / ACCA qualification and tax training from a large accounting firm, then subsequently made the move into an in-house tax role. In terms of career progression, and depending on the size of the organisation, a Tax Manager will remain in the role described above for approx. 2-5 years before being considered for promotion to Senior Tax Manager level or to No2 to Head of Tax role or to a Group Tax Manager role, often leading to more people management responsibilities.
