Constant change? No worries, we’ve got this.

Your next tax job move could see you join our 40-strong team. We offer specialist tax advice spanning corporate transactions and restructuring, property and wealth, international trade, innovation, employer solutions and tax investigations.

Our tax jobs are challenging and varied, keeping us interested and support is always on hand from the team.

Our tax practice also supports colleagues across other teams. You’ll get to work with colleagues across the practice and be exposed to all the different areas of tax.

In the real world we’re based across eight offices and all team members are encouraged to attend their local office at least once a week. This, along with regular team socials, helps to create a sense of belonging. That said you can attend the office as much as you like and our trainees tend to attend several days per week as they are learning on the job.

Many of the firm’s tax trainees join us for a placement as part of their trainee rotation programme. We also support through CTA and a range of on the job training.

Our tax jobs offer a clear path for progression from trainee to senior management levels. The firm supports specialist training to develop specific skills and, in some cases, the potential to work towards developing your own business unit.

Absolutely! We want this to be so much more than a taxation job. We have regular local socials and twice yearly regional socials, based around fun activities or food! We also hold an annual full team off-site gathering, which includes a conference, teambuilding activities, an evening meal and overnight stay. There are also organised charity volunteering days and team members can attend to one each year in lieu of working.

When you take a trainee job with us, the firm pays for all your training and examinations.

As a graduate tax trainee, you’ll study towards the Chartered Tax Advisor, or ATT/CTA qualification. You’ll spend 20% of your time with Tolley Taxation, the leading tax training provider. Training will be in blocks of three to five days at a time. This may require you to stay overnight at times. You are also expected to do at least 10 hours of independent study per week in your own time – most trainees find they need to do more when revising for exams.

The Chartered Tax Advisor pathway (ATT/CTA) is a level seven qualification and takes three years to complete. See Tolley’s website for the current list of tax exams.
