Job description


Graduate Tax Advisor (1047)

The Role

Due to the growth of our Private Wealth division, we are looking to recruit a Graduate/Trainee Tax Advisor to join our friendly boutique accountancy and tax team based in Chichester.  Given the nature of the role, we will provide full study support for the CTA qualification.

The team deals with a wide range of work for its high net worth and global UK clients.  As part of a dynamic law firm we work closely with our lawyer colleagues, helping the firm’s clients with their tax compliance.

This would be a fantastic opportunity for a recent Graduate with a Tax or Accountancy related degree to embark on an exciting career in Tax.

You’ll be able to demonstrate an awareness of profitability and you will be expected to provide efficient, cost effective work using commercial software.  With full training provided, you will learn how to prepare annual self-assessment tax returns and non-resident capital gains returns, and provide advice, for a portfolio of clients.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and client focused individual to join the team dealing with complex self-assessment returns, advice and disclosures to HMRC.  Many clients will have an international aspect to their UK tax affairs.

You’ll be an exceptional communicator with the ability to provide professional tax advice to clients and colleagues across the firm as well as offering advice to a wide range of clients on income tax and capital gains tax.  You must be comfortable liaising with a range of third parties including financial advisors and trustees both in the UK and overseas.

Given the nature of the role, you will have excellent organisational skills and be able to adapt to rapidly changing schedules and priorities. Working as part of a team, you will be expected to draft tax returns and eventually review tax returns drafted by others; you will also demonstrate the ability to work on your own initiative, handling your own caseload and working to fee earning targets.

If you are looking for a new opportunity, we would love to hear from you.

The Benefits

In addition to your basic salary we have a competitive benefits package including pension, critical illness cover, health cash plan, death in service, discounted legal services, 25 days hols (this increases with length of service), discounted online shopping, discounted gym memberships and season ticket loans.
