Tax Trainee - Birmingham

A Top 20 firm are looking to recruit high calibre people with the skills, knowledge and commitment to meet the demands of the business. The graduate programme is a structured training programme combining practical experience with technical studies, as well as providing numerous opportunities to increase your skill set with internal courses ranging from personal impact and negotiation skills to time management to delivering presentations.

The Business Tax team provides tax and consulting services to a wide range of companies, from large multinational groups to owner-managed businesses. Their tax advice is designed to meet clients' agreed commercial objectives considering all relevant taxes, not only corporation tax.

Working closely with the senior tax professionals, you’ll feel yourself improving day by day as they teach you the intricacies of their trade. One moment you could be helping a small business ensure they are tax compliant; the next, you could be learning the complex, but fascinating cross-border considerations of international tax.

  • Demonstrate an ability to communicate clearly both verbally and in writing

Training and development provided in the first few years:
  • During your training contract you will study towards the Associate Chartered Accountant (ACA) & Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) joint qualification.
  • In the first year this could mean anything from HM Revenue & Customs liaison to ad hoc research for partners, by the second year you will be managing your own clients.

Academic requirements:
  • Must have or be on course for at least an upper second class honours degree in any discipline
  • 300 UCAS points (or equivalent) in your top three A-levels (excluding General Studies)
