Your opportunity

If you are looking for a stimulating role in tax, you want to be part of a thriving team and believe a multinational organisation can offer you the breadth and depth of experience you are looking for? If this rings true, then joining our expert in-house tax delivery team could be the role for you.

Your role

With a clear focus on supporting colleagues across the business, you will be asked to provide tax compliance services on a whole range of subjects including personal tax, international tax, benefits reporting and social security. Dealing with a blend of routine compliance and more complex ad-hoc queries will require a sharp mind and an eye for detail. You’ll need to use your initiative, be flexible in your approach and be highly organised to meet your individual and team objectives efficiently. The ability to deliver results accurately and on time will be key.

Your work, your choice

Full Time – Permanent Role. Agile working is supported.
How long does impact take? How long is a piece of string? How many seconds does a solution contain? How can we possibly tell? After all, impact can be huge or small. Immediate or years in the making. At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk.
We, therefore, carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. If the working pattern you are looking for is not specifically indicated below, we are happy to discuss alternative arrangements.

Location: The Milton Keynes office is a modern service centre which provides many of the central functions essential to making our business successful, including Finance, Management Information, HR and IT.

Your professional experience

You will need to be proficient in the use of Microsoft office. You should be a team player and confident that you can communicate professionally on all levels as well as the following:

  • ATT qualified or equivalent experience
  • Experience of preparing Self-Assessment returns
  • Ensure deadlines are met and accurate records are kept
  • Undertake technical research where required
  • Develop efficiencies and generally improve process and procedures where possible
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Good attention to detail
  • Flexible and adaptable approach to work
  • Ability to plan and manage own workload
