Consultant/Associate Director, Indirect Tax, Open to flexible working & returners
The Indirect Tax Team has grown rapidly over the last 5 years and to continue that growth needs high calibre additional resource at Consultant and Associate Director level. Our team is regarded within the firm as one of the leading and most successful service lines, with a reputation for being proactive, entrepreneurial, successful and fun to work with. We reward our employees on merit and not time served. Working for us will present you with the opportunity to get involved with high profile clients and expand your horizons.
The Indirect Tax group works with clients across a number of industries including Financial Services, Real Estate, Public Sector, Consumer Business, Energy and Technology, Media and Telecoms. Working in the advisory team you will get exposure to a variety of projects including multi-million pound property transactions, international supply chain structuring, corporate transactions and advising around the impact of topical developments such as Brexit and Making Tax Digital for VAT.
Keeping abreast of all relevant Indirect Tax issues and developments that clients are most concerned with, the team is also frequently dealing with HM Treasury and HM Revenue & Customs, acting on behalf of clients and in the course of consultations. Consistent with its clients’ operations, the work is often global in nature and provides the chance to broaden knowledge and interact with the Deloitte global network regularly.
Are you looking to return to the workplace after an extended career break?
For this role we can offer coaching and support designed for returners to refresh your knowledge and skills, and help your transition back into the workplace after a career break of 2 years or more. If this is relevant for you, just let your recruiter know when you make your application.
Working in Deloitte’s indirect tax team will present any new member with the opportunity to become involved in challenging and interesting work, where innovation is welcomed and team spirit is vibrant and sociable.

This may include collaborating and working with our specialist Global Trade Advisory, Compliance and Technology and Litigation, Advisory and Settlement teams depending on your own interests and those of your clients.
As you are given the autonomy to establish your own contacts within a client and reach your own solutions your independence will be accelerated.

You will have responsibility for:
- Assisting with deepening relationships with target accounts, contributing to winning new work
- Working on existing client engagements, regularly reporting direct to a director or partner

Regulation and controls are standard practice in our industry and Deloitte is no exception. These controls provide important legal protection for both you and the firm. We are subject to a number of audit regulations, one of which requires that certain colleagues abide by specific personal independence constraints. This can mean that you and your "Immediate Family Members" are not permitted to hold certain financial interests (shares, funds, bonds etc.) with audit clients of the firm. The recruitment team will provide further detail as you progress through the recruitment process.
