Transaction Tax Manager- Edinburgh, Open to flexibility

The Transaction Tax team at EY is unique in having all transaction specialists in one place.  The team includes Corporate and Private Equity deal specialists, in addition to Restructuring and Fund/Management structuring specialists. 

This provides the team with a natural hedge against market turbulence with focus shifting between areas as the economic cycle develops, which also creates a greater degree of job security.  This structure also gives a unique development opportunity as team members have the option of experiencing a wide range of transaction related areas within the same team or specialising in one or more areas.  The team prides itself in flexibility of working - whether involving working in several areas or in working from home.

Transaction Tax works with clients of all sizes in all industries, working closely with the incredibly strong network of Transaction Tax teams around the world.  In this dynamic and fast-moving environment, individuals apply their skills to a variety of transactions, from acquisitions of small family-owned concerns to high-profile, newsworthy deals.
