The opportunity

The London Indirect Tax Team has grown rapidly over the last 5 years and to continue that growth needs high calibre additional resource at Consultant 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 in high profile cases early on in your career and expand your horizons.

The TMT team sits within the Indirect Tax group and focuses on the Telecoms, Media and Technology sectors.  Members have deep industry knowledge and a wealth of experience, in providing to clients, tailored and practical advice on the application of VAT rules in relation to complex transactions and arrangements.  Our work is typically global in nature due to the types of clients we work with.   

The team advises a wide range of clients across the three sectors ranging from publishers, social media, marketplaces, gaming, mobile operators, ERP providers, hardware manufacturers etc.  Keeping abreast of all relevant VAT issues and developments that clients are most concerned with, it also works closely with trade bodies as well as 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 colleagues the chance to broaden their knowledge and interact with the Deloitte global network regularly. Members will expect to work with all other people in the team, often reporting direct to Partners.

Role description

Working in the Technology, Media, Telecoms team will present any new member with the opportunity to become involved in challenging and interesting work, where innovation is welcomed and team spirit vibrant.  Due to the nature of our clients businesses, often the issues have not been previously considered as the client offering is at the cutting edge of technology.  

Your skill set will be enhanced with us as you work across our diverse team. From an early stage you will find that work is pushed down from our partners to the team providing you with the opportunity to take on responsibility earlier in your career. 

As you are given the autonomy to establish your own contacts within a client and reach your own solutions your independence will be accelerated.  It is up to you to take this independence and build your own network. Whilst autonomy is encouraged the team network will always be there for if and when you need support and advice.
