As a niche recruitment firm, we get to actively choose whom we represent.

This is one of those UK/US tax firms that we have a long relationship with and have successfully assisted dozens of US tax professionals move to and be promoted at.

I believe our client stands out from other US tax firms in London as being a strong independent firm (35+ years old), that specialises in the fast-moving US tax compliance field. Without being driven by red tape or excessive bureaucracy (due to optimum size & practised culture) this firm quickly became the largest independent US tax firm in Europe.

What’s in it for you?

  • An opportunity to join a multilingual team led by US CPAs and US attorneys with experience in Big 4 and Fortune 500 firms.
  • Awesome sport, charity & teambuilding days throughout the year.
  • The chance to join a very well-positioned firm in the UK/US market. Because of this, they’re able to offer faster career progression than most very large and small firms.
  • You’ll be given excellent study leave incentives, including full costs covered (ATT/EA/CTA etc.), generous exam pass bonuses, substantial study days and paid courses (in person and online).
  • With an established history of 36 years, you'd be joining a firm which has proven its ability to stand strong and grow in a competitive market.

Specifically, you’ll be:

  • Managing a large and varied portfolio of clients with complex US and/or UK tax affairs.
  • As a US/UK Tax Manager, you will be assisting with the management of all aspects of the tax compliance process and wider relationship management.
  • You will be given a client list to manage and support under the overall support of a Senior Manager.
  • Ensuring complex returns are accurately reviewed.
  • Offered a substantial amount of Advisory work (they're growing a new dedicated tax advisory team).
  • Working with Tax Associates and Senior Tax Associates to ensure work is appropriately delegated and client deadlines are met.

Job Requirements

  • 5-8 years US and UK (dual handler) individual tax experience; or US only individual tax experience; or US corporate tax experience with a Big 4 or boutique firm serving international clients
  • US CPA or Enrolled Agent. ATT is desirable for dual handler roles, but not essential.
  • Strong technical knowledge
  • Ability to work in the UK preferred, but not essential

This firm is excellently situated to help Individual UK/US (or just US) tax professionals looking to progress, both from either small boutique and Big 4 firms.
