Lifecycle of a Tax Trainee

The beginning of your training contract will equip you with the technical skills and knowledge in order to become an excellent professional in your field. You will assist other members of the tax team on the compliance side of tax related work while also learning the legislation and becoming familiar with a large spectrum of clients. As you progress you will gradually gain more responsibility for elements of each assignment and begin to play a more central role. This will eventually lead you to managing a portfolio of clients and will be the lead contact on many assignments.

The Ideal Candidate

We are looking for high achievers with an honours degree. We will accept graduate applications from a range of different backgrounds and are looking for smart, interesting people who will enjoy working with us. While your academic background is of course relevant - you may have a degree in engineering, business, law, IT, science or economics - what’s important is that you bring to the firm a willingness to learn and apply your skills in the best way possible. We can teach you the technical and business skills you require, but you also need energy and the right attitude to succeed.
