BDO supports all kinds of different businesses in different sectors across the UK and around the world.  You’ll be providing Tax Advisory services to start-ups and scale-ups, to private businesses and FTSE listed multinationals.  Each of our clients has different needs and in applying your expertise in different contexts, you’ll develop your skills and gain valuable experience that will serve you throughout your career.

We’ll help you succeed

Our clients trust us because of the quality of our advice.  That quality grows from a thorough understanding of their business, and that understanding comes from working closely with clients and building long-lasting relationships.

This role will provide Tax advisory and compliance services to a wide range of private owned companies, including those backed by private equity, and assisting private equity investors manage the structuring, purchase and sale of their investments. There will, therefore, be lots of variety and opportunity to learn and develop.  The primary responsibility will be to deal with all matters relating to the management of a varied portfolio of clients.  You will also provide assistance to Director/Principals/Partners in both client work and in the management of the group and on occasions the practice.  The role will involve challenging and varied advisory work, working alongside specialist tax colleagues and together with those in other audit and advisory streams. A key part of the role requires the individual to actively seek, and keep the Partner informed about, any new business opportunities arising on existing and new clients.

We're looking for someone with:

  • An in depth, up to date, knowledge of taxation issues facing privately owned businesses, in particular in respect of advising on corporate transactions/reorganisations and shareholder interactions

  • A strong desire to increase/build your knowledge of taxation of Private Equity investments – existing experience would be preferable but not essential

  • Project and staff management experience

  • Ability to manage a substantial client portfolio profitably whilst being able to actively seek opportunities for developing new clients and for selling new services to existing clients

  • Experience of dealing with client senior management

  • Educated to degree level and/or CTA and/or ACA qualified or equivalent

You’ll also be yourself; we’ll recognise and value you for who you are and celebrate and reward your contributions to the business.  We’re committed to agile working, and we offer everyone the opportunity to work in ways that suit them, their teams, and the task in hand.

At BDO, we’ll help you achieve your personal goals and career ambitions, and we have programmes, resources, and frameworks that provide clarity and structure around career development.
