We’ll help you succeed

BDO’s Corporate International Tax practice is a dynamic and successful area of our business.  With international taxes being an increasingly high profile field, and with nearly all businesses now having an international footprint, we can offer an exciting and broad range of quality career paths for ambitious people.

This role will provide corporate tax compliance, advisory and accounting services to a range of clients across all lines of the sector.  Clients include FTSE companies, AIM listed companies, and private equity backed as well as privately owned businesses.


The primary responsibility will involve working, and developing relationships, with clients to advise on corporate planning and restructuring projects both in the UK and internationally, as well as producing complex UK tax computations and returns.

This is essential due to the size and nature of the team. Furthermore, the individual will be expected to be able to consider and highlight further opportunities to develop new work.

  • Significant understanding of and previous experience within corporate tax compliance
  • Significant experience of providing corporate tax advisory and compliance services to a variety of clients
  • Ability to manage the successful delivery of commercially viable and technically excellent advice to a variety of clients involving tax due diligence, structuring, international and other advisory work and including liaising with specialists in other tax teams and overseas BDO offices to manage their input
  • Ability to undertake tax audits for clients under UK GAAP, IFRS and US GAAP
  • Ability to prepare proposals for new work, including researching target client companies and on technical issues to identify new solutions
  • Experience of managing staff
  • Ability to actively seek opportunities for selling new services to existing clients
  • Educated to degree level, and CTA and/or ACA qualified or equivalent
