VAT Manager

Salary: £60,000 - £70,000

Location: Manchester

Duration: Permanent

Sellick Partnership has been engaged to recruit a VAT Manager for a reputable and growing market leading legal firm based in Manchester city centre. With a global presence and innovative approach coupled with a collaborative culture, this is an exciting opportunity to join a growing and thriving tax team who puts employee development at the forefront of their values. There are further ambitious plans to grow the business over the next few years both organically and through acquisitions, whilst at the same time making improvements to their current infrastructure.

We are looking to recruit a high calibre and ambitious individual who has a mix of VAT advisory, compliance and process improvement and is keen to maintain / develop your wider direct tax skills. You will build a business partner style relationship with contacts in the business and become the main point of contact for all VAT queries.

The main responsibility of this role is providing VAT reporting for the UK Group and support to the business but you will also have the opportunity to grow and develop your tax skills more widely in the direct / international tax arenas.

You will need strong organisational and analytical skills in order to adhere to the pressure of reporting / VAT deadlines. Experience of managing indirect taxes across international jurisdictions, optimising VAT cash flows and sector-specific matters (e.g. disbursements) is desirable, but not essential. You should have the ability to work in a fast moving tax / finance team.

The successful applicant will have experience working in a similar role gained in a fast-paced and demanding commercial environment and hold a recognised professional accounting (ACA or ACCA or CIMA) or tax (CTA) qualification.

You will need to be driven, inquisitive and have a desire to succeed and improve. This is a very exciting opportunity for an ambitious and passionate individual to forge a career in a highly successful developing business. You can expect to progress quickly within the organisation if performing well within the role and adding value.

You will possess a high level of attention to detail as well as excellent organisational, communication and time management skills with experience of meeting targets and deadlines. Strong IT skills, particularly in the use of Microsoft Excel, would be advantageous.

The business welcomes applications from people looking for a flexible or partly agile role and are happy to explore your preferred working patterns as part of your application. But most importantly, the business wants you to feel valued and rewarded by your time. They understand the importance of offering you a reward package that goes beyond simply salary. That's why you will be given a choice. You can pick from a range of benefits, allowing you to build a package that suits your needs and lifestyle, as well as those of your family. In addition to their standard benefits (medical insurance, life insurance, pension and 25 days annual leave), they offer flexible benefits which include season ticket loans, gym memberships, health assessments, cycle to work, retail vouchers, a buy as you earn share scheme and dining cards. You will also have access to additional wellbeing programs such as an online GP and an Employee Assistance Programme.

If you consider yourself to be a committed, career driven professional who can demonstrate the above experience and who would welcome the stimulus of this finance post then we would be pleased to hear from you.

If you would like to apply for this role or would like to find out more, please apply online or contact Jonathan Moss at Sellick Partnership on 0161 834 1642.
