Head of Tax


Ref: RM51415

£80,000 - £85,000 + benefits

Our client is a household name, omni-channel retailer with a strong brand, loyal customer base and high-quality management team. With UK, US and broader international operations, the business has achieved significant growth over the last 3 years and continues to go from strength to strength. Today the business has 1000 employees in the UK, revenues approaching £400m and is debt free.


We are now looking to recruit a high-quality Head of Tax to join the existing finance team. You will report directly to the Finance Director, with a dotted line into the CFO, and work closely with other key stakeholders across the business. As the Head of Tax, you will lead on all areas of tax compliance and reporting, tax planning and risk, as well as advising business units on various tax adjustments and advantages. The incoming person will also be responsible for helping the business transition itself through the Brexit process and this individual must be adept at transfer pricing. 


The successful candidate is likely to be a qualified accountant or CTA and must be comfortable interacting with key stakeholders. There is a strong preference for experience within a dynamic and fast moving retail/ecommerce business, but candidates will also be considered coming straight from the Tax team of an international Accountancy firm. In addition, candidates looking for part-time might be considered. This is a crucial role for the company and one in which the incoming candidate can make a real impact and contribute commercially to the future plans of the business.

To apply for this role, please press the Apply button.

Please note that due to the expected volume of applications, we will only be able to respond to those candidates whose experience matches the requirements of our client. We are sorry, but if you have not heard from us within the next ten days, please assume you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.
