Transaction Tax Assistant Manager

Cooper Parry Birmingham

Job description

Are you working in corporate finance, audit or a more general tax role and looking for a career change? Whether you are part qualified or currently working as a Senior / Assistant Manager in another team, we want to hear from you.

The Transaction Tax (TT) team are in ‘growth mode’ as we look to become the number 1 TT team advising owner-managed and mid-market businesses across the UK.

In the last 3 years, we’ve won Regional Tax Team of the Year and the Best Tax Employer at the Tolley’s Tax Awards. Why? Because we are leaving the dull old ways of accountancy behind, making our own rules, and always putting our people at the heart of our success.

If you are ambitious, passionate and would find it a thrill to see deals that you have worked on in the news… make sure you read on!

A day in the life of a Transaction Tax Assistant Manager…

  • Provide advice and answers to technical queries, complete buy-side tax due diligence, sell-side advice to entrepreneurs/companies, buy and sell-side structuring (often with international aspects) and everything in between
  • Support businesses achieving their own growth journey, and in particular OMBs as they aim to grow on an international stage and ultimately look to exit
  • Work closely with Partners and Directors across the firm to support growth and advancement of the team as a whole

We expect an “all in” attitude to building the business, driven by a passion and desire to be recognised as the best TT team in the Owner Managed and Mid-Market space, within the best company to work for in Europe (we don’t think small!).

What you'll need...

  • Experience in advising companies or individuals (or both!), whether in audit, corporate finance or tax
  • Either nearly qualified or full qualified ATT
  • Exceptional ability to absorb, understand and explain technical concepts
