THG Tax Graduate/Trainee

Cooper Parry London

Job description

Want to start an exciting new career in Summer 2024?

Do you have an interest in emerging technologies and how it is shaping the future?

Can you imagine working with rapidly growing start-ups and scaleups in the tech sector?

Keen to continue studying and gain a professional qualification?

We aren’t your usual Tax team - we are part of the Tech & High Growth team in Broadgate, London, working together as a unit to put fast scaling companies in the best position to fly! We see our clients’ success as our success, and we are looking for people just as ambitious as us to join the THG family.

About the role…..

You will be working with some of the fastest growing, best funded scaleups in the UK: tech and consumer businesses that are flying and need our help. We support the founders and the finance teams in these companies to deal with the challenges of rapid expansion.

Day to day you can expect:

  • Working in small teams to really understand our clients and what they want to achieve. Then advising them on how to get there.
  • Turning complex jargon into simple terms and actions for our brilliant clients.
  • Making sure our clients are compliant by preparing and submitting their tax returns.
  • Liaising with HMRC about tax returns and tax reliefs.
  • Generating new ideas, solutions and spotting opportunities to enhance our client offering.
  • Studying for your ATT/CTA or ACA/CTA joint qualifications and keeping up to date with changes to legislation and the impact they may have on our clients.
  • Supporting and coaching other trainees as you progress - going on to own a small portfolio of clients.
  • We’ll make sure you’re challenged and supported every step of the way with your career development.

What we're looking for....

You need great attention to detail, a passion for numbers and a knack for following processes within guidelines. A major part of our work is client facing, so you need to be comfortable approaching clients and asking questions. You need to be curious about growth companies and see our work as part of their success.

  • Able to demonstrate a keen interest in working with Tech & High Growth companies
  • Like working to pace with an insatiable hunger to succeed
  • Able to deliver a brilliant client experience through clear effective communication
  • Want to stretch themselves and go above and beyond the norm
  • Great attention to detail, a passion for numbers and a knack for following processes within guidelines.
  • Comfortable approaching clients and asking questions.
  • Curious about growth companies and see our work as part of their success.

A bit about CP...

We’re no ordinary firm of accountants and business advisers. And this means we don’t give ordinary advice. We work with privately owned, not for profit and multi-national businesses across the UK to help them become more aware of their financial position, become more financially efficient, help them grow and much more.

We’re straight-talking and put people and relationships before products and services. This is what’s made us the fastest growing firm of accountants in the UK... and our vision is to continue. In 2022 & already in 2023, we achieved some fantastic feats, and we couldn't be more over the moon!

  • Partnered with Waterland Private Equity since July 2022, and are now on a lightning-fast growth journey
  • Ranked No.1 in the Accountancy Age Mid-Tier Power Index
  • Placed Top 3 in the mid-size category at the Inspiring Workplace Awards
  • Achieved 13th overall at the Inspiring Workplace Awards, against all businesses of all sizes across Europe, Middle East & Africa
  • Recently became B Corp certified! Measuring and improving our impact beyond business for a brighter tomorrow

What's in it for you...

We have always believed in trusting our people to make the right decisions for themselves. From how you dress, to where you work and how often you take holiday. We give our people the opportunity to work flexibly, as well as the trust and accountability to deliver.

We put our people at the heart of our culture. If our people love working here then they do amazing work, that’s why we offer things like:

  • Empowered and entrusted to do what you do best
  • An amazing wellbeing offering to support your physical, mental, spiritual, and financial health
  • Volunteering opportunities to work closer with local communities and charities
  • Open holidays
  • Robust support to see you through your qualification
  • A flexible approach to work balancing working from home, in office or with clients
  • Cooper Parry social/sports clubs
  • Alongside an array of benefits and perks all nicely packaged on our CP Pay & Perks platform

The start date for this role is the 27th August 2024.

We know everyone performs their best when they feel welcomed and supported to bring their whole selves to work. As an equal opportunities’ employer, we will work with you to ensure you have all you need to achieve your best.

Still not sure if CP is for you? Here’s what Harvey, who joined us as a Tax Graduate this summer, thinks -

“The one thing that really stood out to me about Cooper Parry, was that from the top down the company was run by forward thinking people that challenged the status-quo. Within the world on Finance & Accounting this was extremely refreshing to see, and I wanted to be part of THE next generation firm."
