The role will allow you to develop and learn how to build such relationships whilst enhancing your own personal portfolio and networks.

This firm is currently investing heavily in the regional hub of their FS tax practice as they are seeing strong market demand and need additional resource to maximise on the opportunity to grow the practice further.

• Ad hoc advisory projects;
• Proactively managing client and statutory deadlines, billing requirements and delegating effectively to your team.
• Active involvement in cross service line FS community events;
• Input into market facing events on both an account and wider team basis.
