VAT Manager

The firm, a highly reputable Top 20 Chartered Accountants, are looking for an experienced VAT specialist to join their Bristol based commercial VAT advisory team to work closely with the Director of VAT. The successful candidate will be someone who is ambitious and wants to progress joining initially as a Manager.

The Role

The role will provide an opportunity for the individual to work across a wide range of clients and individuals advising on many different aspects of VAT advisory, dispute resolution, transaction and liability matters.

Advice is provided through face to face meetings and via written correspondence to clients and the successful candidate will also be able to support internal partners and staff on a variety of different VAT issues.

This will be a challenging and interesting role dealing with representatives from different clients directly on a day to day basis. Strong interpersonal skills are therefore essential for the role as, while secondary to technical ability initially, they are critical to the development of the role.

With these in mind, the successful candidate will possess the following:

  • Experience of VAT across sectors and a good understanding of VAT principles
  • Have a commercial outlook when delivering advice and find opportunities to develop new business
  • Good client handling skills
  • Must be personable and able to explain complex issues in a way that non-VAT experts will understand - dealing directly with non-VAT partners and other technical staff
  • Must be able to demonstrate enthusiasm and motivation for selling services to existing clients of the firm and to non-clients, including taking responsibility for marketing projects
  • Experience of managing client engagements
  • Willingness to speak at seminars etc

The Team

The successful candidate would join a team of seven members of staff nationally; three partners, one director (based in Bristol), one senior manager, one assistant manager, and one senior. The group also has access to support staff.

You

Candidates will ideally be CTA qualified or be studying towards the final stages of the qualification. In addition, the candidate must have strong interpersonal skills and be confident in dealing with partners and clients, with the ability to work under pressure in a friendly environment.

The ideal candidate must have strong technical skills and experience and have a detailed up to date knowledge of VAT issues. Particular experience of land and property, partial exemption and business/non-business apportionments would be desirable.

They will also be pro-active in their approach to problem solving and technical research. Strong report writing skills and the ability to express ideas and simplify complex issues are essential, together with computer skills, particularly Excel.

In addition, they should possess the confidence and professionalism to establish credibility at all levels, be commercially minded and have a clear perception of client requirements and to ensure that service delivery is of the highest standard.

Salary/benefits

The firm offers a highly competitive and market leading benefits and remuneration package, which includes a dynamic and varied workload and excellent prospects for progression, performance-based bonus scheme, eligibility for the firm's Profit Sharing Plan which enables staff to share in the profits of the firm – just to name a few benefits.

If you would like to be considered for this role then please apply or contact Jodi King at AJ Chambers for more information.
