MCS Group has an exciting opportunity for a Junior VAT Consultant who is interested in moving to Edinburgh. Join a world class financial organisation, focusing on high quality VAT advisory work and gaining excellent client exposure.

The Company:

This market leading financial organisation has seen huge success over the past two years, continually growing their client portfolio across UK and Ireland. This firm offers the best of both worlds – the exciting projects and opportunities of a large firm but within a smaller team environment where you will be acknowledged and recognised for your achievements. The senior management in this firm have been highly recognised by staff and clients as excellent mentors who will take the time to give you all of the skills and support you need to succeed.

The Role:

This specialised team, based in Edinburgh, covers a range of VAT compliance and consultancy work remotely across Scotland, England, and Northern Ireland.

  • You will be focusing on VAT consultancy, delivering high quality tax advice on all aspects of VAT issues, compliance, reviews, and due diligence.
  • You will be working closely with the other VAT practitioners and the VAT compliance team to assure a high level of service.
  • You will gain exposure to a variety of local and international clients from both the private and public sector.
  • You will build strong relationships with new and existing clients, identifying innovative solutions and business development opportunities.

The Person:

  • You must have previous experience working in tax and/or VAT with a good understanding of VAT principles.
  • Experience in an accountancy practice is ideal but candidates from other institutions that provide VAT services will also be considered.
  • You will ideally have a relevant tax qualification (ATT); however, candidates without this qualification will still be considered if they have relevant tax/VAT experience.

Key Benefits:

  • Competitive salary package based on experience.
  • Study support for further tax qualifications (ATT) if needed.
  • Varied workload with exciting ad-hoc projects and excellent client exposure.
  • Further training and professional development to assist with progression.

I am keen to have an initial discussion with anyone who feels this could potentially be of interest. Please contact Caroline Gaughan, Specialist Consultant at MCS Group or send an up to date CV via the link provided to speak further about this opportunity.
