As a Senior Associate in the team, you will get exposure of working directly with the group tax function and support them in managing tax risks in their business.  The role is highly practical and commercial.  You will have an opportunity to use your tax accounting and tax compliance skills on a day-to-day basis. 
You will support clients in managing their global tax compliance, delivering their interim group tax reporting and embedding processes to identify tax risk.  You will have an opportunity to support clients on process improvement as well as driving process improvement in EY.  



Our team
You will join the GCR practice in the ETC which includes 150 professionals specializing in direct tax, tax accounting, indirect taxes, statutory reporting, bookkeeping, service management, payroll and company secretarial services.
The team is based across the EMEIA region with major hubs in the UK, Belgium, Netherlands and Poland.  Together we deploy strong multi-skilled teams working seamlessly across countries and service lines.
