Service Line InformationKPMG's Tax practice is a dynamic and successful area of our business. A constantly changing and increasingly high-profile field, Tax can offer a surprisingly broad range of quality career paths to ambitious people.

Working in the Corporate Tax department at KPMG will give you the opportunity to develop relationships with clients as you help manage the amount of corporation tax they need to pay. This involves working with clients to produce complex tax computations and returns for HM Revenue & Customs, giving advice on corporate planning and restructuring projects and finding ways to reduce their effective rate of tax.

Job DescriptionTax Management Consulting - Assistant Manager

At KPMG, our values define who we are and the way we do business. As a leading professional services firm, we know that our strength and capability come from our people – their different perspectives, experiences and backgrounds. From our inclusive leadership strategy to our diversity and inclusion targets – we’re making bold changes to who we are and what we do. Be part of it.

Tax Management Consulting (TMC) is one of KPMG’s priority service lines and due to the exciting growth the team is experiencing, an opportunity has arisen for a Manager to run delivery, grow and maintain existing and new client relationships, and assist in winning new engagements, with a Financial Sector focus.

The TMC practice assists clients to operationalise their tax function. This service line has become a focus area for companies as tax administrations have moved towards a risk based approach and companies’ tax profiles and reputations have come under increasing public scrutiny. Our team works with clients to ensure their tax function is efficient, effective and fit for purpose.

The Role

The role has a Financial Sector focus, although Financial Sector experience is not a prerequisite at this level. The candidate will be delivering work across a portfolio of clients, and will support client service teams delivering specialist advice. The candidate will also assist in winning new work by supporting identified opportunities.

The role will provide plenty of opportunity to interact with clients and the wider tax, audit and advisory teams across the firm.

We are currently recruiting staff to focus on Financial Services clients, although the wider team provides services to clients across all sectors from the largest FTSE’s (primarily Financial Services) to mid-market companies.


The successful candidate must have experience of the following responsibilities:

- Assisting in the provision of tax input into Finance transformations
- Inputting into projects to support clients’ tax operating models and building continuous improvement programmes
- Supporting Senior Managers and Managers to implement tax governance structures across a client’s business
- Assisting with outsourced internal audits of tax functions
- Assisting in designing and implementing tax process and controls
- Researching tax technology solutions and providing implementation support
- Supporting on the operational aspects of Country by Country reporting
