Job Description
Senior Manager - Employment Tax

Our People Services team advises employers on the cost, risk and reward associated with tax. As you would expect, this involves detailed tax advice and compliance - what you might not expect is the diversity of skills within our team, which range from tax, pensions and executive reward through to HR, technology and benefits. We believe the way we are organised and the variety we offer sets us apart from the competition. We can offer you the business challenge and career opportunity you are seeking, in an uplifting team environment.
Our activities are diverse in scope but can be grouped loosely according to the three key business areas they help our clients address:

(i) Employer advisory - including employment tax and HR, payroll and benefits consultancy
