Senior Corporate Tax Manager, Financial Services - Location Flexible

Date: Nov 26, 2021

Location: Manchester, United Kingdom

Company: KPMG UK

Overview of role

We are looking for a Senior Manager to help us manage our existing portfolio of clients and to help us win additional work in the Regional Financial Services marketplace.

The work required by the role would be varied and dynamic and requires a decent level of UK corporate tax knowledge and experience. The role will also require the candidate to be able to work as part of a team both with more senior and more junior staff.

Ideally the candidate would have knowledge and experience of financial services however that is not essential and we would consider suitably qualified candidates who do not have financial services experience as training can be given as needed.

The Regional Financial Services Tax Team is a small, friendly and supportive team with staff members based around the country (Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, London, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Bristol). The team are used to working with each other remotely for much of the time and therefore we are open to applicants based anywhere in the UK.

The role is extremely flexible and we are open to full time or part time working. We are also open to home working, flexible working or a mix of both.


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.

We recognise that as individuals, we each have particular needs and that one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to how, when and where you work. That is why we are proud to offer our colleagues agile working options. We believe in putting you at the centre of your career – KPMG will offer the training, development and stimulating work environment to help you get to where your career ambitions are. That is why we introduced ‘Our Deal’ – it’s our way of saying ‘thank you’ for bringing your best to work. As part of ‘Our Deal’, you will benefit from a range of rewards from secondment opportunities and preferential banking services to a day off on your birthday and have open, honest conversations about your career development.
