Responsibilities

  • The programme offers a surprisingly broad range of career paths to ambitious graduates. Today’s tax function is rapidly evolving, keeping up with growing digitisation, increased regulation and the importance of the ESG (environmental, social and governance) agenda. Our job is to keep up with those developments, advising clients of new risks and opportunities. Especially important as companies focus on ESG priorities, shining a light on their tax affairs, whilst governments globally seek to drive greater tax transparency, and use tax as an incentive to help achieve wider environmental and social ambitions.
  • Our Tax practice also offers advice to clients to help them manage the impact of digital transformation, as new ways of working prompt significant changes to business models and taxation policies.
  • Across the spectrum of company and personal tax issues we offer holistic advice across International Tax, Deal Advisory Tax, Transfer Pricing and Indirect Taxes. Our People Services team advise on all aspects of employee reward, as well as managing tax issues related to having a global workforce, whist our Private Client teams support high net worth individuals and entrepreneurial families to manage their tax affairs and preserve their legacies.
  • With such a wide-ranging remit, Tax can offer the opportunity to be involved in a wide variety of challenging and high-profile projects as part of a stimulating graduate career. Tackling challenges at the heart of client organisations, you’ll be exposed to, and develop a broad understanding of business, whilst you build valuable technical skills and professional qualifications.
  • On this programme you'll study for the CFAB ATT CTA, providing you with structured learning through a blend of innovative online, and in person study. You’ll develop valuable technical skills and have the support of our learning community – helping you to fulfil your potential in your career.
