As a VAT Specialist, you will enjoy being able to advise and support on all matters related to Indirect Tax in both the UK and EU regions. This will cover VAT, passenger taxes and other indirect tax work.
Compared to many roles at this level, the position has a large amount of advisory / project work and business partnering. You will be required to support the Indirect Taxes Manager with all aspects of Indirect Taxes Accounting for all business sections and group companies.

*Advise colleagues on VAT queries and resolve issues arising from invoice processing
*Maintenance of VAT controls including table review and updating tax tables within various systems
*Ad hoc projects as required to ensure we remain compliant in all areas relating to indirect taxes

What we are looking for:
*International VAT/Indirect tax experience would be great, but we are happy to consider applicants just with UK VAT experience
*Strong Indirect tax advisory experience with excellent technical skills.
*Desire and confidence to challenge ideas, working both autonomously and as part of a team.
*Pro-active and enjoy problem-solving, working in an agile way and making well-informed decisions within tight deadlines
*Positive 'can do' attitude to ensure the highest level of service is delivered to internal and external stakeholders
*Engaging communicator, confident in dealing with varying situations and always to a high standard
*Strong organisation, planning and project management skills.
*Exceptional numeracy and data analysis skills, plus good system skills (preferably with SAP and Excel).

What's in it for you?
*Fantastic holiday benefits including discounts, special offers and the ability to purchase additional time off
*Health and Wellbeing support in five key areas - Financial, Health, Social, Community and Career
*Private Medical Insurance, single cover with option to add dependants
*Permanent Health Insurance
*Pension scheme, life assurance and options to buy share
