  • In-depth, up to date knowledge of personal tax processes and legislation
  • Qualified or studying towards ATT (desirable)
  • A high level of IT user competence, particularly in Microsoft Excel, with practical experience of using software systems in the preparation of tax returns
  • Works effectively in diverse teams within an inclusive business culture where people are recognised for their contribution
  • Commitment to meeting challenging and demanding client deadlines with a flexible approach
