Tax, Management Tax Advisory Group (MTAG) - Senior Manager
We have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Manager to work with our MTAG team.
The MTAG market segment works closely with Chief Officer-level directors of privately-owned and Private Equity-backed companies, key contacts within Private Equity houses or other potential purchasers. The objective of our work is to ensure that the management team’s equity or other incentives are structured in a commercially and tax efficient manner, in order to align interests between management and the investors and to motivate and retain key executives of the business. Often the work is time pressured, fast moving and confidential so requires some flexibility from our team.
In order to help the team to grow we’re looking for someone who can do the following:
communicate complex issues in an effective and efficient way;
project manage while working to tight deadlines in a demanding environment;
act with the best interests of the firm in mind;
can operate effectively under pressure;
think and act commercially;
consistently exceed client expectations;
soak up and share knowledge whilst retaining a creative and innovative mindset; and
thrive and hold their own in challenging circumstances and against headstrong stakeholders.
If this is you and you’re interested we would really like to hear from you.
The emphasis of our work is tax structuring projects during a transaction. Often that will involve a third party buyer but we also work on equity resets, joiners/leavers, or assignments linked to a float process.
The key issues that we look at are in relation to management shareholders and often involve working with our international network. Our work focuses on both acquisitions, sales, re-structuring and re-financing projects public listings and we work closely with the rest of London Region Tax, the Corporate Tax and M&A group, Corporate Finance, Transaction Services, Business Recovery Services, Valuations, Reward and Legal teams within PwC.
Our main clients include the management shareholders of a company, the company directly, or Private Equity houses.
You would be taking a leading role and working with a team on projects which are generally demanding and fast-paced. There is a lot of interaction with other parts of PwC, as mentioned earlier, and you will need to able to build relationships quickly and work x-los as One Firm.
You will be expected to lead the preparation of technical work for submission to clients with the support of junior and senior colleagues.
In addition to client work you will be expected to take part in business development initiatives, help with pitches to clients and attend networking events.
Development of yourself and others is an expected part of the culture at PwC.
This is a fantastic role for someone who is looking to enhance their valuable front line transaction and commercial experience and technical and client handling skills.
