About the Team
PwC has the UK's largest tax practice and the leading reputation, according to the Global Tax Monitor. But being the leading firm means more to us than size and reputation. It also means taking a leading role on the key issues that affect our clients, from pension changes and executive reward to tax reform. We actively engage in the tax policy debate. A diverse business, bringing together the expertise of over 3,500 people from disciplines including tax, human resources and law, we offer rewarding, varied experience. Our clients range from businesses and entrepreneurs to wealthy individuals and public sector organisations.
Providing tailored tax advice to a wide range of corporate clients, you'll have plenty of opportunities for development and progression. This is a strong team, ready to support people who want to take on new and challenging work.
About the Role
In the North, our clients include listed companies and private-equity-backed groups as well as mid-sized, owner-managed businesses. You'll be part the Corporate North team based Manchester, providing recurring compliance services, and will also be involved in advisory, portfolio structuring and project-based work.
Expect to manage your own portfolio of clients, taking an active role in their financial management and establishing effective working relationships with their staff.
