A newly created standalone Head of Tax role has come to the market for the first time as a result of increased growth and complexity of this multinational Life Reinsurance Group. Reporting to the CFO you will manage all tax activities with the focus being on strategy, business partnering and ensuring compliance and reporting obligations are met.

As the Head of tax, key responsibilities will include:

  • Write and implement the Tax Strategy with due regard for reputational risk
  • Working with advisors and local finance teams to ensure compliance deadlines are met, and increasing efficiency and coordination of these processes
  • Keeping the business informed of any changes in legislation that could impact operating guidelines and provide tax input to the business plan

This is an exciting role that would suit a Head of Tax working in an insurance group, or a Tax Director looking for their first move in-house having specialised in the insurance sector. You must be hands on enough to not be fazed by a standalone role across all taxes, whilst having the experience across multiple territories and managing senior stakeholders. If you are interested in finding out more, please get in touch for a confidential discussion and job spec.
