A large FTSE multinational group based in their North London HQs are looking to expand their employment tax discipline by bringing in a tax professional with UK employment tax experience to join their thriving, fast-paced and commercial finance/tax division.

The ideal candidate will have a sound foundation in UK employment tax matters, and be able to work confidently with a range of stakeholders to advise the business accordingly. Be able to drive to develop and embed processes and procedures which manage the employment tax risk in a practical and commercial manner.


  • Key initial responsibility will be to lead for Group Tax on the IR35 project.

  • UK compliance tasks will include working with payroll to ensure timely and accurate P11D submissions, preparing the PAYE Settlement Agreement, and preparing the short Term Business Visitor reports.
  • The Employment Tax Adviser will need to work effectively and cooperatively with all areas of the business across Europe, but primarily HR, Payroll, Reward and Legal.
  • The Employment Tax Adviser will also play a key role within the wider tax team in maintaining and developing the established working relationship with HMRC and other local tax authorities outside the UK.
  • Providing international tax technical advice and getting involved in various ad-hoc projects all year round.


  • Strong knowledge of UK domestic employment tax matters, with experience from a large practice firm or in a large business environment.
  • A broad technical understanding of the IR35 rules and their commercial impact.
  • Experience of international tax / global mobility matters is preferred but not essential.
