An opportunity exists for a full time Indirect Tax Assistant. The successful candidate will primarily be responsible for the international VAT reporting alongside the Indirect Tax Accountant within the tax team and will work primarily with the Indirect Tax Supervisor and Indirect Tax Manager.

This role would suit a person with 1-2 years' general experience in VAT and the supply of goods, although candidates with no VAT experience will be considered who are familiar with working in an office or accounting environment, have strong organisational and communication skills, demonstrate a passion for learning about indirect tax and are self-motivated.

We are looking for an individual with a positive attitude who is willing to take on new challenges and acquire additional skills as they develop within the role.


  • Work with the Indirect Tax Supervisor to complete and analyse various International VAT returns and reconciliations to ensure compliance and monitor/explain any variances/fluctuations.
  • Interact with other teams where necessary to collate and document the preparation of any information required to complete the VAT returns.


  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills
  • Highly organised with a good attention to detail
  • Ability and commitment to providing a flexible and responsive service to the business
  • Ability to input and retrieve data accurately and streamline processes where required.
  • Good experience of using both Microsoft Word and Excel software packages.
