A unique opportunity for an experienced accountant

An exciting new role has been created for an experienced accountant to join our growing team, accrediting companies with the Fair Tax Mark – the gold standard of responsible tax conduct.

You will work with corporate clients of all shapes and sizes, including listed multinationals from around the world. You will assess their tax conduct to help them achieve Fair Tax Mark accreditation. You will also have lots of opportunities for related work that meets your skills, interests, and professional development goals.

A starting salary of £35-40k is offered depending on experience, with 30 days paid holiday plus bank holidays, 8% employer pension contributions, and flexible working. Part time applications will also be considered.

The closing date for applications is 5pm, Monday 18th September 2023.

About us

We run the Fair Tax Mark accreditation scheme, which seeks to encourage and recognise businesses that are open, honest, and transparent about their operations and taxes – and which pay the right amount of corporation tax, at the right time, and in the right places. We believe companies paying tax responsibly and transparently should be celebrated, and any race to the bottom resisted.

Some one hundred parent companies and 250 distinct trading businesses are currently Fair Tax Mark accredited, who between them employ over 250,000 and contribute more than US$1.5bn in corporation tax annually. Companies have now been certified in Denmark, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden, with further international expansion on the way.

Who we’re looking for

We are looking for a chartered accountant (or equivalently trained and experienced), with experience in business and financial reporting. You should be comfortable reading and understanding sets of accounts, preparing tax reconciliations and understanding deferred taxes, and a confident and skilled communicator.

We would ideally like someone who can work in our Manchester city centre office, but we will consider hybrid or remote working applications for the right candidate (although the place of work for this role must be in the UK).

About the role

You will be a vital part of our accreditation team, guiding existing and new clients through the accreditation process. You will assess them based on financial records, tax reconciliations, group structures, ownership and control and more, to produce reports and recommend the actions necessary to achieve Fair Tax Mark accreditation.

You will also have opportunities for related work that meets your skills, interests, and professional development goals. This could include research, travel, writing content (e.g. blogs, articles), media, networking, webinars, public speaking, and other specialised projects.
