Tax Consulting Placement at Deloitte

Where: United Kingdom

Deadline: June 30, 2019

Type: Placement Year

View more

About the Company:

Main business: : Finance (incl. accountancy, insurance, pensions and fundraising)

We rely on talented graduates like you. With your freshness, insight and innovative thinking, you help us realise our goal to be the most trusted professional services firm in the world.

We already lead the way, providing Tax, Consulting, Corporate Finance and Audit services across all major industries. Would you like to work with clients in financial services, technology, media and telecommunications? How about those in consumer business or travel?

Whatever your degree subject and whichever service line you choose, you could be working with clients in all these areas, and of all shapes and sizes. It’s this breadth of experience that offers you the complexity and challenges you yearn for. This is why you could grow further and faster here than perhaps anywhere else.

About the Role:

Tax Consulting is all about solving complex intellectual challenges. We help our clients make the right business decisions, on a worldwide scale, by working collaboratively and creatively. Which means you get to see the bigger picture and become an expert in your specialist field.

  • Business Tax: In Business Tax, it’s our job to help our clients understand and manage them. From day one, you’ll work closely with clients – big and small - across all industries, on every aspect of their corporate tax. You’ll help them deal with the heightened focus on tax and the complexity of balancing legislation, case law and public perception. Filing tax returns is just one part of this. But we also deliver large-scale, international projects, as the tax experts in a multidisciplinary team. You might develop an industry specialism too.
  • Global Employer Services: Two words sum up what we do in Global Employer Services (GES): Mobility and Reward. The first is about helping employers of all shapes and sizes to move their people around the globe, providing expert legal and business advice on everything from immigration to tax. The second is about planning the right pay, pensions and benefits for their staff. Join us and you’ll not only be among the experts in this field, but the market leaders. You’ll get to use innovation and technology, such as business analytics, to deliver true insights and value to clients (you will find this job in the Human Capital Job Family).
  • Indirect Tax: As an Indirect Tax professional, you’ll get to know all aspects of your client’s business and advise them on business-critical events. Much of this is rooted in law. Which means a big part of your job will be researching legislation and case law and relating it to clients, so you can find effective solutions for them. You could really help clients navigate everything from Brexit to US Trade Reform, and all the uncertainties in-between including their tax systems and technology. Wherever you specialise, you’ll become an expert in customs, global trade, VAT, landfill tax and other indirect taxes that affect businesses, minimising the costs for clients, whenever, wherever and however they do business.
