Job Description

Who are we?

It’s not all about the numbers!

Traditionally accountancy has been all about numbers and commercial considerations; but not here at Haines Watts. We really strive to build lasting, valued relationships and to make a tangible and meaningful impact. It is our clients’ success that drives us and we are proactively committed to helping our clients and colleagues achieve their business and life goals in a passionate and authentic way, as these are the key traits that underpin everything we do.

At the heart of our firm is our colleagues, which is why team engagement has become more important than ever before. We have achieved recognition from Best Companies for this and we are also one of the Top 10 best accountancy firms to work for in the UK, investing heavily in colleague wellbeing and mindfulness. As the face of the workplace has shifted since the pandemic, we have adapted and challenged what the working environment looks like for our teams, creating an environment fit for the future.

We’re committed to improving diversity and inclusion, not just in terms of background but also in terms of diversity of thought and skills. We are curious about how we can help shape the future of accountancy and advisory for the next generation which is why we decided to become a National Sponsor of the Reach Next Generation Summit, aligning our values with action.

What is the role?

We are currently recruiting for a Mixed Tax Advisor to join our friendly team based in Edinburgh. This is a great opportunity for an ambitious, qualified tax adviser to continue building their career and client relationships.

The successful candidate will be dealing with various direct tax compliance matters for a range of business clients, taking responsibility for the preparation of tax documentation for both the businesses and the individuals who run them.

They will manage a portfolio of audit and owner managed corporate businesses, as well as a number of high net worth individuals, the majority of which will be linked to the existing corporate/business clients.

They will also provide support, training and guidance to other team members as and when required, to help build and improve upon the existing knowledge base within the firm.

As part of the tax department, they will work with the Tax Director when required to assist on tax advisory work and planning projects.

* Like to listen and understand, to show up every day with passion and to stand up for things that matter to you

What else are we looking for?

As well as the above, you will be CTA qualified or have a similar level of experience, and be able to work well as part of a team but also show initiative when working alone.

A high level of attention to detail is needed, and to be able to work to deadlines. You will be familiar with Outlook and the Microsoft suite of applications, and experience with the IRIS tax and accountancy software package is desirable but not essential.
