Tax Placement

Are you on a four-year sandwich degree course? Do you want to experience a 12-month placement that will put you right at the heart of business?

Our 12-month placements are an excellent way to get a unique insight into our business and experience what it’s like to provide vital business and financial advice to clients. Working on real projects, you’ll help our clients to grow and be encouraged to develop your skills every day. You’ll also be on the fast-track to a graduate offer if that’s what you want. Most students who join us on a placement go onto become a full-time trainee after graduation.

Your placement will start with a two-day orientation event in London that includes a celebratory evening to kick-off the year. The next day, you’ll get to know your colleagues and students on other placements, while learning more about our business, vision and purpose.

From the very beginning you’ll get a good grounding in what it takes to be a business adviser, working with your team at client sites, supported by a mentor and team buddy. Here, you won’t spend your time photocopying or making the coffee. You’ll learn all about our dynamic and ambitious firm and make a very real contribution, while experiencing first-hand, how we work with our clients to drive their growth.

You’ll also be supported every step of the way by our team. And we’re consistently rated a top provider of internships and placements in Rate My Placement's list of Top Undergraduate Employers.

Tax

Our clients rely on us to make sure they do the right thing and are operating within the law. Providing advice on their business goals and bringing them commercial insight, we help them build sustainable growth and operate with integrity.

If you want to be at the forefront of business issues then you could be a perfect match for tax. The work you’ll do with your clients is of huge importance. After all, bad tax advice can lead to damaged reputations and expensive consequences. You’ll help your clients manage their tax obligations efficiently and responsibly. From early on, you could have your own client portfolio.

We have a variety of corporate and specialist tax teams here. Whichever one you join, you’ll gain hands-on experience, working with a variety of dynamic clients, from organisations in media and entertainment to finance to charities. We’ll help you to learn how to interpret complex legislation, deliver different solutions and provide our clients with clear advice and recommendations they can count on.

Who we're looking for

We’re looking for talented people who want to be a part of something bigger. Free to be yourself, confident and approachable. You must be a great relationship builder who can inspire everyone around you with your energy and ideas.

You’ll help our clients to tackle their burning issues and future challenges. Listening hard and asking the right questions is at the heart of providing great business advice. We’ll enable and empower you to do just that, so you can show initiative and bring new ideas and perspectives to the table to help our clients and the wider economy to grow.

You should share our CLEARR values – Collaboration, Leadership, Excellence, Agility, Respect and Responsibility. Always striving to grow yourself, you should be driven to succeed with the ability to see tasks through to the end and remain agile, even when things don’t go to plan. Your ability to see the bigger picture and also drill down into the small detail will make you stand out from the crowd – a real natural when it comes to solving problems, you’ll be able to analyse the numbers and back them up with strategic advice. Being a part of a team is at the heart of how we work here – you’ll be able to balance working as part of a team and take ownership of the part you play.
