As I am sure everyone will know, due to the global pandemic, the job market as a whole has dramatically slowed down. Although the tax market has not escaped this downturn, we are still seeing critical roles getting the green light to move forward. We hope as restrictions ease in the coming months, companies will gradually gain confidence to hire again. As always, we will keep you posted.

Below is our featured job in tax for June 2020. This is a role that comes with some major challenges which should make it interesting for any senior professional; hiring a new team, setting up processes across EMEA and as a whole reviewing the entire tax structure for the region. You will need a strong tax accounting background, international tax experience and a proven track record in leadership.
