The tax recruitment market has changed dramatically in recent years. Tax Compliance & Reporting guidelines have become more demanding; this, combined with a new generation of Tax Automation platforms and the aim to standardise internal processes globally, means a career in tax can take very different forms.

It is therefore more important than ever to have an in-depth knowledge of the market, so we can advise organisations and individuals on the variety of options available, and the potential impact of their decisions.

We help recruit tax professionals at all experience levels, from individuals making their first professional move to senior leadership and technical positions, across EMEA, North America, and AsiaPac.
