Senior UK Group Tax Manager

Havas Shared Services

Maidstone, Kent

Salary: circa £85,000 pa (Contributory stakeholder pension scheme. Private medical and life assurance. Discretionary bonus)


Havas People is recruiting this position on behalf of our parent company Havas – the sixth largest advertising and communications agency in the world.

Managing the UK Tax Department of a leading global advertising and marketing group, you’ll enjoy opportunities to develop and achieve that are every bit as big as your responsibilities.

With a remit spanning the Havas UK Group, you will manage the provision of a comprehensive corporate and payroll related tax advisory and planning service. Involved with all cross-border issues involving the UK Group, you’ll work on international affairs with members of Tax Teams in Paris, Madrid and New York. At home, we’ll look to you to manage our relationship with HMRC. You’ll play a hands-on role in preparing corporation tax returns, reviewing internal reporting, and managing UK tax accounting for consolidation purposes. What’s more, you’ll provide specialist advice spanning everything from acquisitions and disposals, through to the worldwide debt cap and online filing.

A commercially aware tax professional with relevant expertise, you will ideally have a full, formal qualification. You’ll certainly have a proven, relevant track record - preferably within an in-house tax department. Crucially, you’ll have a flair for communicating technical tax issues with clarity.

We’d be thrilled to have a conversation with you about the role.  Please do come back to me if you’d like to review more details about the role and I will have them sent to you.
