Head of Tax, Insurance


£110,000-130,000 + 30% bonuses and benefits

Are you ACA/CTA/CPA qualified with extensive PQE in a broad tax role with a planning and strategy emphasis?

Do you have demonstrable corporate, indirect and international tax experience, and experience in managing a small and ambitious team?

Do you have a demonstrable interest in insurance, or the wider financial services?

We are currently searching for a major, multinational and acquisitive insurance provider. US-headed by the Global Head of Tax, the team in London currently stand at 3 in number. With IPT, VAT and corporate tax outsourced, the team consists of a UK Head of Tax currently succession planning, an outbound Senior Tax Manager and a junior Tax Reporting Accountant. This role will draw on oversight of compliance, reporting and accounting, working closely with the existing Head of Tax in London on a number of projects to hand-over prior to their exit. This role holds a large degree of compliance oversight, advisory, strategy and planning.

What your CV will need to demonstrate to be considered for this opportunity:
  • Broad taxation remit within insurance or the wider financial services
  • Solid experience with planning, reporting and strategy, certainly of a corporate and international tax background, preferably with exposure to wider areas of taxation
  • Demonstrable commitments to previous roles, with solid tenure lengths

What your CV can't show, but we will look for:
  • Someone who can offer both strategic insight and oversight
  • Sleeves-up mentality, not averse to completing a return if necessary
  • Able to engage stakeholders at senior levels and communicate effectively with a US-based Global Head of Tax

The process:
  • Simply forward your expression of interest (please attach a CV/LinkedIn profile to frame the conversation) to, before calling on 02072696343.
  • Initial coffee with the Head of Tax in London and a meet/VC with the Global Head of Tax in the US
  • Final interview with C-suite stakeholders, likely including an individually-selected presentation.
