Deloitte, Consultant, Indirect Tax, Liverpool / Manchester

Role description

Work autonomously for a superior client portfolio with the UK's largest Indirect Tax group. Develop your skill set and establish your own network as you gain exposure across a mix of tax service lines. Joining our team will provide you with an excellent support network to springboard your career with the market leaders in Indirect Tax.

Progress your career, make a difference

Our team is regarded within the firm as one of the leading and most successful service lines, with a reputation for being proactive, entrepreneurial, successful and fun to work with. Unlike other firms we reward our employees on merit and not time served. Working for us will present you with the opportunity to get involved in high profile cases early on in your career and expand your horizons.

Your skill set will be enhanced with us as you work across our different tax services groups. From an early stage you will find that work is pushed down from our partners to the team, providing you with the opportunity to take on responsibility earlier in your career. As you are given the autonomy to establish your own contacts within a client and reach your own solutions, your independence will be accelerated. It is up to you to take this independence and build your own network. Whilst autonomy is encouraged the team network will always be there for you if and when you need support and advice.

Our work is varied and involves advising on all of the main indirect taxes including VAT, Customs Duties, Insurance Premium Tax and, increasingly, Environmental Taxes.

Our Consultants take the lead on delivering key parts of our client services. As a Consultant you will use your commercial awareness and professional expertise, along with leveraging the skills and expertise of others, to deliver the best possible experience and outcomes for our clients. You might own or manage key elements of a client relationship and, with an appropriate level of support, will be expected to proactively identify innovative solutions for your clients and pursue new business development opportunities by utilising your networks and market knowledge. Our Consultants are also either people managers or act as coaches and role models to the Analysts in their team. You will be a confident team player and enjoy sharing your knowledge and expertise with others, as well as continuing to build your own technical expertise or specialism.


Responsibilities will include:

  • Assisting with business development initiatives on target accounts, contributing to winning new work
  • Leading existing client engagements, reporting direct to a partner
  • Assisting with the developing less experienced staff with hands on advice and support
  • Input into development of new market opportunities locally and nationally with an opportunity to lead the market development of the new ideas
  • Contributing to enhancement of relationships with targets and clients
  • Identifying cross service line opportunities
  • Contributing to existing team spirit and ensuring coming to work is fun
  • We also encourage specialisation in industry sectors where we and you believe there are untapped opportunities.


To qualify for the role you must have:

  • ATT or CTA or equivalent qualification or experience
  • Prior VAT experience gained within professional services or HMRC
  • Excellent client facing, relationship building and business development skills, coupled with commercial awareness
  • The ability to be proactive, identify opportunity and take early responsibility

We are Tax

Our business spans the full range of tax activities and by integrating these specialist areas when forging a team for the client, we can deliver the best advice to that client, wherever in the world they operate. Internally, the tax department is split into three main areas: Business Tax, Indirect Tax and Global Employer Services.

Our consultative approach adds significant value to our clients' businesses and makes a tangible difference to their profits. As a result, you'll get to work with a variety of clients, across a wide range of industry sectors, from large multinational companies to entrepreneurs and other high net worth individuals. This variety of work means you'll gain broad and in-depth knowledge of business. As well as providing coaching in key financial, business, consulting and legal skills, we'll also give you all the support you need to gain valuable professional qualifications.
