I am currently working with a major up and coming high frequency trading firm going through a significant period of growth who are looking for a Head of Tax who will be responsible for all Tax matters on a global scale.
Reporting directly to the CFO you will have oversight of all tax compliance for the business globally including Trading-related Taxes, Corporate Taxes etc. You'll also have long term projects that you'll be running alongside your day to day responsibilities and you will conduct investigations of oversea tax issues.
In addition, you will build financial models for Tax forecasts, provide guidance on group structuring and research future Tax developments so that all decisions that are made are done with a forward looking approach.
Successful candidates will ideally have trained in practice and be CTA/ACA (or equivalent) qualified. You will ideally have specific client experience across complex businesses such as hedge funds, high frequency trading firms (or similar). The client will also consider individuals who have trained in practice and have now moved into an in-house Tax role. Some financial services experience is essential.
