As a Senior Manager your role will include tax advice, tax compliance, and business development.
You will have and build your own portfolio of clients and in addition may work with other parts of the firm, such as corporate finance or forensics, to support one-off transactions or projects.
On your portfolio clients, your main focus will be to provide corporate tax advice to support their UK and international operations and activities. You are likely to be a main point of contact with the client’s finance director or head of tax, so should develop good professional relationships and introduce or supervise other BDO services as appropriate.
For each client or project, you will be responsible for supervising more junior staff reporting to you. In turn, you will be reporting to a partner or senior director in CIT and need to keep other parts of the firm and/or overseas offices informed.
Your role will include building your portfolio through supporting proposals, identifying opportunities on existing clients, and developing your own internal and external network and pipeline.
