Big 4 and Top 10 firms are heavily investing in their regional offices, particularly those based in Manchester, Bristol and Reading are amongst the cities very busy from a recruitment perspective. What can tax professionals expect from roles outside London?
The start of 2019 has been uncertain for the Tax profession, primarily because of Brexit confusion and a distinct lack of progress creating an element of hesitancy. This said, firms are still hiring significantly, in particular within their regional offices based across Manchester, Bristol and Reading.
Over recent years there has been a growing trend of firms, from Big 4 and Top 10 right through to independents, expanding their presence in regional locations across the UK. At present, Morgan McKinley have seen three notable cities to be Manchester, Bristol and Reading and there is no sign of this trend relenting. In order for expansion plans to be successful, the right talent has to be hired - the demand for high quality tax professionals in these locations is not far off what is being seen in London.
Roles based in Manchester, Bristol and Reading are attractive to tax professionals seeking a new challenge, as they provide an excellent opportunity to become a specialist in their subject matter within a less saturated market. As such, they can offer clear progression - also helped by the fact that the largest concentration of vacancies are at manager level and above. Any opportunities in Big 4 firms (in particular), wherever they are located, remunerate generously and have attractive flexible working arrangements, as well as providing the platform to develop meaningful client relationships with household brands and prestigious organisations - an invaluable item to have on your CV!
