Hutcheon Mearns are delighted to be supporting a “Big Four” to source a Tax Transactions Director to join their team in Glasgow. The role involves working with clients of all sizes in all industries, working closely with the strong network of Transaction Tax teams around the world. In this dynamic and fast-moving environment, you’ll apply your skills to a variety of transactions. With a truly entrepreneurial spirit there is the flexibility to shape your career in particular sectors or areas of the M&A landscape or to get experience across the spectrum.


The Opportunity

In this team you will get wide-ranging experience in all the core areas of transactional work – including private equity, corporate deals, infrastructure, clean-tech, distressed debt / turnaround transactions and restructuring. You will obtain the opportunity to be involved in both national and regionally focused transactions.  As deal advisers, Transaction Tax team members not only get good UK tax technical experience but also get a commercial understanding of what is important to clients in a deal context. As a large part of TT work is cross-border, you will also have an early introduction to international structuring techniques and overseas tax regimes.


Key Responsibilities

  • Build and maintain tax relationships with clients and provide high levels of client service
  • Assist in winning work by proactively managing existing clients and contribute to winning new clients.
  • Manage the successful delivery of tax projects, ensuring technical excellence and practical/business focused approach taken
  • Contribute to successfully extracting maximum value for both EY and clients from the tax services delivered whilst managing risk appropriately for both client and the firm


To qualify for this role you must have:

  • Experienced tax practitioner with reviewing skills and expertise in M&A Tax, including previous experience of delivering transaction tax support on private equity transactions
  • ACA/ATT/CTA or international equivalent / Law qualification
  • Client focused and strategically and commercially aware
  • Excellent communicator in a range of situations both written and oral.
  • Enthusiastic and flexible attitude to work
  • Strong and motivated team player
  • Project management skills, plan and prioritise work, meet deadlines, monitor own budget and time

This is an ideal opportunity for an experienced tax practitioner who is looking to join a strong network of global Transaction Tax teams and to further their career.
