  • An ability to lead a team, mentor counselees and manage client-serving business

  • A demonstrated ability to successfully sell and deliver large enterprise programs

  • Experience defining data and reporting needs for a tax department

  • Enterprise resource planning (ERP) experience, including SAP or Oracle

  • Experience managing large, multidisciplinary projects that impact tax (e.g., ERP implementations, tax co-sourcing engagements, finance transformations)

We are looking for knowledgeable technical professionals with an excellent general knowledge of both international and domestic tax. You will need excellent business acumen and a firm strategic vision, so if you are ready to use those skills to develop our team, this role is for you.

We offer a competitive compensation package where you will be rewarded based on your performance and recognized for the value you bring to our business.
