Graduate Development Programme (Tax Consultancy)

Job description

Our Graduate Development Programme is a three-year scheme for people who show great potential in their current field of study (likely to be business, economics, finance or accountancy).

We’ve designed the programme to take you on a journey from graduate to professionally qualified business adviser. In that time, we’ll provide you with a wide range of learning and many new experiences, and you’ll help us give market-leading business advice to support our clients’ growth.

During the three years, you’ll study and revise for your accountancy exams, while also gaining extremely valuable hands-on experience across tax technical, commercial and advisory work – working on genuine high level projects for successful, rapid-growth clients.

By combining formal learning with real world challenges, our programme will give you a superb foundation to build a successful career in Tax.

Your Role

First things first: your career with us starts with an induction, a welcome to the business, a chance to find out more about us and what your future holds with Team Marcussen.

Shortly after joining, you will be assigned a mentor/sponsor who can act as a source of advice and insight whenever you need it.

Our Graduate Development Programme brings together a series of personal effectiveness modules, commercial tax training and recognised industry qualifications such as ACA and CTA. You’ll learn how to develop and maintain a detailed understanding of taxation regulations, industry standards, best practice and client management.

The areas you will work in include entrepreneurial tax planning, corporate transactional tax structuring, enterprise reliefs and incentives, employee share schemes and business restructuring.

As you take ownership of your career aspirations, we’ll give you all the support, training and practical experience that you’ll need.

At Marcussen we advise some of the UK’s most successful and exciting businesses and entrepreneurs. We are a pure consultancy business, and we’re looking to recruit innovative and motivated individuals to join our Graduate Development Programme – a complete three-year training in commercial tax consultancy, leading to ACA/CTA qualifications.

What we offer
