An overview of the role
Your first year will be spent gaining an understanding of tax in general whilst completing the first stage of your professional qualification. Your technical knowledge will develop through the exam training and can be put into practice by working along side your colleagues both in Tax and the wider Mazars teams.
Your day to day work will include the preparation of company and personal tax returns, the preparation of tax disclosures for the financial statements, and drafting notes on areas of technical research.
You will also have client management responsibilities such as providing advice on key filing and payment dates, liaising with HM Revenue & Customs (“HMRC”) and administrative responsibilities such as producing analyses of time spent on client projects and drafting invoices.
As your training contract progresses your commercial understanding and technical knowledge will broaden, and you will build your own client portfolio, and begin to manage these clients.
How we will support you
We will fund you to study towards the ACA (Association Chartered Accountants) qualification.
You will receive a full study package and time off to attend college but, with Mazars your professional qualification is only part of the story. We support all our trainees with a blended approach to training and development, classroom study, 1:1 coaching and support and, as you progress, technical and skills training to enable you to progress to management and leadership positions.
You will spend time away from the office to attend classes for tuition and revision stages of each exam. The classroom taught approach means that you will have the support of your peers and valuable study time for your exams.
We also operate a number of in-house training courses which will give you technical insight to assist you to keep up with changes in legislation and case law, both in the UK and worldwide.
What we are looking for
We want driven professional individuals who excel at working with others, who have the ability to communicate at a high level and who share the same values as Mazars. Alongside this you must be able to demonstrate analytical skills, commitment, drive, commercial awareness, flexibility and creativity.
We look for candidates who can demonstrate a strong academic track record.
• You will have achieved, or be on course to achieve, at least a 2.1 in your degree, although the subject of your degree is not important.
• You’ll need at least 280 UCAS points (to have achieved in the same academic year, from your best 3 A Levels and excluding General Studies).
• We also look for Grade B or above in GCSE English Language and Maths.
