This is a re-advertisement and previous applicants need not apply.

This role will be based on the university campus, with scope for it to be undertaken in a hybrid manner. We are also open to discussing flexible working arrangements.

Do you like variety and enjoy a challenge? Can you focus on the timely and efficient delivery of the day to day tax compliance while simultaneously fostering and maintaining effective relationships to support strategic priorities? Are you experienced in engaging with both internal and external stakeholders? Are you highly organised with a flexible and positive approach to problem solving?

The University of Leeds is one of the top 75 universities in the world.

You will play a key role in enabling the team to meet the University's tax compliance obligations, undertaking data analysis and providing advice on a range of tax issues. You will be supported by the Department's technical support and will be responsible for ensuring compliance requirements continue to be met against the backdrop of the University's changing environment, including meeting the requirements of making tax digital (MTD).

This is a fantastic opportunity for personal and professional development for the right candidate, building on your existing expertise and acquiring new skills.
