Tax Specialist

Experience level: Intermediate
Term: Permanent
Working hours: Full-time
Team: Tax
Location: Thames Valley or Birmingham
The firm

A leading UK law firm with a network of offices from the South Coast to Scotland, working together as one national team. An innovative practice and the first top 100 law firm to achieve “Gold Standard” Investors in People, our values and culture are not just words on our website but are the heartbeat of the firm. The lack of barriers between departments, a real lack of hierarchy, zero tolerance for arrogance and pomposity makes Shoosmiths a fantastic place to work.

The team

Shoosmiths’ tax team is widely known as one of the leading firms advising on venture capital trust and enterprise investment scheme investments. The team acts for a wide range of both investors and investee companies on: structuring and implementing investments, reorganisation and exits in compliance with the VCT and EIS legislation; obtaining advance assurances from HMRC in relation to proposed investments; and submissions to HMRC and HM Treasury on proposed changes to EIS and VCT legislation.

The role

Our tax team is looking to grow and is seeking to appoint an additional VCT/EIS tax specialist to join us in either Thames Valley or Birmingham. The role is open to tax lawyers, tax accountants or tax advisers who are looking for an alternative and interesting new opportunity. Ideally applicants would have been advising in this area for a few years but all applications will be considered.

Equal opportunities

Shoosmiths is a committed Equal Opportunities employer promoting equality of opportunity. This means that everyone who either applies to or works for the firm is treated equally, whatever their gender, age, ethnic origin, nationality, marital status, disability, sexual orientation or religious beliefs.
