Placement of Corporate Tax Senior at a Top10 firm in Yorkshire


We reached out to the candidate via LinkedIn while acting on behalf of one of our clients, a Top10 firm in the UK with an office in the Yorkshire area. Our client was looking to grow their Corporate Tax function with an ACA/CTA Senior Associate. The role would naturally lead into an Assistant Manager role once qualified with a bias towards Advisory.


The candidate was working at an independent firm at the time but had ambitions of stepping up to a larger firm to diversify their experience and exposure to more complex clients. They had an initial first-stage interview in their office, which took place with the Corporate Tax Partner and Office Managing Partner. During the interview process, it became apparent that it was a good fit, and a competitive offer was made within the week.


"Hadley was extremely helpful in assisting me throughout the recruitment process - from applying for the role, all the way to securing the position. He was always prompt in responding and polite, which allowed me to make informed decisions on what next steps I wanted to take. I would definitely recommend him to anyone thinking about their career options."
