Job Description

The Vacancy

At Buzzacott, we describe ourselves as friendly and professional, with values ingrained in our culture of trust, client focus, exceptional service, specialist knowledge and approachability. We all work together under one roof, as the largest single-office accountancy firm in the UK, giving you the opportunity to collaborate, build relationships and shine from day one.

We are looking for values-driven, bright graduates to join us for our September 2021 intake of tax trainees in our Expatriate Tax Services team.

The team help US and UK citizens and businesses based away from home to manage their net earnings and reduce liabilities. Consisting of dual-qualified US/UK tax experts, 10 partners and strong administration support, the team know both tax systems inside out and have handled relocations for solo workers up to hundreds of employees. On the other side of the world, our Hong Kong team looks after US and UK nationals living across Southeast Asia. To find out more about the team, please click here.

We go above and beyond for our clients, but also for you. We have a genuine commitment to your development, offering you a closely supported and structured programme of tuition, provided by a top firm of external tutors. Internally, you’ll be supported by a manager who will act as your mentor, a trainee buddy, partners and senior staff and a dedicated Training and Development Coordinator.

You will study towards the ATT and Enrolled Agent Training over 36 months to become fully qualified in both UK and US taxation, making you a "dual-handler". You’ll build on technical skills and also on your personal and professional development. Training consists of a combination of courses at the tutors’ offices, private study and regular exams, as well as on-the-job training.

You are the right person for the role if:

  • You are a graduate with an inquiring mind and a sociable disposition, a problem solver with high standards, who thrives in a meritocracy.                
  • You are able to build meaningful, collaborative relationships with both clients and team members.
  • You are keen to take ownership from an early stage and are committed to providing excellent client service at all times.
  • You are a strong multi-tasker with the ability to prioritise your time to studying and working simultaneously.

In order to apply for this role, you will need to have:

  • Or expect to obtain a 2.1 degree in any discipline, or equivalent
  • A minimum of 120 UCAS Tariff points from your top 3 A-levels, or equivalent (300 using the old tariff)
  • A minimum of Level 5 (B grade using the old system) in GSCE Maths and English Language, or equivalent
  • The right to work in the UK without restrictions for the duration of the training contract

Please note we do not accept General Studies or applications from part-qualified applicants.
