Senior Associate Transfer Pricing Reading
Posted on Jan 18, 2019 by PWC-1
The South East transfer pricing team is a dynamic, diverse and close-knit team which is looking for new members to help it continue its impressive growth over the last two years in a region which has been identified by PwC as a key area for strategic investment. The team, which is led by partner Andrew Taylor, has a blend of experienced transfer pricing practitioners and those keen to develop their skills in this area. Currently comprising 13 members, the team is of comparable size to PwC's other regional transfer pricing practices and provides great opportunities for individuals to build their careers within transfer pricing. The team services clients across six offices in the South East with a presence in four of those offices Reading, Cambridge, Uxbridge, and Southampton. As such, the team operates on a regional basis with team members working on clients across the region. Our client base includes companies from across a broad range of industries but with a particular concentration of technology and pharmaceutical groups, and from different market segments, including UK listed groups, private businesses, and in particular, inbound clients. The type of work that the team carries out is very varied, including large operating model transformations, transfer pricing policy design and implementation, defence documentation, and tax authority audits, along with a range of transfer pricing of debt assignments. The structure of the team means that individuals have the opportunity to take on more responsibility and to undertake more interesting work at an earlier stage of their career than they might do in a larger, more established practice. As a fast growing team, we are looking for individuals who are keen to work in a dynamic and fun environment which will provide significant career opportunities.
As a Senior Associate, you'll work as part of a team of problem solvers with extensive consulting and industry experience, helping our clients solve their complex business issues from strategy to execution. Specific responsibilities include but are not limited to:

- Establish effective working relationships directly with clients
- Contribute to the development of your own and team's technical acumen
- Keep up to date with local and national business and economic issues
- Be actively involved in business development activities to help identify and research opportunities on new/existing clients
- Continue to develop internal relationships and your PwC brand
We help organisations and the people who run them answer the big business questions. How should we raise finance? Where should we be based? How should we reward our people?

The skills we look for in future employees
All our people need to demonstrate the skills and behaviours that support us in delivering our business strategy. This is important to the work we do for our business, and our clients. These skills and behaviours make up our global leadership framework, 'The PwC Professional' and are made up of five core attributes; whole leadership, technical capabilities, business acumen, global acumen and relationships.
We work in a changing world which offers great opportunities for people with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool, as well as those who reflect the diverse nature of our society. And we aim to encourage a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their strengths. Creating value through diversity is what makes us strong as a business and as an organisation with an increasingly agile workforce, we're open to flexible working arrangements where appropriate.
