Job Details:

  • Location: The Chocolate Factory, Bristol, BS21 2GN
  • Contract: Permanent, Full time
  • Hours: Monday to Friday, 8:30am - 5:00pm, Hybrid working available

We are hiring a VAT specialist to join our Group Tax team at Mitie!  This role will involve managing the UK VAT compliance process for the Mitie Group, including following up issues with businesses.  VAT is a significant tax for Mitie comprising 50% of our annual total tax contribution.  The post-holder will report to the Group VAT Senior Manager. 

As the UK VAT  Manager, you will work closely with our shared services team to ensure that deadlines are met and accurate returns are produced. You will also review UK VAT returns prepared by companies that are not part of the Mitie VAT group and support the Group VAT Senior Manager and wider team on other tasks as appropriate.

We are looking for someone with a proven track record of experience in VAT, strong organisational skills, and the ability to manage several deliverables within strict deadlines. You should also have excellent communication skills to enable you to develop strong working relationships, both with the internal teams and with external businesses. A high level of integrity with a commitment to work toward, and support, strong governance culture is essential. Creativity and innovative thinking are highly desirable skills as we are always looking for the opportunity to adapt and improve our processes. 

If you have a tax or accounting qualification or are qualified by experience in the relevant profession or HMRC, we want to hear from you! High proficiency in Excel is required, and customs experience would be desirable but not essential. Don't miss out on this opportunity to work in a dynamic environment and be part of an enthusiastic team.

We have a virtual GP on hand for you and members of your household. So you can get expert advice by video or phone without having to leave your home. We offer financial wellbeing assistance through our Salary Finance scheme. For example, you could access 50% of your earned pay before payday for a small fee.

Life cover of up to four times your salary is available. We also offer enhanced pension contributions, a save-as-you-earn scheme, and a Mitie Matching Share Plan (you could even be awarded free shares in Mitie).
