This is a really niche tax position with a major global business.  This nothing like any of the traditional tax positions that normally present to the Northern Ireland market. First off, this is an in-house role, second it is a mixed role (Corporate & Personal Tax + Accounting) and finally, it is a major Multi-Billion Turnover business. 

This is not a typical tax role, read on and find out more if you are interested in a new challenge!
