With a vacancy now open for a Trainee Tax Technician in our Bury St Edmunds office, we’d like to give you a closer look at the highlights of choosing a career in tax – and also the highlights of choosing Whitings as your employer.
Why choose tax?
The common misconception with a career in tax is that we must sit around in silence adding up numbers all day. In reality, a career in tax is heavily based around people skills and collaboration. All of our work is geared towards helping people achieve their goals, so it’s important that we are able to communicate eloquently and effectively to translate our expertise into understanding for our clients.
Tax is such a vast, complex subject that even the most experienced tax adviser is always learning on the job. It’s this complexity which makes it possible to specialise in so many different areas – making it possible to forge your own path in more ways than one. There’s such a variety of work to be done that it’s difficult to describe a ‘typical’ day in tax. One certainty, though, is that there’s always opportunity to learn something new.
Why choose Whitings?
About as far away from the stereotype of middle-aged bean counters as you could get, Whitings is a company made up of youthful, energetic trailblazers. It’s the people who make up the company, along with an excellent level of career support, which make Whitings such a fantastic place to work. Throw in the variety of social and networking events which are on offer here, and you’ve got a recipe for success.
On top of this, the array of different clients and situations which you’ll be facing in your day to day job will not only keep you on your toes, but will also help you to decide on the areas you have a passion for, and wish to develop further. For the right person, the opportunities for progression are limitless.
