Our tax practice revolves around helping our clients effectively manage their tax obligations proactively and responsibly. As part of a global team of 35,000 tax professionals in 150 countries, you will advise clients on planning, compliance and reporting wherever the client has needs. Our unwavering commitment to quality service and our technical networks enable you to help clients reduce inefficiencies, mitigate risk and improve opportunities within their tax functions. Groups (or, as we call them – sub-service lines) within Tax include Business Tax Services, Global Compliance and Reporting, Human Capital, Indirect Tax Services, International Tax Services and Transaction Tax Services.

Our Global Compliance and Reporting (GCR) practice revolves around helping our clients effectively manage their corporate tax compliance, statutory reporting and corporate secretarial obligations proactively and efficiently, becoming their trusted advisor in the process. Due to exciting growth we are looking for a Manager to join our ACR team in Auckland.

**The opportunity**

As a Manager, you will be central to helping companies achieve an efficient and effective statutory reporting function, identify planning and advisory opportunities and implement leading practice corporate governance procedures. You will be instrumental in driving efficiencies by offering leading practice solutions, including implementation of software solutions and robotic automation within our client’s reporting functions, with a focus on interpreting data rather than inputting data.

**Your key responsibilities**

Drawing on your compliance experience, you will help to lead organisations to identify risk areas and to develop planning and structuring ideas. Working with a diverse range of clients, you will provide technical advice on how to manage their compliance obligations and assist them with their accounting calculations and reconciliations. You will also have the opportunity to work alongside a global team, including project management and liaison between clients, their auditors and EY’s speciality tax practice areas.

**Skills and attributes for success**

+ Technical skills in statutory reporting with experience of preparation under different reporting frameworks, principally NZ IFRS

+ Ability to develop strong and broad relationships with clients and provide a high level of client service

+ Ability to work with a number of different clients and internal stakeholders on multiple deadlines

+ Demonstrable experience in management and leadership, utilising strong interpersonal skills in effectively managing a team

**To qualify for the role you must have**

+ Relevant statutory reporting preparation experience, ideally gained in a chartered accounting or corporate environment

+ Strong technical skills, with experience of NZ IFRS

+ Drive to utilise resources to research reporting and legislative obligations

+ Leadership experience within a complex organization

**What we look for**

We’re interested in leaders with a genuine creative vision and the confidence to make it happen. You can expect plenty of autonomy in this role, so you’ll also need the ability to take initiative and seek out opportunities to improve our current relationships and processes. If you’re serious about corporate reporting and ready to take on some of our clients’ most complex issues, this role is for you.

**What working at EY offers**

We offer a competitive remuneration package where you’ll be rewarded for your individual and team performance. Our comprehensive Total Rewards package includes support for flexible working and career development, and with FlexEY you can select benefits that suit your needs, covering holidays, health and well-being, insurance, savings and a wide range of discounts, offers and promotions. Plus, we offer:

+ Support, coaching and feedback from some of the most engaging colleagues around

+ Opportunities to develop new skills and progress your career

+ The freedom and flexibility to handle your role in a way that’s right for you

EY is committed to being an inclusive employer and we are happy to consider flexible working arrangements. We strive to achieve the right balance for our people, enabling us to deliver excellent client service whilst allowing you to build your career without sacrificing your personal priorities. While our client-facing professionals can be required to travel regularly, and at times be based at client sites, our flexible working arrangements can help you to achieve a lifestyle balance.

The preferred applicant will be subject to employment screening by EY or by their external third party provider.
