To Clients

Our real-time knowledge of the tax population in each major location, combined with our fast & effective search techniques means that we are able to produce high quality shortlists very quickly in any geographical location – usually within just three weeks.

Not only do we help recruit tax professionals for our clients, we are also often asked for our advice on the size, shape & structure of a Tax Department; in preparing first draft job descriptions; and considering gender & cultural diversity issues.

If you have any specific diversity issues, we recommend Birdsoup – a consultancy on a mission to help organisations to harness the untapped potential of their female employees. Birdsoup focuses on identifying the areas that impact women’s careers and work with companies to find innovative and effective solutions that help attract, retain and promote women.

To Candidates

We offer more than just an introduction to our clients. By meeting as many of our clients globally as possible & having recruited for so many of our clients for so long, we are able to provide background information on the history of any given Tax team. We also provide detail on why the company is recruiting; what the challenges are to be faced in the role; what the attractions of the role are; and a very clear picture of exactly what the client is looking for. We also help you prepare for each interview.

Additional Services

We enjoy a highly successful relationship with a specialist tax search consultancy in the US, called TaxSearch Inc. We recommend all our clients to them whenever they need to recruit in the US. In turn, TaxSearch Inc recommends all of its clients to BPA whenever they are looking to recruit anywhere outside of the US. TaxSearch Inc.’s sister company, TaxTalent is the online career and leadership development portal for tax professionals. Membership includes free access to expert coaches, mentors, resources, content and valuable tools for both career and leadership growth.

We also provide benchmarking services to clients across the globe; realistic careers advice to candidates in need of it; and an annual global tax market assessment (prepared in conjunction with TaxSearch Inc).
