Employment tax has taken a quantum leap with numerous roles within the Big4 firms keeping us busy. As these teams continue to develop and strive for more variety, the options for the candidates are becoming more attractive but this in turn obviously leads to the competitive spirit within the companies. It doesn’t help that it is the holiday/review period so there are highs and lows across the board, as many start to consider their future progression. The in-house market has been quiet as usual, but sometimes a diamond appears from the rough and it never takes long to fill those roles.
The reward and incentives market is still showing a high demand as ‘reward’ establishes itself as that keyword in every business. It remains eventful in both in-house and practice with yet more exciting in-house roles including one with a FTSE100 company coming through our books alongside those with the Big4, keeping us all on our toes.
The law trait seems to be a big pull in VAT at the moment with Harvey Sutton managing to place a number of lawyers within the Big4 firms this month, highlighting the drive for variety.
