As 2014 comes to an end, we approach the time of year traditionally reserved for reflection – and eating.
Expat and employment tax have seen a big growth within the top 7 firms, with more to come in the approaching months. More exciting is the demand in the regions. We have been working with numerous partners from Southampton to St Albans, who are still keeping us on our toes! There is still a need in Reading for employment tax and expat individuals, which can be seen from the market as many people have jumped ship since the summer. The key focus within expat has been around the manager level in both London and outer regions.
Recently we have been involved in an exciting role with a US global advisory firm, who are seeking a senior person to join and grow their employment tax offering, which has also led to a further development with other firms for Director/Partner appointments.
This last quarter has been particularly exciting in terms of niche opportunities at the senior end. One of our clients, a specialist human resources law firm, has been expanding both in its existing areas and into new sectors. These include Employment Law, Immigration Law, Pensions Law, International Assignment Services and Indirect Tax. As a partner-led firm with high-level recruits from both the legal and accountancy markets, we foresee an exciting 2015 for them.
Insolvency & Restructuring continues to keep us busy and we are very pleased to have placed an Account Manager with a peer-to-peer lender, which was a brand new client for us! We also have vacancies in London for Administrators all the way through to Equity Partners. Further evidence that the Insolvency and Restructuring market is picking up. Another new client this month is a start-up who operates across the legal and accountancy market; we are confident we can help with their impressive growth plans which will mean a busy start to 2015.
The VAT market has showed growth and inspiring movement throughout 2014 and the tail end of the year is no exception. We’ve successfully placed senior VAT specialists into interesting roles, ranging from Big 4 heavyweight teams to VAT niche consultancies. And even as the year comes to a close, there are individuals lined up for movement at all spectrums of the team structure. Notably, the financial services sector has seen a boost in demand and another key trend is growth in the tax technology sector. For 2015, we expect these technology offerings to be the main focus of new growth.
We hope that your year has been successful, and you are all looking forward to a relaxing Christmas break. If you have any spare time, try to take a moment to think about what you want to achieve in 2015; if we can assist with your plan please do not hesitate to contact us.
