You’ll enjoy a fast-tracked digital career that recognises your potential and rewards your ambition.

When you begin your digital career at RSM, you’ll enjoy a powerful combination of on-the-job learning and structured training – not to mention an impressive client list to work with. You’ll discover a culture that nurtures individuality and an environment where everyone is supported to reach their potential.

As part of our Early Digital Careers cohort, you will benefit from networking with other like-minded individuals who are starting their journeys in digital roles at RSM.

What does our tax technology team do?

Tax technology is the use of software, data and analytics to automate and streamline tax processes, such as calculating, reporting and filing taxes. Tax technology can help organisations to ensure they comply with the tax laws and regulations in different jurisdictions, as well as to improve the accuracy and efficiency of their tax operations.

Our tax technology team works with various tax specialisms, such as indirect tax (e.g., VAT), corporate tax, personal tax and employer tax. These are different types of taxes that businesses and individuals must deal with.

We help organisations to implement and optimise tax technology solutions that can handle the complexity and volume of tax data, as well as to adapt to the changing tax landscape. We also use data analytics to analyse tax data after any tax has been calculated to help flag potential errors and identify opportunities for improvement.

Tax digitalisation is a global trend that is transforming the way tax authorities collect and use tax information. In the UK, HMRC’s flagship initiative called "Making Tax Digital” aims to make tax administration more effective, efficient and easier for taxpayers. This initiative will affect various tax domains in the next 5-10 years, requiring businesses and individuals to report more transactional data and to ensure the quality of their tax data.

Our tax technology team can help businesses and individuals to prepare for this transition and to leverage the benefits of tax digitalisation, such as increased transparency, reduced risk and enhanced decision making.

What can you expect?

RSM’s early digital careers programme offers a range of informal and formal development opportunities. From day one, you will join with trainees across the firm to receive core training in professional and soft skills. Alongside this you will benefit from specific technology skills training focussed on our digital and data services, for example Agile project delivery, as well as learning how to use our core tools, including Alteryx and Power BI. We will also support professional qualifications for Tax and digital skills.

Following your basic enablement, you’ll join colleagues in delivering live client engagements. No two journeys will be the same, as each client experience is different, but you’ll have the opportunity to learn from experienced members of the team and understand how digital and data projects are delivered. This hands-on experience is invaluable as you take the next steps in your career.

What we look for

We’re on the lookout for students with a passion for digital and a ‘can-do’ attitude who are prepared to work hard and take on high levels of responsibility. We also look for team players who enjoy interacting with others and are curious about how digital technology can generate real benefit for businesses. As a digital advocate, you will be expected to share your knowledge and insights with your colleagues and clients and help them embrace the opportunities and challenges of the digital era.

You may be working on multiple projects at the same time, so time management and organisational skills are key. Confidence with numbers and business awareness is a must, but you’ll also need excellent communication skills and be able to forge strong working relationships with people from all backgrounds. Competency in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint is essential.

If that sounds like you, we know you’ll enjoy being part of our team.

Flexible working

At RSM we work hard to create an environment where our people can make a difference - to themselves, their career, their teams, and to the success of our firm and clients. We support all our people to work flexibly, to manage their family and other responsibilities alongside their work commitments; we believe this is key to achieving an inspiring and fulfilling working environment.

Our Recruitment Process

Please note, for those who perform well throughout our assessment process, should your first preference be unavailable, you could potentially be offered a role in another location or department. This would always be discussed with you in this instance.

RSM will only take one application into consideration per intake. We do not accept multiple applications to different vacancies.
