HEAD OF TAX LAW, MAJOR INVESTMENT FUND, ABU DHABI

 

CLIENT: We have been instructed by a key investment and asset management entity in Abu Dhabi to help them find a new Head of Tax to add to their legal team.

 

ROLE: You will advise on a wide range of international legal and tax matters, such as timely and accurate filings, monitoring jurisdictional developments and improving structuring.

 

CANDIDATE: It is essential that you have a law degree from a recognised university and CPA or CA qualification will an advantage. There are a number of other essential criteria:

 

- At least 5+ years' post qualified experience in US tax compliance. Candidates without US specific experience cannot unfortunately be considered.

- Detailed knowledge of US federal and State tax

- Specific working knowledge of Section 892

- You will need to have worked in a blue chip investment manager / hedge fund / PE or Big Four practice.

 

You need not have Middle East experience but will have to come from an international financial centre. Note this is not intended to be a very senior role and is more of a mid-level position in the organisation. It is therefore unlikely that anyone with excess of 10 years' experience would suit

 

Please contact us for a detailed job description and confidential call.
