The Head of Partnership Tax will lead the in-house tax function and be responsible for direct tax matters of all vehicles in the grouping worldwide, representing all vehicles in the grouping across all tax regimes worldwide when dealing with tax authorities and other external stakeholders. The role holder will advise on and implement initiatives to optimise the group's tax position and be alert to forthcoming changes in tax laws and practices across the group, communicating the commercial and strategic impact that these may have on the worldwide grouping as well as identifying tax planning opportunities where applicable.
