Job description


We help our clients stay ahead of changes that impact their businesses, navigating complexity and risk. We deliver deep tax technical, people and legal expertise, while providing the critical context to make informed and compliant decisions. With clients ranging from multinational organisations and public sector bodies to entrepreneurs and family businesses, the work we do is diverse.

Hear from Ed Stacey, Tax People Leader about what a career in Tax could mean for you - from development, to our culture, to what we value in our people when building our team.


We are a Real Estate Tax team which focuses predominantly on ‘occupiers’ across the Inbound & Listed, Financial Services and Private Business client markets across the UK. We provide real estate tax advice over a wide range of topics including:

  • Corporate tax
  • Indirect Tax (VAT)
  • Stamp taxes
  • Capital Allowances 
  • Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)
  • Business Rates
  • Annual Tax on Envelope Dwellings (ATED)

We differentiate ourselves in the market by being multidisciplinary tax advisors, helping Heads of Tax and Financial Directors manage risk and achieve tax efficiencies in their transformation or property growth plans for their business.  We have experience in almost every sector and advise many Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 businesses. 

This is a fast growth business area established 3 years ago, building from PwC’s existing teams in Real Estate Tax and Innovation and Capital Incentives (ICI) (Capital Allowances and R&D). We have aspirations of growing to a £3m turnover business in 2 years’ time and becoming a £5m turnover business in 5 years’ time. 

The core team consists of 1x Director, 1x Senior Manager, x4 Managers. However the wider network team features 30 tax professionals including 6x Directors, 6x Senior Managers, and other Managers and Associates. This team brings together a number of different backgrounds and experiences including; accountings, tax advisors and surveyors. 

The Role
This role is perfect for a seasoned real estate tax professional from either a deals tax or industry background, who either wants a technical role or who instead wants to spend more time in a client facing advisory role.


  • As a Senior Manager within the team you will work on a varied portfolio of clients, with a particular emphasis on occupiers, which means you will be getting involved in advisory work covering a broad range of tax issues. You will also work closely with our existing team as well as our real estate network team, who are all hand picked specialists in their own areas. As a high growth business, the role will offer excellent progression opportunities due to scale of market. The team also has a track record of promotions across all grades over the last 3 years. 
  • You’ll be seen by clients as a ‘key advisor’ helping non real estate Heads of Tax, Finance Directors and CFO’s understand the various tax considerations when taking UK property including both leases and freeholds. We regularly travel nationally and internationally for client engagements and to deliver projects.
  • Beyond deals and transaction advisory work, you’ll also get involved in follow up projects. These range from client to client but can include; Capital Allowances, Indirect Tax, Business Rates and some forms of compliance. 

Essential Skills and Experience

  • You will have 5+ years of experience in a real estate tax background; deal tax generalists are highly preferred, although specialist backgrounds (Stamp Taxes, Indirect Tax, Capital Allowances etc) as well as corporate tax or tax accounting backgrounds with an interest in ‘branching out' are also highly desirable. An interest in property is essential in every case. 
  • The role is suitable for someone looking for a technical or commercial leadership role (or someone inbetween). A friendly and collaborative approach to new challenges would also help to fit in with the existing driven, diverse and talented team.
  • You will either be a chartered accountant, tax advisor or surveyor with tax experience. 
  • Flexible working, Culture, Networks, Inclusivity

Not the role for you?
Did you know PwC offer flexible contract arrangements as well as contingent work (ie temporary or day rate contracting)?
