Tax & Treasury

Responsive recruitment within a changing tax & treasury landscape

With so many forces at play, there’s become an increasing reliance on high performing tax & treasury teams.

As we look at such profound changes – from globalisation, finance transformation, digitalisation, and the implementation of BEPS – businesses are now actively adopting more thoughtful approaches to tax, creating a heightened profile of the ‘tax professional’ & ‘treasury professional’ in the global market. With evolving from its traditional silo to the centre stage of finance, businesses now face intense competition in the search for talent.

In this changing landscape, a responsive approach to recruitment is pivotal to mapping out and engaging tomorrow’s talent. This is where we come in.

Alex and his team have become a key part of our Vertex global expansion in EMEA. Challenging him to help in sourcing quality candidates, as well as the communication to get them hired, is superb. If you need someone to help you expand in Europe and can’t have feet on the ground, Alex is a must have to success!


Alex is working with Avalara on building out its European VAT compliance and technology teams. He has brought a huge range of outstanding potential hires, very few of which we haven’t gone ahead and interviewed. A larger than regular proportion were hired. We put that down to Alex’s specialism and deep knowledge of the European VAT market. He has always offered a highly professional and flexible service, and I would highly recommend him to other recruiters.


Alex is my go-to consultant for all things VAT. He’s been able to source candidates for some very hard to fill roles. He always keeps me updated on the candidates and provides great insight into the market. He’s also very good at keeping in touch with his candidates after they start with us and feeding back on their thoughts. Alex is a truly professional agent who knows his industry inside out.
