Working in a US Tax Senior job abroad
The Big Four accountancy firms – Deloitte, EY, KPMG and PwC – all have a significant presence in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda to service the numerous offshore financial services sector clients that have established operations in these world-class jurisdictions. This creates US Tax Senior job opportunities for ambitious CPAs who would like to experience something out of the ordinary in a friendly, safe environment that enjoys an enticing mix of Caribbean, British and American cultures.
Working as a US Tax Senior, you’ll assist offshore businesses, individuals and organisations with their US and international tax strategy. And as a member of a professional team, you’ll enjoy responsibility for collaborating with your colleagues to cover all aspects of engagements including planning, fieldwork, research on technical issues, drafting tax filings, coordinating wrap-up of reviews and communication to ensure that clients remain tax-compliant at all times.
The work is challenging and stimulating; you’ll learn a great deal very quickly.
Learn whilst you earn
You’ll enhance your industry insights and technical skills as an offshore US Tax Senior to develop comprehensive, integrated tax solutions for your clients meaning you’ll benefit from professional growth.
Continued professional development of US Tax Seniors and US Tax Consultants on the Islands is highly valued. It’s achieved via a mix of in-house and external training courses and seminars. Active financial and other support for additional qualifications such as the CFA is also encouraged.
Enjoy the corporate culture
There’s more to life than just work, of course. A US Tax Senior job in the Caribbean best suits CPAs who are outgoing and enjoy an active, outdoor lifestyle: Five minutes after closing the office door, you can be at the beach or playing tennis with friends. (Take a moment to think what it will be like.) You’ll have plenty of opportunities to mix with people from different countries and benefit from significant personal as well as professional growth.
To be successful in getting an international US Tax Senior job, you’ll need to hold the US CPA designation and have at least 2 years’ US tax experience, ideally gained with Deloitte, EY, KPMG or PwC, though applications from mid-size firms are also encouraged. Excellent written and oral communication skills are also important, as is the ability to prioritise your work to achieve client deadlines.
