Your main task will be to support with VAT compliance for the Group. You’ll analyse accounting information to prepare returns; working with our external advisors to ensure our returns are filed accurately and on time.
You will also be responsible for preparing analysis and support with the preparation of corporate tax filings & country by country reporting requirements.
You’ll work with other areas of the business to gather information required for the returns – finance, payroll, and properties as well as IT to ensure changes configured; and supporting IT with any VAT updates.
You will be looking to develop your knowledge and our experienced Group Tax team will be there to support you.
A bit about you
First and foremost, you’ll need to be a real team player, great with people and keen to lend a helping hand. Ideally you will also have exposure to working in an accounting role, with some tax experience.
We’ll also need someone who is highly organised and has a natural eye for detail, as this role requires accuracy. Experience of managing your own workload and working to tight deadlines is crucial.
You should also have an AAT qualification or equivalent (or be working towards this). You’ll need sound IT skills with experience in dealing with excel and preferably working with an accounting system like SAP.
Clarks, based in Somerset, England, has been at the forefront of innovative shoemaking since its foundation in 1825, when brothers James and Cyrus Clark made a slipper from sheepskin off-cuts. At the time it was ground-breaking; a combination of invention and craftsmanship that’s remained at the heart of what the brand does now.
In the Clarks archive of more than 22,000 pairs are shoes that have sparked revolutions and defined generations. From the original Clarks Desert Boot, first designed by Nathan Clark and launched in 1950 to the iconic Wallabee, each design has an instantly recognisable signature – a unique combination of craftsmanship and innovation that make it unmistakably Clarks.
Underpinned by a rich heritage and strong values, Clarks is a leading global footwear brand serving millions of consumers across the world, operating retail, wholesale, franchise and online channels in over 100 markets worldwide supported by nearly 6,000 employees across the world.
In February 2021, Clarks entered a new chapter in its history as it formed a partnership with LionRock Capital, positioning the iconic footwear brand for future success as it enters its third century.
