Who Is Hiring Tax Professionals? Behind The Scene Knowledge

Tax Jobs And Hiring Tax Professionals: What You Need To Know Now!

While talking to numerous hiring professionals this week, I want to share happy hiring stories with you. Although the public accounting firms are known to trim staffs after tax season, many are looking at what they can do to keep their tax professionals in place. They will look at who they can retire early first and then they are trimming salaries across the board. However, the tax professionals may have a different experience on salaries since there are not enough of them available to meet the demand. You can be guaranteed the demand will rise as a result of all the stimulus legislation and economic impact payments coming out of Washington D.C. Additionally, governments around the world are now making changes to their tax laws. Tax professionals are in for a very strong future in the profession. Tax experts with the experience of the Tax Reform Act under President Reagan in 1986 and the Tax Cuts And Jobs under President Trump in 2017 know what is coming. The future is big business in the tax profession.

My executive search clients are calling to share behind the scenes stories occurring right now for tax professionals. A client I have in San Francisco, CA has four openings we have been retained to fill. There was a fifth but this Tax Manager starts from Monday at home. When the stay at home initiative is lifted they will work from the office. Here is what the client did during the pandemic. First, they assured all employees their jobs were safe; they shipped all employees a company computer to their home; they sent all employees a check for $500 to cover any internet connection upgrade costs required from their homes; they then gave them an extra $100 for their favorite charity. They consistently do so much more for their employees. If anyone has 2-10 years of experience with family offices, partnerships or investment groups contact me now as I will let you know if you have the tax qualifications to join this extraordinary corporate team.

Looking For A Tax Job? Advice Of An Internationally Recognized Tax Recruiter

Looking For A Tax Job? Advice Of An Internationally Recognized Tax Recruiter

While speaking to an accounting firm principal recently, he mentioned layoffs in the firms. What I shared privately surprised him. Last week, several clients called needing to hire more people in their tax organizations. Yes, we are in the middle of a pandemic and corporate tax departments are actively hiring. In the words of one Tax Director, “We are in more than one hundred countries globally and are already set up to work remotely from home any day of the week. We have a lot of experience working remotely so we are getting our work done.”

Another fact you may find interesting, I recently placed a tax executive and they start this coming week working from home. Working remote was not in the job description. The company wired up a computer and sent it to their home. Fortunately, there are corporate decision-makers who take action and get things done no matter what the circumstances. They know tax increases are coming and are hiring trained tax experts in their tax departments now. They know there is a shortage of available trained tax expertise given the current and certainly future demand.

What is happening in the tax job market right now?

1. Baby Boomer tax professional early retirements are increasing the availability of jobs.
2. Tax reform and tax technology requires tax professionals with a new set of tools.
3. Tax professionals with software technology expertise are thriving in this market.
4. The skills and knowledge required are changing for tax professionals every day.
