In the digital era we are going through, one of the main challenges of tax advisors is to efficiently deal with massive amounts of data in order to rapidly identify and advise their clients as to key areas of risks and opportunities detected.

  • Analyzing and popularizing the results to return them to non-data specialists
  • Keeping abreast with industry practices / regulatory requirements and formulating data management methodology
  • Developing more junior employees regarding the use of digital solutions, by training and coaching them, by giving them technical support and by supervising their work;
  • Building strong relationships both with our clients and with our worldwide network
  • Taking part in internal and client workshops and projects



Your skills
  • Hold a Degree (Bachelor or Master) in Statistics, Mathematics, Data Management, Business intelligence or information technology
