  • Manage ICAEW’s technical policy activities in SME business tax. The manager will take lead responsibility for projects and activities assigned to the SME business committee, consulting with members on technical and practical issues and preparing representations to Government and other stakeholders, including the efficient and smooth running of meetings and timely delivery of assigned projects.
  • Take responsibility for developing high quality practical content for members on business tax to support the Faculty’s portfolio of products and services and, more generally, supporting the Tax Faculty’s digital content strategy.

Specific duties will vary from time to time in line with the business needs.
