Director of Tax

Our client is a very successful entrepreneur who is running a growing company with a diverse number of entities. As a result of this continuing growth, the time has now come to hire a full time Director of Tax. Reporting to the CFO, with the assistance of a small team and their external public accounting firm, you will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of tax for the president and other family members including personal, corporate and trust matters. 


This is a challenging role, which requires absolute trust and discretion, loyalty and a high level of competency.  The successful candidate does not have to be an expert in any one area of tax but must have a high overall competency level which has been built up over a number of years working as a dedicated tax professional. Ideally, you will be working in public practice at the Senior Manager of Principal level with owner managed organizations where you are responsible for handling the corporate and personal tax related work for the owners.

Your technical qualifications will include:

CA designation (preferred but not mandatory)

CICA Level III (Level II if completed before Level III was introduced)

Excellent English communication skills

A professional trustworthy presence which will instill confidence and trust in our client

We recognize that the Ottawa tax community is very tight knit and opportunities like this do not come along often. Please feel free to apply to us in absolute confidence – don’t miss out on this opportunity!
