The Tax Director, EMEA, will manage – in collaboration with the broader DNI tax team members, Discovery operations across Europe in all aspects of tax planning, consultation, design and audit (including supporting the Transfer Pricing team on functional analysis and business changes) and will oversee compliance, tax provision and reporting for businesses operating within EMEA (but often with global activity). This position reports to the SVP, Tax Planning and Development in London. Depending on commercial operations, growth or divestiture, the territories within EMEA assigned to this role may shift with changes in the business or in resources.
We work as a team. This position requires a team player that is willing to fluidly share the work burdens of the international group and expand role as needed. This role sometimes operates as a Director managing others but more often as a direct participant such that day to day will be a mix of leading on design and implementation, review of a tax provision, managing an audit, or completing and filing a WHT application. Each Director will have stakeholders they are directly responsible for (for example, a 1:1 relationship with a regional CFO, or the legal team supporting Digital) but the projects require collaboration across the global tax team and EY Co Sourcing members. Effective communication and project management skills are critical to the success of this role.
Discovery is a matrixed organisation, as is the global tax team. This role will require effective communication and collaboration with the SVP International Tax, the VP Global Tax Reporting and the VP of Transfer Pricing, all based in the US, as well as effective oversight, management of and coordination with the EY Co Sourcing team. This position works across various disciplines including accounting, FP&A, Treasury, Legal, Human Resources, and GBS (shared service centre). It is requisite that this role is interactive with the regional CFOs, local (regional) teams and commercial teams.
