Our Finnish tax group is a fully integrated part of Bird & Bird's international tax practice offering our lawyers the opportunity to work together with their international colleagues. Within the tax group we also work in close co-operation with our other practice groups. Our ambitious Finnish tax team is featured as a one of the leading tax advisors in several legal directories such as World Tax, World Transfer Pricing and Chambers Europe.
As our tax lawyer you will have the opportunity to work in the middle of some of the most interesting business operations in Finland and to broaden your understanding of taxation and its relation to other fields of law as well as to learn about taxation's impact and relevance to our client's business activities. In this role you will work on varied business tax advisory projects consisting e.g. of international, domestic and M&A tax related assignments with domestic and international clients. As our team member we are also happy to invite you to take part in developing and marketing our Finnish and Nordic tax practice groups.
We are looking for a lawyer with at least 4-6 years' experience from domestic and international tax assignments, especially from the field of corporate income taxation. We expect you to have gained experience from different domestic and international corporate income tax questions from a business law firm, international audit company, tax consultancy company or similar. We consider experience from leading projects, e.g. related to M&A transactions as an advantage but this experience is not a requirement – you will soon learn these skills with us! For this position, we value good communication skills and eagerness to learn. We appreciate a real team player who takes the initiative and enjoys a fast-paced working environment. As an international team we require fluency in both Finnish and English.
We offer our employees an inspiring, supportive and professional working environment in the heart of Helsinki. We emphasise our values of quality, innovation and collaboration in our everyday work. Bird & Bird Finland was recognised by Corporate Spirit as one of the most inspiring workplaces of 2018 which signals a high employee engagement level. We strongly support training and development activities for our staff and we promote a flexible working environment, including work-life balance and remote working. For us a culture where you can develop yourself as a professional and individual being part of the team is important.
