We are recruiting for a Senior Associate to join our Corporate Tax and Incentives team. 

Whilst our team is based principally in Bristol, we operate national service lines and your client base is not limited by location. We work entirely on the basis that the best-placed individual supports the client. Therefore, this role can be based in Bristol or Manchester, on a flexible, hybrid working basis.

This role can be full time or part-time (3 or 4 days a week).

TLT is an innovative and collaborative firm, and we are proud to have been named Law Firm of the Year at the Legal Business Awards 2023. This marks the third year in a row TLT has presented with this accolade in industry awards – having previously been named Law Firm of the Year at The Lawyer Awards in 2021 and the British Legal Awards in 2022.  


Your Role

As a Corporate Tax and Incentives specialist, you will provide a premium service to our clients, ensuring the advice and support is of the highest quality.  We expect you to develop into a sector expert and be viewed as a business advisor by our clients.

  • Supervise and support newly qualified Associates and Trainees within the team.

As outlined by our impressive track record of promotions, we place a high value on training and development.  We would expect the successful candidate to play a central role in developing the more junior members of the team to ensure they reach their potential, whilst also encouraging your own development, with a clear pathway to progression.
