WELLINGTON MANAGEMENT

Wellington Management offers comprehensive investment management capabilities that span nearly all segments of the global capital markets. Our investment solutions, tailored to the unique return and risk objectives of institutional clients in more than 50 countries, draw on a robust body of proprietary research and a collaborative culture that encourages independent thought and healthy debate. As a private partnership, we believe our ownership structure fosters a long-term view that aligns our perspectives with those of our clients.

POSITION
The International Tax Team
The International Tax team is a group of 3 tax lawyers and accountants based in London and Boston whose work touches every aspect of Wellington Management's business globally.

The team advises the firm and the firm's sponsored funds on non-US tax issues arising on international investments (equity and fixed income), on structuring the funds that make such investments and on tax issues that may affect our clients. The team is also involved in advising on international tax issues in relation to separate account client issues, including negotiation of Investment Management Agreements, and advising the Wellington Management Group LLP and its affiliates in relation to the group structure, taxation of profits globally and employee benefit plans.  If there is a non-US tax element to any part of our business, the International Tax team is involved.

The successful candidate will see all aspects for Wellington Management's business, and have the opportunity to work in a global team and advise on international tax issues.  Some international travel may be required.

The Position
We are seeking to recruit a tax professional to join the London International Tax team as a Tax Analyst.  The ideal candidate should have between 2 and 5 years of practical multijurisdictional tax consulting and compliance experience gained at a top tier accounting or law firm and familiarity with international fund structures. 

The role will include:

  • Supervisory responsibility for outsourced international tax compliance for each of the firm's sponsored funds in over 150 jurisdictions;
  • Working with service providers to support documentary submissions and provide sign-off and support for tax audits globally;
  • Oversight and support for FIN 48 (ASC 740) tax provisioning for all investments across Wellington's sponsored funds, including judgment calls on conditionally taxable investments;
  • Supporting the firm's fund services teams during local market registration and de-registrations;
  • Undertaking double tax treaty analysis for sponsored funds and separate account clients;
  • Involvement in treaty-based withholding tax relief and reclaims;
  • Review of investment management agreements and other legal documentation for tax-specific requirements;
  • Deal related work as it relates to non-US taxes, including obtaining legal advice globally, and review of share purchase agreements, liaising with custodians and local tax agents; and
  • General support of the International Tax team as required.


Skills
The work is broad-based international tax work, and the candidate need not have expertise in all the areas above - the capacity to ask questions and learn quickly will be just as beneficial where they have less experience.  We work in a fast-paced, team-oriented and dynamic environment. The candidate needs to be extremely organized and efficient, with excellent MS Excel skills and have a positive and collegial attitude and high level of professionalism.  They will be an enthusiastic, self-motivated individual with strong people skills.
