This leadership role will support your team in the provision of tax technical legal advice across the business.
The Legal Services unit sits within the newly formed Customer and Compliance Services group (CCS) and this leadership role will head up the Advice team in Takapuna. With a team made up of Solicitors (at different levels) and Technical Specialists, you’ll enjoy getting results and solving problems through your people rather than being “hands on” with your own technical case load.
About the role:
This is an excellent opportunity for a proven leader to escalate their managerial career. While this role requires a technical tax background, the focus will be on leading, coaching and developing the team. This role will also be involved in implementing system process improvements.
• Support and lead your team to provide tax technical legal advice across a variety of segments.
• Enable and motivate the team to work both proactively and reactively to help customers to get it right from the start.
• Foster a team environment and standard of delivery with a high level of customer service, solution focus and value add.
• Strong people leadership skills and obvious motivation for helping your team members develop and grow.
• Existing senior level experience in a legal or business advisory context.
• A NZ practicing certificate or ability to hold one.
• An innovative and solution focused approach.
• Excellent relationship management and ability to work effectively with our customer groups and wider networks.
• Sound decision making and compliance management skills with a focus on the customer experience.
This is a great opportunity to make your mark as a leader in a supportive and collaborative environment.
