An overview of Tax

Jason Lester

In another life I could have become a teacher – I have always enjoyed helping people develop and realise their potential. Instead, I joined EY straight from University over 21 years ago and have been with the firm ever since.

I’ve been fortunate enough to lead the UK & Ireland Tax practice at one of the most exciting times. Fuelled by our strong growth over the last few years, we have a bigger sense of purpose and energy than ever before, with a clearer focus on our priorities.

We want to become the number one tax business; have the strongest brand; and be recognised as the most favoured employer. We are achieving this by focusing on unleashing the potential of our people in the market.

BEPS, EU audit reform and digital transformation are creating massive opportunities in the market for us. Every person in Tax, regardless of their grade, can seize these to increase their client-facing time and, in turn, improve the skills that help them succeed. This is what ‘unleashing our potential’ is about: increasing our market presence and giving our people exceptional career development and first class experiences.

There is a whole raft of opportunities open to our people. Join us and you, too, can have a truly dynamic career with a clear sense of direction.
