Senior Manager, Domestic Tax

Who we are

You know those big cities that still feel like small towns? Where everyone's friendly and helps each other out? That's like Grant Thornton. Except here we're all professionals and there isn't a mayor or a general store. What we're trying to say is that we're a very different kind of professional services firm where culture is at the heart of who we are and what we do. We employ about 2000 people across Canada, and we truly care about helping our clients, colleagues, and communities thrive. That's what's most important to us. We're building a special organization that's purpose driven and as we grow we always want to remember what your favourite milkshake flavour is.

As a Senior Manager, Tax your responsibilities will include:

  • Providing a wide range of tax services which may include complex corporate reorganizations, merger and acquisition planning, estate and succession planning, and general tax advice to dynamic and growing privately held businesses
  • Managing and reviewing corporate tax planning and compliance engagements 
  • Improving on the financial operation of the practice by developing and maintaining productive relationships with clients from a variety of disciplines
  • Playing a leadership role in the business unit, service line, community and firm by actively contributing to the development and execution of the business plan
  • Sharing knowledge for the development and implementation of strategy to build the business
  • Contributing to new business development by understanding Grant Thornton and its service lines, as well as utilizing your credibility in the field
  • Engaging, coaching and developing talented professionals within the practice to maximize their potential for growth

If you're a bit like us, you're driven to connect with how others are feeling and thinking. Here we walk in others shoes before taking action. Just imagine being part of a team that puts we before me, where flexibility is a mindset, and where you trust your colleagues have your back. At Grant Thornton, you'll work with inspiring leaders who support your development, both personally and professionally. This is a place where your insatiable curiosity enables you to think, see and hear from a variety of perspectives, a place where every day is different and having the courage to grow is part of who you are. And when all this comes together, well that's when the magic happens.
