This is an exciting time to join Virgin Media (VM) as a UK Corporate Tax Manager. You will work closely with the Tax Director and Corporate Tax Senior Manager reporting into the Head of UK Tax (based at Liberty Global - VM’s parent Group) on projects across VM & LG. The UK Tax team is responsible for Corporate Tax, VAT and Employment Tax advice to the business. This role will require you to work across a complex, global, matrix environment, as part of the LG family, which will give you regular exposure to senior stakeholders within a relatively flat management structure.
