About the Team

Based in Nottingham and part of Business, Assets and International, Shares & Assets Valuation's (SAV) job is to provide specialist valuations on everything from chattels, livestock and shares to Intellectual Property as part of HMRC's compliance activity. We provide valuations for teams across HMRC, on both individual and company taxation.

Over the years SAV has developed a level of expertise and the breadth of the work undertaken by SAV requires the Business Analyst Valuers to be experts not only in valuation methodology but to have finely honed negotiation and communication skills too.

The role of this Business Analyst has been mapped onto the career pathway for the tax professional. The role will be focusing on Business Valuation. This is encompassed within the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and successful candidates will be expected to work towards RICS accreditation.

Job description

On successfully completing this first six-month section, our new BA's will join a 'general valuation' team. Under the guidance of more experienced colleagues, you will pursue an 18-month structured development programme of supervised casework to help you grow and progress smoothly into the role.

Following the completion of this consolidation training, you will be given responsibility for your own allocation of valuations.

Team members that are moving offices as a result of the Locations Programme will be entitled to a Moves Adjustment Payment for three years where they incur additional costs.

You will get more detail on this as part of targeted locations move communications.
