Larger businesses often have a need for an internal VAT expert. When recruiting such a person they may not have the expertise to fully evaluate the VAT technical skills of the candidate they are presented with by recruitment agents.
CVC will not make the recruitment decision for you but our help in testing a candidate’s technical skills add an invaluable insight and minimise the risk of an expensive recruitment mistake and allow you to avoid employing a candidate more talented in presentation than VAT.
CVC can help you to judge your needs and tailor your recruitment accordingly. For example, your short term need may be for an experienced person but the requirements of the business may change over the coming years. Do you hire a less experienced person and build a short term support structure around them or hire a more senior person who may become bored as the role develops or continue to earn a salary significantly above that justified by the evolving role?
On occasion it can be difficult for a business to determine their indirect tax needs. A forthcoming change in VAT law or in business structure may give rise to an immediate need for in house VAT support but it may not be clear if there is an ongoing role. CVC can offer regular in house support, at any level, to see a business through a difficult period, or on a continuing basis. The advantage of this route over recruitment is that it allows the benefit of in house support to be assessed without a long term commitment.
Whatever your needs and concerns, CVC has the experience to assist you in making the right decision on recruitment matters. For further help, do contact us.
