Kevin Racher

Associate Director - Tax

I manage two fantastic Taxation teams focusing on the London & Regional markets.

Being a very well connected business within the Taxation market, we have deep rooted, well-established relationships with Big 4, Top 20, Mid-Tier and specialist boutiques firms. We have a great knowledge base within Pro-Tax where a number of our consultants are actually ex-Tax professionals 

With over 17 years of recruitment experience, I have been used to managing London and regional teams. Pro-Tax is a great entrepreneurial business that gives you all the recruitment tools to develop and succeed.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my family and friends so the weekends are busy spent catching up with both! I enjoy running, football and golf and trying to keep fit when my other past time of drinking wine allows. If I was not in recruitment, I guess I would like to have been a professional golfer. Playing golf in the sun, enjoying the admiration of the crowds, and being paid to play golf…..3-2-1 you're back in the room!

What people say about Kevin

Thanks Kevin! We are very happy with Pro-Tax and the service they provide. Candidates are often of the right calibre and your team are very easy to deal with. If I have to go to an agent then you would be the first one that I would call!


I was very impressed by Kevin's proactive attitude and am personally grateful for his help and support. I have found him to be professional, approachable and very practical in his approach. Thanks again for your help!


Due to personal circumstances, I was having to look at moving jobs as well as relocating from London to Yorkshire. I was nervous about the move and had lots of doubts along the way, but I want to give full credit to ProTax, particularly Kevin ...

5 Things You Must Know Before You Take The Job

Posted by Kevin Racher

Are you a Tax Manager looking to move jobs within the new year? Taking a new Tax job, whether it be a Tax Senior Manager to a Tax Director, can be exciting but also an overwhelming experience. Besides using a Tax recruiter to ease you through the process, there are a number of things you should think about before committing to a role. In this short article, I'll give you my top five considerations when deciding on whether to accept a job offer or not. Why do they do what they do? Whether it’s a Big 4 firm, a commerce or industry business, a Top 10 or a boutique firm, it is important to understand exactly why they do what they do. The passion behind the senior stakeholders in the business will directly affect how they work and how they work with you, as well as how the entire business operates. It is also important to join a business that has beliefs aligned to your own. If your work ethic is different to the company you join, you may find it difficult to adjust. Culture and Office Environment There is nothing worse than going through the entire interview process, meeting colleagues and feeling assured that this was the right place for you, to then find on your first day a culture you are just not happy with. Always ask in your interviews what the culture is like. Do they have nights out with the team? Do they have regular sporting activities? How do the team deal with another member being sick? What are the company values? These questions and the responses will allow you to evaluate the company’s culture. The discussion about the office values will also help clarify the position’s work-life balance and will allow you to fully understand how the team support each other. Workload Would you want to go into a job thinking you will have a few small projects to start with, only to find out that there is a huge job that you will be working solely on for months? It is important to know what your workload will be before you join so that you can prepare yourself and efficiently manage your time. Are you ready to take on the challenge of restructuring a tax team, or would you rather join a firm that is more established for you to develop in your own role? Current Events You should research the current events before going for an interview. It is even more important that you know exactly what is going on within the team you are joining so that you can hit the ground running. Every industry has sources to keep you abreast of the news in both your sector and your company depending on which organisation you are looking to join. The past & the future How long has the company been around? What were the major events that lead the company to be the way that it is now? What are their successes and failures? The way a company and senior stakeholder team learn from mistakes will tell you everything you need to know about how they will manage you and your team. A senior leadership team that takes the time to train and develop a team who have mistakes may suggest a better attitude towards their people, whereas a leadership team that let go a team that makes mistakes may allude to their priority for excellence only. As for the future, while all companies will be focused on growth, it is how they plan to grow that can tell you a lot about the business and how that business will run with you. After taking the time to assess the above points and talking them through with a tax recruiter, you should not only have a better understanding of the company but also a better idea of exactly what you want to get out of this new opportunity.
