KEVIN'S TESTIMONIALS

Testimonial by Rickard Luckin

Kevin helped me a secure a fantastic career development move and was supportive throughout the whole process. It had been a while since I’d interviewed and he really went much further than I’d expected. I can really recommend him if you’re thinking about a move in the tax sphere! – David Rose, Corporate Tax Manager at Rickard Luckin

The team at Pro-Tax never fail to deliver. Given the current circumstances with COVID the new-recruits bubble is forever shrinking, yet Kevin and his team were still able to have me sign off on a great new role within a matter of weeks! Kevin is very good at keeping in touch with his candidates through every step of the process – whether it be when he finds a good employer fit for you, prepping you for the interviews, a post-interview check up, reviewing contracts and also checking up on you after the first few days on the job. Pro-Tax really puts their clients at the forefront of their business and they make sure that both the candidate and employer gel well together and are actually happy post-placement, rather than treating you as just a business transaction. This is my second time working with the Pro-Tax team, showing that they are consistent with providing good results! – Recently Placed VAT Specialist

Testimonial by Rickard Luckin

Kevin at Pro-Tax seemed to instinctively know what we were looking for, not just in terms of technical ability but also the right type of personality for the role. Despite operating during COVID-19 restrictions the process went smoothly from Kevin’s first email to our offer being accepted (and done relatively speedily too). Throughout Kevin kept open the channels of communication to ensure everyone knew at what stage we were at. He has also shown that Pro-Tax do not have a “case closed, move on” policy, common amongst some employment professionals, by following up with both parties post-employment. This wasn’t a perfunctory “how is your meal?” enquiry; it was clear that Kevin was using this follow up to understand what went well and how to improve further on Pro-Tax’s already first class service. – Ian Marrow, Client Services Director, Rickard Luckin

Testimonial by BDO

As a fully qualified Tax Manager, I recently approached Kevin to enquire about wider opportunities in the Tax Investigations and disputes market. Kevin was highly recommended by a trusted friend and I was immediately impressed by his deep knowledge of the tax investigations market. He provided insightful and informal advice, committing a lot of time to helping me navigate the whole process. This really helped to streamline my options, which ultimately consisted of multiple competitive offers from top 6 firms. While facing the difficult and complex choice of which offer to accept, Kevin gave impartial and supportive advice, allowing us to work out the best choice for me as an individual. I would highly recommend Kevin and his team for any other individuals or firms looking to change roles or recruit in the tax investigations or wider tax market. – Dominic Hall, Tax Investigations Manager at BDO

Kevin was very helpful in securing me a change in roles moving out of the public sector. Throughout the process Kevin was in constant communication providing advice and thoughts on where I could go and we settled on a position and role that suited my ability and future plans. Really looked out for me and went the extra mile. – Tom Palmer, Assistant Manager at BDO

Testimonial by Stephanie Nunoo

I was at a point in my life where I wanted change and growth. Coming from the public sector and feeling like I had exhausted all the skills available, I wanted to experience life in the private sector and take advantage of the opportunities in the tax world. Kevin helped me secure my current job role as a Business Tax Senior. He demonstrated great understanding of what the company expected and as a result, was able to help me structure my interview and tailor my questions. I personally was amazed when he took the time to meet up with me to discuss things over before my interview. That calmed my nerves and restored my confidence. He was always readily available to provide feedback and encouragement after my interviews. Even after I had secured the job he always checked in to make sure I was settling in alright and enjoying it. I will strongly recommend Kevin to anyone looking for change, looking to make that bold move or a change in career, you certainly will be in good hands. – Stephanie Nunoo, recently placed Business Tax Senior

Testimonial by PwC

I had been with HMRC for 14 years and wanted to get into private practice. Kevin was superb in reviewing my experience and outlining what unique features I was bringing to the market. Kevin has a number of contacts across all the Big 4 and wider tax network and secured a number of potential interviews. He also used his knowledge of these to advise on best practice and approach. I don’t believe that I would have secured my new position at PwC without his help and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone considering a move in professional services. – D.C, Tax Investigations Manager at PwC

Testimonial by Haysmacintyre

Once again I would like to say a massive thank you for helping me secure the job role as a Business Tax Senior at Haysmacintyre. Without your hard work, it is fair to say I would not have secured this job. I am particularly happy with how well you communicated and kept me informed throughout the whole process, from any contact you had with my company to ensuring I was ready for the interview. The fact that you kept me informed eased my nerves and cleared any doubts I may have had. You were swift with your response, professional, transparent and honest. Last, but not least, the meeting we had prior to my second interview was very helpful as all the tips and pointers you gave me prepared me well. I felt confident walking into the building after that. After studying accounting and finance at University, it has always been a dream to work for an accountancy firm, complete my qualifications and be qualified. This I never saw happening until I was contacted by yourself, and with the help of all your colleagues at Pro-Tax that dream is now becoming a reality. – Stephanie Nunoo, Business Tax Senior at Haysmacintyre

Testimonial by Haysmacintyre

I was recommended Pro-Tax by a former colleague and I am glad that I took their advice. From start to finish the help I received was vital for me in securing my new job. All members of the team were extremely helpful, easy to get hold of and very knowledgable of their clients and what to expect at different stages of the recruitment process. Even though it’s early days I am very happy at my new firm and looking forward to what’s ahead. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Pro-Tax to anyone looking for a career move in Tax. – Alfie O’Dell, Tax Senior at Haysmacintyre

Testimonial by BDO

Overall the experience was fantastic. I felt Pro-Tax were completely on my side and guided me through the process well. We had several meeting to discuss different firms and the best options for myself. To put it simply, I couldn’t have done this on my own and if it wasn’t for the hard work put in by the Pro-Tax team I would have struggled to achieve the same results. from helping me prepare for interviews, giving me background on the firms and people and listening to my wants and needs and delivering them. What I found really excellent was that the Pro-Tax team send me a schedule for the week and organised all of the interviews. The whole process (from walking in the door to getting an offer) took about three weeks. I really enjoyed meeting so many different people and learning about their businesses and I wouldn’t have had this opportunity without Pro-Tax’s contacts. Most of all, I appreciated all of the hard work that the Pro-Tax team did for me. Thanks guys and keep up the great work. – Robert Palmer, Tax Manager at BDO
