Rutherford Cross is working in partnership with a leading Big 4 firm in the Netherlands to assist them in the recruitment of a VAT Manager for their team to be based in either Amsterdam or Rotterdam.

The Netherlands is a small, densely populated country, lying mainly in Western Europe but also including three islands in the Caribbean. The European part of the Netherlands borders Germany to the east, Belgium to the south, and the North Sea to the north west, sharing maritime borders with Belgium, the United Kingdom and Germany. The three largest and most important cities in the Netherlands are Amsterdam, The Hague and Rotterdam. Amsterdam is the country’s capital and financial centre, The Hague holds the Dutch seat of government and the port of Rotterdam is the biggest port of Europe making the Netherlands the world’s second largest exporter of food and agriculture products after the USA. The Netherlands has a developed economy and has been playing a special role in the European economy for centuries. Since the 16th century, shipping, fishing, trade and banking have been leading sectors of the Dutch economy. Other major industries include chemicals, metallurgy, machinery, electrical goods, and tourism.

The Netherlands is a true cultural delight with its gently beautiful country and its masterpieces, canal towns and windmills. With its canals and massive harbour, the city reclaimed from the sea offers countless opportunities to drift. In Amsterdam you never know what you’ll find: a hidden garden, a vintage shop, a Dutch gin distillery or an old monastery-turned-classical-music venue. Only 1 hour away from Amsterdam, Rotterdam is bursting with energy! Vibrant nightlife, a diverse, multi-ethnic community, an intensely interesting maritime tradition and a wealth of top-class museums all make it a must see part of the Netherlands! The Netherlands has 20 national parks and hundreds of other nature reserves that include lakes, heathland, woods, dunes and other habitats as well as being the home to many well-known painters and it also holds the record for the tallest people in the world!

This is a very exciting opportunity with the Netherlands being the first port of call for many well-known international businesses looking to invest and set up their European base. The Netherlands can offer extremely advanced Indirect Tax work so this opportunity will be fantastic for your career development. This role is with a Big 4 firm and it will be based in either the Rotterdam or Amsterdam office. The ideal profile will be someone who speaks fluent Dutch and has approximately 4-6 years’ Indirect Tax experience.
