Group Tax  is part of  Rabobank’s CFO domain with its ambition to be Chief Value Officers for the organization.

The head office  Tax team is organized both functionally (by tax areas) as well as in different tax squads. The squads are cross functional teams dealing with important tax themes such as client tax integrity, tax assurance, tax public affairs and global transfer pricing.

Besides advising on your tax expertise, your role as Tax Projects Manager is focused on the new global tax initiatives and regulations. You will be part of a wide variety of tax projects (not specifically linked to a specific tax area) within the whole Rabobank organization (both in NL Retail as well as internationally in our Wholesale and Rural businesses). Examples of some initiatives that you could get involved in, are:

  • Cross border work project implementation
  • OECD Pillar 2 implementation

The ideal candidate is a tax professional who likes to work on tax related projects, someone who is result oriented, takes initiative and has the ability to be pushing projects further. Due to the wide variety of the projects your specialization in a certain tax area is less important. In this role you add value to the organization and your colleagues based on your skills in combination with your tax knowledge. Furthermore:

  • You have approximately between 4 and 15 years working experience and want to turn your career from tax advisory, inhouse tax lawyer or governmental authority into acting as an in-house tax professional with a broad mandate, decision power and related responsibility in a leading international banking environment.
