Working at Transurban is different; it's a place where you can see the benefits of your work play out in real life, every day. We create city-sized solutions-building and operating safer, smarter, and more sustainable roads-to solve pressing transport challenges that are slowing cities down.

About the role

We're seeking a Tax Consultant to provide technical tax advice and support the business across various matters, including projects, financing and tax compliance.

  • Get involved in delivering on tax compliance and reporting requirements for a portfolio of entities, gaining experience across various business areas and tax matters
  • Collaborate with the broader business outside the tax function to achieve desired business outcomes
  • Undertake research and prepare tax technical papers for internal review
  • Understand and be able to explain tax related implications and technical terms to non-tax technical stakeholders
  • Work with an experienced team to evolve the tax function through identifying areas for increased efficiency through the use of technology

This role will suit someone with a curious mind and transferrable skills and experiences, including:

  • Experience in the tax or business services team in a mid-tier chartered accounting firm
  • Alternatively, you have had experience in a similar role in an in-house tax function
  • CA/CPA or TIA qualified, or in the process of qualifying
  • Strong tax technical knowledge and experience with tax compliance and tax effect accounting reporting.
  • Experience in any areas of transfer pricing, GST, FBT and other indirect taxes will be well regarded
  • A natural problem solver and people person, you'll communicate well with colleagues and stakeholders and will contribute to a strong team culture
  • Juggling multiple priorities concurrently is your niche, you do this with ease and know how to ensure everyone has everything they need, and on time
  • You are naturally inquisitive and enjoy complexity - you want to understand our business and ensure our stakeholders have reliable tax information in making decisions

If you meet some of these requirements, but not all, we encourage you to submit your application.

With a career at Transurban, you'll enjoy a range of benefits, including:

  • A range of flexible working and leave options, including the option to purchase an additional six weeks of leave each year
  • 16 weeks paid parental leave (regardless of gender or carer status), with no waiting period, with Superannuation paid during unpaid leave as well
  • Learning and development opportunities to support your career interests
  • Health and wellbeing support-access to Headspace and our EAP program, wellness facilities, and more
  • Share offers and insurance benefits
  • Social activities, community give-back programs and paid volunteer days

We offer a range of flexible working and leave options, so you can balance your work and life commitments and interests. Have a conversation with us about how this could work for you.

We embrace diversity with a foundation of safety, wellbeing and inclusion; where everyone belongs. We treat everyone with fairness, consideration and respect, regardless of gender, gender identity, marital or family status, sexual orientation, age, ethnicity, religious beliefs, cultural or socio-economic background, perspective, and experience - whether they work for us or not.
