‘Dreams Come True’ at BLT



BLT has decided to adopt a new company charity called Dreams Come True.

The charity work with sick children who are undergoing long and difficult rounds of hospital treatment, or whose prognosis is terminal. They allow the children to live a dream, ranging all the way from eating their favourite ice cream to meeting their idols for the day! BLT takes there Corporate and Social Responsibility seriously, and were keen to sponsor a charity that was smaller and less exposed to mainstream funding. The company felt strongly about supporting Dreams Come True as many of us have kids ourselves and were touched when an ambassador for the charity came to speak to us and informed us how our donations would be used.

The idea was initially proposed by one of our colleagues Sarah, who is taking part in the London Marathon on the 13th of April on behalf of the charity. Of course we will all be down at the race giving Sarah typical BLT support and encouragement throughout the day and we are also planning on doing many more events throughout the year. Keep an eye on the website to see what else we get up to! We wish Sarah the very best of luck for the run (she will need it)! Below is the link to her fundraising page, please feel free to visit and donate as every little helps! We have also included a link to the Dreams Come True page so that you can learn more about the amazing work they do.

Be a great mate….and earn yourself an i-Pad Air with BLT’s referral scheme!

Are you a really great friend? Do you always have your buddies’ best interests at heart?

For example if you knew a friend that was considering looking for a new job in their Indirect Tax / Management Consultancy career you’d be sure to tell them about that perfect role you’d seen advertised with BLT. You’d be filled with pride that you were thoughtful enough to think of your friend and to have guided them towards a specialist recruiter in their field… but best of all if your referral is eventually placed by us you will receive your very own, brand new i-Pad Air! It’s a win-win situation as your pal will have found a great new role and you will have received a great new gadget to play with.

“I don’t want / already have an i-Pad Air” I hear you shout – don’t worry we can show our appreciation by making a donation to a charity of your choice.

This offer only applies to any referrals made after 1st of February 2014. Any referrals need to be made before 31st of July 2014 when this offer ends and does not apply to the referral of any candidate already actively registered with BLT.

Indirect Tax: Big 4 Opportunities

Have you ever considered working for one of the Big 4 firms or been thinking about a return to a practice environment? Well there is no better time than now to consider a career in the Big 4 as we kick off the New Year with all of the firms particularly active in their recruitment activities.

There are a few ‘hot’ sectors that many firms are looking to add specialists to: financial services and indirect tax litigation teams are particularly in growth mode, so an interest in (or experience in) these sectors would be particularly handy. However recruitment is not restricted to these specialisms and there is a need for good candidates with the ambition and skill set required to succeed in a leading consultancy environment.

Working for a Big 4 firm offers candidates access to a high profile portfolio of clients and excellent scope for career progression and resources are needed at a variety of levels. There are a number of specific needs in some of the firms at the grades in the run up to Manager level, and all of the firms are alive to senior strategic appointments that can add niche skills to their existing offering, whether at Senior Manager or Director grade (or potentially higher!). With recruitment drives gathering pace, there is no better time to assess the options.

For more information on all of the opportunities on offer, each firm’s structure, team specialisms and their unique company cultures please get in touch.
