Senior Tax specialist

  1. Montréal
  1. Corporate

The senior tax specialist will be part of a tax group (composed of more than 40 professionals, organized by regions) of a multinational company based in Montreal. The senior tax specialist will provide tax advice to business development teams and controllers in the assigned region. This person will also support the tax managers with international tax planning initiatives and the application of Canadian Foreign Affiliate rules.

SNC-Lavalin is big enough to have resources and interesting, varied tasks, while the tax team is small enough that a single person has autonomy and can make an impact. If you are curious, have a strong team attitude with organizational skills, and are looking for a compelling place to work, do not hesitate to apply.
