The guest is on the episode is Georgiana Head, a specialist in tax recruitment. We look at a range of topical issues including


  • A review of the current taxation recruitment market in late 2023

  • A review of the salary pay rounds in 2022 and 2023. Are your pay rises too much or too small? Or alternatively is your (i.e. employee) pay too low and not keeping pace with the market?

  • The current position taken on Working from Home (WFH) by both employees and employers

  • What other benefits are expected by tax employees and how important is work-life balance in the tax workplace?

  • How to improve your chances of recruitment success through the interview process?

  • How is remote interviewing being used by the tax profession?

  • Overtime – how the firm’s approach can influence recruitment success and what every employee should look out for

  • A review of the use of psychometric testing, including Myers-Briggs.


Georgiana is without doubt an expert on tax recruitment. She welcomes calls and enquiries from both employers and employees. This can be a chat through current remuneration levels to a vacancy or for employees looking to move jobs. Georgiana’s approach is to build business relationships and not to churn employees from job to job.
