Given the substantial rise in the demand for tier one tax professionals in the GCC region, it is vital to form recruitment teams that will ensure that high-quality and skilled tax professionals are placed within organisations.

Cooper Fitch’s tax recruitment practice is the most advanced of all firms in the GCC. Viacheslav is challenged with continuing to develop the sector further in order to service the region’s tax market, which can be characterised by unprecedented advancements in regards to tax systems and the extreme shortage of tier one tax professionals, particularly in indirect tax. Mr Shakhov has been developing this area for the past 18 months, along with a large tax research team that Cooper Fitch has in place, with the aim to expand the team of recruitment professionals that are specialising in tax.

During this time period, Cooper Fitch has been extensively supporting the Big 4 and other professional advisory firms, public sector and industry organisations to aid our clients’ tax recruitment and to build their tax teams. This has recently been heightened significantly as we been advising on VAT recruitment and placing tier one global talent in the GCC.

The development of the tax recruitment practice, in addition to appointing Viacheslav as the head of the division, are important elements of Cooper Fitch’s strategy within the Middle East. Considering the rapid increase in the demand and requirement of tax professionals in the region, we believe this is the optimal time to take this step.

With almost 20 years of recruitment experience and developed global networks, Cooper Fitch is in a strong position to help organisations to transform and transition through the current challenges and assist tax professionals with developing their careers in the GCC.
