Senior VAT Consultant - Zaventem


The Power of Being Understood!

That is who we are and how we do business around here at RSM Belgium. By truly listening to our people, clients and society and finding the right answer to their needs. And by working on long term relationships with our clients and our people, whereby our people ultimately get the possibility to take up final signing responsibility towards our clients. And this in an international environment since RSM is one of the few real international accounting networks with worldwide coverage.

You've worked hard to get where you are today. And you're so ready to use your unique skills, talents, and personality to achieve great things. Then RSM might be something for you. We are an organisation in full growth, with many challenges and opportunities, with pitfalls and growing pains. But our great ideas, curiosity, and our collaboration, make us take small steps with a big impact. We want to make the world a better place, by how we do business and serve our clients. We challenge ourselves every day to make a true difference to everyone we interact with. Our drive and enthusiasm make us a great team. Working directly with clients and partners from day one will make you move quickly along your learning curve and make an impact that matters.

Given our strong and continuous growth, we are looking for an ambitious, bi-lingual FR/ENG or NL/ENG and self-driven full time Senior VAT Consultant, who, together with us, will build the consulting of tomorrow. This position is for our Zaventembased premises.

  • You are proficient in Microsoft Office, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook
  • You can work independently after you are totally up and running but understand why there is no I in TEAM.
  • You are an organisational talent, have great time-management skills and respect deadlines. The pro in pro-active is your trademark.
  • You solve problems in no time, like lemon remove grease stains. There are actually no problems for you, because you see opportunities in everything
  • You are accurate and stress resistant. We do sometimes the Woooosaaaaah thing, it helps
  • And lastly, but not less important, you are not afraid to dive into the HR sea, where processes and tools swim by, but where you will also discover a lot of new things
