Tax and Finance Recruitment

Matching top tax and finance talent with the best tax and finance roles in India

Our tax and finance recruitment practice delivers specialist search solutions for permanent tax and finance roles to corporate houses across sectors, family offices, funds, law firms and accounting firms in India. Our experienced consultants have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the tax and finance ecosystem in India and provide a range of advisory services including market insights and expert advice to both clients and candidates.

Our tax and finance recruitment team is extremely well-networked with professional services (both accounting and law firms) and in-house tax and finance leaders and the broader tax and finance community to facilitate the right match.

We understand that tax and finance are core aspects of financial management in a business and as the number of financial vehicles and methods of investment have increased, tax planning, compliance and financial management have become more crucial and complex for organisations.

We recognise that tax and finance are specialist functions which are key to an organisation’s growth. Our recommended tax and finance professionals help our clients succeed in the immediate and long term.

In the current climate, tax and finance are an integral part of the overall business strategy and hence, senior tax and finance leaders are expected to support the larger approach to business. Given the same, it has become imperative for firms and companies to hire the right tax and finance professionals to mitigate the various risks that may emanate from the ever evolving business, financial and tax regulations. At Vahura, we are equally happy to advise on research or selection-driven executive search approaches, but specialise in full cycle retained search for senior or strategic tax and finance hires.
