Hi Everyone, I have an offer from RSM as an International Tax Manager (I have no UK experience) in London for £60k basic salary. Bonus is discretionary at 10%. I am currently a Senior Analyst in one of the Big 4s in Canada but was Manager in my previous position in Africa. I know the big 4 pays more but is this a good offer?

Yes, I will go back and ask for 65k. I do not have a lot of options at the moment and need to move back to the UK cos of my spouse. However, If i find another job that I like I would reject the RSM offer.


That’s a fair offer I would say, though on the lower end. Do you know whether you’ll have a cash/car allowance on top of the £60k?

What’s your YOE? That’s a factor too that’ll help us help you.. £60k is the average base pay for a Tax Manager at Deloitte, and according to Glassdoor Tax Managers at Deloitte (highest paying BIG4) earn an average of £1k in bonus, and have a cash allowance of £5k/£7k. So on the whole, I personally don’t think the offer you got is too bad but depends on YOE.

I have 8 years of experience practicing in Africa. Practiced at PwC for 6 years and in house for a year plus. I mistakenly quoted 55k instead of 65k in my application and they used it as a way to say they are offering me 5k more than I included in my application which seems to be my biggest concern.

No harm in asking for more than £60k - are you ready to walk away from the offer if they decline your request and pull the offer?


All the best!

Hello Deloitte fish: I don’t have access to the consulting bowl and my recruiter had gone silent since I signed my offer. So asking here. If one starts June 13, when would my first pay check be? And is that for one week’s work or two? Can’t tell if I’m starting in the middle of a pay period. Thank you for your help!

Started at Slalom a few months ago after multiple big 4 stops. Best decision I’ve ever made for my career. If you’re current B4 and want to learn more, let me know. They’re building something truly great though and happy to be a part of it. Edit (some are asking but I’ll reply in comments or DM) 1) tremendous WLB and people centric approach - people centric is not lip service. 2) pay is more than competitive and growth has been great - 3) you make a real impact on clients.
