“Having joined the firm back in December 2016, I immediately knew it was the right place for me to progress my career in tax.  We have a great team, great values and great clients.


We are a firm which is proud to support our team with both training and progression opportunities.


I joined as Tax Supervisor, quickly being promoted to Manager, Senior Manager and now Associate of the firm.


We offer hybrid working arrangements (for those who want to) and I now split my week between home and office.  This has been hugely beneficial to me, avoiding the 40-minute commute, whilst also allowing me to spend much more precious time with my three young children.  Our flexi policy also allows me to take the pressure off my partner with some of the school runs too.”


Paul Buckley, CTA ATT

Associate & Senior Tax Manager


“I started with Waltons at the beginning of October 2020, in the midst of Covid with the ‘work at home if you can’ arrangements applying.  I was only in the office for approximately a week before the rules changed again, and I had to work from home.  I must admit, at the time, this was a strange way of starting a new job!   
However, from the outset, the team and the directors have all supported me, ensuring I had everything I needed to succeed in my new role.  I must admit, I prefer to work from the office, but some of my team have chosen to continue to work a hybrid role, and Waltons continues to support hybrid working where possible.  


Our busy periods can sometimes be challenging, but I have always thrived on being busy, and I’m part of a hardworking and fun team, who all support each other and I feel like I’ve fit in really well. 


Waltons is a very rewarding and great place to work, always encouraging the team to achieve their full potential and I am looking forward to furthering my career here.”
