Job Description
A key priority to achieving success in our Firm is Global Delivery Model (GDM). Within the Tax Line of Service (LoS), the GDM model focuses on developing Service Delivery Centers (SDCs) to perform routine tax activities that are high volume, low risk and non-client facing. The SDCs will focus on leveraging technology and standardized processes with a critical focus on efficiency. The Tax SDCs are home to many of our critical business processes being delivered to PwC's Tax clients and also manage Global Delivery Center services. Tax currently has many high priority positions that are critical to the development, implementation and future of the Service Delivery Centers. Joining this growing part of our business will provide an opportunity to be a part of the transformation of the way the Tax LoS delivers client service.

The Service Delivery Center (SDC) aims to provide engagement teams with an efficient, quality embedded, and cost effective way to support the delivery of certain aspects of the compliance process.

While the SDC is considered an extension of the engagement team, the engagement team retains control over client interaction, final client work products and reviews, and tax technical decisions.
