As the global leader in the food service industry, we have a legacy of innovation and hard work that continues to drive us. Today, we are growing with velocity and are focused on modernizing our experiences, not to make a different McDonald's, but to build a better McDonald's. We are moving fast and are adding to our best-in-class team. Joining McDonald's means thinking big every day and preparing for a career that can have impact around the world. We are customer obsessed, committed to being leaders, and believe we are better when we work together. Over the last couple years, we've launched home delivery, modernized our restaurant experience through digital enhancements and have so much more to come. We are dedicated to using our scale for good: good for people, our industry and the planet. From ambitious recycling initiatives and balanced sourcing efforts to our partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities, we are constantly improving. We see every single day as a chance to have a genuine impact on our customers, our people and our partners. Our new, state-of-the-art headquarters is located in the booming West Loop area in the heart of downtown Chicago. It's set up to be a global hub that cultivates innovation. Take a class at Hamburger University, sample future menu items in our Test Kitchen, and utilize the latest technology to communicate with your team around the globe! Our office helps us connect with each other like never before. Participate in monthly organized events, enjoy massive outdoor spaces, an 8000 square foot gym, and an onsite McDonald's serving international favorites. Needless to say, you'll be lovin' it here! The purpose of the role is to support the successful deployment of Global Tax team change initiatives (i.e., the Global Tax roadmap) at MHQ as well as across the various global locations, while supporting the advancement of the team culture and improved ways of working as a collective team (which includes the ability to more broadly demonstrate the skills and capacity across a diverse and dispersed team). Key requirements include working with the various teams to define their as-is states/processes, and be a champion of driving a consistent, improved future state across the teams, managing some of the key support relationships, data collection/management and workflow through technology and potentially other support areas. The person will have a broad brief to support implementing changes to the operating and systems frameworks in Global Tax that will best facilitate the advancement and streamlining of the Global Tax function, including the rollout and adoption of the broad capabilities of various technology tools, such as Microsoft SharePoint not just from a functionality perspective, but from a team collaborative, cultural perspective as well. This person will be responsible for: * Liaison and control point across multiple user groups on change initiatives * Workshop facilitation, requirements gathering and process mapping * Finding opportunity areas for improvement * Technical skills to develop and trouble shoot some of the team tools, such as Microsoft solutions (Sharepoint, Team, and OneDrive), Alteryx, Tableau, Oracle, OneSource and other tax-related software solutions * Central control point for any testing on new initiatives, including ability to quickly learn key features and operations of new software solutions to be deployed * Liaising with business users (along with Global Technology team as needed) and transitioning any solutions into production in a controlled, supported manner * Manage scope and change control processes within the program of work * Change management by supplying to communications, training plans, documentation, etc. There is a requirement for a well-organised individual possessing extremely good social skills, with a sense of curiosity and inquisitiveness to understand the status quo, and to facilitate improvement solutions not just through the existing team, but potentially across broader teams and even by reference to industry best-standards available. The ability to work in a multi-jurisdiction team environment is key, and the person will need to be a strong and effective communicator who can bring people along the change journey with them and use the existing team to its fullest. The opportunity has some truly transformative benefits, and the team collaboration along with emerging technology solutions available in the market present some substantial opportunities to progress evolution in how the Global Tax team supports its business partners in a material way. Technical tax knowledge is not a requirement of the role – though the individual will need to understand the broad implications (i.e., risks and benefits, requirements, etc.) of the tax results impacted by any changes to our processes or technology. Project Management and Business Analyst skills are, however, of paramount importance. The Team Collaborative & Dynamic; Individual will have to work well with a broad group of globally dispersed team members who are authorities in the areas of tax they are responsible for (and very busy with the day-to-day work along with a continually evolving tax and business landscape).
