Jayne is an experienced chartered tax adviser – both in the UK and overseas. She began her career at Deloitte in 2006 where she was based in the entrepreneurial business tax practice. There she studied for her ACA qualification.

In 2010 she moved to Dubai to help establish Deloitte’s international tax practice for the Middle East region. She managed a diverse portfolio of clients from, and investing into, the region: large multinationals, owner managed businesses, start-ups and freelancers. Over the course of ten years she oversaw the growth of Deloitte’s Iraq tax services, leading a team delivering across all aspects of corporate taxes, employee taxes and transactional and structuring work. Jayne also had overall responsibility for global mobility services in the Middle East.
