Your new company
A very exciting opportunity has just become available to join one of the most successful firms as an R&D Tax Manager. By joining this firm, you will have the opportunity to work with an exciting and exclusive list of clients from various backgrounds from the smallest businesses to most corporate clients. Benefit from a highly competitive salary, car allowance, and general bonuses and accelerate your career forward within a well-established business.

Your new role
As an R&D Tax Manager, your main duties will include developing claim methodologies, and preparing R&D tax relief claims for submission to the HMRC. You will be working very closely with existing and new/potential clients, being their main point of contact for all R&D Tax queries and contacting HMRC and their behalf. The firm will also expect you to write technical descriptions of client's projects, while preparing documentation to support R&D claims, based on UK BIS guidelines, and reviewing work completed by the junior staff within your team.

What you'll need to succeed
To be considered for this role, you will have strong technical knowledge of the UK's R&D tax and experience in the preparation of R&D claims. The successful candidate will also have a clear and concise writing style with experience of responding to HMRC queries. Meanwhile, the ideal candidate will also have computer science/similar degree and possess some previous experience of working within the software or IT industry.

What you'll get in return
The client will offer the successful candidate a competitive salary, along with a car, generous bonuses, and a number of employee benefits to choose from. A hybrid working pattern is now a standard at the firm, meaning you will be able to decide which days you work from home and the office. You will also receive ongoing support and most up-to-date training to ensure you are well-equipped to progress well in your career.
