Job Description

Develop your tax career and discover a rewarding role with purpose, working with clients in exciting industries – like aviation, technology, fashion and publishing.

Join ForrestBrown as a tax consultant and grow your career in tax. Alongside training, both in-house and at college, you’ll enjoy responsibility from the get-go, working with your own portfolio of clients from across a range of exciting industries. You’ll also gain great exposure to the rest of the business – offering your support to help tax managers deliver brilliant results.

As a tax consultant, you’ll be the first point of contact for your clients – there to advise, assist and update them at every stage of their claim journey. You’ll get to know your clients’ businesses and fully understand their R&D projects; making sure they receive our exceptional ForrestBrown service and fully maximised claims. Your bread and butter will be preparing technically excellent R&D reports and tax calculations. But it’s not all delivery focused, you will also be delegating, reviewing work and mentoring associates in your teams – so strong communication skills are a must.

To be a great tax consultant at ForrestBrown, it’s fair to say you’ll need a good knowledge of tax. Though you will be fully tax or accountancy qualified, or have made significant progress towards being so (ideally ATT, ACA or ACCA or equivalent), you won’t need to know all the specifics of R&D already – that’s something we can teach you. Most importantly, you’ll be the kind of person who’s not happy to be just a cog in a machine but who’s eager to take responsibility for their own work and who doesn’t rest until their client has the best possible solution. As well as a solid communicator, you’ll be driven, enthusiastic and thrive under pressure. And if you can add to all that excellent time management skills, you could be just the kind of special person we’re looking for.
