Job Description

We’re the premier provider of R&D tax credits in the UK and the best independent consultancy firm (Taxation Awards 2018), as well as featuring in the Sunday Times top small companies to work for two years running. We’ve doubled in size each year and we’re still growing. As part of our growth we have launched an exciting new advisory practice which supports businesses of all sizes through HMRC enquiries and delivers complex consultancy projects.

As this is a new service, you will be part of a small, growing team and so teamwork and collaboration will be essential. This is an exciting and high-profile role for someone who would like to play an important part in helping to develop the future of our advisory practice. If you’re looking for a change, the opportunity to make a real difference and feel the impact of your work, this role could be for you.

We are looking for a talented senior tax manager who will work closely with experts across ForrestBrown to deliver excellent commercial technical advice to our clients. You’ll need to take the time to understand our clients’ challenges and help identify the right solution for their business, equipping them with the tools to increase the value and efficiencies within the claim process, support planning and forecasting of accurate R&D activities as well as assisting them in assessing and managing risk.  More broadly you will also support HMRC enquiries into claims prepared by others, helping to drive those enquiries through to resolution.

To be successful in this role you will be either ACA or CTA qualified with a proven track record of working in corporate tax advisory and ideally have experience of working with HMRC. You will be comfortable developing relationships with senior stakeholders, and be genuinely interested and energised by the chance to uncover new opportunities and help our business grow. You’ll need to be entrepreneurial and proactive, a team player and able to thrive in a fast-paced environment

If you are a self-starter that is looking to use their tax experience in a different environment, where your passion, ambition and excellence can be rewarded, then you could be exactly what we are looking for.
