Now’s your chance to explore a rewarding career with purpose, working with clients in exciting industries – like aviation, construction, technology, and fashion. We are looking for bright sparks to join our tax associate programme in April 2020 and September 2020.

Who are we?

We’re ForrestBrown. We’re a firm of chartered tax advisers. We specialise in research and development tax credits. But we don’t lead with number-crunching – we lead with innovation, with energy and with total trust in each other.

About the programme

As a tax associate, you will join a fast-paced team focused on delivering outstanding service to our clients. Your role is to understand in-depth information about our client’s innovative projects in science, engineering, manufacturing or technology. Whether you’re preparing important numerical documents to help build robust R&D tax credit claims or delivering outstanding R&D tax credit advice, every day will be different.

As a tax associate at ForrestBrown you’ll have real responsibility from the start. But you won’t do it alone. We’re an encouraging bunch and want you to do well. We have our own dedicated ‘Learning Lab’ which allows R&D tax trainees to develop specialist knowledge, and we will support you to complete your professional qualifications – including ATT, ACA and CTA as appropriate. Our trainees have days off to attend college and we’ll even help you with mock exam papers. What’s more, with an intake of a small group of associates, you’ll join together and support one another throughout your time here.


For our associate programme, we’re looking for ambitious individuals with a STEM degree and ideally some professional experience gained in a working environment. That’s not to say you should come from a tax background though. We welcome all kinds of qualities and experiences – you might be a mathematics graduate looking for your first role, an engineer looking for a new challenge, a scientist, chemist, or software developer looking for an alternative career. All we look for is a strong work ethic and desire to work in a fast-paced environment, a commitment to undertaking further professional qualifications, a keen eye for detail and the ability to work well within a team.
