The role

Excited by innovation and technology? Why not consider a career in R&D tax credits? You could be playing a vital part in supporting businesses in the UK to access the best R&D tax advice, and in turn helping to shape the future of innovation in the UK.

Our ForrestBrown - Careers at ForrestBrown

Find out what it's like working at ForrestBrown with insights from the team. Get a glimpse into our Bristol offices.

We’re ForrestBrown, a firm of chartered tax advisers specialising in research and development (R&D) tax. Our team has substantial experience and technical expertise in this field which, combined with our passion for our clients and entrepreneurial spirit, helps us deliver outstanding results for a wide portfolio of innovative clients. We have offices in Bristol, Scotland and London and are proud to be one of the largest specialist R&D tax teams in the UK.

As part of our research team, you’ll work closely with tax advisor colleagues and sector specialists in our R&D tax credit practice to write clear, concise, accurate and technically robust reports of clients’ qualifying R&D projects.

You’ll be a key point of contact to show our clients that we understand their business and the intricacies of their R&D work in a particular field of science or technology.

We’ll look to you to do the technical research to gather information about our clients, their sectors and industry. That will involve regular contact with our clients as part of their project team, discussing their technically complex work in detail to uncover the information needed to maximise their claim on their behalf. You’ll then produce excellent, high quality written reports to support the claim, clearly and articulately communicating the depth and detail of our clients’ innovation and demonstrating how it meets HMRC’s criteria.  

Our work is broad and varied and you will be excited by the opportunity to meet and discuss innovation with clients across a variety of sectors from digital software, through energy, construction, retail, and manufacturing to name a few.

So, if you have natural curiosity, love getting to grips with the detail of innovation and have a flair for the written word then this could be the role for you. You don’t need a tax or industry-specific background, though. We welcome all kinds of qualities and experiences. Perhaps you are a graduate who is used to processing lots of information and isolating key technical details – or you might be a software, science, or engineering specialist looking for an alternative career. It’s fair to say you are likely to have a degree ideally, in a STEM subject, and be proactive and enthusiastic, with excellent critical thinking and information analysis skills.

If that’s you, we’d really like to hear from you.
