An exciting opportunity to work in a growing, specialist Innovation Reliefs tax team within the Central Region in this National/Top 10 firm. The role involves working directly with the IT specialists in many different businesses who are at the forefront of their technology, whilst also experiencing a role in a global professional services firm.
We are looking for a motivated individual with a background in IT and/or Software Engineering to work within our existing Innovation Reliefs team to help our clients claim R&D incentives. The existing team is very experienced in these tax reliefs, but would benefit from more specialist input for claims in software / IT. The ideal candidate will have a good understanding and passion for technologies; strong communication skills to help in talking to clients, and clear and concise writing skills to help with describing these projects in writing.
Your main responsibility will be to work closely with our clients’ technical teams across a range of industry sectors, using your background and experience in IT /software to analyse technical aspects of their projects and assist in assessing projects’ eligibility for R&D tax relief.
You will ideally have a Computer Science (or similar) degree or post-graduate qualification, with prior practical experience in a software, technology or R&D role. An understanding of the UK’s R&D tax incentives is beneficial but not essential. Excellent communications skills at all levels and a concise writing style will be essential. The role involves occasional travel within the Midlands Region, and you will collaborate with colleagues locally and nationally.
Salary is negotiable, dependent on experience.
