At the most recent Olympics held in Rio de Janeiro, Team GB rewrote their own Olympic history after winning a record breaking five gold medals in one day and finishing in second place ahead of China.
Most impressively, this was all achieved with the Olympic athletes training in local parks and utilising their nearest gymnasium... just kidding.
The skill, flair and determination of each individual athlete is undisputable. Yet, each medal approximately cost the UK £5.5 million. The UK government even funded the development of the best training facilities in Brazil, aside from the Olympic stadium, located 45 minutes away from the capital city for them to train further and acclimatise to their new environment.
As aptly shown by team GB, you cannot only reply on your ability and hard work to get gold. You have to ensure you are in an environment that nurtures your skills to allow you to reach your full potential.
This top 10 firm’s R&D department are the equivalent to Team GB’s state of the art training centre. They have been singled out by the firm as a spectacular growth area – now competing for work on the same platforms as that of the Big 4. In fact, they don’t just compete – they win. Due to this unprecedented growth of the team, multiple internal promotions have occurred at a rapid rate.
Joining this team, with this kind of growth, means you will have interesting work and great promotion prospects. The firms position in the top 10 means they are situated in the sweet spot for clients. You will encounter both individual start-ups and huge corporate giants from many different sectors. Therefore, each claim will pose new challenges ensuring no two days are the same.
Additionally, the growth in the client base is ensuring growth at all levels in the team. You won’t have to wait around for someone to leave or keel over to allow you to move ahead. With the amount of work being generated, this is the perfect opportunity to carve a name for yourself and demonstrate your abilities.
The two partners who head up the team here are incredibly friendly and care greatly about the team dynamics. They have worked hard to construct an atmosphere where the exchange of opinions and ideas are genuinely valued and in turn, each professional is adding to the success and development of the team.
For the role, you will require excellent knowledge of R&D legislation and guidelines within the UK, have the ability to identify qualifying activities and expenditure and finally be able to prepare the financial calculations and computations to accompany the claim. You must have experience in handling multiple projects at the same time and qualifying under both the SME scheme and the large corporate scheme. In addition, you will be leading R&D meetings with clients and building effective working relationships – both internally and externally.
