Job description

A new opportunity has arisen within an international top tier accountancy firm for engineering professionals specialising in R&D…

So why this business?

Firstly, the team going through a transition of unparalleled growth in the R&D sector. The team is doing so well, in fact, that it’s consistently winning work from the Big 4. Not an easy feat, as I’m sure you can imagine. Such growth would benefit you enormously if you were to join at this stage. Firstly, you will always be busy working with a diverse and exciting client base ranging from sparky start-ups to large corporate engagements. Experience that will develop you as a professional. Furthermore, such growth equates to A LOT of promotion. Here there are no glass ceilings for engineers, which is unusual to find in accountancy firms. This speaks volumes about the kind of firm this is. In fact, one of the partners heading up the team came from an engineering background.

The team wins new work because they are experts in the field of R&D (across their wide range of sectors such as … and you will become one too if you were to take a position at this firm. In addition, each team member has undergone rigorous training in R&D legislation and extensive preparation in managing engagements and liaising with clients. Therefore, by the end of the training, you too will be an R&D expert and have perfected numerous ‘soft skills that will allow you to flourish in a corporate environment.

From day today, you will be visiting client’s premises to gather information on their activities. Due to this, your job here will never be a dull one. It is part of your job to be learning about new technology constantly. To maintain your edge, you shall also continuously develop your own knowledge on the technical and financial side of things. Then you will collate the information you have gathered and assess their eligibility under the R&D scheme. From this, you will write in-depth technical reports to submit to HMRC. This could involve liaising with both internal and external tax teams are to ensure the tax returns and computations correctly reflect the outcome of your technical assessments.  Clients and HMRC may well have queries along the way, and so as their main point of contact, it’s all up to you!

Once you get a grip of the role and start to shine, you will be promoted to a whole new level. You will be actively supervising and training the less experienced R&D members of the team. In addition, you will be revising the technical and financial assessments of other members of the team. Instead of just attending client meetings, you will be leading them. You will also get a chance to challenge yourself with business development – developing and promoting the R&D tax offering.

These are qualities that I will never be able to communicate via this advertisement. However, if you were to meet with the partners, you would instantly realise these qualities are very much a reality at this firm.
