Job Description

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

As a tax associate, you will join a fast-paced team focused on delivering outstanding R&D tax credit advice. Every day will be different. Whether you’re preparing important documents to help build robust R&D tax credit claims, or working with clients to understand in-depth information about their innovative projects in science, engineering, manufacturing or technology, you’ll have early access to clients.

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 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 tax or accountancy graduate looking for your first role, a finance professional looking for a new challenge, or a scientist, engineer, 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.

Update Spring 2020: Here at ForrestBrown we are still looking for great people to join our team. At this time we are making use of video interviewing to help us assess candidates that are shortlisted. If you have any questions about the role you are applying for, or our recruitment process please contact us directly at
