Our client, a globally recognised consultancy is looking to expand their R&D team in Scotland with the appointment of Managers to be based in Glasgow or Edinburgh. The team works with businesses from almost every sector of the economy to help identify their qualifying R&D activities, quantify the level of eligible costs and ultimately agree their claims with HMRC.

The Role

You will work with clients from a range of sectors, and have responsibility for:

  • Leading and project managing delivery of client engagements reporting to key internal/ external stakeholders
  • Working closely with clients (often technical SME’s) to identify qualifying projects and expenditure.

Previous R&D tax experience would be ideal; however it is not essential as training will be provided.
