Tax Associate Programme Bristol 2024

Are you ready to build a career with purpose? Now’s your chance to explore a rewarding career with a difference, working with clients in exciting industries – like aviation, technology, construction and engineering. We are looking for bright sparks to join our tax associate programme in Bristol in September 2024.

About us

We’re ForrestBrown, a firm of chartered tax advisers specialising in research and development (R&D) tax, but also helping to amplify the benefits of scientific and technological advancement across a range of innovation focused tax reliefs. Our team has substantial experience and technical expertise, which, combined with our passion for our clients and entrepreneurial spirit, helps us deliver outstanding results for a wide portfolio of innovative clients. We have offices in Bristol, Scotland and London and are proud to be one of the largest specialist R&D tax teams in the UK.

The role

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 working directly with clients to understand in depth information about their innovative projects in science, engineering, manufacturing or technology or working to prepare important documents such as tax calculations and technical narrative reports to support robust R&D claims, you can be assured that your work will have true impact. Here at ForrestBrown you’ll get real responsibility from the start. But you won’t do it alone. We are a diverse, passionate and supportive team and want you to be successful. We have a great track record in supporting completion of professional qualifications and we will give you all the support you need to achieve the ATT/CTA qualification – the gold standard in tax. Our trainees have dedicated study time, including time to attend college, and are supported by experienced inhouse apprentice counsellors. What’s more you’ll join us as part of a small cohort who will work closely together, supporting each other throughout your time here.

About you

We’re looking for ambitious individuals with an interest in tax, with a degree or equivalent qualification, and ideally some experience gained in a professional 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 scientist, engineer, technologist or software developer looking for an alternative career. You could be a recent graduate with a year in industry or other work experience gained around your studies, or a finance professional looking for a new challenge. What’s important is a passion for innovation, a strong work ethic and desire to work in a fast-paced environment as well as a commitment to undertaking further professional qualifications. If you’ve also got a keen eye for detail, are motivated by delivering market leading services and advice to clients and are excited by the idea of working as part of a team then you could be our perfect match.

The closing date for applications is Monday 8th January 2024.
