We’re ForrestBrown, the UK’s leading research and development (R&D) tax consultancy. Our mission is to help innovative businesses make the most of R&D tax relief – but that doesn’t mean we fit the mould of the average tax firm. We’re creative, driven and fiercely passionate about what we do. We thrive on delivering amazing results for our clients, but believe it’s not the be-all-and-end-all about our jobs. That’s why there’s more to ForrestBrown than what’s in your job description, from development opportunities to yoga classes and team socials. Our vibrant headquarters is based in Bristol, and you’ll also find us in London and Scotland too - so come and say hello!
We build brilliant relationships with clients in exciting industries like aviation, technology, fashion and food. Our work helps clients use R&D tax relief strategically, uncovering the funds they need to move forward. That’s cash to put towards hiring new talent or creating something remarkable.
We also do a lot behind the scenes. Our marketing professionals play a pivotal role in demonstrating the value of having ForrestBrown as a strategic partner. Our sector specialists – in-house experts with years of experience in diverse industries – help clients uncover their technical projects and communicate them to HMRC. Our quality assurance experts uphold our robust claim methodology, and our office management team keeps everything running smoothly. Whichever team you’re part of, you’ll play a crucial role in adding value to our clients.
We’ve grown from a handful of tax experts to a talented team of 120 – and we’re just getting started.
The first thing people notice about ForrestBrown is our culture. We’re proud to have created a culture around what we love, not what we think a tax firm should look like.
We’re big believers in collaboration and know people work best when they’re supported, not siloed. So while we have different skill sets, we all work together towards the same purpose: to deliver outstanding results for our clients.
And we have fun along the way too. Whether we’re catching up over a beer at our in-house bar or enjoying our weekly team lunches, it’s an environment we thrive in.
Like everything else here at ForrestBrown, our recruitment process is unique. We want to get to know you – to understand what motivates and drives you, and learn about the amazing skills and experience you could bring to the team.
But it’s not just about us. We want to make sure we’re exactly what you’re looking for too. That means helping you understand all the challenges and opportunities of the role you’re applying for.
So, what can you expect? Every application process is bespoke to the role, but here are some of the steps you might come across in your journey with us:
