After almost nine years on the Global Mobility Team at PwC, I was ready for a new challenge. ForrestBrown’s fast-growing, ambitious culture really appealed to me – it was somewhere I could see myself making an impact.
My role is varied, but my mission is always the same: to help innovative businesses grow by harnessing the benefits of the government’s R&D tax credit incentives. Day-to-day, I do whatever it takes to deliver great service, whether that’s meeting with clients, spending time in their organisations or crunching numbers. I really enjoy the difference my work can make to an emerging business’s growth – I actually helped one client adjust their original claim and they were able to benefit from 10x the amount of credit they’d originally identified.
We work hard here, but the culture is still fun and relaxed. It’s a very social workplace, helped by our Bristol location. I’m Bristol born and bred, so a little biased, but I’m always amazed by the number of things there are to do here – from sports teams and events to restaurants, pubs, clubs and outdoor pursuits. It’s buzzing.
