Our training

Our team is our strength. That’s why we do whatever we can to give each and every one of them the support they need to grow – as professionals and as people.

Developing business skills

If you’re joining us as a tax professional, you’re in good company. We’re a firm of chartered tax advisers – the gold standard in tax – and also an ICAEW-accredited training employer. Unlike other firms, where you may have to do a bit of everything, here you’ll build up specialised expertise. Best of all, you’ll do it while working with a huge variety of exciting and innovative businesses from across the UK.

We want you to take the next step in your career with ForrestBrown too. That’s why we have lots of training opportunities available, whatever your skill set. Our in-house training programme, the Learning Lab, has been designed to help people from all career backgrounds develop the skills they need to succeed. New joiners complete all of the course modules in their first six months, but there’s also regular ongoing training for the whole team to keep us all at the top of our game.

The Learning Lab

The Learning Lab includes theory, classroom-based learning and a practical assessment. But we know everyone learns differently, so we also have an online hub of courses, quizzes and webinars, as well as Lunch & Learns and self-led study.

Here is what it covers:


This covers day-to-day subjects for tax advisers, like understanding the R&D tax legislation, the BIS guidelines, the EC recommendation on SME status and how we work with other tax legislations.

Risk management

You’ll learn about risk management procedures, including engaging with clients, record keeping and quality assurance processes.

Client service

Everything you need to know about the skills and behaviours that support our values and vision, as well as how to generate leads and build a network.
