You will be trusted to work with businesses from a range of exciting industries, such as financial services, biotechnology, engineering, software, construction and data science. You will be expected to gain a deep understanding of the R&D Tax Credits scheme, and some familiarity with the other schemes we specialise in, so that you can effectively advise your client on their public funding options.

On a typical day into this role, you might be:

  • Working alongside our team of writing experts to help craft a strong and persuasive technical report on our client’s work
  • Attending conference calls with CTOs, engineers and other R&D ‘doers’
  • Reviewing technical data or patents provided by the client
  • Identifying qualifying technology in collaboration with our financial, sales and account management teams
  • Sharing a passion for technology and new areas of development that you encounter with the GrantTree team, so that everyone is up-to-speed with the bleeding edge of tech

  • A passion for science and technology innovation
  • Bachelors in Engineering, Software engineering, Science and related discipline or acquired via personal interest

  • High level of business integrity and ethics
  • Preferably London based but will consider non London based candidates
  • Full-Time

For this role, the salary will be £30,000 - £40,000 depending on experience. In addition to your salary, we are offering a place where you can be yourself, develop your skills and fulfil your potential. We also have a flexible approach to working, so there’s no pressure for you to be in the office (once your probationary period has been completed). You can work from wherever you are most productive, while we offer a fully serviced office in the heart of Shoreditch.

  • 30 days paid holiday + bank holidays
  • Training & development budget
  • Monthly wellness budget
