Got a nose for numbers and an eye for detail? Do you have some experience in finance, accounting, or even managing R&D claims? Do you want to be a crucial part of scaling a tech business with a talented team? Then we're looking for you!

R&D tax credits are a fantastic way to claim back costs and help startups grow, but the process is stuck in the dark ages. Claimer is a fast-growing start-up that’s using tech to shake up the R&D tax credit space, with a product that users love.

We’re looking for someone to take ownership over the day-to-day management of the R&D claims process. The role is varied, but you’ll spend a lot of time speaking with startup founders, getting to grips with the details of the latest breakthroughs, analysing R&D expenditure, and identifying opportunities for new product features.

What we’re looking for:

  • Either two years experience in a mixed tax / corporation tax / R&D tax role or an experienced accountant who can quickly learn about R&D relief and associated corporation tax rules.
  • A passion for innovation
  • Exceptional organisational skills
  • Strong verbal communication skills in English
  • You are a fast learner and looking to join a high growth startup, able to excel in a fast paced environment with limited supervision.

The Role:

  • Working closely with Claimer’s wide variety of SME clients including some of the most innovative startups in the UK
  • Guiding clients through the Claimer platform including assistance in maximising qualifying expenditure
  • Preparing the financial aspect of claims and preparing tax computations
  • Managing payments of R&D tax credits to Clients
  • Representing Claimer at workshops, talks, and events
  • Working with the team in developing our product
  • Optional: helping with Claimer’s own finances e.g. VAT Returns, Payroll etc.

Life at Claimer

You’ll have:

  • Autonomy and responsibility
  • A powerful brand new work laptop (Macbook Air or Windows based if you prefer)
  • Perks scheme (discounts and rewards with 30,000+ brands)
  • Study support - if you’re studying towards a professional qualification
  • Flexible annual leave policy - minimum of 28 days
  • Contributory pension
  • Team lunches every month, outings every quarter.
  • Initially remote-working only due to Coronavirus, after that ideally you'll be based in our offices in Croydon or Central London once or more per week.
