​My Background

I come from a legal background having spent 3 years studying Law at the University of Reading as well as completing an internship at Osborne Clarke.

Upon completion of my degree in 2018 I went into the recruitment where I specialised purely in tax recruitment. Over the past year my sole focus has been R&D Tax recruitment working with clients across the Big 4, Mid-Tier Accountancy Practices and Boutique Firms

Roles I Recruit

I recruit for a wide range of roles within R&D Tax including all individuals from an accounting/tax, engineering/science and business development background.

Roles I cover include, but are not limited to; R&D Tax Software Manager, R&D Financial Consultant, R&D Technical Consultant

What my candidates have said about me

“I can safely say that Chris was an absolute pleasure to collaborate with, throughout the recruitment process, for my new role. Consistently checked in to let me know what the latest information was, from my new company and was a breath of fresh air, with his friendly and upbeat demeanour. I would definitely recommend using Chris' services, within the R&D tax advisory space and I look forward to working with him again; this time from the perspective of hiring prospective candidates for my new team.”

“Chris has been very proactive in his communications which is very important during a recruitment process. Chris was also very professional and polite in his dealings. I recommend his services.”

“He took a very personable approach from the start and actively wanted to learn about myself, including many phone calls and an invitation to a meeting at the his office. He provided great insight into the career area I was interested in and helped identify how my skills and background would fit. I fully intend to recommend Chris to friends and colleagues in the future.”

Outside of work

In my free time I enjoy watching most sports especially football even holding a season ticket for Southampton. I also am a big film enthusiast, regularly going to the cinema.
