R&D Software Assistant Manager

R&D Tax Software Assistant Manager - London - up to £60,000

This is an exciting opportunity for a motivated and articulate IT/software professional to join a dynamic and growing team of highly successful tax and industry professionals.

The successful candidate will have broad ranging access and exposure to senior and leading IT specialists across a wide range of sectors, industries and businesses, whilst being part of a global professional services firm supporting a diverse variety of clients. The clients are predominantly from the mid-market, but we have a growing large-corporate client base and also look to support entrepreneurial companies and start ups.

Key responsibilities:

  • Working collaboratively and flexibly as a member of a wider project team which services our client; this requires strong communication and teamwork skills.
  • Build and develop trusting relationships with clients to support project success.
  • Liaising directly with clients' IT teams (usually CTO or lead developers) to explain the R&D criteria and guidelines and support them to develop understanding of qualifying R&D activities and boundaries for the start and end of R&D within their projects. This includes questioning them in-depth on their development and drilling down into the underlying technology.
  • Writing compelling, succinct and persuasive technical documentation in a manner that clearly sets out the nature of the project and its applicability to the R&D Guidelines. This documentation is sent to HMRC.
