Your opportunity

The UK government provides tax incentives to businesses performing R&D; Deloitte's R&D tax services group is a market leader in helping clients secure these incentives and is the most experienced team in the UK.

Continued market success has created new opportunities and we are looking for an open minded Information Technology (IT)/Computer Science (CS) professionals with both technical and software development knowledge, coupled with excellent communication skills. Knowledge of the full development lifecycle is sought and an appreciation of the types of technical challenges encountered across this lifecycle. 

You will be working with both senior technical and finance staff within our client companies and you will need strong communication skills to quickly understand the nature of their work and prepare high quality documentation to explain how this meets the definition of R&D.

Your day-to-day responsibilities will allow you to gain an understanding of a wide variety of cutting edge technologies across different industries. Although this is not a "hands-on" role, you'll have the opportunity to take a different career route and to maintain exposure to/increase your knowledge of emerging areas of technology and innovation.

We are proud to offer flexible working arrangements which allow our people to choose the most suitable working arrangement that works for them.

If you would like to hear more about our flexible working arrangements, please let us know.

Your role

As an Analyst/Consultant within our team you will be in a client facing role from day one, engaging with technical and financial teams, conducting technical interviews, undertaking analyses as you prepare R&D tax claims to be submitted to HMRC.  This will require you to draw on your existing IT experience and knowledge, applying it to potentially new areas of technology and industries.  You will work as part of a project team alongside tax practitioners to help companies to prepare their claims.  You will work on multiple projects in parallel and will therefore have to manage a number of competing demands on your time.

This is your opportunity to be a contributor to our clients' innovation lifecycle as they seek to maximise their opportunities using technology.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Conducting efficient technical interviews with clients' technical experts to understand their R&D activity and then summarising for a non-technical audience.
  • Analysing technical documentation and data from clients to support the development of R&D claim methodologies.
  • Writing clear, compelling reports for appropriate authorities (typically HMRC), based on technical interviews to convey how a client's technical activity is R&D.
  • Actively participating in project management to ensure R&D claims are delivered to time and within budget.
  • Working effectively in diverse teams within an inclusive team culture where people are recognised for their contribution

Personal independence

Regulation and controls are standard practice in our industry and Deloitte is no exception. These controls provide important legal protection for both you and the firm. We are subject to a number of audit regulations, one of which requires that certain colleagues abide by specific personal independence constraints. This can mean that you and your "Immediate Family Members" are not permitted to hold certain financial interests (shares, funds, bonds etc.) with audit clients of the firm.  The recruitment team will provide further detail as you progress through the recruitment process.
