Are you looking to take the next step on your journey? Want to be part of a global family whose motto is “Your Journey – Your Voice – Your Success ". Then you could be our next investment! At Azets, you are in control of your career and with our support this will make us even stronger, together.


Azets is a leading firm of Accountants and Business Advisors operating across the UK and Nordic Countries. We are a family of over 6,500 employees and work across 100 offices in the UK alone. We have seen dramatic growth in recent years and we are now looking to invest in our skills set even further!

Our values are our motivations:

Our values are at the heart of everything we do. We are looking for people who also believe in these drivers as we work together to achieve success for both our employees and our clients alike. As a business we believe we are stronger together. We share knowledge, ask for help and empower each other to achieve more collectively. The same applies when we look to add talent to our family. We constantly ask ourselves what the right thing is to do for our people, our clients and our business, acting with integrity at all times. We are open minded and value everyone’s contribution, embracing our differences and fostering a culture of trust and inclusion. We look for people who adapt quickly to change, finding smart ways to deliver the best results and remain one step ahead. Does that sound like you?


What you will need

For us, the personal attributes of each of our employees are what makes us authentic in the marketplace. We look for people who can collaborate with peers but can also bring their own voice to the table. We want people who are dynamic in their approach and are respectful of other people’s opinions. We are looking for someone who wants to be more than just a team member, but who also wants to join a family of likeminded individuals.

As a specialist Tax Manager in our Reasearch & Development tax team, you will have a corporate tax background, coupled with significant provable experience in delivering R&D tax relief claims for clients. On a day to day basis you will prepare R&D reports for submission to HMRC and deliver R&D tax client services to a high standard.

The successful candidate will demonstrate a collaborative approach and be able to demonstrate an awareness of technical risk through well supported research. You will be aiming to increase your client base through an organised approach to business development e.g. networking, client recommendation requests, and developing a referrer base.

In order to enhance your own personal development, you will have the opportunity to lead, manage, motivate and coach other members of the team so supervisory experience would be desirable. You will be working with a great team of like-minded colleagues all focused on supporting each other to perform at their best. You will therefore be confident in delivering technical advice and support to colleagues in relation to innovation incentives and tax planning for innovative companies.

In terms of qualifications, we want to ensure we are offering the best service to our customers so possessing a tax qualification such as CTA or a qualification with similar standing, such as ACA, would be a distinct advantage.

A note from the Hiring Manager;

“A fantastic opening to join the management team in a growing, high calibre R&D tax relief team in the Wales and West market place. Providing quality advice and support to a broad range of clients and with the added opportunity and flexibility to develop, mould, and self-direct career progression.”
