- | By Stephen

CBTax are an award-winning, leading tax consultancy practice supporting clients with research and development (“R&D”) claims and other tax saving project work. The firm has been recognized as the fastest growing tax consultancy firm in the UK in 2021 with an ambition to become the largest R&D practice in the UK in the next 12 months. CBTax won Business of the Year 2021 at the Northamptonshire Business Excellence Awards. The Head Office is located in Northamptonshire, with close access to the M1 and M6.

CBTax is searching for Tax Associates, who will thrive in a busy, but rewarding environment to join our team and support the firm’s continued growth across the UK. The role will offer huge potential to a driven and dynamic person to develop within professional services working with many different sectors that are driving innovation across the UK.

To become a Tax Associate, candidates do not have to come from an Accounting and Finance background. Tax Associates will be fully supported during their studies towards gaining their ATT and CTA qualifications, whilst gaining great exposure with experienced team members, clients and their projects. At CBTax we fully support our Associates when studying for ATT and CTA, ensuring they are given ample support to qualify in the field of tax.

See below some of the success stories from our current Associates.

Harry joined CBTax in April 2021 with a background in Chemistry, he says “Having come from a non-tax related background, the close-knit team have been extremely supportive helping out every step of the way and with a modern office, a welcoming team, and lots of opportunity for professional development, CBTax is a fantastic company to work for.”

Lucy is one of CBTax’s Senior Associates who has been with the firm since April 2020, she says “During my time at CBTax I think I have learnt something new every day! I am now currently studying towards my ATT qualification, aiming to eventually become a Chartered Tax Advisor. I love working for CBTax because every day is different, each project that we work on is unique and it’s so interesting to listen to our clients talk about all their exciting innovation work. CBTax has created such a positive work environment”.

Danny joined CBTax soon after leaving Sixth Form in May 2021 and says “One of the things that stands out to me about working at CBTax is the collaboration and support between everyone in the team, regardless of role or department. It truly is a great environment for a hungry and developing individual to thrive. Being able to complete personal qualifications with the firm’s backing is a huge bonus.”
