This is primarily a homeworking role that will also involve one day a month at the Head Office in the North West and regular travelling sometimes with overnight stays required. Candidates can therefore be based nationwide.

You must therefore develop a strong understanding of government guidelines / legislation and HMRC guidance in regard to research and development activity.

• Quantitative or qualitative research experience
• Experience within a field of science or technology
• Experience working in sectors where R&D is prevalent (e.g. software, manufacturing, technology)
