If so, read on!

GrantTree works with many of the UK’s most innovative companies, helping them to maximise their government funding opportunities. This year, we’re investing heavily into our R&D Tax Credits operational and account management teams, to handle our growth, and as part of that we need technically minded people capable of digging into the intricacies of client technologies, and directly impacting the health of both our clients and GrantTree.

  • Researching a client ahead of a call and/or meeting with their CTO, using your in-depth knowledge of the regulations to determine whether the client’s projects are eligible
  • Explaining the R&D Tax Credits scheme to a developer in order to guide them through the process
  • Finalising the technical report for one of the UK’s hottest startup’s claim
  • Changing a company policy to speed up our delivery processes
  • Drafting a list of questions to interview a client to probe further into their technology


  • Hands on experience within Engineering or Science
  • Genuine interest/passion for the Tech industry
  • Confident in speaking with Developers/CTO’s about Tech
  • London based
