What do you do?
I’m a senior manager within the R&D incentives team. This means I talk to businesses, find out what they do, and help them identify where they can claim for additional tax reliefs. The relief is available for any business that is forward thinking and innovative, and the benefits can be considerable!
Why do you do it?
I do it because I’m interested in what local businesses do, how they move forwards and the people that work there. I’m passionate about understanding how things work, which stems from my love of science. I have a science degree and I’m a chartered accountant. There are very few career paths that marry the two, and I’m lucky to have found it in R&D!
What kind of projects have you been involved in?
I’ve worked with many businesses from food manufacturers, engineers, furniture makers, medical science, construction and breweries to name a few.
We can make a real difference to them in terms of generating cash repayments to drive more innovation and product development. The additional cash can help them invest in more people, equipment and even premises. And that’s exciting!
What’s on top of your bucket list?
Wow… Now my children are getting older, and more self-sufficient, I’m getting a little more time. I have dreams of picking up musical instruments again, painting, and travelling with my husband. In terms of travelling; Vietnam, Thailand, and Canada are all creeping up the list!
