I graduated from the University of Manchester with BSc International Management in 2022 and did an internship there right after. I am now looking forward to develop my career in Claritas as a Tax Trainee and work towards my qualifications.
As a new joiner I look forward to get exposure to a variety of projects in order to become more familiar with the industry and build up experience. I am also excited to see how everything I learn from the ACA and CTA courses applies in practice.
I enjoy crocheting small projects like coasters, accessories or decorations and gifting them to friends or hoarding them at home. I’m also into gaming and any type of board games and love playing with friends. In the meantime, I am very dedicated to taking care of my 12 houseplants.
I joined the Claritas graduate scheme in September 2023. I’m a graduate of the University of Birmingham with an Accounting and Finance degree in which I achieved a 2:1. I left university with the ambitions of becoming a Chartered Accountant and was fortunate enough to be provided with the opportunity to achieve those ambitions of becoming ACA qualified whilst working at Claritas.
I make use of every opportunity to learn, gain new knowledge, and improve my skills through using my colleagues’ experiences and my own. I’m excited to be able assist clients through solving problems for them and providing them with solutions which further helps me gain more experience and develop.
I really enjoy meeting up and socialising with friends, whether it is to get food or try out new activities. I also try to keep fit and active and so enjoy going to the gym and playing football when I get the chance as well as, regularly watching my team Manchester United play. I have a passion for music and try to go to concerts for my favourite artists when the opportunity arises.
I joined the Claritas graduate programme in May 2023. I graduated from De Montfort University in 2022 with a business law degree. I looked for a career change and fortunately got the opportunity to work for Claritas and I am working towards the ACA and CTA qualification.
I am very excited about gaining experience and exposure in tax and learning as much as I possibly can alongside my experienced colleagues. I am also looking forward to developing my skills and knowledge through helping clients by providing solutions to any issues they may have.
Cricket is my big passion and I play regularly for my local team. I am an avid follower of Tottenham Hotspur, and I try to watch them live whenever I can. In my spare time I like playing video games and socialising with my friends.
I joined Claritas in September 2022 as a graduate, with aspirations of completing the ACA and becoming a qualified accountant. My previous professional experience includes internships in private equity and debt finance, in which I have gained valuable skills which will benefit me in this role at Claritas. I graduated from the University of Birmingham with a master’s degree in mathematics, Class II (Division I).
I am excited to gain exposure to the world of taxation, and the problems and solutions that accompany it. For instance, learning and working towards finding solutions for our clients will develop my technical skills and complement my ACA studies. I look forward to working with my colleagues on projects such as merges and acquisitions and assisting R&D tax relief claims.
I enjoy catching up with my friends, often over a coffee or having a bite to eat somewhere. In addition to this, I enjoy watching the main sporting events, such as football. I also like to keep fit and healthy by going to the gym (I find that this improves my productivity) and I used to attend kickboxing classes at university, which I ought to get back into! Aside from social and physical activities , I enjoy reading after a busy day; I enjoy non-fiction books that are informative but read like thrillers.
I joined Claritas as a Graduate in July 2022 and I’m currently working towards my ACA and CTA. My previous experience involves almost two years as a Audit and Accounts Trainee, until I decided to indulge into the realm of Taxation. Prior to that, I graduated from Nottingham Trent University, with a 2:1 in Accounting and Finance.
I am thrilled to gain exposure to the world of taxation with the support and guidance of my colleagues and gain an understanding of our client’s businesses whilst finding solutions to the challenges they face. Predominantly, I will engage in a variety of tax advisory projects including mergers and acquisitions and assisting with Research & Development tax relief claims.
Aside from preparing for examinations, spending time with my friends and family means everything to me. I like to keep fit and go to the gym as much as possible, I’m also food lover, so I enjoy going to different restaurants (finding a balance between both tends to be difficult!) In addition, I enjoy travelling particularly to my favourite holiday destination which is Dubai!
I graduated from the University of Nottingham all the way back in 2008 and have spent the past 11 years living and working in Shanghai, China, where I started out teaching before transitioning into training and management roles. I recently returned to the UK looking for a career change and was fortunate enough to be selected for Claritas’ graduate programme starting in September 2021, based in the Birmingham office.
I am eager to learn and get hands-on experience in a broad range of areas and feel extremely lucky to be surrounded and supported by colleagues with such a wealth of experience. In my previous career I always took great satisfaction from listening to students and colleagues and helping them to find solutions to their problems and I look forward to continuing that in a new context.
I enjoy reading, video games when I find the time, and watching pretty much any sport. I was a keen rugby player before I moved away and in recent years have taken up golf and boxing, although it is fair to say that my enthusiasm far exceeds my ability in both. Having spent so long overseas I am looking forward to spending some quality time with family and friends and having the opportunity to travel around the UK.
I graduated from Aston University with a 2.1 in BSc Chemistry with an International Placement. I joined Claritas as a Graduate as part of the ACA/CTA Tax Assistant programme. Prior to starting here, I worked as a Trainee Management Accountant until I decided to pursue a career in Tax.
Being at the start of my career I aim to get myself involved with any project I can. I consider this hands-on approach to be the best way to learn. With Claritas offering such a wide array of services to clients, it is a great organisation to gain exposure in all aspects of the Tax industry.
I love sports and if I’m not watching it, I am participating in it in some form. I play Football twice a week and go running (whenever I can be motivated to wake up early enough!). I am a keen cook and am always eager to add new dishes to my repertoire for my friends and family to sample. I consider myself to be a bit of a film buff and often unwind on the sofa watching one.
I’m on the graduate programme at Claritas and I started with the firm in October 2020. I graduated from the University of Manchester with a First-Class Degree in Chemistry. Since my graduation I have worked in the Science and Logistics industries and I am always excited to apply my unique perspective at Claritas.
I am keen to be exposed to a variety of different areas, and to work with as many colleagues as possible to allow myself to benefit from the variety of talent and experience that exists within the firm. I have an inquisitive mind and like to ask questions, but once information is available to me, I am eager to problem-solve.
I enjoy following the fitness industry and like to spend free time in the gym. I’ve also picked up the guitar in the last couple of years and I enjoy spending time learning new techniques of playing. I also have a love for all things tech and like seeing cutting edge technologies making it into the consumer space.

I spend a lot of my time reading and still have a big passion for playing music, as well as a love of making cider.

I’m a newly qualified Chartered Accountant working towards completing my CTA qualification. I joined the Claritas graduate scheme in February 2019 and qualified in 2022. Prior to Claritas I spent two years working as a compliance caseworker at HMRC.
I spend the majority of my time working in private client, completing tax returns and advisory reports for clients. I also get involved with R&D claims and Corporate compliance as well as other tax areas as and when required to meet the needs of the business.
I like to be active in my spare time, trying out new exercise classes and running round after my young Bichon Frise! I also enjoy baking for my family and reading fantasy and murder mystery novels.
I joined the graduate scheme at Claritas in September 2017 and I have since qualified as a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Advisor. Prior to that, I graduated from Queen Mary, University of London with a degree in Economics, before working at a trade finance house for almost two years.
I get involved with a variety of projects at Claritas ranging from M&A transactions, company restructurings through to valuation of shares. No two days are the same for me.
I like to eat! Whether it is trying out a new restaurant that has popped up in and around Birmingham or trying new recipes in my new trusty air fryer, I enjoy all things related to food. I also really enjoy binge watching a new drama or TV series.
I’m a Chartered Accountant and I’ve been with Claritas since September 2016. Previously, I spent three years working in Operations Management with fast-moving consumer goods companies, including Samworth Brothers and Ocado.
I specialise in Employee Share Schemes and Valuations for UK tax purposes, helping our clients to successfully attract, develop, retain and incentivise their key employees. I enjoy getting to understand our clients’ businesses, which cover a multitude of sectors from software providers and airport operators to food producers and media companies. Every business is unique, and I like learning about the challenges our clients face and hopefully being able to be part of the solution.
I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen with my wife, usually for dinner parties with family or friends. We’re big foodies and big believers of supporting our local independent bars and restaurants. We’re also passionate about travelling to experience different cuisines around the world, our favourites being Italian and Thai. I also love muddy walks in the countryside with our dog, Otto, a chocolate brown Moyen Poodle named after our favourite pizza restaurant in the Jewellery Quarter.
I was Claritas’ first graduate in 2015 having graduated from Swansea University with a First in Business Management. With the support of the team, I’ve completed both my ACA and CTA qualifications since joining.
I specialise in R&D tax claims and I’ve helped numerous businesses secure corporation tax reductions or cash payments as a result. I love speaking with clients and understanding their businesses as well as feeling you’re really making a real difference. It’s always exciting talking to clients, understanding the new and innovative things they’re working on. As well as R&D, I have experience in tax compliance as well as structuring reorganisations and valuations.
I love exercising (especially swimming) as well as cooking and baking. I also enjoy relaxing with friends and family, treating them to my latest creations in the kitchen. I would love to be able to travel more, there’s so many places I want to see and different cultures I want to experience.
With a diverse client base, these are just some of the types of projects that you can expect to work on during your training as a Graduate.
As part of the recruitment process I got to meet the majority of the team, including the directors, and everyone was so down to earth and friendly. To this day I can’t get over how nice everyone here is and it feels great to be an integral part of the team.
Having interviewed for a few firms I found Claritas provided a much more personalised interview process; they even knew my name!
On the interview and assessment day I noticed that members of the Claritas team were smiling and upbeat, reflecting the positive work place atmosphere that exists within Claritas.
After working in one area of tax during my previous job, I sought the opportunity to be able to experience a variety of different tax areas to enable me to develop a wider understanding of the tax regime and how it impacts clients. I am pleased to say that Claritas has provided me with this opportunity since the first week!
What appealed to you about Claritas?
It was a smaller firm where a big emphasis was placed on training and knowledge as well as staff wellbeing and having a work life balance.
The friendly atmosphere and feeling like I would be able to make a difference to the firm and its clients really appealed.
