🏛🚀 About Claimer

We believe that discovering and applying for government incentives should be quick and easy.

Claimer is a tech company with a vision of being the interface between SMEs and government incentives, matchmaking businesses with incentives, and providing a hassle-free way to claim them. Our first product makes claiming UK R&D tax credits a breeze.

With a minimum viable product in hand, we've spent the last 18 months flying under the radar and learning all we can about the R&D tax relief space. In this time we've filed more than 380 claims, recovering millions of pounds of relief for startups, and used the learnings to build the technology that will power our vision - which goes live in July.

At the core of everything we do is people (see our values below), and so we go to great lengths to provide exceptional customer service and a hassle-free product experience.

Claimer is growing fast, backed by some of the best investors in Europe, but we need your help.

We already have some amazingly talented people in the team, but we still have some more positions to fill for the next chapter of the company's growth journey.

✍️ The Role

The Chief of Staff will be a 'force multiplier' to the CEO, helping the planning and execution of a wide variety of projects and processes, involving strategy, operations, and hiring, as well as maintaining and building Claimer's company culture. The role's key responsibility is to support the CEO in making sure Claimer has a scalable organisation that is a great place to work.

It's a highly strategic role, but also requires someone that's not afraid of getting their hands dirty with executional tasks.

We're looking for an incredibly driven and organised person that has a great mix between IQ and EQ, who can partner with Adam handling the operations of the company. They will be his strategic sounding board, trusted advisor, and 'getting things done' team member, potentially using this as a stepping stone for a more senior management role within the company at a later stage.
