Tax specialist welcomes seven new starters in the North West


Access2Funding has welcomed seven new starters to its North West head office after experiencing a period of exponential growth.

One of the fastest-growing R&D tax specialists in the UK has expanded its team across the country by almost 20% over the past year, with more than 35% of the new team being stationed in Birkenhead, Liverpool and Manchester.

On the marketing team, Charlotte Hudson and Jess McDonnell have joined as PR and content executives, bringing with them a wealth experience in journalism and PR, from both in-house and agency side. Lucy Wright joins as social media and digital marketing executive, coming from an agency background where she worked across several clients creating and managing social media content. What’s more, Neil Cooper has joined the team as project and events co-ordinator having worked in the events industry for almost 10 years.

Elsewhere in the business, with a background in credit control and customer service, Kelly Vernon has joined as administrator and Stephanie Kay as accountant with almost 10 years’ experience in the field. Zuzanna Meyer has taken up a position of finance assistant having graduated with a first-class honours degree in accounting and economics in 2020.

Dawn Coker, chief operating officer of Access2Funding, said: “This month we saw our largest cohort of new starters in one week to date and we’re thrilled to be able to welcome seven new starters to our head office in Birkenhead! Our national team has quadrupled since March 2020 and we aren’t slowing down any time soon with further growth plans throughout the coming months.

“Our expansion wouldn’t be possible without the dedicated team that we already have in place that are a testament to the business and consistently go above and beyond for our clients. We are looking forward to an exciting rest of the year.”

In 2020 alone, Access2Funding returned £23m to UK businesses, a figure that continues to rise.

Access2Funding recently expanded into Northern Ireland, Wales and is establishing itself further in Scotland. As part of the firm’s larger growth plan, there are currently multiple vacancies across the UK.
