The role @ Sumo

An opportunity has arisen for a brand new role as part of the Sumo Group (Sumo) Finance team, working closely with the business leadership, commercial and operational teams, and external advisors. The role will be responsible for Sumo’s Video Games Tax Relief income (VGTR) and Corporation tax obligations.

This role is more than just tax compliance. VGTR is one of the UK government’s Creative Industry tax reliefs, aimed at encouraging investment and job creation in the UK creative and digital sectors, and allows video game developers to claim a rebate against production costs. VGTR is an important component of Sumo’s commercial considerations and ensuring games qualify for the relief and that VGTR is structured correctly within development contracts is essential.

This role is a fantastic opportunity to be part of the Sumo family and make a key contribution to helping Sumo achieving its strategic goals.

Our environment is relaxed, friendly and built upon the basis of every team member having the opportunity to shine and have a realisable input into the games we create. We are a very happy ship with lots of incredibly nice people that partake in shared interest groups, lunchtime clubs, charity fundraising events and lots of socialising.

We are proud to be located in Sheffield, just off J34 of the M1 offering easy road and rail access from Leeds, Manchester and the Midlands. Sheffield itself enjoys wealth of facilities including world class sporting facilities, stunning theatres and galleries, the National Video Game Museum, shopping, restaurants and incredible parks and green spaces - all on the doorstep of the beautiful Peak District National Park.
