About Grant Thornton

Hero image for Grant Thornton

Grant Thornton UK LLP is part of a global network of independent audit, tax and advisory firms, made up of some 58,000 people in over 135 countries. We’re a team of team of independent thinkers who put quality, inclusion and integrity first. All around the world we bring a different experience to our clients. A better experience. One that delivers the expertise they need in a way that goes beyond. Personal, proactive, and agile. That’s Grant Thornton. 

While others might offer the same services, we do things differently. We never settle for what’s easy, we do what’s right – right for our firm, right for our clients, and right for society. We go beyond the norm to ensure we’re playing a responsible role in the world – supporting local charities, investing in global entrepreneurs, and using our skills to make communities better.

Covering the full range of clients, experiences are truly there for the taking. And with exposure to clients from early in their career, graduates will take on real responsibility and benefit from the knowledge and experience of colleagues.

Our flat structure gives graduates amazing opportunities to interact with senior business figures early in their career, and with support from managers and exceptional training opportunities we will do everything we can to help build the foundations for a great professional career.

Once qualified, the opportunities for graduates open up even further. You can keep progressing in your team, explore a different business area or travel abroad and work at one of the 135 Grant Thornton member firms around world.

We care more about your potential than academic achievements alone. Helping to get your working life off to a flying start. We’re looking for people who can add value, spark fresh ideas and go beyond expectations. People that want to be able to proudly do what's right for the firm, their colleagues, their clients and themselves. It's how it should be.

We believe we’re best positioned to make a meaningful impact on the economy. After all, we provide organisations with the business and financial advice they need to make big decisions and unlock sustainable growth. As one of our trainees, you’ll help us provide our clients with the insight and ideas they need for the future of their business.

Here, we do things differently. We give our people the freedom to drive change and shape their own destinies. Free to be themselves, our people are inspired to make a difference. Our collaborative culture means we share ideas as well as the responsibility for making them happen. While our fresh thinking and agile working helps businesses, communities and our people to flourish.

Recruitment process

Provide details of the length and stages of your recruitment process

Your application journey with us will start with filling out a quick and easy online registration form. We’ve moved away from having long and time intensive application forms in favour for something that provides a smoother, shorter and more engaging experience for all our candidates – this means we’re only asking you what we really need to know, simply what we call ‘the essentials’, which will take around 10-20 minutes.

Depending on the programme you're applying to, you'll be invited to participate in either an online assessment or a digital interview.

Following the successful completion of the online testing, you will be invited to one of our Experience Days in which you will complete a one on one interview and a Group Exercise task.

Culture and values

As well as a distinctive global culture, we have developed six core principles, known as our CLEARR values.

Collaboration: ask for help, give help – we work well together

Leadership: have courage and inspire others – we challenge each other to be the best we can be

Excellence: find a better way every time – we never get complacent

Agility: think broadly, act quickly – we thrive in change

Respect: listen and understand, be forthright – we create honest relationships

Responsibility: use influence wisely – we own our actions
