Employer: Grant Thornton UK LLP

How to sum up a complex and exciting business like Grant Thornton? Simply put, we're part of a global organisation delivering audit, tax and advisory services to dynamic organisations right at the heart of growth. In the UK alone, we deliver solutions to 40,000 clients, across a wide range of sectors and in 100 countries. 

But it's who we are that sets us apart and enables us to make a difference with the kind of insight we provide clients. We are now a shared enterprise – meaning our people share ideas, responsibility and reward. It's never been a more exciting time to be a part of the firm who has a higher sense of purpose – helping clients to grow a vibrant economy. Business and the way we do it is changing, we are at the start of an exciting journey and recognise the need for agility and collaboration in today's environment. We're starting from within – all 4,500 people thinking and behaving according to our shared mindset for growth. 

Over 400 ambitious graduates, interns and placement students join us in over 20 of our 27 UK offices each year. They enjoy variety and responsibility from the start on exciting client assignments, from multinationals to fast-growth companies such as start-ups. The learning curve is steep.

Trainees can be leading their own team or portfolio by their second year. And in the spirit of shared enterprise there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in outside of the day job.

The structured training, varied on-the-ground client experience and supportive working environment gives trainees the chance to develop and grow as trusted advisers with a deep understanding of business, as well as achieving a respected professional qualification and a competitive salary. 

So what makes a trusted business adviser at the go-to firm for growth? People with a passion for business, who combine technical thinking with their shared insight to give the kind of advice that makes a real difference to the organisations they work with and the wider economy. Grant Thornton's business advisers listen critically, dig deeper and have the confidence to challenge assumptions right from day one. They collaborate, share ideas, seek out opportunities, remain agile and add real value to clients by unlocking their potential for growth.
