What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Try and get some work experience, even if it is just a week here and there our different accountancy, banking or industry firms so that the application can show situations that you have been involved with, and this will greatly help when answering competency based questions. It is good to have a range of different scenarios, from academic examples to work life experiences. This will then give you more to talk about in your application, either why you want to work for Grant Thornton, or why accountancy, rather than just giving a generic answer.
Do you have any interview tips?
Be yourself! Especially when it come to the assessment day, the assessors can tell who is coming across genuinely. Grant Thornton really buys into the person, and therefore doesn't require the most academic, most skilful graduates, but people who they feel are well rounded and have potential to succeed. In audit, tax and advisory, you deal directly with clients. So communication and social skills are a key factor, and can sometimes get you further than just having great academic history.
