Grant Thornton graduate programme - what's in it for you

As a graduate, you’ll get the regular, structured training required to become a professionally qualified, trusted business advisor, starting with a national induction in Auckland. Your induction will give you an understanding of our firm, our strategy and direction, and the opportunity to meet senior leaders from the business.

You will be given a range of assignments to give you breadth of experience, along with variety in client sizes and sectors to build your tool kit. There will also be opportunities to specialise in other areas of the business in the future.

You will be assigned a mentor who will work with you to sign off your practical experience requirements for your qualification. To support you on your journey of learning, you’ll be allocated a buddy, who will be the person you can ask questions on a daily basis if needed. They will also help you on your daily work assignments until you are confident enough to go it alone. Your manager will also be there to support you and give you regular feedback on your performance.
