What we offer

Why Grant Thornton?

Put simply, we offer the opportunity for you to excel without compromise. We offer programmes tailored for different levels with the firm and extensive support for those striving to become CA or CPA qualified. As a graduate, you’ll get the regular, structured training required to become a professionally qualified, trusted business adviser, starting with a national induction which will give you an understanding of our firm, our strategy and direction, and the opportunity to meet senior leaders from the business. 


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’re confident to go it alone. Your manager will also be there to support you and give you regular feedback on your performance. A mentor will be assigned to you and will work with you to sign off your practical experience requirements for your qualification. 

Professional qualifications

As you study towards your professional qualification (either CA or CPA), the firm will pay for your membership fees, module registration fees, provide paid study leave, have subject matter experts available to answer questions, and we’ll provide workshops to help you cement your learning. And there is our competitive starting bonus and salary, time off for your graduation and other benefits.
