Interested in joining Grant Thornton?

Whether you join as a school leaver or as a graduate, you have the choice of specialising in one of three different business areas. Even if you're not sure which one is for you, don't let that stop you applying. We can help you come to a decision during the interview process.


As one of our auditors, you'll analyse the annual accounts of organisations to ensure they are a true and fair reflection of actual financial positions.


Specialise in this area and you'll come up with intelligent tax solutions for large businesses or high net worth individuals.

Recovery & Reorganisation

Join this team and you'll be working with firms in financial trouble, coming up with solutions that will often require business restructuring.

How you will be trained

Training to be an accountant takes between 3 and 5 years – the time you'll typically need to complete the exams that lead to professional qualifications. Studying for the exams themselves is challenging enough, but at the same time we'll also expect you to be taking on ever-greater responsibilities within our teams.

It's certainly a challenging experience. But it's also a rewarding one. Once you've completed your exams you'll have a valuable qualification that's a great foundation for a huge range of business careers – and of course, we'll be very keen to keep your skills and experience within the firm. Choosing between the different qualifications can seem daunting at first, but don't worry too much at this stage, as our People and Culture team will be able to assist you in finding the right route.

No matter which route you follow, you are sure to have the best possible support at Grant Thornton. Not only will everyone on your team be ready to share the benefit of their experience, but you'll also have best-in-class training resources at your disposal. The firm pays for your formal tuition, provided by external specialists and we also give you time off to help progress your studies.
