School Leaver & Graduate (Associate) Training Programmes

Training takes between 3 and 5 years – the time you'll typically need to complete the exams and the practical experience required to achieve your professional qualification.

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 and you will be ready to take on ever-greater responsibilities within our teams. Choosing between the different qualifications can seem daunting at first, but don't worry too much at this stage, as our People & 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 in your team be ready to share the benefit of their knowledge and experience, you'll also have best-in-class training resources at your disposal.

We will fully support you during your studies, from paid study leave and examination time to funding all the necessary formal tuition (provided by external specialists) needed to enable you to become qualified in your chosen field of expertise. In addition, we will provide you with both on-the-job and structured learning and development, with experienced team members delivering coaching, mentoring and training.

Grant Thornton in the Channel Islands can trace its roots back nearly 40 years providing accounting and business services to the local communities.

During this time it has seen tremendous change in the way business is conducted both locally and globally. The modern day Grant Thornton, with over 100 staff and offices in both Jersey and Guernsey, comes as a result of a merger between Jersey based Le Sueur Ireson and Guernsey based Chandlers Limited in 2008.

Since then, the firm has continued to grow, and is now one of the largest independent accountancy firms in the Channel Islands. Today the firm provides its services to clients locally and globally and provides a seamless service to companies and organisations that have a presence around the world.

Grant Thornton in the Channel Islands, with its access to member firms of Grant Thornton International, can provide a complete and highly effective range of services to the modern day business both at home and abroad.
