"It was the employee-driven values that cemented my decision to take the role."

Lily Douglas - Audit Associate

What is your background?

I studied Ancient History at the University of Manchester and after university I had a short career in law before realising that I wished to pursue a career in accounting.

Why did you choose to work for Grant Thornton?

I was attracted to Grant Thornton primarily because of its international affiliations with offices in over 130 countries, however, it was the employee-driven values that cemented my decision to take the role.

What is your role and what do you like about your position?

I am an Audit Associate. I enjoy the variety of my role and working at Grant Thornton allows me to work with many different types of clients, from charities to trust funds.

Why do you like working at Grant Thornton?

Grant Thornton is a good place to start your career in accounting as, from my experience, everyone is willing to help with any questions you have. Also, as the teams are small you are exposed to all areas of the audit, creating well-rounded training which allows you to have more responsibility, at a good pace.
