Read Full Article

When you are looking to start or change your career, people often love to share their thoughts on what you should do. Employers are quick to offer their thoughts too – usually along the lines of ‘choose us’.

At Grant Thornton, we do things differently. We want you to get to know us, understand what we can offer you and listen to what others have to say about our firm. Then you will know if our organisation and our roles fit with what you are looking for. That is our advice to you.

If you do decide to apply – and we’d love you to consider our firm – then here is some information to help make the process as easy as possible.

Get to know us

This is a vital first step. Do your research on us – explore our website, Facebook and LinkedIn pages. Have a look at what we do and our approach to business. You can also make contact with a member of our People & Culture team (recruitment@gt-ci.com) and/or speak to one of our representatives at the next Channel Islands careers event.

Before you apply, make sure you know which of our service lines interests you:

Audit

Our audit process is more than an annual compliance measure. As one of our auditors, you'll inspect our clients’ annual accounts and analyse them to ensure they are a true and fair reflection of actual financial positions. At the heart of our approach is the belief that our robust, independent audits deliver actionable insights and add substantial value for our clients. We provide audit and assurance services to a wide range of clients and their financial stakeholders, from fast growing and established businesses to public companies competing in global markets.

Tax

The work of tax is a combination of compliance and tax advisory work. Our tax specialists are involved in the completing and filing of annual tax returns and the giving of advice on anything from new residents coming to the islands to tax efficient structuring of a business disposal.

Recovery & Reorganisation

Regarded by many as the “go to” firm for insolvency in the Channel Islands. Join this team and you'll be working with firms in financial trouble (all kinds of businesses including those operating in the financial sector) by providing insolvency, liquidation, recovery and reorganisation services.

Business Advisory

Our Business Advisory team are passionate about helping our clients manage the challenges of the business cycle by implementing innovative accounting and business solutions to help our clients grow. We develop close, long-term relationships with our clients and work to understand their personal and business needs and aspirations, and tailor our services to suit their requirements.

As a member of the Business Advisory team, you will assist with providing accounting, nominal ledger maintenance, payroll, bookkeeping and accounts preparation services to owner managed businesses and other local organisations.

Apply by submitting, via email, your covering letter and CV to our People & Culture team at recruitment@gt-ci.com. When preparing your covering letter, keep in mind that we are keen to know why you think you will be a good fit for Grant Thornton and the role that you are applying for. This will help us determine your suitability. We are looking for people who have passion and are curious to learn to new things.

Note: please only apply once for each open vacancy.

Assessment process

We know you have put lots of time and effort into the application process, and now we want to give you the opportunity to shine in person.

If you have been successful in moving to the next stage, you will be sent an email inviting you to take part in the interview assessment process.

Our competency based interviews are designed to get the best from you, not intimidate you. If you are successful in progressing through the whole process, you will meet with both our People & Culture representative and the service line manager(s).

Before you attend any interview, have a think about these things:

  • what motivates you?
  • what attributes do you possess that are relevant to the role that you are applying for?
  • what examples can you provide to demonstrate your core competencies?
  • what questions do you have about our business: how we work, our clients, our industry, how you might fit into the business, how your career will develop and what you may expect to accomplish in your first 12 months?

Receive an offer

A member of our People & Culture team will let you know the outcome of the assessment process.

If you have been successful, you will receive an offer to join Grant Thornton. If you accept, this will mark the start of your career with us!

Take a little time to celebrate your achievement – you have earned it!
