"I am encouraged to think beyond the ordinary."

Carizza Repollo - Audit Assistant Manager

What did you want to be when you were younger?

When I was younger I wanted to be a nurse. I don’t know why but I used to have this fascination with their white uniforms - they look so pristine to me. I later realised that being a nurse is so much more than that, plus I am not sure if needles are my friends.

What made you choose your current profession?

Being an auditor was not really in the list of my dream professions, maybe because I had not heard much about it growing up. When I was about to go to university I came across accountancy. It is a fulfilling career. We help businesses improve on what they do, maximize their potential and, since every business is different from another, the learning you gain is endless.

Why did you choose to work for Grant Thornton?

I chose Grant Thornton because I was confident that they would help me grow as a professional by giving me the perfect experiences and opportunities while working in an environment where everyone is valued.

How has Grant Thornton helped you grow professionally?

At Grant Thornton I am exposed to clients from diverse types of industries, I get to work with people from different backgrounds and I am encouraged to think beyond the ordinary. All of which expands my knowledge, widens my perspective and makes me the best in what I do.

What do you most like about working at Grant Thornton?

My Managers and Directors do not just tell me what to do; they value my ideas and opinions and we really do work as a team. Also, the firm puts effort into organising social events where people across departments get to know each other better - it makes the workplace fun. I also appreciate that Grant Thornton celebrates diversity and respects individuality.
