"Grant Thornton has the same opportunities as a big four firm with the feeling of a small, independent firm."
Liz Hawke - Tax Manager
What did you want to be when you were younger?
I wanted to be an hotel manager and did a degree in hospitality management with a view to making it my career.

I needed to change careers as hotel work does not easily fit in with family life. I sort of fell into tax.
Why did you choose to work for Grant Thornton?
Grant Thornton has the same opportunities as a big four firm with the feeling of a small, independent firm.
How has Grant Thornton helped you grow professionally?
I joined the firm as an Associate and am now an Assistant Manager. As well as offering me opportunities for promotion, the Company has also supported me through my studies; I’m now ATT and CTA qualified.
Why do you like working at Grant Thornton?
I work with friendly and sociable colleagues. All staff - including at Director level - are approachable. My job is varied and interesting and I’m given the opportunity to work on a diverse range of clients and help train other member of staff.
