"Grant Thornton has the same opportunities as a big four firm with the feeling of a small, independent firm."

What did you want to be when you were younger?

Grant Thornton has the same opportunities as a big four firm with the feeling of a small, independent firm.

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.
