Growing together with our people

At our firm, we don’t want you to separate your ‘work’ self from your ‘personal’ self. For one, we don’t think it’s possible. Rather, we value the diversity and individuality of our people; we value your whole self.

We care deeply about all our people. We know that many of you want to create a better balance in your life. You value your family and you want to be authentic to who you are. We’re creating an environment where our people are supported to fully embrace and achieve the things that are important to them, both professionally and personally.

We encourage our people to be authentic and we accept that everyone is unique. We foster a collaborative approach in our work because we believe that we are better together. We encourage all our people to continually grow and develop, both personally and professionally and we offer our people meaningful and interesting work so that they can feel confident they are contributing to the growth of our clients. Through transformational leadership, we empower our people to make a difference.

Our People Promise is why staff choose to work at Grant Thornton and why they continue to grow and develop their careers with us.

Our social club

We have an active social club which organises various events for staff to enjoy. Recently, these have included island tours, chocolate-making lessons, gin tasting, summer bbqs, sea foraging, casino nights and quarterly drinks events, to name a few.  We also organise various team building events, and trips to our neighbouring islands and France. The latest big event was held in the island of Herm which has no cars, no crowds and definitely no stress. It was the perfect place for both of the Grant Thornton offices to meet up, share ideas, have some fun and take part in exciting and enjoyable team building activities.


Encouraging a positive lifestyle 

At Grant Thornton we aim to be fit, healthy and active. We run regular health and wellbeing initiatives and frequently participate in, and sponsor, various island sporting events, including marathons, cycling, cricket and rugby.  Our annual Grant Thornton Inter-Insular STEP Challenge is a great way for staff to get fit and bring out their competitive side!
