Some advice just states the obvious.
But to give the kind of advice that’s going to make a real difference to your clients you’ve got to listen critically, dig beneath the surface, challenge assumptions and be credible and confident enough to make suggestions right from the start.
At Grant Thornton you’ve got to be ready to kick start a career right at the heart of business.
At Grant Thornton we look for the exceptional – top marks are just the starting point. We look for people with passion and enthusiasm and a burning desire to make a difference. You want more than just a job or to achieve your designation – you want a challenging, interesting professional experience that will position you to take full advantage of your career options in the future. We’re looking for people who can thrive in our environment and contribute in a compelling way early in their career – people who really care about making a difference.
Our firm is very successful, and we attribute that success to our people. Our clients are very loyal and they tell us time and again that they do business with our firm because of the quality of our people. The Grant Thornton brand is synonymous with trust.
For all of these reasons we are highly selective when recruiting new team members. In addition to strong academic credentials, we select people based on their ability to deliver our brand promise – to help our clients unlock their potential for growth. This requires an ability to offer insights by combining both reason and instinct; by being intellectually curious and applying exceptional critical thinking skills.
We look for people with demonstrated potential to be more than a technical advisor – people with broad perspectives and experiences and an exceptional ability to build meaningful relationships. It’s about having a sense of optimism – a ‘can do’ attitude; and about sharing ownership for the success of the team.
We are entrepreneurial, we’re a brand on the move, and we have an ambitious vision. Those who thrive in our environment are highly engaged and work hard to make a difference every day, for our clients, our colleagues, and the communities across Canada in which we work and live.
