Being a partner in Grant Thornton is so much more than just doing my client work. Whilst this is the cornerstone for me, the firm and my fellow partners are clear that to be a complete professional you need to be rounded in how you act in our professional community.
This means that the firm not only are supportive but indeed encourage us all to get involved in:
How we as partners, directors, managers, staff or trainees choose to embrace this is up to ourselves.
For me, this means I am able to give time to training the accountants of tomorrow.
The accountant of today is vastly different to the accountant of 10 years ago. The profession is vastly wide and offers a huge array of experiences to trainees such as forensic accountancy, consultancy, cyber, assurance, change management etc…
This diversity of work means we need a diverse population of trainees and we welcome and applaud different styles, personalities and views.
At Grant Thornton we truly believe in bringing your whole self to work and the profession and the firm is definitely welcoming and desires a diverse body of trainees.
