Jack Bracken tells us all about what life in Advisory is like.

I joined Grant Thornton after completing my degree in languages. I was drawn to the role as it was a fantastic chance to compliment the skills I had acquired during college with the new horizons offered by a global professional services firm. I was so impressed when each member of my team reached out to have a chat with me one to one in in my first two weeks! I felt at home right away. The energy and the passion of my colleagues has been the greatest source of inspiration in my career.

When it comes to Consulting, every day is different. If your days are the same then you need to make a change! Quick thinking is essential, but the variety of clients and tasks allows each person to focus on an area that they enjoy and thrive or an area they would like to upskill in. Managers are open to any ideas and your professional development is their top priority. You will learn something new every day!

Hybrid working is a staple part of Consulting life now and it allows for amazing flexibility when structuring your week. It is the best of both worlds when you can dedicate a day in the office for meetings and a day at home to get to work on the tasks that require greater focus.

I look forward to the next few years and the experience I’ll gain!
