Speaking of the new service offering, Fergus Condon, Partner and Head of Financial Accounting and Advisory Services (FAAS) with Grant Thornton said,

‘The workforce is evolving and changing at a much faster pace than we have seen in decades, and Grant Thornton’s new Flexible People Solutions service is designed to respond to this.

‘Our clients tell us they need people for their business without the commitment of hiring a full-time employee and this does exactly that; it offers experienced people across a range of levels from newly qualified professions to Director who will adapt quickly using their expertise to fulfil the client’s need.

‘There is a lot of uncertainty out there in terms of the economy, changing environments, rising costs, and inflation, and so flexibility and adaptability are required. That is exactly what we are offering here.’

The Grant Thornton International Business Report survey carried out in the first half of 2022 found that almost half (45%) of businesses in Ireland report access to talent as a constraint to growth.

The areas of expertise available through Grant Thornton’s Flexible People Solutions include budgeting and forecasting, compliance and financial statement preparation, mergers and acquisitions integration, project management, and technical accounting.
