The need for talent in a changing world

Grant Thornton’s Financial Accounting and Advisory Services (FAAS) offers Flexible People Solutions (FLEX) designed to specifically help finance leaders access the talent and skills they need when and where they need it, allowing them to maximise their potential and deliver on their business objectives.

Our Flexible People Solutions team is made up of accomplished finance professionals with years of industry and practical experience. As proven problem solvers and subject-matter experts, our FLEX team brings the agility and know-how needed to hit the ground running, increase the capability and capacity of finance teams and help finance leaders achieve all that is possible.

How Flexible People solutions support our clients

FLEX supplies senior finance talent and expertise to clients who require a specific type of engagement for short- or medium-term assignments. FAAS sources talent either from specialist Grant Thornton teams or from a specially curated pool of external consultants. These finance professionals bring hands-on expertise to our clients’ most important projects and initiatives while also bridging short-term management level gaps for day-to day operations as well as temporary cover for permanent roles.­
