Looking to kick start your career right at the heart of business?

Employers are full of advice when it comes to recruiting great talent. Largely it's 'choose us'. Our approach is different. We invite you to get to know us, understand what we have to offer, and listen to what our people have to say about Grant Thornton – then decide for yourself whether that fits in with what you're looking for. That's our advice.

What do we offer?

Leaders who support your development - We offer extensive training and support to help you obtain your CPA designation, as well as best-in-class management skills and leadership development opportunities to support our people as they advance along their chosen career path

Clear path for advancement - In addition to a career in audit, we also offer numerous career options across Canada in practice areas such as tax, corporate finance, forensic accounting, mergers and acquisitions, recovery and reorganization and many more. We can map out a clear path for your career advancement in the service area that interests you most.

Interesting and challenging client engagements - The profile of our clients and the nature of our services allow us to offer interesting and challenging work and assignments for our people, including our entry level professionals

A really great place to work - Grant Thornton has been recognized by the Great Place to Work as one of Canada's Best Workplaces for the last nine consecutive years

Flexibility - At Grant Thornton we work hard. But we also know how to have fun and we respect the fact that our people have lives outside of work, which sometimes requires a flexible schedule or work arrangement. While your first two years will be focused on completing your CPA designation, your flexibility options will increase after that

Competitive Total Rewards - We benchmark our compensation practices externally on a frequent and regular basis to ensure that we provide competitive compensation and benefits for our people

Global opportunities - We have more offices across Canada than any other professional services firm. As well, we're part of a global organization with offices in more than 130 countries

An opportunity to make a difference - From the targeted efforts of the Grant Thornton Foundation, to our Campus Charity Campaign, to the grass roots activities that take place across the firm every day, we're committed to making a difference in the communities in which we work and live

What we're looking for:

  • Demonstrated academic excellence
  • An ability to create and build meaningful relationships based on strong rapport, trust and respect
  • Keen interest in developing the capability to provide business advice to multiple clients across different industries
  • Ability to analyze and navigate complex information and data
  • An articulate and versatile communicator
  • Intellectually curious and entrepreneurial with the initiative to find ways to make things happen
  • Demonstrating resilience and confidence in the face of sudden change
  • A commitment to pursuing the CPA designation and completing the relevant designation pre-requisites
