Grant Thornton UK LLP – Why Work For Us?


Come and think independently with an organisation that’s doing the same. We’re determined to help shape a vibrant economy in the UK and beyond.

We believe we’re best positioned to make a meaningful impact on the economy. Every day, we provide a diverse range of organisations with the kind of business and financial advice it takes to do this. Our ideas and insight empower our clients to make big decisions about the future and unlock sustainable growth. Through our fresh thinking and agile working, we help businesses, communities and our people to flourish.

We work with banks, regulators and government to rebuild trust. We work with dynamic organisations to help them grow. And we work with the public sector to build a business environment that supports growth, including national and local public services. 

Being part of a dynamic global firm driven by independent thinkers, we provide high quality business and financial advice to a wide range of clients in countries all over the world.

  • Over the past 18 months we’ve brought together over 1,000 business and community leaders from across the UK to share their aspirations. We've collected their thoughts and ideas and created a set of recommendations we're sharing with government
  • As a result of our conversations, we’ve created taskforces to tackle some of the big issues facing society today, like the housing crisis and the future of work.


Moving towards becoming a shared enterprise

Everybody here plays their part. It’s a real team effort. It’s why our unique culture is built around collaboration and over the past few years we’ve been making big changes - moving towards becoming a shared enterprise. We share ideas.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton UK LLP (London, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Started off with an online application which is basically the screening. Then comes the strengths based interview which they use to see whether you match their competencies eg their CLEARR value. Then comes the online interview phase which consists of 10 questions and a second part that has the case study in it.
