Grant Thornton selection process
When you’re looking for a new job, people often love to share their thoughts on what you should do. Employers are quick to offer their thoughts too – usually along the lines of "choose us".
At Grant Thornton, we do things differently. We want you to get to know us, understand what we can offer you, and listen to what others have to say about our firm. Then you’ll know if our roles fit with what you’re looking for. That’s our advice to you.
If you do decide to apply – and we’d love you to consider our firm – then here are a few hints to help make the process as smooth as possible.
Get to know us
This is vital first step. Do your research on us – explore our website, Facebook and LinkedIn page. Have a look at what we do, and our approach to business. Also, if you happen to see us at a career fair make sure to speak to our representatives to ask any questions you might have.
Before you apply, make sure you know which of our service lines interest you. Our student & graduates programs are designed to grow your skills, so don’t be afraid to try something a little different from what you might have studied at university.
Search for your dream role
Have a look at the positions that are currently on offer at our firm by visiting our job openings board. This displays all student and graduate roles currently available across our Departments and Service Lines.
Apply for a job opening
Once you find a job that looks like a good fit, you can apply for it directly from our website or you can send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. We advise that you include the job title and reference code for the position for which you are interested to apply.
Receiving your CV
Shortly after we receive your CV we will contact you to let you know about the next steps of our selection process. We will also ask you to fill in two online questionnaires.
The first questionnaire is an additional chance to give us more of your educational and professional background information and also helps us understand why you chose to apply for a job with us and how you would fit into our organization.
The second questionnaire is a personality questionnaire which will helps us get to know you better before the interviews. There is no right or wrong answer to this questionnaire.
We will also invite you to partake in one of our testing sessions held at out Athens offices. Through this we aim to learn about your skills and capabilities.
The Testing Session lasts approximately 2 hours and consists of a Logical Thinking Test and a Math Test. We also provide optional additional tests such as Accounting Test or Tax Law Test for those who are interested in applying for a relevant tax position. You do not need to be prepared for these tests.
Meet our People & Culture team
If your application and results meets the requirements of the role, our People & Culture team will call you to arrange interview times and location.
The next step is for you to meet our people. This could include interviews with Service Line / Department Partners, team members and our People & Culture representatives.
These interviews will be a chance for us to learn more about your previous experiences, technical skills and interests, and to provide an opportunity for you to get to know us, the culture at Grant Thornton and the requirements of the role.
Receive an offer
After we complete these steps we will extend an offer of employment. Congratulations!
Once you accept our offer, a member of our People & Culture team will provide you with an overview of your induction and first few days with us.
Starting your new career
From day one, we'll ensure that you have the tools you need for a successful and meaningful career at Grant Thornton. You will receive a comprehensive induction, and you will be appointed with a counselor who will support you.
