About Grant Thornton
We are part of a global organisation providing business and financial advice to clients that demand world-leading solutions. As an innovative, and award-winning firm, we work with over 40,000 businesses in the UK alone. We are a complex, ambitious and dynamic organisation and work with clients at some of the most exciting parts of their growth journeys.
Over 400 school leavers, graduates, placement students and interns join us in over 20 of our UK offices each year. Ask our trainees. Time and again they praise the value of the hands-on work they get with us. You won’t be stuck doing the same thing, month after month – you’ll be taking responsibility on assignments that last from a few days to a couple of months across a range of different sectors.
Accelerate School Leaver Trainee
Our Accelerate school leaver programme is growing quickly, and we're proud to have been named the best accountancy firm to work for on The Job Crowd, based on the impartial reviews of our current school leavers. You'll join a class of almost 100 on a programme that's all about stretch and development within a supportive and down-to-earth environment. You'll get involved with real client work from the outset as well as spend time with your peer group to work on critical skills such as business impact, presentation skills and building successful professional relationships.
As part of our accelerate programme you'll join a core business area, either audit or tax. Audit is split into two areas – commercial and public sector. Tax is split into several areas – corporate tax and various specialist tax areas. If you 'd love to join our accelerate programme but you're not sure what's the right area for you, don't worry, you don't have to decide right away. Once you've explored, if you're still not sure, you can apply to our accelerate programme and if your application is successful, we'll help you reach a decision.
In place of a degree you’ll train to become a respected business adviser, get AAT, ATT or ACCA qualified, depending on the area you join. You’ll get top-quality training, plus plenty of support, variety and responsibility at every stage.
Our school leavers are independent thinkers who look for opportunities, love challenges and believe what they do matters. To apply, you’ll need a real interest in business and a desire to make an impact – and you don’t need to be a recent school leaver to join the programme – anyone without a degree who has a passion for business can apply.
