Selecting a place to start your career is never easy. We understand, and we can help. If you’re looking for an opportunity where you can have an impact, then the choice is easy – Grant Thornton LLP.
Who we are
You know those big cities that still feel like small towns? Where everyone’s friendly and helps each other out? That’s like Grant Thornton. Except here we’re all professionals and there isn’t a mayor or a general store. What we’re trying to say is that we’re a large and growing professional services firm that still feels like a community. We employ over 2500 people across Canada, and we truly care about our colleagues, our clients and the communities where we work and live. That’s what’s most important to us. We’re building a thriving organization that’s purpose driven and still want to remember what your favourite milkshake flavour is.
Our Northern Alberta team will be hosting a series of coffee chats for students who want to know what it’s like to work at Grant Thornton.
What is a coffee chat?
Selected students will spend 30 minutes with members of our team to see what living our purple is really like. It's also a great opportunity for you to ask any burning questions you may have to see if Grant Thornton is right for you. Coffee chats will be hosted virtually so bring your most unique mug filled with your favourite coffee/tea [or water].
Be Grant Thornton
If you’re a bit like us, you’re driven to connect with how others are feeling and thinking. Here we walk in others shoes before taking action. Just imagine being part of a team that puts “we before me”, where flexAbility is a mindset, and where you trust your colleagues to have your back. At Grant Thornton, you’ll work with inspiring leaders who support your development, both personally and professionally. This is a place where your insatiable curiosity enables you to think, see and hear from a variety of perspectives, a place where every day is different and having the courage to grow is part of who you are. And when all this comes together, well that’s when the magic happens!
Interested in getting to know us a bit more? We'd like to get to know you as well. Here's a few more boxes we’re also hoping you can tick:
- You are committed to pursuing the CPA designation and completing the relevant pre-requisites
- You have strong communication skills and are passionate about connecting with those around you
- You demonstrate strong leadership skills and enjoy collaborating with team members
- You enjoy learning new things and taking the initiative
Interested students are required to submit their resume and unofficial transcripts.
Applications must be submitted by Thursday August 13, 2020 [10:00pm] – so don’t wait! If you are selected to attend a coffee chat, you will receive a formal invitation following completion of your digital interview.*
