Change going it alone. Make it teamwork.

We prefer working smart to working late, which leaves lots of time for building lasting relationships. That’s a good thing too, because with so many creative and dynamic people here, you’re going to want to get to know them,

Change the uniform. Make it unique.

We know diverse ideas come from diverse people. That’s why our roles are varied, why we welcome people from a range of backgrounds and why we celebrate Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) in all its forms. We champion D&I in loads of ways, including our Embrace programme. We also run events and other initiatives that show who we are, is what we are - changemakers.

Change the world. Make it better.

We lead by example at Grant Thornton: we operate the way we want to see the world. We’re here to make a real difference both within our business and in the wider community. That’s when the whole Grant Thornton global network gives back. We do this through ‘GT in the Community’ - our people come up with dynamic solutions and provide free services to their local community.

Change habits. Make routines.

At Grant Thornton, we want you to Be Well. That’s why we have a Be Well initiative that covers the 3 pillars of wellbeing: Financial, Physical and Emotional Wellbeing, all supported by our Vhi Employee Assistance Programme. As part of this, we run a programme of activities and information sessions that promote your wellbeing. In the past, we’ve run nurse-led health screenings, Mental Health First Aid Training, given flu vaccines and put on a workplace wellbeing day. We’ve also hosted talks on resilience, nutrition and mindfulness. For those of you who want to, you can do Couch to 5k with our running clubs. On top of all that, we also have banking at work and run financial fitness talks. Everything you need to Be Well, in all meanings of the word.

Change the planet. Make it green.

We care about the planet and your future world at Grant Thornton. That’s why we’ve made sustainability a key part of our business strategy. In 2020, we partnered with Irish Funds to create Sustainathon, an initiative that helps the Irish Funds industry tackle climate change together. But that’s not all - we’re working hard to reduce the impact of our business on the environment and are committed to reducing our carbon footprint 50% by 2030. To empower you to travel sustainably, we’ve gotten Bleeper Bikes installed outside our City Quay office and Fleet bikes outside our regional ones. Don’t worry if your cycling skills are rusty - we’ll be running safe cycling courses throughout the year! So get ready to make the world a better place.

Change your dreams. Make them realities

We’re on the lookout for bright, confident people, just like you. If you’re on track to get a minimum 2.1 in your degree and have strong IT skills, then we want you to work with us. We’re seeking out new grads who can communicate their ideas, work well both as a team member and team leader, and who want to make a real difference to the firm. If you’re willing to challenge yourself, help others solve problems and are on board with what we stand for, then what are you waiting for? Become a changemaker with Grant Thornton.
