The role:

The role involves working closely with managers and other senior personnel within Grant Thornton, and with key finance people in both publicly listed companies and multinational entities.

As organisations and their business requirements become more innovative, complex and span more jurisdictions so too do the challenges faced by their accounting and finance functions. The Grant Thornton FAAS team are a group of proactive accounting specialists who are focused on providing practical solutions to our clients’ complex financial reporting needs. Our FAAS team must be agile – whether assisting with advice related to transactions or working to tight compliance deadlines. See where a career in FAAS can take you.

So, when you join Grant Thornton, we will work hard to ensure that is how you feel. We want you for who you are.
