Job Description:

Let's talk about the role

Here are some things you can expect from this Assistant Manager role.

  • Making quality second nature. Quality is key to everything we do. On a practical level, the work we produce feeds into our clients group reporting and accuracy is absolutely key. You will have an opportunity to deliver quality work and to do your own research where required into eg., accounting and VAT issues.
  • Own your own work. We empower our people to take ownership and encourage them to stretch and to develop their skills, welcoming suggestions for improvements of systems and processes.
  • Be a part of a team. Our team is supportive of each other whilst allowing people space for their own on the job learning and development. You will work with a small team of people on each client.
  • Take responsibility. You will have the opportunity to work under minimal supervision whilst still being supported where needed, with the expectation that you deliver to your role.
  • Build your brand. You will have direct contact with clients so as to build relationships as well as opportunities to build your network within Grant Thornton through involvement in activities and events across the wider office where you wish to take part.

Do you care about the same things we do?

We have six values we work by. When we meet, we'll want you to show us how they're important to you, too.

Collaboration: We are aligned around a common purpose that unites us in providing the same quality experience for our clients and our people, seamlessly across borders.

Leadership: We are committed to the success of our clients, our people, our profession, and our stakeholders at large, demonstrating leadership at all levels.

Excellence: We are passionate about exceeding expectation and delivering high quality work. We love what we do, and it shows. We sweat the details. We see things through, no matter how tricky.

Agility: The world moves quickly. To keep up, we stay flexible - changing approaches, changing projects, working offline, online, together and alone to get things done.

Respect: A given, of course: we value each other and our clients. We listen, we understand, we care.

Responsibility: The decisions we make and advice we give affects people's lives and livelihoods. We take that seriously and always do well by doing what's right.

Bring your whole self

Now you've seen our values, it shouldn't be a surprise that we're creating a respectful, open, diverse place to work. Building an inclusive culture, where we value difference and respect our colleagues, is not just the right thing to do, it helps our people to perform at their best. We provide opportunities for all our people to fulfil their potential by embracing and respecting difference whether that is age, disability, ethnicity, faith, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, socioeconomic background, working style, education and family or care responsibilities.

"We are committed to making sure that the opportunities within our firm are equally accessible for everyone - regardless of background or gender." Dave Dunckley, CEO

There's more to life than work

Families, children, sports, night classes...the things you do and the people you're with outside work matter. They can inspire, motivate and energise you. Inside the office and out. So if you'd like to work flexibly, let us know. We're happy to look at flexible working options for all our roles, and we'll always do our best to keep your work and life in balance.
