Join us and you'll shape more than just your career

We believe we're best positioned to make a meaningful impact on the economy. Every day, we provide a diverse range of organisations with the kind of business and financial advice it takes to do this. Our ideas and insights empower our clients to make big decisions about the future and unlock sustainable growth. With a relentless focus on quality and integrity, we help businesses, communities and our people to flourish.

Job Description:

Due to the continued growth and success of our Business Risk Services (BRS) practice, we are seeking an Assistant Manager to join the team. This opportunity will develop and grow your career with high profile clients where each assignment is different from the last.

Let's talk about the job

Here are some things you can expect from this role.
  • Be a part of a team. Our BRS team provide internal audit and risk advisory services to the FTSE100/250 and equivalents, international and major charities and not for profit organisations, and central government departments. You will provide tailored, flexible and cost-effective solutions, that provide access to industry best practice methodology, value add insights and subject matter experts.
  • Making quality second nature. This means doing what's right even when no one's looking. The work that you will do has a major impact on our clients and our firm. We pride ourselves on the high-level standards we have for the work that we do.
  • Own your own work. You'll take ownership of allocated assignments in a way that exceeds client expectations. You'll assist with the preparation of draft terms of reference/audit planning documents and provide input into budgets for internal audit reviews. You'll deliver fieldwork, ensuring all work is performed in accordance with Grant Thornton methodologies, that testing sufficient and appropriate testing has been performed and evidenced to support key decisions.
  • Take responsibility. You'll review fieldwork of more junior team members and provide oversight of engagements, assisting Managers and Director with their client portfolios where necessary. You'll hold close-out meetings with clients to ensure that they have a full understanding of issues identified and these are agreed. You'll document draft and final internal audit reports, ensuring the written work is of a high standard, is factually correct, recommendations are appropriate and tailored to the needs of the intended audience, and required minimal Manager and Partner input.
  • Build your brand. This role offers exciting opportunities for the right person to expand their knowledge. The team has a history of developing internal talent for progression.

The minimum criteria

Professional qualification (ACA, ACCA, CA or IIA)

Experience of internal and/or external auditing

Strong communication skills (both written and oral)

Skills to set you apart

Here are a few more skills we are looking for. Don't worry if you don't tick every box. It's important for us to support you in your role and help you to develop along the way.

  • Extensive experience of using risk and control software and Microsoft packages.
  • Flexibility to be able to travel to client premises when required.
  • Experience of managing audits

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 work together, share ideas and always make time to help each other out.

Leadership: Everyone has the chance to lead their own projects.

Excellence: Quality is central to our purpose. 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 the best of their ability and realise their potential.

"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.
