Career Prospects at Grant Thornton

Please tell us about promotion possibilities and fill us in on what it takes to move up the ranks.

At a lower level, subject to performance. Slightly top heavy so past senior level, promotion is difficult
Graduate, Sydney
There is a clear pathway for individuals to move through. The tasks pertaining to these roles are widely known and available. If you put in the effort, the firm and team will recognise and acknowledge it.
Graduate, Melbourne
Experience and study requirements are required before moving up.
Graduate, Brisbane
Every June the partners and managers decide who to promote. Generally, you can go up a rank every year if you perform well and if the position is needed/has vacancies.
Graduate, Perth
Opportunities are there for high achievers.
Experienced, Sydney
graduate to intermediate to senior to assistant manager to manager to associate director to partner
Graduate, Melbourne
Essentially an 'automatic' promotion through to senior after 2-3 years but then it starts to get a little harder to move up from there. In some divisions, progression seems to happen easier, in others it is more stagnant
Graduate, ADELAIDE
A lot of the movements are all dependent on your ability, experience and attitude towards work. You don't have to work for a specific amount of time to move up into a higher position, as long as you exhibit the characteristics or show potential you are able to move up.
Graduate, Sydney
Promotions are generally quite streamlined until the senior level. After this, your connections/representation and pro-activity have a great deal to do with future promotions. Overall, not extremely difficult with the right connections and personality.
Graduate, Sydney
Promotion available every 6 months though depending on performance and business need
Graduate, Sydney
You get promoted as an intermediate after 1 year of staying on board. Promotions are quite reasonable. To move up - just work hard and be passionate about what you do. Your efforts will be noticed.
Graduate, Sydney
Promotions are reasonably set within the firm for the first 3-4 years. Every July you move up to the next level. Graduate - intermediate - senior 1 - senior 2
Graduate, Sydney
From my position I can move up to senior accountant, then assistant manager, then manager, then senior manager, then partner etc. To move up the ranks employees have to display certain technical and behavioural competences.
Graduate, Cairns
A lot of my colleagues have been promoted very quickly. Majority that have completed CA are either senior accountants or supervisors.
Graduate, Adelaide
As long as you're doing your best and you're putting in the hard work, your efforts will not go unnoticed.
Graduate, Melbourne
If you work hard and provide a good client experience I think you are generally going to be okay in gaining a promotion.
Midlevel, Adelaide
Easy to move up the ranks in the junior years, but slows as you reach manager level.
Graduate, Sydney
Promotions are earned and are given based on merit.
Graduate, Melbourne
Very time based in early periods - rather than ability which can create some annoyance.
Midlevel, Melbourne
promotion is a steady constant in our workplace
Graduate, Melbourne
need to be exceeding expectations for your level to be promoted early, prospect of senior accountant this year
