The world's leading organisations look to Grant Thornton to deliver the right advice at the right time. Every day, they come to us for independent accounting, tax and advisory services. We help dynamic organisations unlock their potential for growth by delivering timely and actionable insights. With 42,000 people in more than 130 countries, we understand that talented people drive all of our successes.

Responsibility from day one

Our vacation experience program will give you a preview of what it feels like to be a professional adviser whilst you are still studying. It will provide you with invaluable insight and help shape your future career strategy. From day one, our vacationers are given hands-on experience on a variety of projects – investigating issues, undertaking analysis and providing practical suggestions.

We make a conscious effort to ensure your time with us in your chosen service line is full and rewarding. You will receive coaching, as well as learning and development opportunities to support you beyond the program. At Grant Thornton a fulfilling and successful vacation experience may also lead to a Graduate opportunity with us!
