Requirements

Discover Your Impact

You know those big cities that still feel like small towns? Where everyone’s friendly and helps each other out? That’s like Grant Thornton. Except here we’re all professionals and there isn’t a mayor or a general store. What we’re trying to say is that we’re a very different kind of professional services firm where culture is at the heart of who we are and what we do. We employ about 2000 people across Canada, and we truly care about helping our clients, colleagues, and communities thrive. That’s what’s most important to us. We’re building a special organization that’s purpose driven and as we grow we always want to remember what your favourite milkshake flavour is (ours is grape, just so you know).

Discover what success feels like here

If you’re a bit like us, you’re driven to connect with how others are feeling and thinking. Here we walk in others shoes before taking action. Just imagine being part of a team that puts we before me, where flexibility is a mindset, and where you trust your colleagues to have your back. At Grant Thornton, you’ll work with inspiring leaders who support your development, both personally and professionally. This is a place where your insatiable curiosity enables you to think, see and hear from a variety of perspectives, a place where every day is different and having the courage to grow is part of who you are. And when all this comes together, well that’s when the magic happens.

Discover your voice within an award winning culture

Grant Thornton has been recognized by the Great Place To Work Institute for 11 years in a row as one of Canada’s best workplaces. In surveys of students across Canada, we have been consistently recognized as a top 100 employer in Canada. This is your opportunity to experience it for yourself!

We believe flexibility in our way of working is essential to creating a culture and environment that enables our firm to achieve our Purpose to help our clients, colleagues and communities thrive.

Discover Your Best Self

Imagine working for an organization that believes in the power of authenticity in everything that we do. Whether you’re working on a client file, lobster fishing in Nova Scotia or rock-climbing in the Rockies we want you to bring your whole self to work.

You’ll be a part of a team where leadership is shared, and your colleagues at all levels are fiercely committed to your development.
