Who we are
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).
As a Senior Accountant, Assurance [Audit] some of your responsibilities will include:

Providing solutions to our clients on current business and financial conditions

Planning, preparation and execution of financial statement audits

Working with clients under varying reporting frameworks across different industries and sectors

Working closely with clients and providing exceptional client service

Supervising and training of junior accounting employees

Analysis and initial review of financial statements and financial statement notes

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.
