Your Opportunity

At Grant Thornton, our audit process is more than a compliance measure. At the heart of our approach is the belief that our robust, independent audits deliver actionable insights and add substantial value for our clients. We are fiercely independent. We work with ASX-listed companies, privately owned businesses and Not for Profits and take the time to understand the organisation, including its profit drivers and key risks.

  • Identifying and reporting on client financial risks with regard to external financial reporting requirements;
  • Executing and delivering on a variety of external audit client engagements in an effective and methodical manner;
  • Preparing high-quality audit reports and related documentation;
  • Managing and mentoring team members on each project engagement team to continually develop the team’s skills and experience;
  • Building successful client relationships with a positive “can do” attitude to challenges and the agility to multitask effectively across competing priorities;
  • Researching difficult audit technical issues and become a trusted advisor to our clients;
  • Working closely with internal teams, as well as clients to identify business development opportunities that will add value to our client’s business

Does This Sound Like You?

We’re looking for an agile, responsive individual who brings innovative ideas to the table. Your passion for understanding your clients’ businesses will see you go beyond addressing technical issues to developing actionable growth recommendations.

  • Collaborative and consultative approach to working with diverse internal stakeholders from Associates up to Partners;
