As a placement student in Public Sector Audit (PSA), you soon learn that when Grant Thornton job advertisements state that your job role will entail early responsibility, they are not joking! You will be plunged straight into work after your first week of induction training, with a supportive team around to answer questions and to help you get to grips with the day-to-day activities of your job.
However, as is typical with audit, there are peaks and troughs in the volume of work throughout the year. During quieter periods, you can utilise your time to learn more about the business and your chosen department. Commercial awareness is widely valued at Grant Thornton, so an understanding both your clients and the wider assurance department helps you to improve the quality of your work.
I interviewed Richard Percival, an Associate Director in the Birmingham office to learn more about the world of Audit. His candid replies offer a more personal insight into PSA, and he has a few words of advice for those of you that may still be uncertain of whether to apply for an intern or trainee role, helping you to make an informed decision based upon your interests and motivations. It’s not a shortest of articles, but it is definitely worth a read, so here goes! Read this post
Jenny here 🙂 This week, we’ve got a great blog from one of our associates in Government Infrastructure Advisory.. So if you’re interested in finding out more about what GIA do and what the role of the associate involves, please keep reading! 🙂
If you’re anything like me, sometimes you get curious about what different roles in the firm look like. So we thought we’d share with you a 3 minute interview with one of our tax senior managers, Richard Perry where we find out more about what Richard gets up to! I hope you enjoy 🙂
