Loved that my first Christmas card for the year was from the Partners at the Cambridge office. I’ve never seen them look so festive 🎄 #gtlife #itsbeginningtofeelalotlikechristmas
Cambridge audit celebrating Christmas on ice ❄️ #gtlife #cambridgenorthpole
Brilliant workshop run by Kathy Thompson and @harp4l around presentation skills - building confidence, controlling nervousness, understanding your audience, and building our stories to share with the world. My brain is super exhausted after today which is always an awesome sign of how beneficial the workshop was and how much there is to take away and apply in the real world as we develop our business development roles as @grantthorntonuk Business Advisers! 👌🏻💜 #gtlife #bradenham #businessadviser #development
Hark’s story: “My internship was a steep learning curve. But it was also fun, enjoyable and support was always on hand.
I was a bit worried at first about my lack of accounting knowledge. But the team expects this and provides lots of training and support. I was surprised just how much time out managers and accountants took to explain things and go through work with me. The culture is very people focused, so you’re treated as an individual and get involved right from the start.
My eight-week summer internship started with an induction in London where I met the other audit interns. I also spent three days learning at Bradenham Manor. But I learned most on-the-job. It really is the best way. I learned things you can’t possibly learn in a classroom, and in only my second week I went on my first client visit.
I’m very proud of how much I developed on my internship. I grew in confidence, developed my skills and even gave a presentation on the vibrant economy at the end of it all. I enjoyed it so much I’ve now joined the graduate programme and act as a buddy to new interns”. Applications for our internship programme our now open, apply here and shape more than just your career. #gtlife #shapemorethan #gtinterns
Awesome party last night for the whole of the @grantthorntonuk Norwich office! 🎉 They’d even gone and got an Instagram frame so we could all live the @gt_trainees life! Awesome entertainment from @magicaleddmagic absolutely perplexing some of our new audit trainees that have just started in September - hope you enjoyed your first GT xmas party guys! Plenty more to come over the years! Cracking turnout from leadership too “leading” the way to the dance floor! #punny 🤦🏼♂️ ... I’m off to #Bradenham next week - can’t wait to see more of my #GTfamily from all over the country! 👌🏻💜 #gtlife #social #party #family #xmas
Not sure how to quite follow Toby’s vlog tbh. But I’ll have a go! You can’t really see my sparkly beard but @lovemoimakeup offered and I couldn’t refuse - it looked awesome in the right light. Just some extra content to sum up today - the leadership team all getting glittered up, being the “office gopher” (as Toby put it) sorting out office filing and doing the drinks round, all to raise money for @nelsons_journey, including an auction and a press-up challenge... really fun day. This was coupled with a some problem solving group activities and discussions around how we can perform even better in future and create an even more family-like culture. We ended up with drinks and pizza and some card games and table tennis. Everyone has worked together to raise a cracking sum of money to give to charity. Really love working with these awesome people 👌🏻💜 #gtlife #culture #leadership #charity #glitter
As part of our efforts to flatten the hierarchy and take a greater interest in what we are all doing, our director in Norwich decided to guest vlog for our social media to share the event we put on today to raise money for our patron charity, @nelsons_journey. Toby doing this has made my day - it just shows the sort of relationships you build here at @grantthorntonuk ... In the process Toby has taught me how to AirDrop! Can we show some love for Toby? 💜 glitter face is by @lovemoimakeup - check her out #guestvlog #olddognewtricks #youngdognewtricks
Had another Aspiring Leaders session today at the Cambridge office - evaluating what makes a great leader and what sort of traits and skills we can be nurturing - e.g. Lt Gen Jay Silveria. Also brainstormed culture and what the ideal workplace looks like to us and what actions could be taken to get there. Really empowering day with loads of useful info to take away 👌🏻💜 #aspiringleaders #gtlife #cambridge #centralregion
Awesome having these enthusiastic @uniofeastanglia students come to our Norwich office to talk to us about life at @grantthorntonuk as well as engage in a session aiming to develop their personal brand and commercial awareness. Such a lovely group to work with and something we look forward to doing more of in the future!👌🏻💜 #gtlife #personalbrand #commercialawareness #training #students
After a crazy week of exams, recruitment events, social events and getting used to being back at work after loads of study, it’s great to finish the week off with a grand social event that brings the long dresses and bow ties out. Hope you’re all having a great weekend. 💜 #gtlife #youngprofessionals #social #networking
Awesome event tonight held by Mills and Reeve Solicitors in Norwich - got to see exhibitions showcasing Russian history and had beef stroganoff as well as making our own Russian themed cocktails with the help of @adnams - thank you for the invite guys! We had a great time! And we look forward to the table tennis tournament between M&R and GT in the near future! 🏓 #gtlife #russian #social #networking #art #cocktails
Awesome opportunity to share the @grantthorntonuk lifestyle with loads of business students at @uniofeastanglia last night! Had some really great discussions about us vs the Big 4 and work life balance. Amazing to see loads of freshers being so proactive in looking for advice and guidance about their future careers. I look forward to developing an even closer relationship with these guys in the future 👌🏻 #gtlife #students #norwich #university

So we decided to organise a table tennis tournament for the whole office. Got an awesome take up and some hidden tekkers popping up outta nowhere! I hear the other offices in central region are getting table tennis setups too... this could be big, guys... 👌🏻 #tabletennis #teambuilding #social #office #gtlife
