Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

As I’m writing this blog, myself and the rest of the audit team in Shrewsbury are currently making the most of #PorkBapFridays, after a hard week’s work on my third client of this year’s Local Government season.

And eight weeks before that, I was fumbling with my pass trying to get into the office on my first day as a summer intern.

Guest Blog: Wacky Wednesdays


Hi all! I’m Rachel and I’ve recently joined Grant Thornton as a placement student. I’ll be here for the next year in between my second and third year at Sussex university where I study Accounting and Finance.

Guest Post: Shared Enterprise Isn’t Just Marshmallows and Spaghetti

Hi, my name is Eloise and I am doing my internship in the audit department at the Leicester office. Leicester is one of the smaller offices, so I thought that, in addition to doing the shared enterprise survey between the offices, it would be fun to organise a more hands-on activity which would relate to shared enterprise- Marshmallows and Spaghetti was born!
