Get your career off to a flying start

Your career begins well before you finish your degree. Many employers specifically look for relevant work experience when they recruit university graduates. So, while you’re studying, it can be valuable to gain some practical experience in a variety of fields.

At Grant Thornton, we give you the opportunity to kick start your career with our Vacation Experience Program. The program runs for four to six weeks, and offers opportunities across all of our service lines, like business advisory, audit, tax and private advisory. You’ll need to be in your penultimate year at university to be eligible for the program.

Get busy with real work

As part of the program, you’ll be given actual tasks as part of ongoing projects. You’ll have regular contact with partners and clients, and you’ll be given a buddy to ensure you’re well supported during the program. We’ll also give you training opportunities and meaningful feedback so you can build your skills and knowledge.

Build your personal and professional networks

In our program, you’ll be welcomed into Grant Thornton. You’ll be invited to professional and social events and given great opportunities to meet people and grow your networks – including among other people on the vacation program.

Get a foot in the door

At Grant Thornton, you’ll gain valuable experience that puts you a step ahead. You’ll be putting your studies into practice and seeing how things work in the real world, as well as seeing what the CA process is like. And at the conclusion of the vacation program, you may be offered a position in our graduate program for when you’ve completed your degree.

If you value what we value, let us help you stand out from the crowd. Vacationer experience positions will open in February 2017. Check out the application process page so you are ready to apply next year – don’t forget to create an account so you can receive job alerts
