A remarkable career without compromise starts here

Grad Conference

At Grant Thornton, we see the world a little differently – not for how things are, but for how they could be. And when it comes to people, we see you differently too. Not as resources to be used up, but as resourceful humans – with near limitless potential to unlock and harness.

Every day we reach for remarkable – in the opportunities we unlock, the experience we share and the results we deliver. But unleashing the remarkable in each of us takes CARE, that connects our passion with the purpose we live by. It’s why we go beyond in the way we care for our people, clients and communities, and support them to thrive, always.

Graduate and Vacationer Programs with a difference

Life's too short for a cookie-cutter career that treats you like another cog in the machine. So from the get-go, when you join us, you'll quickly discover that our approach to our Graduate and Vacation programs will challenge your curiosity and fuel your passion and ambition, empowering you to build a one-of-a-kind career path.

More than that, as leaders in accounting, tax and advisory services, we're committed to setting you up for success through our remarkable support network within a globally integrated firm filled with possibilities. With six offices across Australia and partner firms in more than 135 countries, wherever you want to go, we can take you there.

What makes you different makes all the difference

No two careers are the same. Beyond your university degree, academics and on-campus experiences, we recognise that who you are, together with your personal experiences, are the key to how we harness your potential.

Enjoy remarkable support

Starting at orientation, you'll get to know our business, vision, purpose and values and join a passionate, collaborative team positioned to support your success. Whether helping you experiment, learn and grow from your experiences or providing regular opportunities for feedback, we're there for you — all within a safe and inclusive environment.

We'll also launch you into a structured program that brings a dynamic mix of backgrounds, perspectives and ways of thinking that support crucial on-the-job training experiences and opportunities.

You'll work collaboratively with a leadership team and managers that respect your strengths, allow you to challenge convention, have a voice, and contribute your views, experiences and passions. And along the way, you’ll get space to develop your technical and business skills while shaping your knowledge and confidence through blended learning experiences.

In addition, when you pursue your Chartered Accountant (CA) program, we'll cover your fees and study materials, support you with in-house masterclasses and provide paid study leave to help you prepare for and sit your exams. It's our way of ensuring you're supported as you hit those big goals and stay motivated while pursuing a remarkable career.

Transform your aspirations into action

The best way to reach for remarkable is to take action. With us, you'll be ready to hit the ground running and inspired to discover a challenging and rewarding world of work around every corner. Moreover, we'll set out to expose you to exciting clients, projects and industries early and often to help you build your skills and drive your career journey.

Gain remarkable exposure

Career milestones can happen every day. Where you go and how you fast-track your journey is up to you. Through our programs, you'll work alongside leading Partners and specialists across a broad range of industries and experiences.

Plus, get regular client exposure that provides you with exciting future opportunities to progress internally quickly within our organisation.

After building a solid foundation with us, your future at Grant Thornton may even see you broaden your horizons in a foreign country with one of our international member firms. After all, we do have the reach to take you where you want to go.

Whatever helps you succeed, we put resources at your fingertips with the ongoing support you need to develop and grow as you go. And it won't just be the confidence you'll build, but also exceptional, supportive relationships with colleagues and managers in a career path done your way.


Work where your input has the greatest impact

We’re committed to driving a positive impact for our clients, but we’re also invested in making sure the impact you make is seen, felt and celebrated.

Remarkable impact

Our business success goes beyond profitability, growth and recognition. We’ve also built our business for everyone to make an impact – socially, environmentally and sustainably.

Beyond your client work, we empower you to discover what you're truly capable of. With the autonomy to work flexibly, challenge traditions and seek out new solutions, you can make a meaningful difference in a way that feels personal to you.

Whether fostering an inclusive work environment, being an ally for LGBTI+ communities or volunteering for initiatives that support the broader community, we invite you to help make a world of difference.
