At Grant Thornton we're driven by a purpose of building a vibrant economy, based on trust and integrity in markets, dynamic businesses, and communities where businesses and people thrive. We’ve created our own unique culture – one that offers the opportunities of a major organisation in a personal, close-knit environment and that's built around shared enterprise.

Our Financial Services Tax team works across Banking, Insurance, Investment Management, Private Equity and funds markets. You will have the opportunity to work across a varied portfolio of clients taking ownership over these relationships and the delivery of tax technical work.

  • You'll seize opportunities. We want to adapt quickly and wisely to changing conditions to optimise growth for both our clients and ourselves.
  • You'll apply critical reasoning to bring clarity and insight. We do it by asking great questions, listening and drawing on our collective knowledge and experience to really help others grow.

  • you'll have prior experience of working in a corporate tax environment (ideally with Financial Services clients)
  • you'll be comfortable managing client engagements and portfolios

 

The time you spend outside of work helps shape what you can bring to our firm. We value the commitments you may have outside of work and will consider all flexible working applications.
