People & Culture Consultant

Saint John, NB | Fredericton, NB

Who we are

You know those big cities that still feel like small towns? Where everyone's friendly and helps each other out? That's like Grant Thornton. Except here we're all professionals and there isn't a mayor or a general store. What we're trying to say is that we're a very different kind of professional services firm where culture is at the heart of who we are and what we do. We employ about 2000 people across Canada, and we truly care about helping our clients, colleagues, and communities thrive. That's what's most important to us. We're building a special organization that's purpose driven and as we grow we always want to remember what your favourite milkshake flavour is (ours is grape, just so you know).

We currently have a part time (3 days a week) opportunity awaiting an inspirational and motivated People and Culture Consultant. As part of our People and Culture team in New Brunswick, you will be integral to the attraction, engagement and development of our colleagues at all levels. If you are passionate about the field of human resources and have an ability to engage those around you to grow an award-winning, high performance organization, this is your opportunity.

As a People and Culture Consultant, you will:

  • Actively support the implementation of our People and Culture strategy including talent attraction, engagement and development.
  • Collaborate with our Talent Attraction team to ensure a seamless candidate experience throughout all recruitment.
  • Engage our People Managers to inspire and develop talent as well as grow their own coaching and management skills.
  • Provide extraordinary internal client service for cyclical or event-based processes and projects, including growth plan review, compensation, or exiting.
  • Provide support to the business unit on the firm's talent management and HRIS system, WorkDay, including reporting.
  • Support workforce, succession and growth planning through proactive analysis and provide recommendations to leaders.
  • Collaborate with our Inclusiveness Partner and Committee to achieve the Firm's Leading Inclusively mission.
  • Occasional travel to our 8 locations in NB for attraction, engagement, and development opportunities.
