Senior Associate, Business Risk Services (IT)

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).

As a Senior Associate, some of your responsibilities will include:

  • Execute assigned client engagements from start to completion, which includes the overall planning, execution, direction and completion of information systems audit, IT consulting, cybersecurity, enterprise risk management and compliance projects, and managing the engagements to budget
  • Apply current knowledge of IT trends, systems and processes to identify security and risk management issues and opportunities for improvement
  • Work closely with clients, and provide exceptional client service
  • Identify and develop new opportunities for additional advisory services

Be Grant Thornton

If you're a bit like us, you're driven to connect with how others are feeling and thinking. Here we walk in others shoes before taking action. Just imagine being part of a team that puts we before me, where flexibility is a mindset, and where you trust your colleagues have your back. At Grant Thornton, you'll work with inspiring leaders who support your development, both personally and professionally. This is a place where your insatiable curiosity enables you to think, see and hear from a variety of perspectives, a place where every day is different and having the courage to grow is part of who you are. And when all this comes together, well that's when the magic happens.

  • 1-2 years of relevant IT experience
