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.
As a 1 month temporary Tax Return Assistant some of your responsibilities will include:
  • Provide administrative support to the accounting team during tax season
  • Liaise with other members of the administrative team to provide complete support to the group
  • Managing the scanning or assembling processes of a large number of client files
  • Updating client information and tracking the status of files using Tax Prep software
  • Other duties to be discussed at interview
    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.
    Think you've got what it takes to be a Temporary Tax Return Assistant? Like the colour purple? Great. Here's a few more boxes we're also hoping you can tick:
  • Experience in a professional office environment
  • Excellent organizational skills with strong attention to detail
  • Ability to handle a high volume of work within prescribed deadlines
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong Microsoft Office and Adobe skills
  • Available for 40-44 hour work weeks (Monday to Friday), on a temporary basis until early May 2019
  • Available to work additional hours (evenings and weekends, as needed)
    At Grant Thornton we're focused on making a difference in the lives of our clients, our colleagues and our communities. That's our purpose. Or, as we like to say, living our purple.
