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. 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.
This is a unique opportunity for an experienced, well rounded, Manager to join our dynamic Assurance team. Your role as a key member of our team will be involved in client service, team leadership, and managing. You will demonstrate the ability of influencing and empowering others to achieve their professional goals and contribute to a motivating team environment. In this role you will be acting as a "business advisor" to our clients. This gives you the opportunity to make a difference by helping our clients solve business problems and achieve their business goals.
You will be a part of the decision making process and participate in the development of business strategies. You will be a valued subject matter expert for your clients and be supported by our senior practitioners to help achieve your professional development goals.
As a Manager, your responsibilities will include:
  • Leading and executing client engagements, while providing exceptional client service to a wide variety of business sectors
  • Planning and leading teams, ensuring that client expectations are clearly communicated
  • Proactive problem solving with the team and the client
  • Being a leader in the firm by actively contributing to the development and execution of the office business plan
  • Contributing to new business development by understanding Grant Thornton and its service lines, as well as utilizing your credibility with clients
  • Participating in the coaching and performance management process of the practice by conducting timely performance reviews, providing ongoing feedback and training to develop junior team members
    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 Manager, Assurance? Like the colour purple? Great. Here's a few more boxes we're also hoping you can tick:
  • Completed CPA designation, with a minimum of 4 - 5 years of accounting experience
  • Experience working with owner managed clients within a public practice scope
  • A team player able to rally resources and work with others to meet the needs and exceed the expectations of the client
