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 2500 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 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 talent development process of the practice by conducting timely reviews, providing ongoing confidence building 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.
