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.
As a Accountant, Privately Held Business your responsibilities will include:
  • Working with clients and providing exceptional client service
  • Providing solutions to our clients on current business and financial issues
  • Planning, preparation and execution of financial statements for review engagements and compilations with appropriate note disclosures
  • Planning and preparation of working paper files for review engagements and compilations
  • Preparation and filing of personal and corporate tax returns
    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 flexAbility is a mindset, and where you trust your colleagues to 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 Accountant? Like the colour purple? Great. Here's a few more boxes we're also hoping you can tick:
  • Possession of a University Degree or Diploma with a concentration in Accounting
  • A minimum of 2-4 yearss of experience in public practice, in accounting and for small to medium sized owner managed businesses
  • Relevant professional experience or equivalent combination of education and experience
  • Strong commitment to excellence and attention to detail
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Proven problem solver with solid analytical skills
  • Strong technical experience in accounting and tax
  • Strong organizational skills and attention to detail
  • Experience with Caseware, Taxprep and QuickBooks is an asset
  • Strong working knowledge of MS Office suite and ability to grasp new technology tools
  • Ability to execute on deliverables in a deadline driven environment
    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.
