So, what can you expect? From day one, you will be empowered to build a career that is truly your own. We’ll support you every step of the way with access to top-notch training, remarkable leaders and a culture that will inspire you to reach your potential. We want you to learn more, be inspired to expand your horizons and discover exactly what you’re capable of.

A firm that is as unique as you

Here, we do things differently. We’re not just a leader in Audit & Assurance, Tax, Financial Advisory, Private Advisory and Consulting – we have an approach that’s uniquely Grant Thornton. Our culture inspires and enables you to pursue your goals and reach your potential. We’re passionate about our clients’ success – and we care deeply about our work and each other. We’re committed to our people, our clients, and our community.
And our size and success means we can offer remarkable opportunities as you develop your career. With a global network spanning more than 135 countries, we have the reach to take your where you want to go!

Your career, your way

You’ve studied hard, and now you deserve the best start to your career. We understand that no two careers are the same, that’s why we’re committed to developing and supporting graduates like you who are looking to carve out a career that’s uniquely yours. The possibilities are endless – where you take your career and how fast you get there is up to you.

Sound like you?

You’ll come with a variety of strengths and motivations ready to contribute and connect with our clients, our purpose, our values and our culture and want to make an impact right from the start. It’s not just about the academics, but also what else inspires you to care as much as we do.

In addition to studying a relevant qualification, you’ll be curious, aspirational and value the things we value.

  • Empowered– You will not be afraid to challenge convention, to have a voice, and to contribute your views, experiences and passions to help shape our firm’s culture and future.
  • Supported– You’ll prioritise learning in an environment where you are free to try new things and be guided by leaders who remember what it was like to start their careers and foster a culture of clear and constructive feedback.
  • Inspired– You’ll embrace diversity, flexibility and respect the unique strengths and qualities each member of your team will bring. You’ll be energised by collaborating with those around you and lean into challenge and new experiences.

Training and development




In addition to your client work, you’ll also have plenty of opportunity to be involved in initiatives and causes that are meaningful to you.

Passionate about diversity? You might like to join our DAWN committee, who work to celebrate our people’s diversity and foster inclusive work environment. Or perhaps PRISM, our LGBTI+ & Allies Network, is where you can offer your support.

Is volunteering close to your heart? Get involved with the Grant Thornton Foundation or our Social Responsibility Committee to support the broader community.

No matter what’s important to you, there’s an opportunity to make an impact at Grant Thornton.


Career progression


As well as on-the-job learning, you’ll enjoy a program of structured training – starting at orientation to immerse you in our business, vision, purpose and values. Once you’ve joined your team, you’ll continue to be supported by a broad range of blended learning experiences to help you develop your technical and business skills, knowledge and confidence.

Join us as a graduate and we’ll also support you to complete the Chartered Accountant (CA) Program. In addition to covering the costs of your fees and study materials, we’ll also provide you with in-house masterclasses and paid study leave to help you prepare for and sit your exams.


Make a meaningful impact



One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to career progression, so we’ll give you the guidance and support to help you get to where you want to go.
No two careers are the same. Your future at Grant Thornton might see you progress in your team or experience life in a different city on secondment or with a permanent move. Or you may look to broaden your horizons and spend time in a different country with one of our global member firms. Where you take your career and how fast you get there is up to you.

Your leaders

Many of our leaders started here as graduates. They stay because we’re a great place to work – offering career opportunities and diversity, opportunities to learn and grow, and great clients looking for genuine advisers.

Meet Hannah Hiscox – Partner

Hannah grew up on a beef cattle property in Wycarbah, Queensland. In a primary school of 20 children, she was the only girl in her grade. After completing university in Rockhampton, Hannah started as a graduate at Grant Thornton. In December 2018, she became the first female Audit & Assurance Partner in Brisbane.

Hannah’s path to Partner has included two secondments in the UK, two parental leave breaks and company-supported postgraduate qualifications in Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies. “I am lucky to work with some of our most inspiring clients who are making a real difference to society’s most vulnerable. These organisations are mission driven and the funding and reporting channels they navigate are complex. It ultimately means it is that much more important as an industry to share ideas and collaborate on sector issues.”

Meet Murray Bragg – Partner

Murray grew up in Jimboomba, Queensland, an hour south of Brisbane. In 2005, he joined Grant Thornton as a graduate and received flexible working support from the start. “For three years I was fortunate to have two careers — accounting and cricket. I am very grateful for the flexible working arrangements that facilitated my full commitment to training and playing matches with the Queensland Academy of Sport and the Queensland Bulls.”

In December 2018, almost 10 years after winding down his cricket career, Murray was appointed Audit & Assurance Partner in Brisbane. Though he has a fairly broad client base, he has always been passionate about transport and infrastructure. “I believe that it is important to understand the impacts that a changing regulatory environment has on my clients. I’m passionate about working with them to achieve practical and commercial outcomes.”


Forage – Audit Virtual Experience

Learn your way around financial statements and what it takes to plan, prepare and sign off a company audit! In collaboration with Forage, we’ve launched a virtual internship to provide students an experiential preview of what they can expect from a career with Grant Thornton. Through the program, you will learn how to conduct an audit and why it is so important to keep organisations honest. It is also a great opportunity for you to get a sense of what it’s like to work in an accounting firm, and the type of work we support our clients with.
