Six easy steps to starting your career at Grant Thornton


Application updates

We are fortunate enough to receive a large volume of applications for our graduate and vacation opportunities each year. We want to ensure every application is assessed individually and fairly so for this reason, assessing each application takes time. We ask for your patience and understanding throughout the application process.

You will always hear back from us regarding the outcome of your application – so if you have not been contacted yet, that means your application is still being considered, and you will hear from our team as soon as possible.

Applications for each office and service line are reviewed at different stages, however, we aim to minimise the wait time for candidates wherever possible. We will keep you updated at each stage of the recruitment process.

If you have submitted an application, please ensure you regularly monitor your email and check your junk/spam mail settings as further updates regarding your application will be delivered via email.



To be eligible for our Graduate roles or our Vacation Programs, you’ll need to meet the following requirements:

For graduate opportunities:

You must be:

For vacation students:

You must be:
