One that delivers the expertise they need in a way that goes beyond. Personal, proactive, and agile. That's Grant Thornton.



Our GT Private team specialises in looking after the tax affairs of entrepreneurial and high net worth individuals, their families, and their businesses to provide a bespoke service advising on a variety of tax planning matters such as business structuring, asset disposals, potential inheritance tax liabilities and estate planning.

Ideally you will be CTA qualified so that you have the technical expertise and insight to advise our clients.

  • Receive challenging, on-the-ground experience in a fully advisory role, meeting clients, and helping them to operate in a tax-efficient manner
  • Carry out bespoke technical research for a range of complex advisory projects
  • Produce high quality tax reports to advise clients and liaise with HM Revenue & Customs on their behalf
  • Have secondment opportunities and will build internal networks
  • Keep up to date with and monitor developments in UK and International tax regulation

Knowing you're right for us

Joining us as an Assistant Manager in South Private, the minimum criteria you'll need is a relevant professional qualification (ATT / CTA / ACA / ACCA or equivalent), and to be confident interacting with clients.

It would be great if you also had some of the following skills, but don't worry if you don't tick every box, we'll help you develop along the way:
  • UK Private Client tax and / or Corporate Tax Advisory experience (including shareholder tax issues, company restructuring, profit extraction etc).
  • Ability to research a range of topics to feed into complex advisory projects
  • Experience working with owner managed businesses (including both tax advisory and compliance matters)
  • An eagerness to develop deep knowledge of the firm's products, services and capabilities

Beyond the job

Life is more than work. The things you do, and the people you're with outside of work matter, that's why we're happy to look at flexible working options for all our roles, and we'll always do our best to keep your work and life in balance.

The impact you can make here will go far beyond your day job.
