Grant Thornton to hire 400 new people over next two years

Grant Thornton, Ireland’s fastest growing financial services firm, today announced plans to hire 400 new people over the next two years. The roles will be predominantly based at Grant Thornton’s head office in Dublin. Of the 400 new hires, half will be experienced candidates from industry and practice.

New graduates will account for the remaining 200 roles. Grant Thornton’s latest graduate recruitment campaign has already resulted in a 50% increase year-on-year in applicants looking to secure a training contract with the firm for 2019. The firm’s community ethos, direct access to partners, buddy system and diversity programmes are among the non-financial hallmarks of Grant Thornton for new recruits.

Managing Partner of Grant Thornton, Mick McAteer, said:  

The role of accountants is evolving, as is the regulatory, political and legal landscape, and the needs of our clients within that. We are trusted advisors to a growing Irish and international client base on just about every facet of their business today, across consulting and advisory services. With new growth, comes further diversification and the need for exceptional people from a range of backgrounds to ensure Grant Thornton is primed to make the most of the opportunities ahead.

Grant Thornton has also relocated to a custom-built new headquarters on City Quay.
