I joined the Audit and Assurance team in Belfast in December 2021 not knowing what to expect, however over the past year I have been pleasantly surprised of the diverse experiences and rewarding nature of the job.
I have worked with a range of clients operating in various industries such as Construction, Tech, Pharma and Food gaining valuable experience and knowledge of these industries. Often as part of the audit team, I would visit clients out on site offering a welcome change from going into the office every day. Alongside my day-to-day job, I was able to complete my CAP 2 accounting exams with the help of the additional classes and support provided by Grant Thornton.
Looking beyond the professional side of the job I have enjoyed the social aspect of the job. Joining the company alongside likeminded people working together through the challenge of studying for professional exams whilst working has formed strong friendships. Social events run by the company such as the Christmas party and the Audit team building day to name a few have really added to the great culture of the office.
