Senior Accountant, Assurance [Audit]

Who we are

You know those big cities that still feel like small towns? Where everyone’s friendly and helps each other out? That’s like Grant Thornton. Except here we’re all professionals and there isn’t a mayor or a general store. What we’re trying to say is that we’re a very different kind of professional services firm where culture is at the heart of who we are and what we do.  We employ about 2000 people across Canada, and we truly care about helping our clients, colleagues, and communities thrive.  That’s what’s most important to us. We’re building a special organization that’s purpose driven and as we grow we always want to remember what your favourite milkshake flavour is (ours is grape, just so you know).


As a Senior Accountant, Assurance [Audit] some of your responsibilities will include:

•    Providing solutions to our clients on current business and financial conditions

•    Planning, preparation and execution of financial statement audits

•    Working with clients under varying reporting frameworks across different industries and sectors

•    Working closely with clients and providing exceptional client service

•    Supervising and training of junior accounting employees

•    Analysis and initial review of financial statements and financial statement notes 

Be Grant Thornton

If you’re a bit like us, you’re driven to connect with how others are feeling and thinking. Here we walk in others shoes before taking action. Just imagine being part of a team that puts we before me, where flexibility is a mindset, and where you trust your colleagues have your back. At Grant Thornton, you’ll work with inspiring leaders who support your development, both personally and professionally. This is a place where your insatiable curiosity enables you to think, see and hear from a variety of perspectives, a place where every day is different and having the courage to grow is part of who you are. And when all this comes together, well that’s when the magic happens. 


Think you’ve got what it takes to be a Senior Accountant? Like the colour purple? Great. Here's a few more boxes we’re also hoping you can tick:

• Previous experience in audit and assurance within public practice

• Strong technical expertise in audit and accounting

• Minimum of two years of experience in public accounting

• Strong commitment to excellence and attention to detail

• Excellent written and verbal communication skills

At Grant Thornton we’re focused on making a difference in the lives of our clients, our colleagues and our communities. That’s our purpose. Or, as we like to say, living our purple.
