Return to the firm


We strongly value our Alumni Community and we would welcome the opportunity to talk to our members if they are thinking of returning to Grant Thornton. So much is changing and our firm is growing from strength to strength.


Depending on when you left, there may have been a lot that’s changed. For example, did you know we’ve been awarded the Queen’s Award for Social Mobility the second year in the row?


To help catch you up to speed, we’ve compiled some key changes in the last year:


  • Agile & flexible working – While this may not be necessarily new, we’ve doubled down on our efforts to create a more flexible workforce. We value the commitments you may have outside of work and to demonstrate this, all of our people have an immediate right to request a flexible working arrangement under our flexible working policy. Read more about flexible & agile working policies on our career site.

  • Shared Enterprise 2.0 – You may remember in 2015 Grant Thornton became the first major professional services firm in the UK to commit to becoming a shared enterprise. Our aim was to create a team of people who feel and act like business owners, helping to grow our business and sharing in the reward. With 3 years of Shared Enterprise 1.0 coming to an end, we’ve launched Shared Enterprise 2.0, where we’ve created a reward programme that enables all of our people to share equally in the superior profits we generate together. To learn more, ask your recruiter.

  • New spaces for new faces – We’ve been growing. With now over 4,000 people at the firm, we’re on a mission to create spaces that evoke agility and innovation. Last year we opened up a new office at The Heron Tower in London (home to one of the largest fish tanks in the UK – you must go see it!). We’ve invested on fresh new refurbishments in our Milton Keynes & St. Albans offices.

These are just some of the many new changes. However, don’t take our word for it. Hear from Sean Mitchell, an Alumni who recently rejoined Grant Thornton as a Tax Director in Manchester. We asked him what he believe are the biggest changes he’s seen and told us “Even in my three and a half years away, the business has invested heavily in specialisms where there are good market opportunities. Within the tax practice there is more breadth and depth in areas such as innovations taxes, international tax and private client services. Outside of tax, areas such as Growth 365 and the ‘G’ brand are making a real difference in our entrepreneurial heartland.” Read Sean’s entire story here.

Returning as a director or partner


Grant Thornton’s Alumni is one of our key routes to market, at Director and Partner level, owing to their vast networks outside of Grant Thornton. Grant Thornton has evolved and changed significantly as a firm over the years and we would love to speak to people who might be open to coming back to us with a wealth of new knowledge and experience to play a key part in shaping our future growth.

If you are interested in returning as a director or partner in any region or service line, please get in touch with our Senior Talent Team – Laura Shelton and Darren Kershaw at
