Grant Thornton Select – Interim Finance Professionals

We’re looking for qualified accountants to join Grant Thornton Select, our community of professional finance contractors who provide interim and accounting project services for us and our clients.

Select community members work for Grant Thornton’s Special Projects team undertaking varied interim accounting assignments and projects within the finance teams of a diverse range of organisations from all commercial industry sectors.

We welcome Grant Thornton alumni back into the firm and have worked with several alumni on interim and project-based industry positions.

Who we are

Special Projects is a fully managed service that provides on-demand, expert support to our clients’ finance teams.  Businesses are changing the way they operate, especially when it comes to their finance teams. Many organisations don’t have the skills in-house to meet demands at peak-times like year-end, or when an urgent request comes in, and recruiting suitable talent at short notice often just isn’t possible. Special Projects provide expert support to finance teams, on demand. This includes accountancy, advisory and project management support to in-house finance teams on an ad-hoc basis across a wide-range of industries. We have a flexible team and great quality people who our clients love to work with.

What you will be doing

Projects typically involve working as part of a client team on a fixed-term basis and are very varied. We’re currently looking for new members who can undertake the following:

  • Interim financial support and troubleshooting
  • Preparing year-end audit packs
  • Preparing statutory accounts
  • Preparing management accounts packs and reports
  • Resolving discrepancies with accounting records
  • Financial reporting (including new standards such as IFRS 15 or 16)
  • Reviewing finance function performance and best practice
  • Providing training to finance teams where appropriate
  • Ad-hoc accounting or finance function projects, often as part of larger teams

What we are looking for

Our community members are:

  • Grant Thornton alumni who come back in interim and project-based industry positions
  • Results-driven Qualified accountants (e.g. ACCA, ACA)
  • Practical, hands-on accounting experience gained from both practice and industry.
  • Client-focused professional finance contractors and freelancers
  • Experience at driving projects through to successful completion
  • Operate to the highest standards
  • Any career stage from newly qualified to financial controller

Why you should join us

  • Opportunity to work on interim and project-based industry positions whilst retaining the support of a practice firm
  • Work on varied and challenging projects across a range of industries and job roles
  • Flexibility to work on projects when you are available
  • Network with an established community of highly experienced contractors
  • Access technical support and advice from Grant Thornton when working for us
  • Regular networking events including CPD accredited Technical Updates
  • Not an exclusive agreement – you can work on other projects as well as ours.
