In Grant Thornton: Senior Assurance Specialist

Share with us an interesting fact about yourself.

When I was at the university, I was not very good at accounting, so I never thought that I would become an auditor. However, when I talk about this, no one believes me.

How would you describe the culture and people at Grant Thornton?

The culture at GT is somewhat different from the culture of other audit firms in the market. The company welcomes and encourages friendliness, collective support, and assistance.

What lessons have you learned while working with the company?

I realized that audit is teamwork that is based on trust. If there is no trust, then the work will not work. And yet, that there are no overwhelming projects, and everything tends to end.

Tell us an interesting story that happened to you while working at Grant Thornton?

Once we sat with the audit team and thought that any cycle of life can be represented as a balance between assets, liabilities, and capital. It was funny to realize that balance is needed not only in financial reporting but also in any life situation.

How does Grant Thornton help you achieve your career goals, such as obtaining qualifications and certifications?

GT strongly supports the aspirations of employees in obtaining professional qualifications by reimbursing the costs of preparation for passing not only the exams themselves but also training, which is important. Also, the entire GT team is sincerely happy for the achievements of their employees.

What makes Grant Thornton a great place to work?

Friendly team, interesting projects, mutual help, and support.

What advice would you give to a potential candidate who wants to join Grant Thornton?

GT appreciates people who do not stop growing, not only professionally, but also personally. Therefore, my advice is to try not to be satisfied with what has already been achieved and always think that the impossible is not enough.
