Hi, my name is Sophia and I have just started my 12-month Audit Placement at the Reading office. t Grant Thornton they throw you in at the deep end! – I was working at a client’s office in my second week!

I joined Grant Thornton on the 4th of June 2018 as a summer intern in audit for six weeks. My internship began with a day of induction where we met our resource coordinator, but also had talks with people in the office about Quality, Ethics and Excellence.

Before I started my internship at Grant Thornton I was really unsure of what and how to prepare. Or even if there is any preparation necessary. As a result, I decided to share my five top tips for anyone starting next. Prepare for the rollercoaster – catch up on sleep It is fair to say […]
