Black talent insight event

At Grant Thornton, we value different perspectives. That’s about more than ensuring we have a diverse workforce; its about creating an environment where everyone feels they belong, and are able to contribute. Not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because we’re all at our best when we’re able to be ourselves. Our aim is to build a workplace which is representative of the clients we work with and the communities we live in. 

We know that black talent is currently underrepresented in our organisation, and sector. We want to change that. This means attracting and coaching black students through our recruitment process and creating a fully inclusive environment where black talent can flourish. Research, and our own analysis, has shown that candidates from under-represented groups have less access to coaching, careers advice and mentors. This shouldn't be the case. We want to make sure everyone has equal access to careers guidance and assessment support regardless of background.

We are hosting a virtual event for black students to help provide insight and guidance on the following areas:

  • An insight into the Accountancy industry and the opportunities available
  • A chance to meet some of our senior black leaders – we want to inspire you with our stories, and yours
  • An opportunity to debate topics and matters that are important to you with associates and leaders within our firm
  • Guidance on applying for apprenticeship, undergraduate or graduate programmes – we’ll provide lots of hints and tips to help you succeed

Join us online on 26 October, 2:30pm - 3:30pm to be part of the conversation. Register to attend.
