Grant Thornton Future Leaders Internship

The Future Leaders Internship Programme in Government & Infrastucture Advisory (GIA), Grant Thornton

Do you see yourself as a business innovator, major project leader or entrepreneur? If so, the GIA Future Leaders Internship Programme is tailor-made for you. This is no run-of-the mill internship designed to merely give a flavour of the workplace, the GIA programme provides real challenges and the opportunity for rapid development. Working for six months within our GIA team in London, you will learn about business growth and be fast-tracked to work directly with real clients on a number of exciting ‘live’ projects in both the public and private sector.

The Grant Thornton Future Leaders programme is an exciting internship opportunity, designed to provide ambitious individuals with a unique, hands-on experience that serves as a gateway to future career progression. The programme is a challenging, tailored six-month development pathway which provides insight into Grant Thornton’s unique position at the heart of the growth agenda.

At Grant Thornton, innovation and ambition is second-nature. We provide business and financial advice to clients that demand world-leading solutions. We work with over 40,000 businesses in the UK alone and it’s not just what we do, it’s the way we do it that sets us apart. Getting to the core of client needs and meeting them with clarity and insight is at the heart of our business.

Who we’re looking for
You may be in the final year of your undergraduate studies, doing your Master’s degree or graduated but taken time out to explore the world or rethink your career. You may have already started to build your own business. What you will certainly be is an ambitious, all-rounder who can thrive in a professional and fast-paced environment. The GIA six-month internship could be the perfect fast-track to high-achievement and a rewarding career.

The opportunity
GIA is offering 20 six-month internships designed to develop brilliant business leaders. Over the course of the internship, you will develop expertise in key areas including commercial analytics, project operations and business development. It will be fast-paced, with plenty of variety. You’ll be immersed in a range of different areas of our business and get to try your hand at a number of things before deciding what suits you best. You’ll be able to shape your own experience and work directly on client assignments. These will be with major areas of government such as UKTI and BIS, as well as directly with a diverse mix of SMEs and large mid-market businesses.

In addition to bespoke training, we’ll pair you up with a buddy and a mentor to support your learning and help drive your personal goals. We look forward to working with you and are confident that a number of high-calibre interns will become permanent members of our GIA team.

There will be two intakes for the Future Leaders Internship Programme – the first starting 6 July 2015; the second 18 January 2016.
