Let’s talk about the job

If you enjoy working on a wide-reaching range of projects that will help businesses and communities flourish, you’ll fit right in. Here are some things you can expect from this Ethics Assistant Manager role.

  • Making quality second nature.  This means doing what’s right even when no one’s looking. The work that you will do has a major impact on our clients and our firm. We pride ourselves on the high-level standards we have for the work that we do. 

  • Own your own work.  Within this role, you’ll undertake general monitoring including that required by the ethical standards, you’ll complete thematic reviews on specific ethical subject matters and perform quality review of audit files for ethical issues. You’ll also draft responses to technical queries and consultations on a range of ethics and related topics, you’ll contribute to the writing of intranet pages and technical guidance on ethics related matters and support our team during external regulator quality monitoring reviews.  

  • Be a part of a team. Our Ethics Function is part of the Ethics team and plays a crucial role in shaping how Grant Thornton conducts its professional practices. Working closely with the regulators, the team ensures that the firm remains compliant with industry regulations and continues to uphold its professional integrity.

  • Take responsibility. As an Assistant Manager in this team you’ll support the wider team in delivering against targets and expectations.

  • Build your brand.  Give the importance of ethics and independence and increased regulatory scope and focus, this role offers exciting opportunities for the right person to expand their knowledge

The minimum criteria

You’ll have a compliance risk, audit, ethics or independence background or previous experience in a similar role

You’ll have a good understanding of the ethical standards and how to interpret and apply these principles

Skills to set you apart

Here are a few more skills we are looking for. Don’t worry if you don’t tick every box. It’s important for us to support you in your role and help you to develop along the way.

You’ll have previous experience of working in a professional’s services firm or similar

You’ll have excellent organisation and analytical skills with the ability to prioritise effectively

You’ll have excellent IT skills (MS Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Word)

You’ll be a resilient individual who enjoys being part of a diverse team

You’ll be a good communicator to varied audiences

Do you care about the same things we do?

We have six values we work by. When we meet, we’ll want you to show us how they’re important to you, too.

Collaboration: We work together, share ideas and always make time to help each other out.

Leadership: Everyone has the chance to lead their own projects.

Excellence: Quality is central to our purpose. We love what we do, and it shows. We sweat the details. We see things through, no matter how tricky.

Agility: The world moves quickly. To keep up, we stay flexible – changing approaches, changing projects, working offline, online, together and alone to get things done.

Respect: A given, of course: we value each other and our clients. We listen, we understand, we care.

Responsibility: The decisions we make and advice we give affects people’s lives and livelihoods. We take that seriously and always do well by doing what’s right.

Share ideas and profits

Unlike most firms, we’re also a shared enterprise. So when the firm does well, everyone does well by taking home a share of the profits. Of course, to get those profits, we need to share ideas and share responsibility for our work, too.

Bring your whole self

Now you’ve seen our values, it shouldn’t be a surprise that we’re creating a respectful, open, diverse place to work. Building an inclusive culture, where we value difference and respect our colleagues, is not just the right thing to do, it helps our people to perform at the best of their ability and realise their potential.

“We are committed to making sure that the opportunities within our firm are equally accessible for everyone – regardless of background or gender.” Dave Dunckley, CEO

There’s more to life than work

Families, children, sports, night classes…the things you do and the people you’re with outside work matter. They can inspire, motivate and energise you. Inside the office and out. So if you’d like to work flexibly, let us know. We’re happy to look at flexible working options for all our roles, and we’ll always do our best to keep your work and life in balance.
