Job Information

Grant Thornton LLP Seasonal Audit Senior Associate in New York, New York

Position Summary

Van-life traveler + on-the-go accountant

Busy parent + busier auditor

Avid gardener + growth-minded CPA

Many combinations go against expectations for the type of career you can have in professional services. We’re here to meet and then go beyond those expectations, with the seasonal audit senior associate role that lets you pursue passions instead of promotions.

Our seasonal audit senior associates know what they are looking for in an accounting career: flexibility. These senior associates are brought in during the firm’s busy seasons, or other short-term periods driven by business need, to uphold standards, run client engagements and collaborate closely with staff across all parts of the engagement, and for multiple clients.

Here, you’re also more than “seasonal” – you’re part of the team. Beyond flexibility, we offer an experience that is more supportive and inclusive, where you will like the people and clients you’re working with and value the relationships you’re able to develop.
