Richard Gillan, Managing Partner at Grant Thornton
A business advisory firm in Belfast is creating 33 new jobs after a busy 2015.
Grant Thornton is on the lookout for new candidates to fill the new positions across its Tax, Audit, and Restructuring and Corporate Finance teams, as well as in a new Business Risk Services department and an Audit and Advisory team focusing on international assignments.
It wants hires from across the spectrum, from experienced hires to graduates and school leavers, to help its ambitious target of trebling revenues within the next five years.
That follows a busy 2015 for the firm when it saw revenue jump 45% on the previous year.
“That upward trend has continued into 2016, and the outlook is very positive. We expect to treble our revenues within the next five years,” Richard Gillan, Managing Partner at Grant Thornton (NI) LLP said. “We are experiencing significant growth across all existing service lines, and the introduction of a Business Risk Services department and a Global Mobility team are exciting developments.”
And he said the quality of the hires is key to the company’s success.
“Our focus is on bringing in the right people. The only ‘product’ we have to sell are the skills and expertise of our team. We want people who can add to, and thrive within, the entrepreneurial environment that we have here.
