Grant Thornton UK LLP
Grant Thornton UK LLP is part of one of the world's leading organisations of independent advisory, tax and audit firms. We help dynamic organisations unlock their potential for growth by providing meaningful, forward looking advice.
Our underlying purpose is to build a vibrant economy, based on trust and integrity in markets, dynamic businesses, and communities where businesses and people thrive. We work with banks, regulators and government to rebuild trust through corporate renewal reviews, advice on corporate governance, and remediation in financial services. We work with dynamic organisations to help them grow. And we work with the public sector to build a business environment that supports growth, including national and local public services.
In the UK, we are led by more than 180 partners and employ 4,500 of the profession's brightest minds. We provide assurance, tax and specialist advisory services to over 40,000 privately held businesses, public interest entities and individuals nationwide.
Our CLEARR (Collaboration, Leadership, Excellence, Agility, Respect and Responsibility) values underpin our culture and how we do business – they are embedded throughout our business and set the parameters of how we expect people to behave with their colleagues, clients and the world at large.
In May 2015, 99% of our 185 partners overwhelmingly voted for Grant Thornton to become the first major accountancy firm to be ran by all of its people. Building on our culture, which ensures each person’s views are valued, the shared enterprise model will mean Grant Thornton’s 4,500 people in the UK are empowered to make agile decisions to the benefit of our clients. Shared responsibility means employee representatives will sit on the powerful oversight board, while shared rewards will open up profits to all of Grant Thornton's people.
