Agile Talent Community

As the world is evolving, the way we work has changed with it. Now more than ever the need to be agile, open and collaborative is essential to business success. Traditional, full time roles are no longer always the right fit for everyone. We need more ways to work together.

The Agile Talent Community is a network of contract professionals given the opportunity to work with valued clients on a project-by-project basis and provided a range of support and development opportunities offered by Grant Thornton. You’ll get the freedom to work in a way that suits you, choosing the projects you take on, allowing you the independence to manage your time effectively. The Agile Talent Community will reflect the same values that sit at the heart of Grant Thornton: a commitment to diversity and inclusion, a client centric, quality driven ethos and a fundamental care for our people and doing what’s right, ahead of what’s easy.

What's in it for you?

  • The Agile Talent Community will reflect the same values that sit at the heart of Grant Thornton: a commitment to diversity and inclusion, a client centric, quality driven ethos and a fundamental care for our people and doing what’s right, ahead of what’s easy.
  • It will be a place where your experience, background and perspective matter, both to us and to our clients. We’re not just looking for people to work, we’re looking for people to shape the way we work, now and in the future.
  • We believe our success is intrinsically linked to yours and will provide necessary training and support whether you’re on a project or not.
  • From helping you navigate incoming regulation for freelancers to providing dedicated points of contact and offering training we will always be there to support, advise and help you develop.
  • A project focus lets you take on work as and when you want. The projects themselves will generally be full time, but this control allows you to create room around them for other priorities
  • Equally, we know you will need scope to pursue other interests whether personal or professional. The Agile Talent Community provides you that space without restriction.
  • This will provide access to a wide range of short and mid-term projects. Projects that will introduce you to valued client relationships and help you build your personal profile as you earn.
  • The project based nature of the work means you will see periods of high and low demand, but at all times it will be a space to build connections and network with other members of the community.
