Grant Thornton School Leaver 2023 entry x

Hi guys, I’m in year 12 going into year 13. I recently applied to Grant Thornton’s Financial Tax Apprenticeship and somehow made it past the strengths assessment to the digital interview. I was wondering if any has any tips for this stage. I’m assuming I’ll get some competency questions?

Also if anyone else is applying to Grant Thornton or applied last year maybe we can talk on this thread : )

Update: I’ve received an offer for Audit

Hi i applied to a corporate tax apprenticeship and also made it to the digital interview stage. from what i have read its mainly skills and strengths based, and there is a case study at the end. you can go onto their website and look at the employability hub, they have an hour long web seminar on the assessment stage :smile:

when did you recieve an invitation for the digital interview... was it staight after or did it take a couple of days? And also how did the interview go?

It’s after the strengths assessment, so if you pass that it was like 2 days later. Then the recruiter calls you. And sends you the link for the interview.
I withdrew my application and didn’t do the interview but there’s 4 questions good luck

Coming from someone who got a 5 at gcse and does straight Essay based subjects, it wasn’t hard. The only thing that makes it hard is the stupid trick questions. You’ll be fine. I didn’t do my interview tho because I wasn’t feeling it. Don’t think accountancy is for me.

It makes sense. Did you practice before hand or just went straight on and took it on your chest> Thank you for responding btw.

I only did practise on situational judgement not maths because they’re so unpredictable

Hi, how was the strength assessment, especially the analysis bit ? Was it hard or not?

Read through the thread I’ve already answered this. It’s not hard just some questions that will throw you off due to wording
