This is your first assessment with us and helps us assess the kind of skills you'll need in your chosen role.
Our online test was created with Cappfinity (specialists in strengths, potential based recruitment) and combines situational judgement and cognitive (numerical reasoning and critical thinking) testing into an assessment that gives a realistic preview into life here at Grant Thornton.
The test works by judging your typical reactions, feelings or behaviours against a realistic scenario-based set of questions. You will also complete technical questions based on a case study of information, testing your verbal and numerical skills.
At the end of your assessment, you’ll get a personalised report of your strengths and the areas you need to work on. If you have any questions about the assessment, your recruiter will be able to answer them.
Technical skills we look for
