1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
My role is an assistant auditor which involves testing the balances in accounts that our clients put together to ensure they give a true and fair view enabling our firm to give an opinion about them in the audit report.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
Yes I have learnt many new skills, I came in having no knowledge at all and have already passed some of the ACA exams which will enable me to have the ACA qualification under the ICAEW.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoy the programme a lot, the company is very supportive and offers a lot of perks too. It has met my expectations however I didn't realise the length of hours you would be expected to work at such a young age going over the daily working hours and not being paid over time!!
4. How valued do you feel by Deloitte?
Deloitte makes all employees feel valued and offers rewards when you achieve something out of the ordinary. We also go through appraisal meetings and you can be offered bonuses depending on performance.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The programme is very well structured and the teams are put together with good relevance of different skill levels. However, you can be put on many away jobs which isn't suitable around exam times.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I receive a fair amount of support from my training provider but not as much as the exams manager. Our exams manager Katie is really supportive and the go to person.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
Our employers regularly offer support to anyone in need and there are many contacts available from HR and Mentors if you need that extra bit of coaching or are struggling with balancing work and home life.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
Salary package is good considering we have no university debt and have come in with just A-Levels. However it is quite hard to manage the living costs in a large city having come from a small town and we would really benefit from over time when doing weekend stock counts etc.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
Yes there are lots of opportunities outside of work whether that be sport, socials, a quick drink once a month on a Friday and a SEWCASS committee for the exams people.
9a. Would you recommend Deloitte to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
They are a great place to work and are absolutely amazing to have on your CV! A big four company can be stressful but I guess it will all be worth it.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Deloitte? *
Be yourself, be enthusiastic and don't focus too much on what you think they want to hear. Deloitte really encourage a good work life balance and will be pleased to hear you have other hobbies outside of work!
