1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


The majority of my role involves being on site at a clients. I complete audit work which involves a lot of time having discussions with clients and requesting information.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


The main skills that I have developed are communication and organisation. In addition to this I am currently working towards completing the ACA qualification.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I enjoy my job and the people that I work a lot. There are some issues with the scheme that I think should be addressed but it is encouraging that feedback in relation to the scheme is always appreciated.

4. How valued do you feel by Deloitte?


I feel valued by Deloitte and I think this is mainly down to the team that I work in. Managers are always very positive and the first to give positive feedback and praise in addition to offering areas and options for development.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


On of the major drawbacks with the scheme seems to be organisation around college dates. Quite often it is not very easy to find out well in advance when I will be in college. However, there is always someone to look into this. I think that consideration should be given to shortening the scheme from 5 years to 4.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?


The college I attend is Kaplan and I have never had any issues. Tutors are always available to spend additional time talking you through areas that you do not fully understand.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?


The Exams Manager in my office is very supportive and always makes herself available to discuss any issues or concerns. It is clear that she enjoys involving herself with the development of junior staff.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


As I still live with my parents I have no issues with my salary meeting my costs. Deloitte offer a competitive salary with structured pay rises.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


There are a lot of activities that are organised outside of work and these seem to come around very frequently. These usually consist of team meals or office drinks

9a. Would you recommend Deloitte to a friend? *


9b. Why? *

I think Deloitte is a good place to work as there are clear routes for progression and always someone around that is willing to support your development.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Deloitte? *

I think it's definitely worthwhile to research the different service lines on offer to ensure you make the best decision on where you would be best suited. In addition, I think that being well prepared is one of the most important aspects of succeeding at an interview.
