1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I am an Analyst at Deloitte on the Brightstart programme. As part of this programme I work 4 days a week and go to university 1 day a week. My day-to-day role involves interacting with a wide range of clients, and helping them and my team to implement new systems for these clients. My university degree is BSc Business Technology which is tailored to the programme.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
Yes - I am working toward by BCS Diploma and attended a FRESH innovation programme as part of my induction training. I am also continually developing my skillset in a wide range of products including MS Office products, SAP and other ERP systems. I gain fantastic experience through working in a professional business environment at such a young age and am continually developing personal skills due to this.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I love my programme. Everyone at Deloitte is very approachable if help is needed and there is lots of support behind the Brightstart programme. I have found it a fantastic company to work for and look forward to working here in the future. The apprenticeship exceeded my expectations.
4. How valued do you feel by Deloitte?
Very valued - we receive regular feedback about our work and it makes us feel like we are very valued by the firm. On projects, we are treated as an equal and shown that our work is very valuable. There is both great internal recognition through bonuses and award schemes as well as external recognition.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
Very well structured - the induction training was a great stepping stone before moving into proper project work, however continual development and training opportunities are still offered.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
As much as I need. Training providers are very approachable and keen to help out. They build a professional yet informal relationship with us on the programme which works really well.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
Again, as much as is needed. Managers and mentors regularly ask how we are getting on and if we need help or assistance with anything, and they again are very approachable.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
For a school leaver, the salary is good, and increases each year. Location of the office means all other costs are easily met, so in my opinion the salary meets my costs well.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
Yes, Deloitte has an annual charity partner with many opportunities to help out with. There are many clubs and societies within the firm also, and there are regular newsletters asking for volunteers for community events. The firm has regular social outings also.
9a. Would you recommend Deloitte to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
Coming straight out of school, this programme is perfect. You get your university degree without having to worry about fees as the degree is paid for by the firm, you get 5-7 year experience in a big four firm, you get paid a competitive salary, and you are still able to have the social aspect of university life - what more could you want after school?
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Deloitte? *
Be yourself - Deloitte are looking for friendly, sociable people with a good work ethic. Don't pretend you are something you're not as this will quickly be picked up on. Make the most of your time when you are here - there are so many opportunities for self-development, travel and more. Overall a fantastic scheme.
