1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
Assistant associate in the Restructuring department. I work full time dealing with distressed companies and currently working on solvent liquidations and strike offs.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
All my skills have improved & developed: Organisation, prioritising, accountancy, Microsoft Office, report writing, self-review
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
Although it can be a very demanding and hard programme it is equally as rewarding and provides infinite opportunities. I enjoy the programme because it feeds my desire to work in a business environment, gain the necessary qualifications to perform my role and offer the opportunity of a successful future career.
4. How valued do you feel by Deloitte?
I consistently gain feedback, praise and development points so I feel very valued as they take close notice of the work I do and how they can develop me.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
At times it can get quite confused with the college tuition, however the scheme is still in its infancy and there are a number of different service lines with their own requirements so it is very hard to have a one size fits all approach. Overall I think it is structured well compared to the past and seems to continue to be developed in a positive direction for the future.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
In terms of college we do receive a lot of support. In terms of training, this is very specific to each service line, but for me, it has been good so far and I have been provided with essential courses to build my technical knowledge.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
As much as I need. There is a strong culture of communicating issues with others so where there is a problem I feel confident that I can gain the relevant support that I need to overcome it.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
The first year salary is good and exceeds my costs. It provides for a good standard of living. This improves year on year as the salary dramatically improves and this will far exceed my costs.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
There are a never ending number of opportunities outside of work. Everything from sporting teams, to community investment to clubs and gyms - the list is never ending.
9a. Would you recommend Deloitte to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
