1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I get to work with a wide variety of people and perform a range of tasks from minute reviews, checking over financial accounts and testing of balances to client meeting, trips to London and further afield. My client base is diverse, meaning I get to experience work in many sectors broadening my knowledge for my exam studies.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I feel as though my technical ability within audit has developed massively since joining last summer with little or no knowledge about audit at all. practical experience is by far the best way to learn.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoy my programme in the main. At the end of the day it's still a job, and it's not fun and exciting all the time and there are times when it is stressful but there are also times when it's very rewarding.
4. How valued do you feel by Deloitte?
I feel quite highly valued by Deloitte. All of my studies are paid for, I get to travel abroad for clients even as an associate. The work is long and tough in busy season but everyone at the firm is really nice and approachable and help you develop and grow which makes you feel very important even at the lower levels.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The programme has a good outline and overall structure. However, our ACCA route to qualification isn't quite as clear cut as the ACA route is yet.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
My training provider is supportive in times of personal need and tries to be as flexible as possible. He helps a lot with scheduling and structuring aspects but I feel as though there should be more preparation and planning on their behalf.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
Deloitte are very clear with their exam policy and do help you out to pass your exams. However, some managers will still undervalue their importance to your life and may not let you go on time to revise after work or such. That is more a criticism of certain individuals rather than the firm though.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
There are lots of social opportunities to get involved with. Also there are lots of other development workshops and other aspects around your job that Deloitte can get you involved with if you show enough interest.
9a. Would you recommend Deloitte to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
Because the environment is a nice one to work in and the opportunities at the age of 22 you will have before you are amazing.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Deloitte? *
Be yourself, be confident. If you're worried about your future with affording university or after university, this offers security and stability with the chance to a change once qualified. Don't rule it out before you have a real look at the opportunity.
