1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
As an analyst I am helping out mainly in terms of administrative tasks . My main exposure is to the internal team with other junior colleagues. I have no interactions with clients.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have developed on communication skills - in being more articulate when discussing a project. I am currently studying for my ACA/CTA
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
The work is typical of an entry level position however it could be more challenging and tailored towards individual experiences. There has been substantial investment in the programme from the company in financial terms however this sometimes falls short as the wider company does not understand the programme well. It can be enjoyable when work is available.
4. How valued do you feel by Deloitte?
It is hard to tell how valued I am. Partners provide more recognition, than other people. There is more of a push for Bright starts to go out into the community and advertise the role than there is internal recognition. In terms of responsibility it is limited I.e. meeting deadlines etc. Feedback is very limited. The mentoring structure is great and I feel valued to the extent that I feel like I can talk with a buddy. Appraisers an be quite patronising
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The induction and training were very well organised. In terms of study and support they are excellent. I do not like the rigidity of the programme - as it should reflect a persons aspirations. Task delegation is poor.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
The training providers work well in recognises normal policy but find it difficult to support people who come back to work I.e. after sickness. It is quite difficult to build connections with existing networks.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
There is great access to services. However not represented by the size of the firm.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
Not well - for a London-based salary it doesn't meet living costs / travel costs / or role-related social expenses costs and should be more reflective of the graduate salary ( which is higher than average).
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
It is more a case of being pro-active. There seem to be few clubs or internal social activities for people who have re-located to London. However with it being London - there is always something to do and in that respect there is opportunities outside of work.
9a. Would you recommend Deloitte to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
Although it looks great on your CV being a Big 4 Accounting Firm. I wouldn't recommend it if you are planning to start as an apprentice.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Deloitte? *
The application process was really good. Preparation and research is key. The Senior Mangers/ Partners look for enthusiasm and confidence. The Onboarding process can be overwhelming - be prepared. It is also good to bear in mind that it not reflective of your day-to-day role. Experience related to the sector you want to apply to is a plus, but not necessary. I would have like more information with regards to Deloitte processes and expectations in a more specific way.
