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

7/10

Tax analyst working with a variety of clients in the domestic and international space in advisory and compliance projects. The work is varied and changes day to day, highlights have included working on large multi office projects and working with international teams from countries as far away as Australia and New Zealand.

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

9/10

I have learnt many technical skills surrounding my work. I have also developed skills such as communicating with a wide range of people, this includes staff and clients and I have learnt to adapt my style and content to accommodate the audience. I have also developed time management skills and delegation techniques.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

8/10

Most of the time I really enjoy the work that I am doing as it feels like we can make a real difference for clients. The work can be challenging, which is something that I enjoy. Whilst there are always tough days, other people at work are always willing to lend a hand or explain difficult concepts.

4. How well organised/structured is your programme?

6/10

At the beginning of the programme it felt very structured as a lot of the programme seemed to be focussed on exams. As time has progressed there is less guidance and although there are semi regular check in events, the onus is on the individual to ensure that they are up to date with the necessary sections.

5. How much support do you receive from your employer?

8/10

The employer gives a lot of support in terms of exams which are a necessary part of the apprenticeship. They give a lot of time off to study for these and provide all of the materials. Within the office there is a lot of support in terms of coaching and mentoring if you ask/look for it.

6. How much support do you receive from your training provider when working towards your qualifications?

8/10

The training provider gives a lot of support when exam time comes around. As the studying and exams tend to be close together this means that there is a lot of time when I have little contact with the training provider outside of semi-regular catch ups. However the tutors are always available and willing to help if required

7. How well do you feel that your qualification (through your training provider) helps you to perform better in your role?

9/10

Parts of the qualification are directly related to my job (tax) and working through these had a big impact on my performance in my role. There were a number of exams that didn't have a direct impact on my performance, however these served to make me a more well rounded individual and would have an indirect impact.

8. Are there extra-curricular activities to get involved in at your work? (For example, any social activities, sports teams, or even professional networking events.)

9/10

Yes, the office usually has a number of social events happening throughout the calendar. This is a mix of official events such as work balls and team socials, and there are also regular unofficial trips for a drink (alcoholic or not) on a Friday. A number of people in the office also play football and others attend the events that are put on by the local student society.

9a. Would you recommend Deloitte to a friend?

Yes

9b. Why?

I would recommend Deloitte to a friend because the work is so varied and you can be given a lot of responsibility early on in your career which you may struggle to find in other roles. You will have access to interesting and changing work with the largest companies but can also work on projects that have a real local impact.

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

I would say that you should be yourself throughout the interview process, and try to show yourself as a well rounded individual. Academic achievements can be important, but so are other achievements and roles that you have undertaken whether that is a part time job, playing a sport or instrument or volunteering that you have done
