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

3/10

I was an analyst working in day-to-day E&R tax accounting. I spent 3 weeks at Warwick university for my initial training, followed by ad hoc but frequent training. My role involved assisting consultants and was very learning heavy, there was also the exam aspect which was horrible as Deloitte did not provide sufficient learning time.

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

9/10

Tax accounting. Professional workplace skills, office etiquette etc. I learned a lot very quickly and this could be hard to process due to the sheer volume, Deloitte were supportive but there was a very clear culture of a hard induction into the world of tax to 'prove yourself'. learning s.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

2/10

I didn't really enjoy it in all honesty as the ask was too great, especially coming from a non accounting background. In the end I had a bit of a mental breakdown due to work pressures and left this role. I had to ave some time off work.

4. How well organised/structured is your programme?

10/10

Very well organised - Because overall their policies e.g. sick leave are very generous. I would not recommend doing an ACA through Deloitte though for mental health reasons. the whole process was very stressful. Deloitte Consulting I would highly recommend however as they look after their people better. I have great respect for my colluges in tax but i think there is room for culture change, and respect for the younger members of staff.

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

1/10

Not enough, 3 days to learn high level accounting is impossible, I didn't have a weekend off in terms of living to study within this period. Its completely expected that you have to use your personal holiday allowance to study, which seems unfair. You work long hours and you study that is your life for 3 years.

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

5/10

The teaching style I personally did not like.

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

3/10

Only had one experience of them, I felt highly stressed and didn't think I gained enough knowledge from the sessions.

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.)

5/10

Yes lots of socials however at analyst level you are very aware you are 'bottom of the pile' and thus are not given the same level of milestone celebrations/ recgonition as more senior levels.

9a. Would you recommend Deloitte to a friend?

Yes

9b. Why?

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

Recruitment is pain and slightly generic almost luck really. Try really really hard to ace the tests as there is no human element to this. The interviews vary hugely based on who does them and often they are slow to let you know you got the job. Research your interviewer if you can
