1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
My role involves producing regular reports for my project and sharing them with the key stakeholders in the team. I interact daily with the client as well as the managers from my project. I have been on the same project for 3 months now and my responsibility is to handle the delivery of the platform to the client.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I am doing a professional qualification which is considered as a level 6 qualification. We have a lot of internal training courses that you can book but you can only really do them inbetween projects as client work is a priority. I also try to do some online courses in my spare time.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoy the work that I do although at times it does get repetitive. The team and the clients are nice and are supportive of my studies. I like the company culture as everyone feels at the same level despite the natural company hierarchy which makes everyone feel equal.
4. How well organised/structured is your programme?
When I first joined we had a great introduction into the company structure and culture even though it felt tiring despite the fact that the days we are normal working hours such as 9 to 5. There is plenty of support available from peers to your managers who are very helpful.
5. How much support do you receive from your employer?
My managers and peers are always available for support and advice and if the studies ever get too much they let me have time off, even if it is last minute. I feel like the general attitude is to prioritise the studies which is good and I feel like all companies should move towards that attitude
6. How much support do you receive from your training provider when working towards your qualifications?
I do not have as much communication with my training provider and it is partly because I feel the distance between us and them and when I did have queries I did not find it that they were as helpful and it is easier to just ask my peers or someone else.
7. How well do you feel that your qualification (through your training provider) helps you to perform better in your role?
I feel like what I study is directly is reflected in the work that I do on a daily basis such as the context of the report that I run. It really does help when you know the theory and gives you a bigger picture of why we do things.
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.)
We have a social club at work where we do regular events such as team dinners and events like ping pong. It is a great opportunity to meet people from across the business and network with them. I also volunteer at work events from time to time when opportunities arise.
9a. Would you recommend Deloitte to a friend?
I would recommend it as it is a great place to work. It can be hard in the beginning but once you get a general idea of what is going on it becomes quite easy. The people around are really helpful so you will never feel like you are left to do a task on your own.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Deloitte?
The most important thing is to decide that it is what you really want to do. We had a few people leave because they were unhappy and it just felt like they wasted time here. There is a lot of information and reviews available online. Also prepare well for the interview, do research
