1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
As an Assistant Associate working within public sector audit, I have completed a number of internal audits. I have also had limited work experience in external audits within the public sector.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I believe that my computer skills have developed due to the work being completed mainly on computer. I have also developed communication skills working closely with clients on a daily basis.

I enjoy the friendly atmosphere at Deloitte, with lots of colleagues who are willing to help with any queries. I personally I did not know what to expect when I joined Deloitte but I feel that everybody within my team is always willing to help.

Through the feedback process that happens on each job, all positives and negatives are expressed in a way to help improve, and develop and ultimately progress.

There has been multiple training sessions from the start and throughout the year. We are informed of what exams we will be sitting well in advance.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
Our training provider is not very supportive, although we are assured tutors are available for all queries in some cases they are not. However in these instances I have found that work colleagues are more than happy to help.

All queries work or study related are dealt with swiftly. There is an effective buddy system in place, and also an exam manager who is more than happy to deal with any study related query.

On a first year salary living in the City it is hard to cover living costs, however this is a competitive salary in comparison to other school leaver programmes.
