Social

12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

Not only withing the placement students, but within the whole office. Throughout my two months i think there was something going on every week. Because of their large intake every year everyone is fairly young and there is a really good social side to working at Deloitte. (Free drinks nights once a month, paid for by the company, is definately one to look out for!)

Nottingham is a really cheap area to live in and the office is right near the centre of town so really easy to get to by public transport.

Great nightlife in Nottingham.

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

As i have said before, there's always something going on in Deloitte, whether it be free drinks nights, team days, or inter-office sports.
