7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

They brought in staff from different offices across the UK to give talks and work with us. I really appreciated the time they dedicated to this.

10/10

8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

We were only given insights and very simplified examples so I don't think it gave an accurate understanding. However, the general skills required and the structure of a full-time employees day was well demonstrated.

7/10

9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?

The staff we got to speak to had all good things to say! A lot of attention was given to asking each other what diversity, culture and inclusion meant to us, reflecting the values of the company.

10/10

10. How valuable was the content of the day in helping you to decide on your future career path?

I can't say that it helped me come to a definite decision. There is a lot more research I have to do myself before I can really decide what I want to do in the future. Nonetheless, I know that Deloitte offers a great range of jobs to choose from and that the opportunity to try new things is also available.

Other Information

11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?

up to £50 per day was reimbursed for travel expenses only. The insight programme was 2 days, with one night accommodation provided, however it started at 9 on the first day meaning that many of us had to sort out additional accommodation for the night before, which was not reimbursed.

12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?

Yes at lunch and dinner staff joined us and we had the opportunity to network then.

13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

5/10

14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

5/10

15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

Yes. It is only two days long but the information you receive definitely gives you an indication of what you might want to do in the future. Even if you decide it is not for you, other skills are learnt on this insight day for example interview skills, presentation and group work skills and body language techniques.
