The Role

Role Description

Indirect tax, tax consulting

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

I really enjoyed my summer internship here with Deloitte. Given that I was going to be in a sector I had never interned at before, I was really nervous to start. But my team at Deloitte really helped me throughout the whole internship and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there.

2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

My team were one of the friendliest bunch and I was really fortunate to be in such a wonderful team. Everyone was ready to help us out in any way and properly explained even the simplest questions we asked. They made sure we got a proper intern experience and were given work.

10/10

3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

Deloitte gives you a buddy and also has SVS champions in every team. The SVS champions are there to check in with us every two weeks and always made sure we were okay and had enough work. And our buddies were there to help guide us if we ever needed anything.

10/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

There would be days where you became swamped with work and there would be days where the work load was less. In my opinion, there was a good balance. If we ever wanted more work, all we had to do was just ask around in my team and in one or two days, someone would give us work.

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

I would say we were given more responsibility than I thought we would be given. Our team really let us be part of projects and asked for our opinions and suggestions, which was surprising but very nice of them as it truly did make us feel a part of the team.

6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

I think this experience has given me a new perspective on what working life will be like. And it has helped me understand not only what it would be like working with Deloitte, but also more insight into tax consulting which is a career I am now very interested in.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Was a really nice atmosphere. Our office operated a hot seat basis which allowed us the chance to sit with different colleagues each day and mingle around. The office is located next to the canal which really made coming to work a lot nicer in the mornings. They also provided us with an equipped kitchen which was really nice!

5/10

8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

They were really well organised. They had a buddy system as well as SVS champions which made the internship a lot more structured. From day one, we were told to come up with individual goals (internship related) that we would then spend the next six weeks trying to complete them.

10/10

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

I think they did a good job. We had a lot of e learning courses that we could do in our spare time that did benefit us. Besides that, our colleagues also took the time to go through a lot of stuff since as a newcomer, there were lots to learn.

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Subsidised Canteen

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

They made me an offer which I am delighted to take up on! This internship really made me grateful that I chose Deloitte and am very excited to start working there after I graduate!

10/10

Social

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

I think there was a fairly decent scene. I did hope to see more of the other intents - especially in the other areas since we only saw the other tax interns. Think it is more difficult to have a social scene in regional offices compared to London since London is obviously a lot bigger.

7/10

13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

I lived in my university house over the summer so I would say the commute cost was the only cost I had to spend. The train to Birmingham wasn't bad and it was a really nice walk from the station to the office in the morning so did not feel like a hassle.

5/10

14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

I did not live where my office was so I can not comment on the nightlife. But from what I've heard, Birmingham has a pretty decent night life

5/10

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

Personally, there were not that many that were offered to us. Which maybe was due to it being summer and a lot of people not being in the office? So can not really comment on this question
