The Role

Role Description

I worked for 3 weeks in Audit Insurance and Investment management, and 3 weeks in Corporate Tax, International. While I was working in audit, I was at the client site, and assisted the team with the testing of the company's accounts. I was often checking third-party documentation to ensure that the figures were all correct, and I was able to speak to the clients to gain the necessary information. While I was in tax, I was based in the Deloitte offices. I assisted many different members of the department. Some of the things I did include completing engagement letters and conflict checks for new clients, researching about companies, checking figures in tax computations, and drafting emails and letters. I also had the opportunity to sit in on some meetings with partners.

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

I had a really good placement, and really enjoyed working with everyone. My only complaint was that I didn't have a lot of work to do at the beginning.
