The Role

Role Description

The Deloitte scholar scheme is a 7 month placement that you can apply for in the gap year between leaving college/sixth form and starting at university. I worked within the audit department during my placement and my daily activities would be attending a year end audit for one of our clients and analysing and testing the reliability of their financial statements. There was a lot of travel involved and I got to meet a wide range of different businesses from different industries.

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

The various placements I have completed have been fantastic and I would recommend a placement with Deloitte to anybody with an interest in finance and business.
