Role Description

Spent 7 months of gap year on the Deloitte graduate programme. Attended financial college for 3 weeks and learnt first 2 ACA modules. Went to audit clients and spoke with management to check that financial statements had been prepared properly

The Role

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

I was given the opportunity to perform the same work as a graduate, even though I had not gone to University yet, meaning that I learnt alot and was supported the whole time when I didn't understand.

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

I know that my work was appreciated, although working in different teams each week makes it harder to get to know people really well.
4 /5

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

I always had people on my team with different levels of experience that would help me when I was confused by what I was meant to be doing.
5 /5

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

There were a few days when I had to stay late and had lots of work, and others when I was left with not much to do, but this is just the nature of being on an audit job, and we would be able to leave early when we didnt have work, to make up for the days when we stayed late.
4 /5

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

For my age and experience I was really impressed with how much responsibility I was given, and had the chance to interview senior management of large companies to report back to my mangers. It was great experience and helped me to learn alot.
4 /5

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

The experience of working in a professional environment and being trained to understand accountancy is a skill that has helped me apply for more internships at University and get more experience

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

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Subsidised Canteen
  • National Travel
  • International Travel

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

The scheme is great because you can skip out all stages of the application for graduate jobs and just have a partner interview following this internship scheme.
4 /5

We were sent away on 2 social weekends to get to know all the interns in the country, and many of us have stayed in touch after the placement

We could pick which area of the country we wanted to be placed in meaning we could live at home to save money
