Deloitte Talk

Monday 17th November 2014

On Thursday 13 November, U5 – U6 students were given an insight in to the School Leaver Schemes offered by Deloitte. The talk was given by Leanne Reed, Senior Assistant – South Region of Student Recruitment.

The talk given was interesting and informative as Leanne Reed covered what a large company like Deloitte has to offer in their 23 locations and also what the company look for in future applicants namely; career motivation, hunger to learn, commercial awareness, enthusiasm, team work, ability to communicate and problem solving skills.

Deloitte at present offers two programmes for school leavers:

1)     BrightStart Scheme
