Join Deloitte

7 reasons to join Deloitte Audit

It’s about putting people first

Our people and culture are redefining what it means to be a professional services firm. It’s about creating a workplace where you can be inspired and be inspiring. A workplace where you can grow and feel a sense of belonging and camaraderie. In other words, it’s about putting people first. Here seven reasons why you should join Deloitte Audit.

1. Professional qualifications and training

Working as an Auditor provides one of the finest and fastest educations in business imaginable. One of the biggest advantages of joining Deloitte is that we fully sponsor you to undertake a professional qualification. The amount of training you get is incredible. In your first year at Deloitte, you will receive 160 hours of training in Belgium and abroad. More senior people always oversee what you're doing and guide you where necessary. We give you all the resources you need to do your job well. You are not on your own, Deloitte is behind you all the way!

Qualifying as an Auditor is a springboard that allows you to progress very far and very fast in business. Starting out in auditing gives you a strong foundation for a career in business because of the way you learn to understand businesses and think commercially.

3. Our people our brand & Friends for life!

People come to Deloitte for a lot of reasons. Our people are one of them. This is an organisation where you are surrounded by young, dynamic, entrepreneurial and forward-thinking people. This is a chance to work within a culture of camaraderie and grow your career the way you want.

If you choose to work for Deloitte Audit you will almost certainly make some great friends and have a lot of fun. Possibly the best part of working for Deloitte is the people that you’ll meet – they’ll all be like you. After spending a few weeks in classes in Belgium or abroad, studying with the rest of your intake you will undoubtedly make a strong bond with these people - and we are talking around eighty-five colleagues.

You’ll be seeing most of these people for the next three years and will be in classes with them for a few weeks every year until you are qualified. Not only will you be making some fantastic friends, but you will also form a formidable network. However, it is not just people from your intake who you will meet. Part of the attraction of auditing is that you are given a portfolio of clients each with their own team. This will mean that across the year you will constantly be meeting new people. There will be a lot of hard work being done but the camaraderie (especially on a small client) will mean you will be laughing at the same time.

To support this friendship you may expect charity events, sports teams, team dinners and so much more.

4. Client interaction

Another bonus of working for Deloitte is that you’ll get client interaction. You’ll be based at the client site, spending only a couple of hours a week at our office. The job entails that you sit down with the client spending time understanding the processes and financial controls in place. You will often be involved in meetings with high ranking individuals, such as Chief Financial Officer. As you become more senior, your client interaction will develop into more managerial type meetings involving deadlines and how the work will be completed. Eventually you may be involved in pitches for new clients.

5. Audit “boring” or “not cool???”

Working for one of these companies provides the prestige of working for one of the world's largest organisations. When you tell people that you work for Deloitte you will get the instant respect that comes with working for a global market leader. Although being an Auditor comes with the stereotypical notion that you are a boring, numbers obsessed individual, the truth is that it is a well-respected profession.

6. Different industries and diverse clients

Being part of the largest professional services firm in Belgium, you will work in a multidisciplinary team for large national companies, multinationals as well as for mid-sized, family-owned businesses and start-ups… active in different industry sectors such as consumer business, telecom, education, real estate, pharma etc.

Joining Deloitte as a graduate in Audit means that you quickly get to work for top-level clients and for the most senior people at those organisations.

7. A powerful network of talented professionals

Because many of our clients have global presences, working in audit is very international. It means you get access to some of the most senior people at some of the biggest organisations in business.

When you join Deloitte, you join a powerful and global network of talented professionals. We provide opportunities to build lifelong connections with colleagues and clients – all around the world – because we perform better when we connect the dots between our people and their strengths.

Every company is different and has its own audit team. That's one of the aspects I like the most about my job. My portfolio is diverse and even international: from SME’s to multinationals, listed companies or even hospitals. I have travelled to London to visit and review one of our clients and I have attended several internal trainings abroad. In a few weeks, I will perform the audit of my primary school in my hometown. As you can see, we learn to be flexible and get in touch with the inside of a wide variety of businesses.
