We are looking for motivated, excited young professionals from across the country. We are open to you working for any of our Canadian offices. To view where our offices are located, please click here. If you are selected to the program, someone from our team will give you an overview of the offices that are in your community. At Deloitte Canada, we have a hybrid model, known as N2, that creates flexibility for our people to work virtually and/or on site based on the nature of the work to be done and the norms set within our collective teams. Once you start your internship with us, you will be able to engage in conversations with your direct managers and teams to decide what would work best.

Each intern is assigned a “Buddy” and a “Coach”. A Buddy is responsible for answering all day-to-day questions while on the job, whereas, a Coach is responsible for career development and evaluation. Throughout the summer, you will submit feedback requests to team members who you work with. You will then be able to have individual conversations to discuss performance with your close team members. Your Coach will also be responsible for meeting with your team members to discuss your overall performance and any areas of strength/weakness. Over the summer, the hope is for summer students to learn through experience, these conversations aim to provide constructive feedback in order to support development. At the end of your internship, there will be a culminating interview to review your performance over the term and receive feedback regarding your experience at Deloitte.
