Life at Deloitte

Co-op / Work Placement Programmes

Deloitte have excellent opportunities for students to undertake work placements as part of their degree programme. Placement periods generally range from 6 to 9 months and we work in conjunction with a number of universities in Ireland to facilitate this. Our work placement programme is a great opportunity to gain insight into the working world and find out if this is the career for you.

Don't just take our word for it... this is what some work placement students had to say:

"I completed my co-op in the Audit department in Limerick. I found this experience to be challenging, but also extremely interesting. With the help and guidance I received from my colleagues, I learned so much about how different businesses in a range of different industries operate. I have worked on many audits during my time here and I thoroughly enjoyed visiting client sites to gain an even better knowledge of how sales, debtors, creditors, expenses etc. are recorded. I could not have asked for a better placement as I now feel well-equipped going into my final year of college." Susan O'Connor, Audit Co-op, UL.

"Working in both the Audit and Tax departments has given me a brilliant insight into both areas. I have learnt everything from understanding all areas of the audit cycle, to preparing tax returns for different companies. The most beneficial aspect of this co-op is being given the opportunity to work in different areas across the firm and also working with the best people within the industry".  Kevin Harrington, Audit/Tax Co-op, UCC.
