Our learning approach

As much as 70% of people's learning comes from things they experience and practice everyday whilst carrying out their usual responsibilities. Stretching oneself and exploring where additional opportunities to learn and grow may exist is the most effective and frequent way in which people develop. About 20% of our learning at Deloitte is through connecting with and observing others; seeking out mentors or experts to coach you including people in other service lines. About 10% of what people will learn during their time at Deloitte will be through formal learning.

Our multidisciplinary practices, coupled with the wide range of industries we serve, can open up an infinite number of career options for you. It is our aim to actively support you to get the most out of your time at Deloitte.

Deloitte Ireland is part of a global network of member firms, so you will have access to excellent communities of practice.
