A Career in Tax

By Kate Healy, Co-operative Student 

"When I began researching internships with different firms, Deloitte really stood out for me. From researching the Deloitte website and speaking with current and former employees, it became very apparent that Deloitte is hugely employee focused.

As a training firm, Deloitte plays a huge role in the personal and professional development of its employees. The emphasis that is placed on work/life balance through initiatives such as the Sports & Social Club and the compressed working week during summer months is another aspect of life at Deloitte that really attracted me to this particular firm."

From Intern to Audit & Advisory Graduate

By Sonia Nairn, Audit & Advisory Graduate

Diversity at Deloitte

By Aaron O'Sullivan, Co-op Student in Risk Advisory

“Diverse teams benefit the boardroom.”

“Variety is the spice of life” or so the saying goes, but when it comes to diversity in today’s workforce, the potential benefits to be gained for companies are much more rewarding than the old adage may lead one to believe. A diverse team offers a rich tapestry of backgrounds, insights and perspectives to a company.

The opportunities for talent recruitment, staff wellbeing, fulfilment and retention (and productivity as a result), innovation and new business can be hugely beneficial for a company. Read more...
