Life at Deloitte

Why Deloitte?

At Deloitte, our success comes from giving you the support to become the best you can be. You’ll be challenged by your work, get to know great people on your team, and make an impact for the clients we serve. But first things first - why join us?

1. We're the global leader in professional services

As the world's largest global professional services network, we build on more than 175 years of service and a network of member firms that spans more than 150 countries and territories. Together, Deloitte’s more than 330,000 people worldwide aim to make an impact that matters for our clients, people and the society we live in.

Deloitte has nearly 3,000 professionals across Ireland providing Audit & Assurance, Tax, Consulting, Risk Advisory and Financial Advisory services to public and private clients spanning multiple industries.

In Brand Finance's Global 500 2021, Deloitte is recognized as the strongest and most valuable “commercial services” brand in the world for the 3rd consecutive year, ranking ahead of all major professional services competitors. The accolade is testament to Deloitte’s collective resilience during the past unprecedented year, as we strived to respond, recover and thrive in this ever-evolving world. It is also a tribute to how Deloitte has been able to pivot to meet clients’ changing needs, deepened investment in areas of greatest opportunity (such as transformation, cyber, digital and cloud), and supported communities. 

2. We're an award-winning workplace in Ireland

We're committed to providing a great experience for our people, and a supportive work environment that empowers you to achieve your full potential. We're proud that our culture, environment, and workplaces have been recognised through multiple awards and accolades, including:

  • consistently being selected as one of Ireland's Most Attractive Employers in Universum's research, across students and professionals;
  • being voted Most popular graduate recruiter in Accountancy & Professional Services in the 2021 GradIreland Graduate Recruitment Awards;
  • being recognised as a Glassdoor OpenCompany.

3. We work with, and for, the best

We believe the secret to our success, put simply, is who we are. We work with our clients, not just for them, solving their most complex and challenging problems to deliver the best results. These clients are leaders in their field – we work with most of the Fortune Global 500 companies, including top technology companies who have their headquarters in Ireland.

4. We develop our people to lead from day one… and the learning never stops

Deloitte is a place where leaders thrive, and it provides opportunities to lead irrespective of level or grade. Last year, our people completed over 120,000 hours of learning, receiving support at every stage of their career journey.

Our commitment to the professional development of people is sacrosanct. We focus on technical, client relationship and technology skills, and reinforced by on-the-job learning. Our lifelong learning approach ensures our people continue to succeed at every stage of their career.

As well as financial support, Deloitte’s in-house professional exam support includes introductory sessions, tutorials, exam preparation workshops, exam helpline and study leave, of which our allowances exceed the recommendations of the relevant professional bodies. Read about our recent exam success here.

5. A unique career journey with international exposure

At Deloitte, there are opportunities to make friends and build connections from all over the world. When you join Deloitte, you join a powerful and global network of talented professionals and international clients. We support you to embrace opportunities and assignments across the firm and the global network, developing you for life within and beyond Deloitte.

6. Harnessing collaboration and innovation

Our leaders promote a culture of collaboration ensuring we lead with purpose, values and innovation. Innovation is our key to success and we practice it in everything we do - from enhancing the services we offer clients and improving the way we do things within our business, to our job application process. 

Our commitment to leading the profession in global audit quality with International Accounting Bulletin’s resulted in several wins of the prestigious “Audit Innovation of the Year” award for our demonstrated dedication to innovation and the development of leading-edge tools to transform audit service delivery.

7. You can bring your complete self to work

Everyone can thrive, develop and succeed at Deloitte. Inclusion is about providing the tools, spaces and programmes that support the diverse needs of our people - focusing less on what makes people different and more on creating an environment that encourages everyone to bring their whole self to work, to play to their strengths and be appreciated for doing so.

By valuing inclusion we aim to shape a workplace which thrives on leveraging diversity, driving innovation and collaboration to make an impact that matters for our people and our clients. Read about Inclusion at Deloitte.

8. Make an impact beyond your job

Our fundamental belief is that we exist to make a positive impact for clients, our people, and the communities in which we live and work. Last year our people volunteered over 13,400 hours to impact the community. Everyone is encouraged and supported to give back - including through our Impact Week, an entire week each year devoted to having a direct and positive impact on society. Read more about our Corporate Responsibility.

9. Empowerment and recognition

At Deloitte Ireland, we continuously strive towards a culture that promotes personal and professional development. We believe that investing in people, encouraging them to achieve a work-life balance and providing support for their personal and professional development is the key to having happy, productive, and successful colleagues.

Your Reward at Deloitte is more than just your salary. It's your pension, your leave, your healthcare, your recognition, your development, your pay, your savings, your wellbeing and your time. We aim to offer supports and benefits that suit you, wherever you are in life.

10. And finally, at Deloitte, you can have fun

We recognise the importance of agile working, flexibility, and the ability to achieve career-life balance - and have several leave options to support our people throughout the various stages in their lives.

Deloitte Unplugged is our wellbeing programme - reminding our people to refuel both physically and mentally and change the mindset that we have to be ‘plugged in’ all the time.

Finally, our sports and social clubs are the perfect way to have some fun and meet your colleagues!

People come to Deloitte for a lot of reasons. Our people are one of them. This is an organisation where you are surrounded by intelligent, forward-thinking people, and can work within a culture of camaraderie while growing your career the way you want. So come for the opportunities, and stay for the people. At Deloitte, you’ll love the company you keep.
