28/02/17 - Discover... your knowledge!
Seeking knowledge is a huge key to being successful in this lifetime, and without it we limit ourselves greatly.
Anurag Prakash Ray - Indian film director
We’ve all been in a situation where we felt studying would never come to an end; where we would find any excuse to have a drink, make a toastie or take a break. I will never forget studying for my ‘O’ levels during the final of the tennis French Open – I never missed a match. Excuses not to sit at my desk were the order of the day. In truth, the day when studying came to an end never really came. In time, I realised that the single most important element to any job was the knowledge one picks up on the way. The continuous learning from colleagues, bosses and training.
Deloitte is one such place. A firm with over 400 professionals in different spheres, ready to pass on their hard-earned knowledge. It is a place of continuous learning. Not one day goes by when I don’t learn something new either by doing it or by being shown how to do it. The collaborative spirit and encouragement to succeed is a hallmark of Deloitte’s success.
24/02/17 - Discover … your future
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
Mark Twain - Author
How many times have you planned your future? How many lists and resolutions have you drawn up over the years? Often, we find ourselves regretting the things that we have done without really looking at those that we have not even tried to do. There are times when a leap of faith is all you need to define your passions and create your future. At Deloitte we work to inspire our people to innovate and think outside the box, for themselves, our clients and our communities. We invest in our people, offering them the chance to discover their strengths and their future.
21/02/17 - Discover … your choices
It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
J.K. Rowling - Author
How many times have you stopped to think and looked back at the choices you have made along the way? How many times have you wondered where you would be had you chosen a different path? In the end we are the result of our choices along the way. Choices that have defined us and led us to even more choices. At Deloitte we offer you a variety of choices with doors that open onto good, solid careers. Our training programmes and work environment are designed to give our people the best foundation for their careers, working with their strengths to offer them the best choices.

Integrity is the essence of everything successful.
R. Buckminster Fuller - Inventor
Have you ever aspired for success? Each and every one of us has at one stage or another sought to be successful and worked toward their individual definition of success. For success can be many things to many different people. At Deloitte, we encourage success in all we do yet we measure it through the integrity and values we preach and uphold. As a purpose-led global firm, we recognise value-based success as our responsibility and work toward instilling a sense of integrity and value-based strength amongst our staff and clients as well as our communities.
13/02/17 - Discover... your purpose!
He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.
Friedrich Nietzsche - German Philosopher
Have you ever sat at your desk and wondered why you get up and go to work every morning? Have you ever questioned your purpose? Here at Deloitte, we make it our business to question our purpose and ensure that all we do makes an impact that matters with our clients, colleagues and communities. We recognise that in order to be fulfilled at work one has to work with a purpose that enriches who we are and what we do. We encourage you to discover yourself knowing that a new perspective can change everything.
08/02/17 - Discover... yourself!
A new perspective can change everything.
We all have dreams and a large part of what makes us truly happy is fulfilling these dreams over the course of our lives. In some cases, over time, we develop a fear of dreaming too big. We develop a fear of failure and refuse to recognise the many opportunities that are out there.
We at Deloitte, love big dreams. We love people with the motivation to capture their dreams and seek new opportunities. There is a world of opportunities waiting to be explored and we would like to show you the path to getting there.
The Deloitte Careers Fair is more than just a fair. It is an opportunity to explore the different opportunities that are out there and allow you to dream. With the participation of sixth forms, universities, higher educational institutions, and careers advisors, the Deloitte Careers Fair offers the opportunity for those sitting for their ‘O’ levels, ‘A’ levels, and those studying at University to come and find their paths, even if those paths don’t lead directly to Deloitte. We hope to inspire students to dream and open a window onto the opportunities that are available to enable them to do so. We also welcome those who wish to change career path and join the Deloitte family.
As a global network of member firms, an experience at Deloitte sets you apart from the rest. It exposes you to a different reality, to the highest of standards in an international and professional environment. A stepping stone in your career – a path to achieving your dreams.
