Technology is an essential tool – one that’s critical to our success. Deloitte offers a wide range of platforms that will help you share knowledge, stay connected, network and communicate in a safe, organized manner (i.e. Skype for business, Microsoft Teams, OneDrive, etc.).
We will also equip you with your own laptop to provide 24-hour access to our networks from anywhere. And our software, hardware and networks are upgraded regularly so technology is not a barrier to achieving excellence.
You’ll also receive support for any further education you decide to undertake. We encourage and support these activities in various ways, such as providing time during paid workdays for taking exams, offering financial support and, in some cases, providing incentives to continue your education.
Helping you excel through education ensures not only your personal development but that of the firm, forming part of Deloitte’s purpose to Make an Impact that matters.
