Dominic is an Assistant Associate Consultant in our Enterprise Risk Services, Testing team based in London. Dominic joined the BrightStart School Leaver programme in September 2012.

Why did you choose a school leaver scheme over University?

The school leaver scheme was a great opportunity to work for one of the largest professional services firms without a degree, hence avoiding those nasty tuition fees!

Taking time on my current project to help senior members validate test results for stakeholders and ensure visibility of third party issues which may impact our team.
