Frequently Asked Questions

BrightStart Apprenticeship program

When and how do I apply?

Applications for the BrightStart Apprenticeship program are open for a limited time only. Apply now.

How is Saudi Electronic University (SEU) connected to this program?

Saudi Electronic University (SEU) is a pioneering and specialised higher education institution that offers both graduate and undergraduate degree programs, along with life-long education. It is the first and only university in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to offer blended learning (a combination of both online and classroom lessons) to all its students.

With more digitally-delivered forms of higher education growing in importance around the world, we felt that they were an excellent partner with which to launch this apprenticeship program.

Successful applicants of this program will therefore be invited to select a program from SEU’s range of respected undergraduate degrees to study part time, alongside their professional work at the Deloitte offices.

Will I need to apply separately to SEU?

Yes – alongside your application to Deloitte, you will need to submit an application to SEU. We will advise you of the relevant dates to do so.

Where will I work?

This program is entirely Riyadh-based so BrightStart Apprentices will start in one of our two Deloitte Riyadh offices. However, with more experience, apprentices can gradually expect to be located on client sites around the city (and potentially around the country), at the very heart of project activities.

Are private areas available for women in the KSA Deloitte offices?

Yes, both of our Riyadh offices have an appropriate area available for women who prefer to work in a female-only space. This section is also well-served by women-only amenities connected to it for optimal comfort.

What qualifications do I need?

While we do expect strong academic achievement, we are also interested in getting to know you, your passions and the motivations that drive you.

As a minimum, please refer to the minimum academic requirements for the program within the application form and confirm that you meet these before submitting your application form.

Please note that if you’ve already graduated from university, you won’t be able to join our BrightStart Apprenticeship program. Explore the opportunities available as part of our Graduate program.

Will I be supported when I start at Deloitte?

Moving on from high school into the professional world is a big step for anyone. We understand that. Which is why we offer apprentices plenty of support from the start.

Even before the first day, each apprentice will be given a Deloitte buddy from the business area you plan join. They can answer any questions you have before and after joining the firm. There will also be welcome dinners and events that provides an opportunity to connect with the team and the other apprentices before your first day.

Once you’re here, you’ll have a large support network that includes your team of colleagues and HR contacts. Best of all, as part of a group of apprentices, you will have a ready-made network of peers who are similar in age to you and embarking on the same career journey from day one.
