I’m Grant, a recent university graduate in my first year working in the Transaction Services team in Leeds. In this blog I’ll let you know about my experience in the Deloitte grad scheme, and give you tips to help with your application. Feel free to post any questions in the comments section below.
If you’re anything like I was before I started Deloitte, you are probably currently picturing: a man, with a degree in Maths or accounting, and they’re probably a bit geeky. Now that I’ve met the other Leeds grads, and spent a month with my colleagues in Transaction Services, I can say that I was completely wrong…
There is a much wider range of people here than I expected. Of the new grads in Leeds there’s about a 50/50 split between men and women [(although Corporate Finance is fairly male dominated)]. My new colleagues come from a wide range of backgrounds, and with varying degrees.
The one thing that unites the new grads (and Deloitte employees in general) is that they’re intelligent, confident and personable – Deloitte obviously want people who can develop positive relationships with clients, and not just number crunchers.
