You may have noticed that non-graduate entry opportunities is a big priority for us. Talent is at the heart of our core values, no matter where it comes from or what shape it takes.

This is why we decided to celebrate our existing BrightStart apprentices in an evening hosted by David Sproul our CEO and Emma Codd our managing partner for Talent.

Old DSC7142 (2)We kicked things off with David Sproul welcoming us all and giving a brief overview of the strategy and the doors it can open for our people: Deloitte as the place were our apprentices can push the boundaries of discovery and exploration and where unsolvable problems are solved for the wellbeing of clients, people and society.

That is when the stars of the show took the stage! Tom Elsey and Angharad Old, two BrightStarts, shared their journey so far and proudest moments.

Emma Codd then spoke about the future of the programme and the plan to double the number of apprentices in the firm by September 2016.

Our Head of Professional Education & Apprenticeships, Honey Clarke, also spoke about all the people in the firm that want to support apprentices, get involved and become a BrightStart Ambassador.

We rounded the evening off with Honey being joined by Emma, Gordon McFarland and Alex Sinclair for a panel session in which they took questions from the audience, before celebrations continued over drinks.

11 jan DSC7210 (2)The BrightStart scheme is the firm’s non graduate entry route into most of our professions, from audit to consultancy; a route that started in 2011 with a small number of school leavers joining Audit and Tax in London and the regions. Numbers have slowly grown to include all our career paths and, in September 2015, we saw 115 BrightStarts join Deloitte, including the delivery centre in Belfast, taking us to a total of 300.

If you or someone you know might be interested in becoming a BrightStart and gaining up to a degree-equivalent professional qualification, the application for the 2016 intake is now open.
