Hi, 

What international opportunities do you provide through Deloitte? I was also wondering what work experience you provide?

Thanks 


Hi Aimee,

We offer the chance to employees to work in different offices around the world, these can be short (3 months) or long term placements as well. Generally you won't get these in your first year as you'll be focused on training but if you perform well you can get these opportunities.

In terms of work experience, we offer a summer internship programme while you're studying where you can spend the summer working on real clients and seeing how we operate.

Thanks,
Rob

Hi Rob,


To get a job with Deloitte do you need to have a degree from university or is a polytech ok?

A polytech qualification is ok and we have graduates from a couple of polytechs starting with us next year.

Do you take graduates from Waikato uni? If so, would you employ a graduate who has done a bachelor of business analysis majoring in economics and finance?

Hi Mariah,

We recruit graduates from all the major universities and some of the polytechs in New Zealand.

We do look for finance and economics in particular for our Corporate Finance line. You can also look to go into Audit or Consulting.

Thanks,
Rob

Is the summer internship available for people who have just finished their last year of high school? Or just university students?

Hey Deloitte

I’m planning on studying accounting at University next year, I’d love to try get an internship with you guys. What extra things should I do in order to give me the best possible chance of getting it?


Hi Ben,

We look for people who are good all rounders so, good grades, work experience (even part time jobs through school/uni all help) and extra curricular activities (what are you into outside of accounting, sports, community work etc) all help build a really strong CV.

Also keep an eye out for us on campus and look to get along to events, these are great for meeting people and getting your name out there.


Thanks,

Rob

Hi Aimee,

We look for good all rounders and people driven to achieve their goals. Good grades, part time work and extracurricular activites are all helpful in making you stand out.

Everyone in our offices has interests outside of work and this helps them be passionate about the work they do.

Thanks,

Rob

Hi Aimee,

Our internship programme is designed for students at the end of their first year of university. At this stage we don't have a specific programme for people leaving high school.

Hi Laura,

Donuts look good! Can you tell me a bit about what kind of students you look for at Deloitte, do you need to be a high achiever at school to consider a career path with Deloitte?

Hi Oliver,

Good question. We really do look for well rounded students to join us. Academic achievement is important but we have a balanced view on this, if you have had some part time work experience, group / team experience at school or uni (clubs, cultural groups, special interest groups) and can demonstrate working well / operating well in a team based environment and being able to network this is something we take into account too.

So grades are part of it, but we like to see achievement in other aspects of your life too. We take students from a wide variety of study areas as well.

Hope that answers your question.


Laura

Hi Laura, 

Does Deloitte offer any roles outside of accounting? 

Would love to work for Deloitte but not interested in Accounting. I have more of a passion for engineering and IT. 

Thanks
