Top 10 reasons to join Deloitte as a graduate:

1. Deloitte is a great place to accelerate your career to the next level as the world’s number one professional services firm

Whether a graduate is starting their career or looking to move to the next level, a career at Deloitte equips them with the knowledge, skills and experience to achieve their career aspirations. There’s a reason why Deloitte was voted the 'Most Popular Graduate Recruiter in Ireland' by the students this year – they offer challenging work and meaningful development opportunities. Above all, graduates are challenged by the people on their team and the high-quality clients Deloitte works with. Deloitte empowers graduates to become leaders early on in their career.

2. A global leader in professional services

Joining Deloitte provides graduates with an opportunity to become part of the worldwide leader in professional services and consulting, a global network of 244,400 people in 150 countries. In Ireland, Deloitte has over 2,700 professionals providing audit & assurance, tax, consulting, and corporate finance services to public and private clients spanning multiple industries. Deloitte equips their people with leadership capabilities, experience, and insight to collaborate with clients so they can move forward with confidence.

In 2017, the firm was ranked by Fortune magazine as one of the ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’. Bloomberg Business consistently names Deloitte as the best place to launch a career and earlier this year the firm earned a place on LinkedIn’s 2017 Global Top Companies list.

3. World-class learning and professional development opportunities

Deloitte is a place where leaders thrive and it provides graduates opportunities to lead, irrespective of level or grade. Their commitment to the professional development of people is sacrosanct. Focused on technical, client relationship and technology skills, and reinforced by on-the-job learning, their ‘lifelong’ tailored learning approach will ensure graduates continue to succeed at every stage of their career.

Deloitte also has one of the highest exam pass rates in professional exams in Ireland. As well as financial support, Deloitte’s in-house exam support includes introductory sessions, tutorials, exam preparation workshops, an exam helpline and study leave allowances that exceed the recommendations of the relevant professional bodies.

Orla Graham, CHRO, says: “We give graduates the opportunity to kick-start their career in a supportive but challenging environment. Our focus is on developing our people to grow and make an impact on the world around them. We believe Deloitte offers graduates more than just a job, it is an opportunity to develop both professionally and personally.”
