About Deloitte School Leavers

Every year, the business and technology landscape is more ambiguous and disruptive. Solving the problems of today takes more creativity and empathy than ever before.

For the influencers, the challengers, and for those who are true thinkers – you’ll find at Deloitte it’s the mind-set that makes the role.

Often described as the firm’s greatest assets, Deloitte’s people think boldly, act commercially, and make decisions based on the impact they’ll have for clients, colleagues and the communities they live in.

It’s this attitude, shared by everyone who works there, that helps to shape a better world. And with offices across the UK, wherever you join us, you’ll soon find out for yourself why Deloitte, really is, for the curious.

Programmes Available 

Whoever you are, wherever you are now, this is your chance to build a successful career. Our BrightStart Higher Apprenticeship Scheme and Scholar Scheme are both fantastic ways to get started, giving you a deeper understanding of the world of business and an enviable head start to your career.

BrightStart Higher Apprenticeship Scheme

Available at a number of Deloitte offices across the UK, you can join our earn-while-you-learn apprenticeship in areas across our business, including Audit & Finance, Business & Financial Advisory, Real Estate, Strategy & Operations, Tax Consulting and Technology. Whatever route you choose, you’ll gain practical, hands-on experience, benefit from first-class training and development, and study towards professional qualifications, fully-funded by the firm. And because you’ll also be doing a real job from the day you start, you’ll enjoy rewards that reflect the valuable contribution you bring.

Scholar Scheme

What do you want from your gap year? The opportunity to travel and live away from home? Or an experience that will lay the foundations of a long-term career? With Deloitte, you can combine the two. Starting in August or September, our unique Scholar Scheme offers those taking a gap year before university a 30-week paid placement in one of ten offices across the UK. As well as hands-on experience and world-class training, you’ll also receive enviable benefits including a £1500 bursary to go travelling after the placement and exemption from our first stage interview if you choose to join us a graduate. You can join our Scholar Scheme in Audit & Finance, Strategy & Operations or Tax, and continue to gain commercial experience as you join us each summer throughout university until you graduate.

Academic Requirements

Whilst specific requirements for each of the schemes vary, we’ll expect you to have a keen interest in business and your own career progression, along with exceptional academic results; in general, a minimum of 260 UCAS points: equivalent to two Cs and one B at A level in your first sitting (not including General Studies).
