The 2017 Undergraduate Programme Scholar Scheme is for school leavers taking a gap year before university.

About Deloitte

Every year, the business and technology landscape is more ambiguous and disruptive. Solving the problems of today – and tomorrow – requires people with a broader set of skills and different ways of thinking. If you’re able to see, think and act differently, you’ll find Deloitte is a business that doesn’t just recognise your need to remain curious, but fully embraces it. It’s this attitude, shared by everyone who works here, that’s helping to shape a better world.

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 a 30 week paid placement in one of ten offices across the UK and in areas across our business, including:

  • Audit & Finance
  • Strategy & Operations
  • Tax

As well as giving you a deeper understanding of the world of business and an enviable head start to your career, you’ll also receive:

  • A £1,500 bursary to go travelling after the placement and before university
  • A minimum of four weeks of additional paid placements each academic year
  • A £500 annual bursary each academic year
  • The opportunity to work alongside our marketing team at your university campus
  • Exemption from our first interview stage if you decide to apply to Deloitte as a graduate
  • Possible accelerated promotion if you join Deloitte as a graduate
  • Technical experience that may count towards the ICAEW ACA qualification

Who can apply?

Our Scholar Scheme is open to all final year A-level (or equivalent) students who wish to take a gap year before attending university. We’re looking for individuals who have exceptional academic results, with a keen interest in business and their own career progression, combined with excellent communication and interpersonal skills. Whilst you’re in no way obligated to join Deloitte after graduation, we hope that most of our Scholars will decide to join us full time and be successful in securing a place on our Graduate Programme following university.

Why join our team

For the influencers, the challengers, and for those who are true thinkers – at Deloitte it’s the mind-set that makes the role. We’re one of the largest professional services firms in the world, with all of the opportunities for development and progression this brings. But more than that, we’re a firm of problem solvers.

From the start, you’ll be treated as a permanent member of staff, alongside the best minds in the industry. You’ll receive guidance from inspirational and supportive senior managers, benefit from tailored learning and development, and feel respected for your individuality. We also offer a competitive salary and a range of benefits and rewards.
