Deloitte has begun the recruiting process as it looks to take on 150 undergraduates in 2011 as part of its annual Summer Vacation Scheme.
The auditing and financial advisory organisation will run a seven-week programme offering penultimate year students the chance to work in their auditing, tax or consulting departments.
The Summer Vacation Scheme will enter its eleventh year in 2011 and is one of the few work experience placements to offer a competitive wage, with successful applicants receiving 85% of a typical Deloitte graduate salary during their stay.
‘The scheme has been designed to help Deloitte secure top talent and it enables us to target these people at an earlier stage. The scheme is a great opportunity for students to learn valuable business skills in a corporate environment and earn some money to use in their final year at university,’ said Sarah Shillingford, graduate recruitment partner at the company.
‘Internships and placements are a must-have experience. The skills learned and experience gained carry real currency in the job market. Internships offer students a great opportunity to gain experience, a head start and make some informed career decisions.
‘Internships and placements offer hands-on experience which is ideal for CVs. Employers want to see hands-on experience,’ she added.
Deloitte’s work experience scheme has an excellent retention rate with over 80% of participants in the last four years going on to take up a graduate position with the company after finishing university.
