Careers with Deloitte for IT graduates
Deloitte employees come from every kind of background. A huge number of interns and graduates who join our graduate programmes do not have a business degree. Their degrees were across the spectrum of science, technology, engineering and maths. Having grown to be the largest professional services firm in the world, our strength consistently lies in the fact that we recruit people who look at complex issues through a different lens.
One thing connects us: our attitude. We are curious, imaginative and open-minded. From our partners to our interns, we are all here to make a positive impact for our clients and society, as well as build successful careers for ourselves. Read some of our stories below from our people who have come from STEM courses.
What does the Graduate Programme involve?
Our structured Graduate Programme provides a collaborative, open environment where you can have a voice and bring your great ideas to life. You’ll be an important part of the team from day one, working face-to-face with clients on jobs that are relevant to your interests. As you go, you’ll enjoy a supportive environment where everyone is accessible and invested in your training and growth.
In Ireland, Deloitte is a team of nearly 3,000 talented and driven individuals. Our firm is growing in the marketplace. We’re ambitious and committed to being a leader in the delivery of five world class business areas: Audit & Assurance, Tax, Risk Advisory, Financial Advisory, and Consulting.
The diversity of our services, our clients and the industries that we serve, in addition to our people, is why we believe Deloitte is the #1 place to launch your career in Ireland. Joining Deloitte is also your opportunity to become part of the worldwide leader in professional services and consulting, a global network of approximately 312,000 people in 150 countries and territories.
You can join one of seven graduate programmes, each focused on a different kind of role. Visit our website to learn more.
What kind of work would I be doing?
Each of our graduate programmes has a different focus and we offer a variety of career options where you'll learn how to create innovative business, technology and operational solutions and develop the expertise to implement them. If you join our Audit & Assurance programme, for example, you’ll learn how to advise clients on their accounting systems and controls, ways to improve them and reduce risk. Whereas, in Technology, you’re more likely to be designing new systems or developing IT strategy. And in Tax Consulting, as you’d expect, you’ll become your clients’ expert in all things tax-related. All of our projects are about problem solving, which happens best when we work collaboratively.
Throughout your graduate training and entire career, you’ll connect with colleagues across different teams, to tackle challenges for our clients. As well as gaining a recognised professional qualification, you’ll develop the kind of rounded business skills that will serve you well regardless of where your future takes you. With more projects focused on technology and the latest digital developments, we approach every client with a clear eye on the future. It’s that vision that enables us to help the biggest businesses make some of their biggest decisions.
As our clients’ businesses grow so will your expertise. You will gain “hands on” project experience working with professional and experienced teams. You'll be encouraged and expected to think for yourself, use your initiative and work collaboratively to deliver pioneering solutions for our clients.
