Summer Internship 2020

Each year, we are delighted to welcome over 150 undergraduates to the Deloitte Summer Internship programme which runs from June to August in our Dublin, Belfast, Cork, Limerick and Galway offices.

An internship at Deloitte is a fantastic way to get up close to the world of business, and find out what excites and inspires you. It gives you a real taste of professional life and will allow you to get ahead in your career even before you have left college or university. On top of that, it is a great way to enhance your CV with practical work experience.
Our structured Internship Programmes provide a collaborative, open culture where you will have exposure to everything that goes in a global fast paced firm like Deloitte. You will learn from experienced colleagues and meet clients representing a variety of industries and environments as we help you make a smooth transition from student to professional. You’ll also enjoy a supportive environment where everyone is accessible and invested in your training and growth.

What kind of work will I be doing?

You’ll spend eight to twelve weeks, between June and August in one of our business units whilst getting a taste for what it’s really like to work in the largest professional services firm in the world.

Each of our Internships has a different focus, so your work will differ depending on the kind of role you choose. If it’s Audit & Assurance, for example, you’ll be working with a team that advises clients on their accounting systems and controls, ways to improve them and reduce risk. In Financial Advisory, its all about working in a team that advises clients on buying or selling a business for example. Whereas, in Technology, you’re more likely to be in a team designing new systems or developing IT strategy.

All of our projects are about problem solving, which happens best when we work collaboratively. Throughout your internship, you’ll connect with colleagues across different teams, to tackle challenges for our clients. As well as this, 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.

You can join one of seven internship programmes, each focused on a different kind of role:

  • Audit & Assurance (8 weeks)
  • Consulting (12 weeks)
  • Restructuring Services (12 weeks)
  • Risk Advisory (12 weeks)
