As our business grows, we’re excited to hear from people who are keen to work in and contribute to a challenging but inclusive and enjoyable workplace, where the focus is on making a positive and tangible impact in their teams, for the clients they work with and also in the broader society in which the firm operates.”

Graduates working at Deloitte’s Irish offices saw huge success in professional exams in 2018 - the firm achieved 13% above the national average pass rate this year and a 94% pass rate overall. Furthermore, two of its people placed top in the country in their most recent exams.

Deloitte has also launched a new online self-assessment tool, Find Your Fit, which will help graduates to identify the area of the business that best suits their skills. Hopefuls can take the test online before submitting their application, giving them a better sense of which of Deloitte’s graduate programmes they should apply for.
