Hi everyone! I've been to several Deloitte events now, and I had been really convinced by the enthusiasm Deloitte show in their work. I have applied to the Risk Advisory role. However, I had been rejected as my visa ends in September, and the programme starts in Ocotber 2016. May I please know if there are any roles suitable for me (I do a degree course in BSc Actuarial Science), that allows me to transfer my visa.

Also, what is Deloitte's stand on Theresa May's £35,000 or deported policy?

Thank you.

Hi there, Unfortunately we do require VISA'a to be valid, at a very minimum, until October - this is across the board for our graduate opportunities im afraid.

Hi Nicole, thank you for your response. May I please know how does Deloitte stand on the £35000 salary or deported policy to be effective in April?

May I ask when is the graduate programme of technology consulting due to commence in the 2016 intake? Many thanks

This is something which has been taken into consideration by the firm, but i'm afraid I am not at liberty to discuss the firm as a whole's view on this.

It begins in September

Nicole, does this mean that if I apply for the technology consulting role, I would still need to have my visa expire in October?

Yes, we require the visa to be valid for a least one month after the start date of the grad programme. As all of our graduate programmes begin in September, all VISA's must be valid until October as a minimum.

Nicole, I am really interested in joining Deloitte, but unfortunately, that's my only Achilles heel. Is there any other track I can join Deloitte, e.g. starting an internship this summer before applying for the Graduate role? Or is this final and I won't have a chance?

May i ask what is your year of study at the moment?

DL L.

I am in my final year. Year 4. BSc Actuarial Science with First Class expected.

Thank you for confirming, Im afraid we only offer internships to those in their penultimate year of study - i do appreciate that this is disappointing news but i am afraid we are only able to accept applications if your Visa is valid until October.
