Great question Amy! and how long should it be?

Not sure if you are required to do a Power point (however, it might be different for technology), I did mine on an A4, with a copy for partner

It's for public sector audit...

You do not have to do a PP as you will not have the opportunity to present it on a screen. You may do it this way as you can then give a copy to the Partner. What the Partner is assessing is your communication skills rather than your PP ability! I think a hand-out is advisable but with the key information.

Perfect. Also, how long before the interview are we given the title of the presentation?

We send these out when we book in the interview! They change every 3 months!

Also for your partner interview, do some research around public sector audit rotations, the contracts currently won, the dates of their renewals etc (its public knowledge), and link try and link it with private sector audit work

Is there an easy way to access this data or is it a lot of googling?

Tax Associate, Deloitte

most of this information is in public domain, so shouldn't be too hard to find

Amy N.

I should get on that then. Brill thanks.

Is there a difference for the technology service line?

Tax Associate, Deloitte

no worries, good luck with your interview. These public sector audit engagements were privatised almost a year ago, so you might have to do a bit of digging though

Oh yippeee. I'm sure the dissertation can wait. Thanks for the tips :)

Lorna; I'm afraid I wouldn't know about technology service line (I am in GES), the reason I know about PSA is because I had an offer last year for PS Audit

No worries! Thanks Syed and Amy (for the question)!! Much appreciated!

What should the handout look like?

Hi there, it is not compulsory to give a hand out so it can look however you like! Think about the best way to present the information but remember you are not assessed on this. You are assessed on your ability to verbally present so spend your time preparing for this rather than a handout. Many Thanks, Leah
