Hi, so I have another question. I have been incredibly involved in extra-curricular activities/volunteering projects at uni. Would Deloitte have something similar to offer to its Graduates?

There are plenty of opportunities for that, and if there isn't something that you are keen to get involved in (any particular sport), you will be encouraged to take the initiative to start it

Where to begin with this one Sarah? We're hugely committed to a variety of community events, charity partnerships, volunteering opportunities and other activities. As Syed says, you can either get involved in something that already exists, or else ask the firm to support you (for example with matched funding etc) on new things. If you want to do it, the chances are you can do it here.

Thank you so much for your answer Syed and Steven! To follow up on that, is there a particularly successful or popular charity/volunteering opportunity?

Well, this year I am doing an event called Ride Across Britain for Charity. We invite clients along which makes it interesting. You will find offices have different initiatives running all year so when you join it is important that you tie win with regional teams looking after this.

We do so much, from helping children with their reading at local schools to national initiatives such as the Ride Across Britain that there is something that hopefully fits the time people have to give. And if it doesn't quite exist yet, you can be the one to start it. We're always looking for ways we can do more.

That sounds great! As I'm not a very good cycler, I'd definitely try to get involved in other activities, or perhaps start one should I be successful.
Thank you so much for the answers.
