Good afternoon everyone, thank you for this initiative. I am applying to Deloitte for a summer internship in Consulting. I am particularly interested in asking two things: first of all, what do you think was your unique selling point, that made you suitable for a career in Deloitte? But also, what do you think was Deloitte's unique selling point, namely what made you choose to apply to Deloitte? Thank you all in advance!

Hi Francesca. I don't necessarily think you need a unique selling point, I think it's more important to be a well rounded person that fits in with the firm's culture

Deloitte's selling point - the people, the expertise, the name, the training. It's not a unique point but was a few factors for me.
Also agree with Amber

Hi Francesca I am afraid we do not have any positions within Consulting SVS for 2014, please can I ask what year of study are you in? We have other roles that may be of interest.

Thank you! I am in my second year of university and I am currently focusing on possible summer work experiences in Deloitte in Italy. Do you know about any other possibilities which would be interesting for me in London?

How strong should my skills in IT be to be suitable for a career in Risk Consulting? I am currently studying economics and management

We do not require a IT background for our risk consulting teams - the main thing is good communication skills as the role involves explaining complex issues to clients in a simple manor

What is the main feature of a career in Risk Consulting then? For instance, I associate Strategy Consulting mostly with M&A and cutting costs if that's correct. What would be the main association for Risk Consulting?

Risk Consulting is split into several different areas but not by industry for instance the teams you can expect to work with are Data Analytics, Resilience, Governance & Compliance and Technology Risk
