Hi Zakariya. Great skills for consulting would be a passion to learn, great people skills and being able to think outside of the box. You don't need specific consulting work experience however any experience you've had at university or in part-time work would be helpful. In your interviews you'll be asked to demonstrate how you have these skills so it's worth having a think of any examples you can.

Great, very helpful. Thank you


No problem!

Is consulting client-facing in clients' office or only based on home office? Thank you. I think I am a person who is passionate to learn, have good people skills and be able to think outside of the box, however I prefer to work mainly in the office rather than go to clients' office everyday even though I do not mind travelling, if not frequently.


Hi Emily. Most of our work is done at client site, typically Monday - Thursday at the site and Friday at a Deloitte office. There are some roles however, particularly those within Deloitte's Cyber Intelligence where the work is done mostly from a Deloitte office
