How long do you normally spend in one department?

Hi Chris! I've been on the BrightStart scheme for two years now, I would say day to day life would completely depend on which department you're in and the nature of your work. For me, day to day life includes managing engagements and taking responsibility of them. I also attend client meetings with partners occasionally. At first there was lots of printing but now I help to draft client deliverables based on my experience!

Hi Chris, I sit within Risk Advisory which, in a nutshell, is a middle ground between Audit and Consulting. This means my day to day job can vary massively which is one of the main factors that I enjoy the most. I have been involved with both statutory audit work and advisory work; you'll find that you get given responsibility from the day you join but also a great support network if you ever need to ask questions.

Okay thanks for that! I have applied for the audit role. Could you give me a quick insight into what I would likely to be doing?

The audit role will vary depending on which group but our audit teams are split by industry (for instance there will be a team that focuses on consumer business) all of our audit roles on the brightstart scheme will study towards the ACA exams

Hi Chris, in Audit you'll be involved in external audit engagements, where you are doing work which is helping come to a decision whether Deloitte as a firm believes that the client's financial statements are accurate. You could be working on a massive variety of clients, from FTSE 100 companies to small charities. You will find that you learn a large amount about a number of different industries very quickly!

Okay, thanks for that! Just one more question regarding the qualifications: what type of support do the bright starters get regarding studying for them?

There is a lot of support available across the firm which can include study leave, exam managers, college time and there is a large support network internally who would have all been through the exams too who are very helpful :-)
