Who is Deloitte looking for?

Individuals who have taken a career break of 18 months or more (as of September 2024), with experience in professional services, technology, accountancy, tax, consulting, or risk management. You may have been working on a small-scale basis to fit around your other commitments or have not done any paid work for several years. Each Deloitte business area will have different additional criteria for the experience and skills they are looking for, according to the roles available. You must have the right to work in Ireland. Check out the various opportunities on Deloitte’s website here

If you believe that you don’t meet all the criteria above but have a strong skill set and experience, Deloitte encourages you to apply to the programme, but bear in mind that you must have the right to work in Ireland to do so.
