I received an offer for a position in September 2009 on Friday. I have been sent an email confirming this with the main details of my contract. Does anyone know when i will receive the offer letter itself?
In theory within a week, in practice could be two.
I got an offer last friday as well but it did not contain any details of my contract. I was told that the offer letter was posted last thursday but still has not arrived. I may call them tomorrow as I'm sure the post doesn't take that long!
What details of your contract was sent to you Jerk?
snap! i have not received any letter either although someone from grad rec rang up to ask me when i was free to attend an Offer Day.
i received an email on Friday telling me my salary, holidays etc as a preview to the offer letter arriving
I had my interview last Tuesday, and had the offer letter by the Friday. Have just recieved confirmation that they've recieved it and that they'll contact me about 3 months before I start (so about June 2009ish) about references etc.
What's this about an offer day?
hey i had my recieved my offer on a tuesday and the the documents were sent out 10 days later...it usually takes between 7 -10 days!
Just out of curiosity, how much are the paying? (audit? London?)
chellamae, Chris1007, Jerk, hits123 - congratulations!!! Also out of curiosity, did you apply to audit? i am just surprised by the number of people who received offers in the last couple of weeks, i hope they still haven't filled up all the places :)
I applied to Tax at Gatwick.
please could you share your experience of the whole recruitment process from your perspective? ie Tax? I find that most of the advice I see are geared towards audit. Thanks
That was aimed at Chris1007
I got a job in Enterprise Risk Services, which i doubt many people have heard of!
does anyone know that if you have extenuating circumstances for alevels.. do they go through the formality of verifying ur extenuating circumstances again after they offer you the job?
i know they verify it in the first stage of your application.. but do they do so again after they offer you the job?
Don't think they verify anything until then. It's much easier to verify 20 graduates who got through than 1000 applications.
hey hits123, i've offered a job in enterprise risk services as well! i'll be in the london office u?
yep london office - have you graduated?
thanks.... Has anyone done any Tax interview? It would be much appreciated if you could share your experience.
Thanks in advance
The Tax first interview is very similr to the Audit one. They'll ask you to give examples of each competency area and then the usual ones of why Deloitte, why Tax, what do you think you'll be doing etc.
Final Assessment day is similar still, where you'll do the same e-tray exercise and report, and be taken out to lunch. The partner interview will depend completely on the partner interviewing you. At mine she just asked me more questions on my example competencies, again with why Tax/Deloitte/this office? And I also got some general business competency questions such as to name a firm that's doing badly at the moment and what 5 things would you change if you were in charge, who do you think Deloittes competitors are (for each service line) etc.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the posts here, they are very helpful. I have my tax assessment day coming up, and I am quite nervous about it!
In the email I received confirming the a/c, they said that I would complete the e tray exercise, one interview, and have lunch with the current graduates...
Does anyone know if: - the lunch with the graduates is assessed in any way, and plays any part in your overall success. - why there was no mention of a group exercise/written exercise, does tax not do this or are they planning to spring it on me?! - any other partner interview questions that I may be asked.
Any help would be amazing. Thanks guys.
Londoer31 you have a tax assessment day coming up? when did you apply? The HR lady I spoke to confirmed that the team exercise is only for people who apply for consultancy so do not be worried about that. Please keep us informed. thanks
Londoner31, you will have a written exercise as part of the e-tray assignment, there shouldn't be a group task.
As for the lunch, it's officially off the record, it's a chance for you to find out what it's really like to work there and to train etc. However general feedback may be given to the manger/partner such as if they thought you were nice, or if they got the impression you weren't particularly keen on the job/service line/office etc. I heard about someone who spent the whole lunch asking questions about how quickly they could transfer to the London Office rather than work at the regional office they'd applied for, which got passed back to the manager/partner, needless to say they didn't get the job. Generally though you needn't worry about the lunch as they're not going to pass much back unless you're completely horrible.
Good luck with everything!
Thanks Chris and Lobvot
I applied back in August, and have my assessment in 2 weeks, why do you ask? Is it strange that I have a tax assessment day coming up?
Thanks for all the advice, it really does help. I think its the partner interview I am most nervous about now!
Glad to hear your success and congratulations! I am currently at the stage of filling out the application form. And I am applying for a tax position as well. Would you please give me some tips or what to say in the motivation part. especially the last one what's the day to day work like in the tax division.

many thx in advance
I was just wondering how long it took you to get to that point because I am yet to get feedback from DELOITTE after submitting the form. But then I did this last week. All the other people that i'd heard had received offers or were somewhere along the recruitment process on other divisions. How did you find the interview process? Was it very tax specific?
Has anyone had a consulting assessment centre with Deloitte? I have one coming up, Im very nervous, any help would be great!
Just to confirm, are we required to provide two examples for each competency areas during the first interview? Anyone been to the Investment Services interview? Thumbs up to those who got the offer! I am really impressed!! Congratulations!
Yes, you will need two examples to each competency area. And they may well change the wording of each question, so make sure your competencies are all adaptable enough.
Does anyone know of any groups, facebook etc for Deloitte London Audit grads starting in september 2009, would be nice to get a little bit of chat goin.
Ollie - potentially you could start a thread on here, or if you wanted to, start a wiki "group" in the Deloitte section and see what happens!
Hello Ollie204, I start in London in Autumn 2009 working for ERS (which falls under the Audit team). Do you know the start date for next year? is it early september, late septmember or october?
Just going through the thread and what Chris said just clicked about Deloitte's competitors. Isnt this easily answered by saying that these are the other big 4 firms? or is there more to it?
I had my final interview on a Tuesday (Audit Entrepreneurial Business), received a call on a Wednesday and had my letter on a Friday or so... I guess it might depend on the office and how busy they are. Anyhow. Thanks to people in this forum because it helped me an awful lot. I also used the TSR careers forum and I posted my experience there.. it's a really long post though.
Hi I just got an offer from Deloitte to do audit in Birmingham. I’m still waiting for the offer letter to arrive and it seems to be taking ages :) does anyone know the start date for 2009? Is it September?
for consulting: i had the assessment centre on a thursday...was called on friday morning (the next day with an offer)...and had the offer letter arrive in the post two working days later (so on tuesday)
Hi hits123.. I have my second interview with Deloitte for the ERS position in a few weeks. How was the overall interview process? Can you give me some details on the partner interview.. was it comfortable or stressful? and is the lunch interview an assessed one or is it informal? How did you do the e-tray exercise and the presentation after that..
I'm currently also working for ERS. I applied last September and found the information contained in this thread really helpful (http://www.wikijob.co.uk/forum/accounting-professional-services/deloitte-audit-london-getting-job)
The partner interview was (in my experience) a lot less stressful than the first! It is basically to see if the partner likes you and thinks you'll fit into their team. The lunch is really informal and relaxed.
hello do you have any info about deloitte tax. Am about to apply for the 2010 Tax. I need help with the passing the application stage
hey guys, can you guys tell me what the starting salary for london audit is?
yeh can someone post info about starting salary..........
what are the sub-divisions within Audit that you can choose?
By subdivisions do you mean this:
My offer for a position in audit in Nottingham said that the pay had yet to be set. However, the starting salary last year was £20,500 with £600 benefits.
I can't help you if you're in London though sorry.
