    How much much research is usually required when you fill the career motivation question in a job application. Is it enough only doing research in company website? Currently in the progress of filling an application with Deloitte.

    Guys in order not to ask me I forgot to mention that all names used in my previous post are fictional and questions like Why Nottingham does not mean that I will be in the office. I am saying that to avoid questions why that office etc.

    Hi there I also got an offer so let me give you a bit more about the process as well. In general read Wiki Job and the comments here + contact someone from the company to tell you more about the process. Be proactive!

    The application - I advice everyone to attend one of Deloitte career events and ask for help and also your University career destination centre.

    The numerical test I heard that this year it might be changing but for 2014 I used assessment day and their tests and tips were useful.

    E-Tray:
    You know that the e-tray is in two parts.
    First part:

    My first suggestion is if you have not done it so far to practice the sample e-tray on Deloitte website. In that way you will gain some brief idea of how time pressuring the e-tray is.
    1st tip Open all the files one by one and minimise them.You have 3 folders as far as I remember the 1st one was some Corporate information about (GDT Group - the company you are senior project analyst/advisor in it and your main priority will be to advise the client - Trafford lea regarding their growth strategy. Your boss is George Barton. They have had very modest growth over the last couple of years and now they want to expand (either Regional expansion or throughout product diversification or acquisitions). The date was Monday 9.00 a.m 09.September. Second folder about TLB business & organization and finally the 3rd one about situations facing the business - competitors
    2nd Tip: be consistent. For example there are a lot of e-mail interrelated and if you have said that we must spend an additional XXX amount of money after that remember what you have said and confirm it.
    3rd Tip: Be careful who is sending you the e-mail is it your boss or the client. Because some of the information you will see on the top of the documents is confidential and you must not disclose it! (something that I forgot is that Trafford Lea are selling stationary & books)
    4rd Tip: Do not place random answers, be concentrated & there are some documents/attachments in the e-mail that are not going to be useful so ignore them
    5th Tip: Some questions that I remember:
    -There was one that you had to divide 1,500 hours/ number of hours required by employee something like that
    -Question to decide which workers are available. There are two files one with checklist of skills and one with availability just open both of them and check who is free and who is not.
    -How many days it will take to do a marketing report+financial analysis ( which I believe that I answered 10 days) after that you will have a second questions which states that there are 3 days preparation in addition so it was 13 days (excluding weekends) so be careful with the calendar as well !
    -You have two questions to refer a person of contact in one of the cases was from GDT (your company) in the second it was from the client (Trafford Lea). What you have to do is to go see the chart and refer to that person. For example: John Smith (Operational Manager) for operational purposes
    -There was a question in which region you must expand in - use your judgment and be consistent !
    -One question is asking to recommend a formula - staffing arrangement formula again be consistent and relate it to other files.
    - There was a question which distributor to choose ( i think one of them was Chinook)
    - One question for miscalculation against the estimated cost and actual cost.(Table of analysts + rates are relevant) Compare e-mail attachment with the document
    - One question - how many branches can TLB open = Budget/cost of opening a branch
    - One question how many staff will be required in each branch ( I believe I answered 4 people per branch (24 people in total)
    -Check also dates and hours on the e-mails !
    -Hatton books are their competitors
    - You will have 28 e-mails - 7 of them are with attachments (minimise the attachments as well you might use them later), 7 e-mails with no need to reply and 14 e-mails without attachments. Don't worry some of the e-mails are easy to read and easy to reply.
    -You must confirm a date of when the project will finish so use the calendar again
    -There was one question that you must say that you are going to do the task by yourself and after that in a second e-mail they will question you but confirm that you still want to do the task.
    In general the questions are: - do it yourself, come back to this later, delegate tasks.

    For the 2nd, Written e-tray:
    You can used the following structure. It is 40 mins only so work fast! You have three options the name of the companies are always different but just recognise pros and cons and put them in the order that is below and you will be fine with it.

    Dear XYZ,

    Hey there, I managed to get to the partner interview stage! This website definitely has one of the best communities I have seen so far.

    I am not from a finance related background and I am a bit struggling with what to include in my presentation. My topic is on the understanding of auditor Independence. I was wondering if anyone could guide me through how to structure my presentation? My interview is on Wednesday next week.

    Thanks a lot, and Happy New Year.

    Hey pday, congrats on making it to the Partner Interview Stage!

    I am not from an accounting background either, so I encountered a similar problem to you when it came to doing my presentation. Although I did not do my presentation on auditor independence I think there are some cross overs with the topic that I did.

    As the UK is moving further towards a more general global trend of have quarterly audits there is likely to be a more constant auditor presence in companies and relationships with clients will need to be strengthened as 99% of CEOs and CFOs already see auditors as a pain in the backside (don't say that!). So you need to consider the fact that client relationships need to be strengthened but independence needs to be assured at all times in able to retain the integrity and objectivity of the audit.

    With regards to structure, it is totally up to you. Be original. You only have 5-6 minutes to speak so you can never cover everything in that time, so I would suggest writing down everything you know about it, crossing out what is of least importance and then structuring what you have left to give you a natural flow through the presentation. Also leave subtle hints that you know more about something/not fully exploring it in the presentation due to time restrictions and that might lead your interviewer to ask you about it afterwards; try and dictate the questions you are being asked so you are fully prepared!

    One other piece of advice I would have for you is do NOT make a PowerPoint, have a handout or ANY notes if possible. This doesn't suit everyone but I heavily prepared then went in to the presentation during unaided and moved through my pre-determined structure at a pace dictated by the reactions of the interviewer. For example, she didn't seem overly keen on one thing I said so I quickly moved on. It makes you seem more natural and personable. My interviewer even told me that it was a welcome relief from the robotic presentations that she is normally given in interviews.

    Anyway, best of luck to you and if you're applying to the Birmingham office then I hope to see you in September :)

    I've applied for X Audit-London and just received an offer. This site was very helpful for me so I want to share my experience in the hope to help others.
    First, I want to say that I am not a native English speaker and X has been one of very few firms that offered me equal opportunities throughout the entire process, even though every single firm says that it doesn't discriminate people in any ways (there are many people at X from various cultures and they are all very happy to take you in irrespective of your culture or background => so if you are in a similar situation as mine don't be shy to apply to X).

    About the interviews:
    1) The first interview is pretty much competency based around Deloitte's core competencies. I was asked very similar questions with those written by other people on this site ( 1 time you held a presentation, you planned and organised a project, worked on a team, why audit, what is affecting the industry at the moment ). However I was asked only 1 question on each competency, but the interview lasted for 1 hour (maybe my answers were too long and the interviewer didn't have enough time to ask me 2 questions, as he had to interview another person immediately after me).

    2) The partner interview + presentation.
    My partner interview didn't follow a particular structure. I started talking about myself (CV stuff). Then we talked quite casually (i.e. the huge difference in the price of houses in the UK when compared with those in my home country). I remember he asked me one competency question ( tell me about a thing you are proud of ). Then, I held the presentation, was followed by very few questions not necessarily related to the topic. So the interview was more like a conversation. My best advice for this would be to take your time before answering a question and think about your best answer possible. I tend to rush into answering the question without reflecting on it and on many occasions I regret. For example, after the interview I felt that I could have given a so much better answer.

    Keep reading this site because all the information is valid and extremely helpful.
    Thank you to all the people who took from their time to help others!!!
    Hope this helps as well.

    Hey everyone, I was hoping some of you might be able to help me out because I am in a rather unique position. I originally applied for Audit Adivsory (Risk Consultancy) and had my 1st interview just over a week ago. They got back to me within 3 working days and said that they didn't think I was right for the job but because my interview was so strong that I could chose any service line I wanted and, provided that they had an opening, they would put me straight through to the Partner Interview. So I am now booked in for a Partner Interview in just over a week for Core Audit. Any general advice for the interview and the presentation? What topic have other people been given?

    91ddt I think you should call them definitely!!

    I have my partner interview tomorrow, I know it says not to take a pp or anything due to there not being a projector. But as it is only to one person do you think it would be okay for me to take my own laptop and have a prezi presentation on their? I have a printed handout of power point slides to give them after but I thought this would give them something to look at. Do you think this would be okay?


  • 5 November 2013 - 10:51pm
    • 91ddt

    This question isn't about Audit but I thought I'd ask anyway. I've just done the Service Line Questionnaire and I was only offered one option for what I am interested in. Does this mean that all the other service lines are full?
    Because now I've been offered an interview based on a service line I don't really know that much about. Do you think I should call them and have a chat, maybe see if the service line is still being offered in other offices?

    Hi all,

    I have made it through to the final round at Deloitte, and am beginning to get a bit nervous about pre employment checks: I had an internship going on 7 years ago for an office that no longer exists. I have no way of proving it, given that it was so long ago, but I stupidly included it on my CV.

    Does anyone know if this will be checked? How many previous employers/what time period of employment is checked for graduates? Should I let HR know before I receive an offer?

    Thanks for your help!!

    Hi, I found your post really helpful.
    I have an interview on Tuesday for the Audit graduate scheme and have been preparing some answers.
    I had the interview for the tax summer scheme but didn't get it so have an idea of what the interview will be like.
    I was wondering what type of answers you gave for your competences in particular achievement of goals, adaptability and problem solving. As I feel the answers I have prepared may not be strong enough, thanks.

    Hi, I have just passed the numerical reasoning test and I have moved onto the etray email activity. I failed at this stage when trying for a Deloitte internship and so I would really appreciate any tips/guidance by people who have passed this stage.

    wyzgz, they will just close the application system for London Audit by then.
    I guess this means they have enough applicants now so all of us will get an interview. I was told it's busy in Audit now and that I will get my date soon.

    Oh right, I guess they'd want to get through the audit ones first then. I'm applying for tax. To be honest they gave me a date in August that I couldn't make but they still haven't arranged a new one.


  • 2 October 2013 - 1:53pm
    • fiksi

    Which number did you call people? I am also waiting... hope what solid said is true. They are closing London Audit in 2 days, so I assume they will give us all an interview. Also, how can I choose if I go for fast track or not?


  • 2 October 2013 - 3:14pm
    • wyzgz

    Hi fiksi, what do you mean by 'They are closing London Audit in 2 days'? I applied to London Audit and got invitation to interview last week however I rearraged it because I wasn't prepared, now still waiting for next slot

    ^^ When did you guys apply?

    I applied at the start of July for 2014 intake and still have no interview date. Are you applying for 2014 or for fast track?


  • 2 October 2013 - 1:31pm
    • Jsss

    Applied end of Aug and had first interview after 4 weeks. So Deloitte didnt take long in replying. Im also applying for 2014 audit. You should ring them, shouldnt have taken this long.

  • 1 October 2013 - 9:38pm
    • solid_545

    Or does that mean we will to the financial audit, but also give advice on their transactions + processes (which is what they perhaps mean by transaction advisory)....when i hear transaction i think of corporate finance and their transaction services????

    I hope im not too confusing lol


  • 1 October 2013 - 10:11pm
    • Jsss

    From my understanding the audit service line is split into banking and capital markets, consumer businesses, energy and resources, infrastructure services and real estate, insurance, and so on. When is was asked what service line and why, i said that the service line questionnaire suggested audit for me but that is too broad so i said core audit and then particularly attracted to consumer businesses as they worked in manufacturing, leisure, retail, and professional services firms and PL FOOTBALL CLUBS which made the interview laugh. So a chance to get rid of the awkwardness in the beginning. lol

  • 1 October 2013 - 10:34pm
    • solid_545

    Hmm i think for london you have to specialise to work in a particular industry...but regional you work with clients in all industries?

    The service line questionairre gave 3 options which i saw was - core audit/Risks&Regulations/Financial services...i got an email saying audit was my ideal service line

    So im just confused how its all being split...what about public audit? internal audit? etc...where do these come in?

  • 1 October 2013 - 9:22pm
    • solid_545

    Hello,

    Please can you help me. I have a first interview and really am struggling to understand how deloitte have split the audit service line...

    Is their audit service line split into : Core audit/Public sector/Financial services/Risks&Regulations/Entrepreneurial business...? or have i got that wrong?

    Also under 'audit' on their website it says
    "Our Audit practice delivers to clients audit assurance, advisory and transaction advisory services. "

    so in the job we will be doing advisory and trasaction advisory jobs as well? thats not audit though?

    • Jsss

    I had that, i thought i was going to get a call for an interview, but one week after my etray i went on the recruitment site and instead of 'no slots available' it said 'book interview' so i guess its done online and i'd say just keep checking for it to change to 'book interview!

    Hi wyzgz. I got an email two days after my interview to tell me that I had been unsuccessful. I was pretty disappointed, especially since I thought it went ok. Wish they would give feedback. I just need to focus on other applications now. I don't come from an accounting or business degree, so my knowledge of audit is definitely limited.

    • wyzgz

    Hi solid_545, I think we are in the exactly same boat! I have also been waiting for over one month for my first interview and my status is 'invite to fast track day'. I asked the HR last week and they just told me to wait. Did you also receive the message of invitation to fast track day after submittion of application form without online tests and e-tray? I'm quite confused about that because most people seem to have both online tests and e-tray before progressing to the interviw. do you have any ideas about it?

    Many thanks!

    Hi jjss912, congratulations on your offer! may I ask how long it took for you to get the offer? I applied for 2013 intake last November however was on hold until this March when they told me the roles had alredy been filled. I then applied to 2014 intake at the end of July and am on hold again until now. I applied to Financial Services audit by the way.

    I had my first interview yesterday and these forums helped me a lot, so I thought I would share my experience. Every competency question I received was one that I had read on here previously, so there was nothing that I hadn't prepared for. The only questions I slightly stumbled on were some of the follow up questions, but overall I think it went quite well.

    The questions I was asked: 1 example of giving a presentation, 1 example of working in a team, 2 examples of achieving goals, 2 examples of planning and organising something, 2 examples of decision making, explain what auditing is in layman's terms, tell me what you know about the ACA, what do you think you will be doing in your first year, why Deloitte over other big 4, what issues are currently facing Deloitte and other professional services firms.

    The follow up questions to the first competencies were pretty simple e.g. What would you do differently if you had to do it again? What did you learn from the experience? How have you implemented this since?

    The questions that I stumbled on were things like how can Deloitte mitigate the issues that it faces? Also, he seemed to push me on details about audit to see how much I knew about it. He asked me what kind of financial statements would be analysed, what the audit tests involved and what dynamics were needed to work in audit, but I'm not sure how much he was really expecting me to know. The interview lasted just over an hour. It was pretty hard to gauge how well I did, so I just have to wait for an email now.

    Hi da93, hope you can pass the interview. do you study for an accounting/business related degree?

    hi @haseeb448, sorry i didn't read your post earlier. i think you should refer to their requirements page :https://mycareer.deloitte.com/uk/en/university/apply-now/academic-requirements
    If you suit their minimum requirements, I do not see any problem at all. However, if you do, you may still get a chance. The best thing is simply to ring the Deloitte HR and you will get all you need I believe.

    Hope that helps. Cheers mate!

    Hey Guys
    I jus had my first interview with Deloitte for audit graduate program (2014) @ Manchester Office. Wikijobs helped me a lot in preparing for the interview so i thought i would return the favour.

    My interview was very structured. my interviewer had already written the questions that she wanted to ask me on her notepad. I know this because i could see the questions. she told me that she will ask me five main compentencies and for each competencies needed to give two examples. She then went on to ask me specific questions about each competencies.
    Planning and Organising - Give me a time you had to plan an event? Give me another time you have to plan and organise something?
    Communication. Give me a time when you had to do a presentation? Give me a time when you had to work in a team?
    Goal Orientation - When have you achieved a personal goal? Give me another time when you have achieved a goal?
    Commercial awareness and career motivation - What do you know about ACA? how prepared do you think you are for ACA? Why Audit? Why Deloitte? Tell me something recent in the news and the effects it has on a professional service firm such as deloitte?
    Judgement - Give me a time when you have solved a problem? Give me a time you have made a big decision?

    One thing i wasn't prepared for was the amount of follow up questions my interviewer was asking me. for example, for the presentation question, she wanted specific details about how i structured my presentation? who exactly was my audience? what i learnt from the experience? etc so be prepared for this. it is really had to prepare for follow up question but im telling you now so that it doesn't throw you off during your interview.

    i should hear back from deloitte in about 3 working days. so hopefully i progress to the next stage.

    If you do have an interview coming up. my main advise are prepare for 2 answers for each competencies and jus be urself on the day. i had a very friendly interviewer and i was able to crack a few of jokes with her. hopefully it was enough to win her over. good luck guys. if you need any more information about the etray or interview process let me know. i am very happy to help

    Hi Olasensi, thanks for the tips they are really helpful. From your first interview, do you remember whether there were any questions relating to Adaptability, as it appears to be a competency on the Deloitte website, but none of those interviewed mention whether they were questioned on this?

    Also, can you tell me how much time it took for you to prepare for the first and second stage interview?
