Deloitte business consultancy academy opens 50 new graduate spots

  • Deloitte has opened 50 new spots in its Transformation, Finance and Technology Assured Skills academy in Belfast. The deadline for applications is May 24th 2019.

    People come from a wide range of backgrounds to get their start in business consultancy, and getting exposure to the latest technology and methods can help business consultants stay at the top of their field. The tech sector moves at a rapid pace, and those who don't keep their training up to date risk their experience becoming out of date.

    Deloitte Academy is now offering 48 new graduate training opportunities in this area as part of the Assured Skills programme. The Deloitte Transformation, Finance and Technology Assured Skills is open to all graduates with a 2:2 degree in any subject and requires no previous business consultancy experience, making it a great opportunity for those looking to upskill into a new career role.

    The scheme is supported by the Department for the Economy as part of the Assured Skills programme, meaning that every person who completes the course successfully is guaranteed a job interview with Deloitte at the end of the course. Topics covered will include project management, agile and creative working processes, technology essentials, and creating business processes.

    The course will be delivered by Belfast Metropolitan College and takes 7 weeks, with applications open from now until until Friday May 24th 2019. Applicants must also be available for interview between June 3rd and June 14th, and training begins on Monday 1st July.

    Ann Williamson, Head of Employer Skills at the Department for the Economy, commented on the scheme, saying: "This Assured Skills Academy offers an excellent opportunity to graduates who are looking to gain the skills they need to start a career in business consultancy The Department’s Assured Skills Academies are a result of business engaging with the Further and Higher Education sectors to upskill the local workforce."
