    I have applied for a job at an accountancy firm during my gap year (deloitte) and I was wondering whether anyone could give me any advice for the interview. Are there any things that I could learn about that would be useful? The job role involves preparing tax returns. Is there any resources people know of where I can read about this sort of thing?

    Yep, for the Big 4 it is the most detailed information you are going to find about the process from your peers online

    I doubt you'll need technical knowledge to be honest.

    Make sure you know about the industry and recent events, your partner will grill you on that. www.accountancyage.com is a good site for that IMO. Other then that, be yourself and if you fit the bill you'll get a place. Best of luck.
