    Hi I’m an International Audit BrightStart at Deloitte and as apprenticeships are on the rise I thought I’d start a thread for anyone looking for any more information on the scheme / tips for applying etc

    The application process has changed since I first started, but they will expect you to have an interest in the stream you’re applying for. They will probably ask scenario based questions based on business dilemmas (overwhelmed with tasks what do you do, manager asking you for stuff you can’t do etc) just be honest in your approach and research the service line!

    If you don't mind me asking - were your A'level grades significantly higher than the minimum requirement? How do you think the selection process is weighted - personal interview / various selection tests? Did you find all candidates that made the final cut were brimming with self-confidence and a cv packed with extra curriculum activities with leadership roles? It seems that employers want these as standard now - where does that leave the late developers ?

    I needed BCC and I got ABC so I wasn’t too far over. I definitely think the interview is what matters most, the director really liked me so that’s what secured the position for me he offered me it there and then. I don’t have much self confidence, I do however have people skills so I think if you have that you should be okay and confidence will develop. My CV did include some extra things yes but other candidates I’ve spoken to did not, so I don’t think you need to have multitasked a million extracurricular things. You need to understand your skill set and utilise it instead of trying to do something you’re not good at. Hope this helped
