Deloitte introduced a work-based learning apprenticeship programme in 2015 and, to date, 74 learners have joined a programme providing more opportunities outside of traditional accountancy-type roles to young people who may not previously have considered a career in the industry.

It is helping to change the misconception that top level finance jobs are reserved for those with university degrees with the programme guaranteeing that successful apprentices have a permanent job in their area of work, and the opportunity to continue their vocational education.

“As an employer we are aware that improving social mobility is one of the UK’s biggest challenges. We are committed to helping young people succeed, whatever their background, and ensure this is reflected in our approach to recruitment and development.”
