Deloitte named Graduate Employer of the Year 2018

Professional services and consulting firm picks up four awards in total at annual gradireland awards

Deloitte is pleased to announce that it has been named Graduate Employer of the Year at the gradireland Graduate Recruitment Awards 2018. The firm toasted quadruple success at the awards – in addition to being named overall winner, it won the Best Innovation on Campus award and also received the silver award in the Best Graduate Training and Development Programme category and the bronze award in the Best Graduate Recruitment Website category.

The firm won the award for Best Innovation on Campus for its new mobile-enabled application and assessment process that allowed graduates to gain insights into the role and responsibilities of a graduate at application stage. This allowed Deloitte to build brand engagement through a significantly improved user experience, therefore bringing greater diversity to its graduate recruitment process by assessing fit with the firm at application stage.

At Deloitte, we recognise that success in the workplace comes in many different forms and so are committed to providing a challenging but inclusive and enjoyable workplace and career path where graduates can develop and grow as successful individuals.”

Deloitte’s Chief Human Resources Officer, Orla Graham said: “Our focus is on developing leadership capabilities in all our people and give them the chance to experience and realise the careers they aspire to. Our programme allows graduates to grow with us and achieve their career goals. Therefore in addition to being named top graduate employer of the year, it is great to have our training and development programme recognised.”
