Deloitte Audit BrightStart Scheme


Places are currently available on Deloitte’s Audit BrightStart Scheme. This is an excellent alternative route to University.

Paths to qualification

School leaver trainees within the Audit practice complete the Accounting Technicians Ireland qualification (ATI) followed by the Chartered Accountants Ireland qualification (ACA). The firm is committed to supporting students through this course of study and subsequent admittance to the institute not only by providing the competencies through the audit work but also fully supporting this course of study through their Professional Education support programme. This provides a mixture of study leave, tutorials, mock exams and additional internal support mechanisms such as an exam hotline.

Academic requirements

Deloitte look for a minimum of 260 UCAS points as well as evidence of a strong academic background through GCSEs (including at least a B in Maths and a C in English).
