Deloitte hires 100 school leavers

Rising university fees helps persuade Deloitte to increase school leaver recruitment

DELOITTE is to hire 100 school leavers in recognition that the hike in university fees will deter many top students from going on to higher education.

A statement from the firm said that the professions needed to open up to a wider group of people and that rising tuitions fees could make “some very bright people think twice about going to university”.

Kohn Kerr, managing partner for talent at Deloitte, said: “Talent is the lifeblood of a business like our and it is crucial that we do all we can to ensure that talented young people with the ability to succeed can find their way into Deloitte, whatever their background.”

Deloitte’s new Bright Start programme will sees the school leavers join the firm in September 2011.

The firm is also increasing the number of summer places it has for graduates to 160.
