Parents of Successful PWC Applicant 2017
Deloitte has designed an application process to find talented people like you who could demonstrate workable skills as defined in their key competencies criteria page. The Deloitte graduate scheme selection process is summarized below:
Step 1: Applicant completes a Registration Form
Step 2: Takes online Psychometric Aptitude Test
Step 3: Attend First Competency Based Interview
Step 4: Attend Deloitte Final Assessment Centre
Step 5: Successful Applicant will receive a job offer
The complete application process is also summarised on the Deloitte website.
Deloitte has set four types of recruitment test to assess each applicant before offering the job. These test are applicable to more or less all graduate and school leaver applicants. For experienced routes the test are less grilling only to some extent.
Deloitte has designed all the recruitment test with the help of external companies ‘Talent Lens’, ‘Kenexa’ and ‘Cubiks’, the occupational psychology specialists. The aim of such rigorous assessment is to ensure the whole recruitment process is relevant to the specific vacancy, consistent across the firm and become an overall useful recruitment process. Deloitte recruitment team has worked hard for the last 10 years to develop such an impressive recruitment process.
Deloitte has kept a clear view to impress applicants in the whole process by making the recruitment process an informative, interactive learning and enjoyable skill development exercise for the candidates. Read more.

Each applicant is assessed against Deloitte core competencies during the four stage recruitment process. For ease of reference we have highlighted main competencies at the end of this section.
Deloitte has set specific priorities of testing these competencies at each of the four stages. They believe that these core competencies are a framework which lays out a success pattern for graduate entrants at Deloitte.
It is assumed by Deloitte that if an applicant could demonstrate such skills and competencies during the four assessment stages successfully then they’d automatically become a perfect match for the firm.
If you could demonstrate the right skills set for each of the four stages’ exercises and obtain certain PASS MARKS in each of the assessments then you will secure a job in Deloitte. It is really as simple as that. From our specific practice material you will learn the right skill set to obtain the maximum marks per competency per stage.
Green Turn has researched for the past 11 years to genuinely understand the Deloitte application process’s pass marks structure. Please read our material for further details. Read more.
There are roughly 1,400 full time trainee positions available at Deloitte. If you meet the firm’s minimum entry level academic requirements then you are eligible to apply to the firm. The trainee vacancies are open to UK residents as well as to overseas nationals.
Deloitte treats all the applicants fairly against the set criteria. Deloitte strongly believes in diversity and equal opportunities policy, so every applicant has an equal chance of securing a job with Deloitte.
Deloitte receives hundreds of thousands of trainee position applications every year. However only a handful circa 1,400 applicants would successfully receive trainee job offers.
If you demonstrate the required skills and ‘certain capabilities’ during the assessment stages then, you could also receive a job offer from Deloitte. Read more.
The first step to your success is to objectively assess yourself, your skills and capabilities against the core competency skills required by Deloitte. If you have practiced such skills and have demonstrated these specific capabilities regularly say for example in your existing job then there is a chance that you will do well at all of the Deloitte assessment exercises.
On the other hand if you are uncertain about your own capability level, you do not know the pass and fail criteria for each of the assessment test and exercises, and you have not prepared for the Deloitte assessment test, then you would not perform well in all the four stages recruitment test.
It is then more likely that you would face rejection earlier in the assessment stages, which is the case with 90% of the applicants! Read more.
Some of the following situations might look familiar to you?
a. You’re perhaps not fully aware of the objective for each of the four stage assessments’ exercises
b. Not aware of the relevant competencies tested at each of the four stage assessments
c. Not aware of the PASS or FAIL marking scheme criteria for each of four stage assessments
d. You have exhausted yourself by searching on the web and currently relying to secure your job with Deloitte based on the little known knowledge you’ve gathered
e. You have developed a ‘false hope’ by practicing irrelevant and generic exercises / test from the web and are under the impression that you will pass Deloitte tailored assessments without any tailored preparation
f. You have not practiced any mock exercises and test similar to Deloitte assessments
g. You are under false impression that you’d pass Deloitte assessments by a miracle and thus don’t need to practice
If you find yourself in above situations then it is quite rare to succeed in all of the Deloitte four assessment stages at the first attempt. You are in the same boat as any other unprepared applicants. You will need to do a lot more relevant test practice to become ‘Usain Bolt’.
Without a doubt you’d need to practice relevant material and make an informed effort to prepare for each of the Deloitte recruitment test rigorously before attempting the real Deloitte assessment test as only then you will succeed in all of the Deloitte four stages assessment test and be able to secure a job with Deloitte.
