Sixth Form Economists at Deloitte
On Friday 3 November, 24 enthusiastic RGS students arrived at the Deloitte offices on Little New Street, right in the heart of the city. We are extremely thankful to former RGS pupil (’92) and current parent, James Alexander – Partner, Risk Advisory, for organising and hosting the day.
The day was a unique opportunity for students to gain an insight into an International multi-faceted business. James kicked the proceedings off by talking about his role within the business, his journey after leaving RGS and some of the more interesting and diverse projects that he has worked on during his time at Deloitte.
Students were also lucky to be given an insight into the Deloitte recruitment process and some key tips to help with the extensive and popular application process. With the hindsight and advice of a successful graduate that had recently joined via this route – the message was ‘preparation is key!’ Finally, students were set an interactive business game, carrying out SWOT analysis of large multinational companies ranging from Netflix to M&S and the various Economic factors that could affect their success.
Our enormous thanks go to James Alexander for his help in arranging this great day for the current crop of future Economic and Business leaders!
