Attraction and recruitment of top talent

Our vision at Deloitte is to be a Magnet for Talent. In keeping with this vision, a variety of initiatives have been pioneered to ensure that we attract the right people, at the right time, into the right place.

The type of individual who is intuitively drawn to Deloitte is a different breed. It is someone who shares our vision and lives our values. We commemorate the uniqueness and diversity of our people.

Unification of recruitment efforts

In 2009 a strategic decision taken by the Executive Committee of Deloitte saw the unification of the firm’s recruitment initiatives under the leadership of Willem van der Post. From the second half of 2009, recruitment of talent for all of the business units in Deloitte are catered for by the OneDeloitte Recruitment team.

Audit Graduate Recruitment

Audit Graduate Recruitment (AGR) constitutes the largest component of the firm’s overall recruitment operations. This year our intake exceeded 350 candidates nationwide, all of whom have successfully completed their CTA/equivalent.

We constantly seek out the most talented individuals from universities across the country, and no effort is spared in ensuring that our audit practice is supplied with top drawer talent.

Experienced hires

Our experienced hires recruitment forms part of the national recruitment initiative. Exciting times lie ahead for this division, which now sees a talent advisor dedicated to each business unit looking after the tactical and strategic talent needs of each business. In light of a looming resurgence out of the economic downturn, our strategic growth targets and consequential need for talented individuals, this certainly is one of the spaces to watch.

Sourcing methodologies are being re-engineered and, with the ability to proactively identify talented individuals in the market, the firm will be empowered to not only grow its business-reach, but also to further cement the unique culture of Deloitte.

The trainee accountant experience: myJourneyCentre

One of the initiatives Deloitte has undertaken in the past year is the creation and launch of our “myJourneyCentre” concept for trainee accountants in Southern Africa.

myJourneyCentre opened its doors on 1 June 2009, dedicated locations in all Southern African offices of Deloitte. This is a really exciting trainee initiative that offers some fantastic interventions including career conversations and internal secondment opportunities.

The intent of myJourneyCentre is two-fold:

  • To help Deloitte trainee accountants identify and enhance their strengths and potential
  • To help Deloitte trainee accountants launch their business journey of a lifetime

myJourneyCentre is led by Jenefer Morgan, the CXO – Chief eXploration Officer.
In the first six months, 151 first year and 14 second year trainee accountants had a conversation with a Journey Guide about what makes them great.

myJourneyCentre has also sent 51 first years on Discovery Expeditions to other business units within Deloitte – to experience life outside of Audit, and what it means to live OneDeloitte.

Since its launch on 1 June to the end of September, myJourneyCentre has had 151 first years and 14 second years visiting to have a conversation with a Journey Guide about what makes them great.
