Deloitte recruitment campaign targets UOWD students

Sunday, 14 April, 2013

Representatives of Deloitte, one of the ‘big four’ accountancy firms, have visited the University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) on their campaign to recruit new talent to their graduate training scheme.

The Deloitte Professional Development Program is a scheme for new graduates looking to enter a career in accounting and related disciplines. The Program offers a three year scholarship, during which trainees work towards becoming chartered, certified professionals, accredited by the ACCA, the global body for professional accountants.

Deloitte visited UOWD as part of their initial screening process for the Program which, for successful candidates, will be followed by an assessment centre and a final interview with a company Partner.

Dennis Abdon, Assistant Human Resources Manager for Deloitte UAE, External Audit Division said, “We are here to select top performing individuals who have the potential to be future managers or even partners of the firm. This is an annual process we go through with UOWD, who are a priority university for us because of the talent that exists here. We already have participants on the program who are graduates of UOWD and we hope to find more prospective candidates today.”
