After a prolonged period out of the work environment, we understand that you’ll need to bring your knowledge and skills up to date. To help bridge that gap, you will have the opportunity to create a professional development plan where you can identify skills that you need to refresh, from the suite of training that we offer.
We’ll also provide induction training to familiarise you with Deloitte, structured learning to enable you to use our everyday tools and software, and technical and regulatory training where required. You’ll also be assigned a Buddy, who will help you settle in and a coach to support your development for the duration of the programme.

14. Will I need to travel?
Some roles may require you to travel within the Netherlands. If that’s the case, it will be made clear to you during your recruitment conversations. During the course of the programme, some group training sessions may be held in various regional offices, so you might be asked to travel. We’ll give you advance notice so you can plan accordingly.
15. What days will I work?
The days and number of hours worked will be decided on an individual basis in collaboration with your line manager. During your onboarding programme and ongoing group training sessions, you may be required to work on days that you would not ordinarily work. You will be notified of all schedule training sessions in advance so you can plan accordingly.
You will be eligible for annual leave during the programme, in accordance with Deloitte’s holiday policy and procedures.
