Deloitte Scholarship for Jess
Jess Crabtree, an old girl of Stamford High School, is currently gaining an insight into the world of work and greatly enhancing her CV after being awarded a place on the prestigious Deloitte Scholar Scheme.
The scholarship scheme with Deloitte, one of the UK’s ‘big four’ international professional services firms, allows students to combine travelling during their gap year with invaluable paid work experience and an on-going financial scholarship throughout university.
It was following a talk at Stamford High School that Jess decided to apply for the scholarship. During the application process Jess completed online tests, a telephone interview, an assessment centre and an interview at the company’s London HQ.
Jess was successfully awarded one of the 40 places on the very competitive scheme and is currently undertaking seven months' salaried work in London. This involves secondments with high-profile clients including Santander, Morgan Stanley, Orient Express Holidays and TalkTalk.
Following this, Jess will receive a bursary towards travelling as well as four weeks guaranteed paid work and a bursary for each year of university. There is no commitment to join the company as a graduate, but Jess will have the option to be fast-tracked through the application process if she chooses.
Many congratulations to Jess on her success.
