The article presents information on the gap-year programme at Deloitte. According to Sarah Shillingford, a graduate recruitment partner at the professional services firm, the scheme, which takes on 70 school leavers a year, is most valuable for recruiting people on university campuses. Under the programme, students do paid work for Deloitte for seven months then receive a bursary of £1,500 to travel for the other five. They then do four weeks of paid work in the firm each year while at university.
