Audit International, the leading specialists in Internal and External Audit Recruitment across Europe, the US and Asia have known that the global leader firm providing audit, consulting, financial advisory, risk management, tax, and related services to select clients Deloitte, has promoted 75 new partners and added 35 new equity partners in the largest ever annual intake to the firm’s UK partnership.

Taking into account that nearly a third of the newly promoted partners are female (ten of whom were equity partners) at the minute, 17% of all Deloitte’s partners are women, up from 15% in 2014. The firm, has made a commitment that 25% of its partners will be female by 2020. A quarter of its executives and board members are female.

Chief executive and senior partner at Deloitte UK David Sproul, announced the launch of a new ‘return-to-work’ scheme which aims to attract more senior female leaders back into the workforce. Mr Sproul declared: “It is positive that this year, a higher proportion of our new partners are women” He also said:  “We are committed to continuing to do more to create more opportunities in Deloitte for women at a senior level.”

Mentioned ‘return-to-work’ scheme will run from September to December. It will offer a 12-week paid internship to women who have been out of the workforce for between three and six years. In the first year, it will be open to Deloitte alumni and the ambition is for 80% of participants to take up longer-term roles with the firm at the end of their internship.

At the beginning of the year, Deloitte’s US arm appointed Cathy Englebert as its first female chief executive. The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants hailed the appointment as a “momentous occasion for the profession”.
