Hi there! I joined Deloitte in September 2012 after studying Mathematics at Kings College London. I spent around 18 months in the Real Estate Corporate Tax Department before moving to the Innovation Tax team in March 2014.
The size and scale of Deloitte and the opportunities it can afford are completely unrivalled outside the Big 4 –my choice to join Deloitte (having a couple of other offers on the table at the time) was down to the long term prospects afforded by Deloitte and the incredible experience on offer.
