We provide confidence in their financial reporting by assessing and providing insights on the organisation processes and controls, resulting in enhanced capabilities, efficiency, cost reduction, reduced risk, and improved performance.
What do you love about working in Business Assurance?
Businesses across the globe recognise that Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is a strategic imperative that enhances brand value, attracts investment, and supports talent management.
Working within our Business Assurance’s ESG practice provides a strong connection between my professional capabilities and the purpose of doing good for the planet and our society.
I feel privileged to be part of these initiatives, changing the world for the better while delivering value for companies through innovation, productivity, and driving business success.
Tell us about some of the key skills you utilise in your role
My role requires a lot of different skills, including a lot of critical thinking, project management and leadership skills, as well as strong communication. These skills help me develop and execute our ESG strategies, from developing new service offerings to executing and managing ESG engagements.
Through this role, I also have the opportunity to enhance my facilitation, design, and systems thinking skills – which helps a lot in coordinating and collaborating with our diverse stakeholders and topics.
What enables you to bring your ‘best self’ to work every day?
I’m fortunate to have the ability to do job crafting in my current role. This means I’m able to take proactive actions to design my work, evaluate its impact and make positive changes. This enables me to create meaningful connections between purpose and career, helping me to develop high-value ESG offerings, inspire team members, and develop potential.
Deloitte Experience (DX) empowers our people to make choices about where they work based on their client, team, and individual needs and how they connect with their clients and each other.
Our market-leading flexible work policy now includes 12 flexible working options, including wellbeing days, cultural leave, and allowing our people to shape their working day outside of the traditional 9-to-5!
How do you utilise Deloitte’s flexible ways working in your day to day?
I use PlaceFlex, MicroFlex and TimeFlex from time to time at Deloitte.
PlaceFlex allows me to do my work at different places, from our Deloitte office, the client site, my home, or even at a hotel during business travels.
I also use MicroFlex and TimeFlex. In my current role, I have a lot of engagements and coordinate with our global team and overseas member firms. The TimeFlex and MicroFlex allow me to balance my work and life schedule. For example, if I have late-night work calls with the global team or other member firms, I can start a bit later or finish a bit earlier the next day.
