Emil Garayev, Senior Manager, Tax & Legal department

Deloitte is where my professional career began. I joined the company in 2006, right after graduating with a Master’s degree in Law from Baku State University. I only expected to stay for a year or two, because at that time information about the Big Four firms was not as widespread at my alma mater or among my circle of friends. And yet here I am, a Senior Tax Manager, after eight challenging years. And why have I stayed for so long? Because Deloitte has so, so much to offer – it is a true culture of opportunity, where everyone has a shot.

At Deloitte, I found that I had the freedom and flexibility to grow, not only in terms of my career, but also in other areas of life. At Deloitte, I discovered the values that I hold dear to this day. At Deloitte, you find yourself being challenged on a daily basis, but are constantly supported by your firm and constantly learning from your clients.

The opportunities and the satisfaction that my work gives me are immense. Every morning I wake up with a smile and look forward to starting the day. I think my enthusiasm comes from the fact that I get to do something new every day: solve clients’ problems, apply innovative approaches, and receive boundless support from my team.

I travel a lot, always learning new things about the world, and each day brings something new and is different from the last. The work I do never gets boring or monotonous, and my passion for it has never cooled. Looking back, I am delighted with what I have achieved over the years I have been at Deloitte.


Today, in Azerbaijan, we have more than 100 professionals, forming part
of a global network of 200,000 people all over the world. I want to stay with Deloitte for a long time, and I hope to develop with the firm as it expands, both in this region and across the world.

I believe I have been extremely lucky to start and continue my career at Deloitte, as it is one of the best places in the world to work and get your career going.
