Life at Deloitte
Travis Trott, Bermuda
"Being able to learn new things everyday about the job or the industry is very enjoyable."
What do you like most about your role?
The thing I like most about Deloitte is being able to continuously develop my knowledge of the industry while enhancing my communication skills with clients and colleagues.
What attracted you to Deloitte?
The friendly environment! Working here as an intern over my summer and winter breaks has allowed me to develop positive relationships with the staff which made me feel part of the Deloitte family straight away.
Describe your day to day role
Working in audit, no matter what client I’m assigned to, involves me corresponding with the client (face-to-face, email, and phone) and providing timely updates to my manager about the progress of the audit. Even though I am only an associate, Deloitte provides opportunity for learning and growth by assigning me my own sections of the financial statements which I am responsible to test.
What else have your been involved with since joining Deloitte?
During my time at Deloitte I have been involved in many sporting activities such as football, volleyball, and golf which is always great fun to spend time with colleagues outside of the office. Being able to give back to the community through IMPACT days at the Bermuda Aquarium and Zoo, and the Centre of Abuse have been highlights of my time here at Deloitte as well.
What is Deloitte’s role in your longer term career goals?
Deloitte has been really supportive of me since day one, whether it be through learning on the job or helping me through my CPA examinations. The introduction of the Peer-Group Learning session has also been greatly beneficial to me as it has created a friendly environment where you can ask your ‘silly questions’ in front of your peer group rather than to a manager or partner.
What have you enjoyed most?
The people! Knowing that every time I come into work I will be in a friendly environment is definitely a plus. Also being able to learn new things everyday about the job or the industry is very enjoyable.
