Life at Deloitte
Raine Roberts, Bahamas
"I have really enjoyed working one-on-one with experienced managers and partners on my engagements."
What do you like most about your role?
The thing I like the most about my role is that it is challenging and dynamic. Working on various and different engagements, while simultaneously being presented new challenges and learning opportunities on a daily basis. These challenges have forced me to learn at a rapid pace and I enjoy the gratification of having figured out the answer to new problems.
What attracted you to Deloitte?
The culture and working environment of my local office attracted me to Deloitte.
Describe your day to day role
My day to day role primarily includes the execution of audit planning and testing procedures; including the analysis of client accounts, support and overall performance. My day to day role also includes managing my assigned audit engagements through discussions with clients, supervision of junior staff and internal team meetings.
What else have your been involved with since joining Deloitte?
Outside of my engagement work I have been a part of the internal social committee where I have planned and executed social events to promote unity and comradery amongst the staff, while learning more about each other in a fun environment. I also helped to organize and direct an internal staff forum where the staff body came together to give suggestions to improve the local office and our quality of work on the whole. I enjoyed working with other staff members to improve our office in an informal setting.
What is Deloitte’s role in your longer term career goals?
Deloitte’s role in my longer term career goals is to help me obtain a high level of proficiency in overall audit and accounting and to help me identify a specific area of accounting for specialization in my future career path.
What have you enjoyed most?
Learning how to apply the accounting knowledge I obtained, while at the same time gaining an insight into the operations of different businesses across a wide variety of industries! I have also really enjoyed working one-on-one with experienced managers and partners on my engagements. I like that they help to expand my thought process and learn how to perform on a higher level.
