Meet Anne Louize
What is your name?
My name is Anne Louize Randrup, but most of my colleagues call me Louie.
When did you join Deloitte?
I joined Deloitte in Copenhagen in August 2014 together with approx. 35 new trainees.
Why did you apply for a job with Deloitte?
It is no secret that I applied with a number of the big four accounting firms, but I chose Deloitte because of the culture, the energy and the warmth I met at my job interview and on my case day. Furthermore, Deloitte was able to provide me with the education I wanted combined with a unique social life, which I was not able to resist.
What is your educational background?
When I joined Deloitte, I came directly from Aarhus Business College.
What would you like to get out of your trainee process?
I want to be challenged and to develop to be able to stand on my own feet. This does not mean that I want to be self-employed. It rather means that I would like to be trained and develop to think and act independently towards clients and colleagues so that at the same time I develop my social and professional skills. Additionally, I would like to get a basic education that creates opportunities in many different industries and not only within accounting.
What characterises you as a colleague?
I am definitely the social colleague who are of the opinion that it should be fun to go to work. To me, there is nothing worse than getting up in the morning not wanting to meet what awaits you at school or at work. Therefore, I focus on always saying good morning and goodbye as I think it adds to a positive atmosphere. Personally, I always feel welcome when I enter the room being met by a smile from my colleagues. Furthermore, I am the kind of person who really likes to work and I love when as a group we solve a problem, whether it is about putting a team together or performing a specific task.
What are your hobbies?
Almost all of my life I have played some kind of sports. Handball, football, dancing … you name it. Right now, however, I am only a member of a fitness club, and from my point of view, I do not use it enough. In return, I prioritise my friends and family and I am also joining a mentor project in the Red Cross where I act as a role model for a young boy aged 12.
Impact that matters. What difference do you make in everyday life?
It is important to me that I am happy to go to work. Therefore, I always have an open mind and smile at work. I think this makes an influence on my clients and colleagues – or at least so it seems :) Furthermore, I am, as mentioned, joining the Red Cross generator project that is about guiding and acting as a role model for a young person aged 12-16 years. I have been part of the project since February 2016 and I can feel that the young boy is happy that I want to spend time with him.
