Cillian Dickson – 2015 Graduate intake

When deciding what my next step after college was going to be there was no obvious answer. I studied Theoretical Physics in TCD and I wanted to apply the skills I had picked up to something new and challenging. After talking to existing team members I joined the Actuarial, Rewards and Analytics practice.

Studying Theoretical Physics meant questioning everything, and using logic and problem solving to come up with answers that made sense. Working on the Actuarial, Rewards and Analytics team in Deloitte means that I am still questioning everything, but now I am solving problems with real world applications. I have been fortunate to have worked on a wide range of projects since starting with Deloitte, everything from traditional actuarial work to data analytics and writing industry publications, this variety has given me new skills and ways of thinking.

The work is only one aspect of life at Deloitte, as a team we participate in plenty of other activities, such as table quizzes and 5-a-side football, as well as nights out. Throughout Deloitte there is an emphasis on work/life balance. I am a competitive sailor and since joining I have found time to train and compete regularly with my team.
