Life at Deloitte
Hear from Jack Hegarty
Graduate in Risk Advisory
Through Deloitte's training and excellent mentoring, I have learned so much that I can take forward and use in my career.
What I like most about my role?
I like the role that I am in because each day is different. No two days are the same and the variety of work I do is so vast and different that I get to see all types of things.
What attracted me to Deloitte?
I was attracted to Deloitte as they are a global leader in their field. I had heard some good feedback and I felt that the work environment they offered would suit me.
What I didn’t know but wish I knew before joining!
I wish I had known more about the role I joined. I had researched the role but the experience of it was quite different. It’s easy to read about it but actually doing it and being in that position is something that you need to experience.
My day-to-day role
My role involves looking at internal controls within companies. We have both public and private clients so the work can be very different but the end product is the same.
How I have been able to make an impact in my role?
I feel I have made an impact by contributing some value to our clients through our advisory and audit roles with them.
What else I have been involved with since joining?
I have been involved with Graduate Recruitment and also proposals for potential clients which has really helped me see things from a different view.
Deloitte’s role in my longer term career goals
Deloitte has given me the experience and confidence to pursue a career that I wouldn’t have been able to achieve without it. Through its training and excellent mentoring, I have learned so much that I can take forward and use in my career.
What I have enjoyed most?
I have enjoyed working and learning from people who really know their area of expertise. I have enjoyed seeing the various ways people work and learning so much from them.
