Life at Deloitte

Hear from...

Colm McDonnell

What I like most about my role

I love the variety of my role, through the work we deliver, the clients we serve and the team I work with.

What attracted me to Deloitte

I spent a few weeks in a summer with the firm and I enjoyed the work and the culture – although it wasn’t called culture then!!

What I didn’t know but wish I knew before joining!

I didn’t realise the options that would be available to me in growing my skills and using these on a variety of clients and across functions.

My day-to-day role

I have a very varied role which includes client relationship, product development, people management and project delivery at high quality.

As I lead the Risk Advisory team, my role involves linking with the market and the Risk Advisory team in Ireland and abroad to understand how Deloitte can make moves forward.

What else I have been involved with since joining

I sit on a number of Charity Boards and I also am an active gardener and painter at CSR Day!!

Deloitte’s role in my longer term career goals

It has defined my career.

What I have enjoyed most

Being part of the team and helping it grow. Now we hold a treasured brand that we can do more with.
