A steep but exciting learning curve in Tax

Lucien Nzotarh wanted to make the most of his Economics degree, so he knew our graduate programme in Tax would allow him to explore all walks of economic activity whilst working with the most diligent, intelligent minds. Read his story here.

What made you pursue a career in your field, and why did you apply to Deloitte?

I knew l wanted a well-respected professional qualification after completing my economics degree from LSE. So, having the opportunity to train in tax was extremely exciting for me and seemed like a good fit. Tax touches all walks of economic activity and therefore felt like it worked well with my economics background. At Deloitte, l get to work alongside people who are some of the most diligent and creative minds, helping to support business decisions and provide solutions to complex problems. 

What do you like best about working for Deloitte?

At the moment, my team and l are preparing a proposal to win compliance work for a large multinational. Being involved in the process has been really rewarding and I’ve learned a lot.

What are your interests outside of work?

Outside of work I really enjoy staying active and keeping fit. I try to go to the gym at least three days a week. I’m also a massive Liverpool fan (don’t judge me) and I follow them very closely. 

What are the top 3 reasons for joining the Graduate programme?

1. By joining Deloitte’s Graduate programme, l got the opportunity to train towards a world class qualification which will give me a strong foundation for the future.

2. I also joined for the incredible work experience where I get exposure to clients and the business world at a very early stage. 

3. Working around intelligent and hard-working people all day is also extremely motivating and pushes me to be the best version of myself in the workplace!   

How would you describe your Graduate journey?

So far, my journey has been one of learning. The curve has been a steep one, but I’ve found the challenge to be very rewarding and engaging. 

I’ve had the fortune to meet a lot of smart and interesting people, and I’ve been lucky enough to settle in quite quickly. I’ve only been here 6 months, but it feels like I’ve been here much longer!
