Katie - From the high street to the cutting edge

Katie tells us how she left a big name in retail, to become a big name in our tech team.

How did you join Deloitte?

I joined as an Experienced Hire from a well known retailer, with an academic background in English with History of Art.

What are you responsible for in your role?

I am responsible for leading the integration team, on a global ‘Customer Relationship Management’ system implementation. The team consists of business analysts, developers, and testers. Currently, I am designing the integrations between the CRM and global systems, and leading conversations to agree the global strategic direction of master data management. 

How are you supported to work flexibly?

I work flexibly in an ad hoc manner. We agree as a team who will be working where over the course of the week, and whether we need to be co-located.

What was your most memorable moment on the job so far?

Organising and hosting an event to showcase Deloitte – who we are as a firm, and the exciting work that we do – with a view to raising our Women In Tech profile. The evening was attended by a cross-section of women from numerous industries, all with varied and impressive technical backgrounds.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I am a keen netball player! I play Centre, which is exhausting. I need to work on my fitness!
