What’s your story? How did you end up at Deloitte?

I studied Maths, Accountancy and Media at sixth form, but didn’t enjoy it. So I left to go travelling. By the time I came back, I knew I wanted to get into Accounting. I completed AAT Level 1, then came across the Entry Level Apprenticeship at Deloitte. I knew it was an amazing opportunity that I had to take. So much so, I was willing to relocate from Surrey to Wales, leaving my childhood home.

I was 17. It was really daunting. But I’m so glad I took the first step: my first “proper” job.

How are you helped to achieve you ambitions?

I hope to become a manager in audit and work my way up from there. My current manager has supported me in starting this journey. He’s supported my move to the client-facing side of audit from the start, even though it means losing someone from his team. He’s helped me with interview techniques and presentations.

I’ve just finished my first apprenticeship and will soon start on my ACAs. While studying, I had a day off each week to go to college or for study leave. This was great, as I didn’t lose my evenings and never felt there was too much pressure.

On top of this, I had the opportunity to travel to Brussels for the Deloitte North West Europe (NWE) Impact Awards 2018, as a representative of the Cardiff Apprenticeship Scheme This was a great opportunity to showcase the scheme, meet and network with people from all over Deloitte NWE.
