What do our people say?
Strategy & Operations
What were you nervous about before joining? And how has that been in reality?
I was anxious that I wouldn’t fit in, thinking that I’d feel similar to how I did at school. In reality, being an individual is hugely valued at Deloitte.
I also thought I might have no social life because I’d be working such long hours. My friends and family thought the same. It even made me doubt my decision before I joined. But in reality it’s not like that at all. It’s about managing my own time and making sure I have the right balance. I had to grow up a lot when I started. Because I came straight from school which has a strict timetable, managing my own time was a new concept and felt like a pretty big jump. I love being treated like an adult though and I soon adapted.
My friends and family can see how being a BrightStart has worked out brilliantly for me.
What do you love about your job?
Learning something new all the time, and knowing I can try something different if I’m not enjoying a particular area or project. Having the freedom to be in charge of my own career so early on is amazing.
I didn’t know what Strategy and Operations Consulting would entail before I joined, but I knew I wanted a challenge and the opportunity to continuously learn. I thought finance would be about working with spreadsheets and accounts all day, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. There is so much extra training available and opportunities to grow and develop. I joined thinking that everyone would expect me to get everything right from day one – but I now understand that it’s really OK to make mistakes; it’s how quickly we learn from them that’s important.
