Life at Deloitte
Senior Marketing Assistant, Milton Keynes
What do my team and I do?
I am part of the marketing delivery team. We support the industry aligned marketing leads across all parts of the firm. My role involves the end-to-end project management of campaigns from concept to the completed product including writing and designing a communications plan. It’s an interesting and varied role as we work on multiple campaigns simultaneously.
Where does my team fit?
Marketing Delivery forms part of the Agency team within Clients & Markets (C&M). We act as consultants and collaborate with specialist teams such as the Creative Studio, Corporate Affairs and Events teams within C&M and with a wide variety of stakeholders including those at Partner level in the wider firm.
How does my role make an impact that matters with Deloitte?
We’ve got a very powerful brand and a great reputation in the market which we need to protect. The initiatives I work on have a direct impact on how Deloitte is seen by our clients and the wider market.
My biggest accomplishment
Earlier this year I organised and ran the Deloitte Relationship Management Awards (DRM’s). These awards allowed us to celebrate the fantastic work these relationship managers do in supporting our account teams. Our Relationship Managers are very busy so it’s normally quite tricky to get them together in one place at the same time. This involved a broad range of tasks, from engaging Senior Directors and Partners to support the awards by nominating their DRMs to finding a venue and creating all of the marketing collateral. I also collaborated with our UK communications team and their UK awards programme. I’m pleased it was well received and ended up as a hugely successful event.
What I’m most proud of at Deloitte
I found out that the firm’s Impact Awards were taking place at the same time as we’d planned to do the DRM awards so I had to do some quick thinking to turn it around. We ended up linking together and running both events simultaneously. I’m proud that by highlighting the fantastic work this team does, it led to one of our Relationship Manager’s also winning a coveted Impact Award.
My favourite part of the job
It’s the wide variety of projects that really interests me. Marketing Delivery are a flexible resource so one minute I can be working on an event, and then the next I will be briefing a stakeholder regarding the imagery for a report. The role enables me to meet a lot of different people both internally and externally so I am building up a great network of contacts. I also enjoy seeing the contribution I make to the firm; often in Deloitte you can be doing a small part of a large project, however in this role you can clearly see the impact you make.
Something more about me
Deloitte sponsors the corporate race in the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon and last year I had the opportunity participate. It’s an opportunity for companies to get together and race for some great charitable causes. I enjoyed being involved and even more pleased that I completed it.
