Life at Deloitte
Attraction Marketing Manager
Jamie works in Human Resources and is based in our London office.
What do my team and I do?
I support the overall UK attraction strategy for student and experienced hires working with the business to develop strategies to reach and attract the best talent to Deloitte. Day to day, I create and manage everything from niche marketing to advertising campaigns to position Deloitte as a ‘great place to work’. The role relies on us being innovative. We are always seeking out new ways to engage with our audience such as virtual reality or online games. We like to push the boundaries.
Where does my team fit?
The Attraction team forms part of the Resourcing function who is responsible for overall attraction, engagement, recruitment and mobility across the UK and Switzerland.
How does my role make an impact that matters with Deloitte?
Our people are our business. The talented people we have here at Deloitte help keep us at the forefront of consulting. By continuing to attract the best talent to the business, we will ensure we keep moving the business forward. My job is all about making the diverse range of talent out there in the marketplace, and also within our firm, believe we are the best place for them.
My biggest accomplishment.
Surviving working in the real estate market in New York during the financial crisis. I started my new marketing job two days before Lehman Brothers crashed and it was tough. It was a real trial by fire but I learnt a lot. After a year it gave me a different perspective, a great foundation for working at a fast pace under pressure and a boost in confidence.
What I’m most proud of at Deloitte?
I’m still new to the role but I’m proud to be here. Deloitte is no longer an accounting firm. It’s at the forefront of innovation and it boldly embraces change. Talented, diverse people are at the heart of that; they power it.
My favourite part of the job.
I’m encouraged to be creative. I usually work from home one day a week so that I can step-away and have some thinking space. My manager knows it is important to be innovative in this role and to work out new ways of doing things rather than just keep the status quo. She’s progressive and very supportive.
Something more about me.
Unbeknown to me, my friends signed me up for a ‘Tough Mudder’ event recently. It’s a hardcore 13 mile obstacle race / mud run designed by British Special Forces. I was quite pleased I managed to live to tell the tale and even more surprised that I actually enjoyed it!
