Life at Deloitte

Jim Bloomfield

Director, Consumer & Industrial Products Industry, Leeds

What do my team and I do?

My team and I are focused on building outstanding relationships with our clients in the Consumer & Industrial Products Industry. We do that in three main ways: i) We prioritise our firm’s resources so that we invest in our client relationships; ii) we enhance our client conversations through sector knowledge and thought leadership; and iii) we build teams consisting of industry focused people who can best serve the needs and understand the issues of our clients. We collaborate and liaise with all areas of Deloitte, both here and overseas, to serve our largest and most influential clients in the best possible way.

Where does my team fit?

We sit within Clients & Markets and our job is to ensure that we are delivering one strategy across all of our clients and the markets we operate in. My team is specifically focused on executing the relationship development and client focused areas of our strategy in the Consumer and Industrial Products Industry.

How does my role make an impact that matters with Deloitte?

We are one of the leading professional services companies in the world. Our size, breadth and depth of expertise is hard to match. Our role is to join up the different parts of the firm and make sure Deloitte speaks to our clients on the issues that matter with one voice, delivering optimal value.

My biggest accomplishment

My biggest accomplishment has been in my personal life. I am a long distance runner and I’m proud to be only the sixth Brit at the time to complete all six World Marathon Majors, raising funds for Cancer Research UK along the way.

What I’m most proud of at Deloitte

I joined as a graduate fifteen years ago and I progressed to the level of Director in a relatively short space of time. I’ve had lots of different roles and the amount of investment in me in terms of training and development has been incredible - it has undoubtedly helped me to progress my career. And what I’m most proud of is seeing my personal investment in the development of others helping them to progress.

My favourite part of the job

For me, it’s all about interacting with people – Deloitte and our clients. Everything I do is entirely focused on the client so my role is to work out how an organisation with our breadth of expertise and insight can add value to them. There’s a wealth of interesting and rich conversations we can have with our clients and that’s what makes it so interesting.

Something more about me

Working at Deloitte gives me the opportunity to champion the issues that matter to me in a supportive environment. Personally, I’m very vocal about gender equality as I believe it is important. I am proud that we follow through on our purpose of ‘making an impact that matters’ as an organisation and aim to personally contribute to bringing our initiatives to life.
