Meet Deloitte Digital
"It’s such an inspiring place to work; everyone you talk to is working on something interesting."
What compelled you to come back to Deloitte?
It’s such an inspiring place to work; everyone you talk to is working on something interesting. There are always so many exciting things to get involved with that it’s a challenge to prioritise where to spend your time. Everyone always says “it’s the people”, and that’s true. Working for a brand you feel proud of feels pretty good too. And you don’t have any stress about fitting into a particular stereotype, because there are so many different types of people in Deloitte Digital.
Tell us about your most exciting project?
There have been various highlights over the years, a number come to mind; implementing a visualisation tool that helps an auction house see who’s bought each piece of art, designing how a new loyalty scheme would work in a large retailer, getting a large department store ready for a switch over to a new contact centre solution, and implementing technology that provides a luxury retailer with a single view of all their customers and the enabling tools that allow them to use this for more personalised marketing and better customer service.
Why choose Deloitte Digital over a competitor?
I’ve never experienced another culture that’s so unafraid to break traditional boundaries, and is so forward looking in its strategy and approach. It’s exciting to be working somewhere that’s bringing together a unique set of capabilities that we can see clients are looking for and value.
How’s the work-life balance?
I work Monday to Thursday and spend Fridays in my other major role in life, as a mum to two small and very active little boys. The juxtaposition of working life and pirate role play on a daily basis keeps things interesting.
"I can’t think of a place where it’s possible to gain such a broad range of both business and technical skills."
What sets Deloitte Digital apart?
Deloitte Digital gives people the ability to try their hand at lots of different things as well as specialise in certain areas. I can’t think of a place where it’s possible to gain such a broad range of both business and technical skills. And you’ll get to do that surrounded by some of the most talented people in the industry. I learn from my team every day, the support you get is incredible. It’s what I love most about my job; the people.
Why did you choose Deloitte?
I joined Deloitte because it’s the market leader in digital and analytics – my two specialty areas. My role is hugely varied as a result. I lead a team focused on delivering both Adobe and Medallia capabilities for clients across all industries, helping them improve their customers’ experience. I also lead recruitment for my part of the business. In terms of my day to day – I’m involved in all sorts from scoping sessions with clients, delivering technology, advising on best practices, to managing and coaching my team. We work collaboratively with clients – often based at their site. We run training sessions to help them use their new technology as efficiently as possible, we also help ensure they have people in the right roles.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
We’re often solving really complex challenges. That requires innovation. Being surrounded by colleagues with such a range of experience and competencies means we have this really strong network of talent and ideas to draw upon. No two projects are ever the same. It’s amazing to know that some of the technology we build is seen by millions of people every day.
"We strive for extremely high code quality, but we help each other out. That sort of collaborative culture can be difficult to find in other tech companies."
What do you do at Deloitte Digital?
I build fast, modern, and accessible websites for some of the biggest brands in the UK. On top of that, I lead the front-end team; organising social events, meetups, and our annual internal conference. I’ve also recently taken on the role of recruitment lead for our engineering practice.
What’s the most exciting project you’ve worked on here?
B Bank by Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank. In my career, I’ve mostly developed internal sites. This project was great because I could see it being used out in the wild. It was a surreal feeling when I opened an account using the website I’d spent months building – and it worked!
How does innovation happen in your day job?
We have a great community that allows us to explore new things, such as our quarterly mash-up day competition and our monthly front-end breakfast.
What are the best things about your job?
When I’m on smaller projects, I love being able to work directly with the client and design team to come up with a solution together, like three amigos. I love the casual atmosphere in our office in Clerkenwell; it feels like home, and the people are especially intelligent and friendly. That said, the best thing about working here is our professional-grade coffee machine!
Why should someone join Deloitte Digital?
It’s a great place for anyone who wants a challenge, but within a supportive environment. We strive for extremely high code quality in our engineering department, but we help each other out. That sort of collaborative culture can be difficult to find in other tech companies. Have I mentioned the coffee machine?
"It is really great to work for a company which is so highly respected and has great ambition to grow; we get to grow with it."
Why should someone join Deloitte Digital?
I joined through the Graduate programme in 2011. At the time I was working as a personal trainer. One of my clients was a Management Consultant so I was always hearing about her work and it sounded really interesting. I also knew a couple of people who’d joined Deloitte, including another personal trainer in my gym. I knew I wanted to do something different with my career so I decided to go back to Uni and do a Masters in Business Management. It was during that time that I applied for Deloitte. Now I work in the Marketing & Insight team in Deloitte Digital. I’ve worked on various projects across lots of different industries – but most of my experience has been with Marketing departments from Telco and Consumer Business organisations.
What projects have you found most exciting or innovative?
My very first project was for EA games looking at the marketing launch for FIFA; that was really exciting. At the moment I’m working on supporting new data privacy regulations (GDPR) and how this impacts marketing processes and automated systems. This may not sound very exciting – but it’s actually fascinating getting to grips with how the new laws will change the way we think and operate, especially from a customer communications perspective. It’s having a huge impact on the Marketing and Sales systems in complex global organisations – being involved in that is really interesting.
What do you enjoy most about working in Deloitte Digital?
The people. They are just brilliant. Everyone comes from a different background with different experiences - so there is always something to learn and people to turn to for support. We also do quite a lot socially which I love. I get to travel, and there is so much variety in what I do so I feel I’m constantly developing myself. And I feel that I have a lot of control over my career path – we are strongly encouraged to speak up about what we enjoy and are interested in, there is always a project that you can join that aligns with that. It is really great to work for a company which is so highly respected and has great ambition to grow; we get to grow with it.
"At Deloitte Digital ideas are not merely tolerated, but embraced and encouraged, even at an executive level."
How does Deloitte encourage creativity and innovation?
I studied Graphic Design and Advertising at Central Saint Martins. When I joined Deloitte six years ago, people with an arts background were far fewer. In fact, when I got the job I was told; ‘we’re worried you might be bored’. Now we actively look to hire from art schools. At Deloitte Digital ideas are not merely tolerated, but embraced and encouraged, even at an executive level.
We truly embrace the agile mindset, encouraging people to inhabit working spaces that help them be their most productive. A developer has different needs to a business analyst, for instance, and our studios allow for that. We are big proponents of working on the move and trialling new mobile technologies too. I actually use my iPhone as much as my laptop in my job.
What’s the most exciting thing you’ve worked on?
I helped design a new digital contracting solution called ‘Falcon’ for AstraZeneca (AZ). This allows the drafting, negotiation and signing of a legal contract in a single working day. It proved to be a milestone in my career. As well as generating significant attention globally within AZ, the project won Deloitte’s Client Impact Award, and I was named the UK’s under-35 Management Consultant of the Year.
Tell us about a project you’re working on now
I lead the design and delivery of a new immersive client workshop that we call the ‘Connected Patient Experience’ (CPx). We take our life science clients through a physical journey to see how digital technologies can be pieced together to make a big difference to people’s lives as they self-care at home. For me, the next key achievement in digital will be platforms that help tie new technologies together, in a way that’s intuitive for the consumer.
