How did you get your role?
I was in the Army for eight years when I started looking for a change. I still enjoyed Army life, but I wanted a change for my family. Someone told me about the Deloitte Military Transition programme, which supports ex-military people and their spouses into civilian roles at Deloitte. I applied and was offered a role in Risk Advisory, as a Senior Consultant. I integrate the eight geographies in the Risk Advisory business to work together, harmonising processes. I work with some really good partners and people around the world and have been able to build an amazing team from our Engagement Support Services in Cardiff.
What do you enjoy most about working at Deloitte?
I enjoy my role and the learning opportunities, but also the fact that we are a very people focused business. Wellbeing is an important part of life here at Deloitte, and we can work flexibly to support that. For me that means being able to move around my working hours so that I can volunteer at my son’s school and pick him up when I need to. For others it might mean something different. Everyone here respects individual needs, and I have never felt guilty asking for more flexibility when it’s needed. We communicate well to make sure that we can get the job done, while meeting all of our personal needs and responsibilities too.
