One step ahead
In business, risk is everywhere. But with risk comes opportunity, and that’s where Deloitte comes in. We help our clients to stay ahead of curve, planning for every eventuality and future-proofing their companies.
As recent events have reminded us, there are no certainties in business. Our Risk Advisory teams help clients to navigate these situations and future proof their businesses. Whether that's protection from financial crime or assessing investment risks, we provide a broad range of services to help companies succeed.
"The opportunities to make a difference here are huge. We’re constantly encouraged to come up with ideas, so a lot of what we do to drive change comes from within our own workforce."

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.
Why is Deloitte a great place to work in Risk Advisory?
The opportunities to make a difference here are huge. We’re constantly encouraged to come up with ideas, so a lot of what we do to drive change comes from within our own workforce. Innovation is at the heart of everything we do, so we’re using the latest technologies to constantly improve how we deliver our projects and bring insights to our clients. It means I’m always learning. We have a great culture and the amount of opportunities here mean you can develop as an individual in the direction that suits you best. The people are amazing too, I love being part of a great team.
So, do you need to have a technology background to work here?
No, not at all. That’s one of the amazing things about Deloitte; you’re given all of the training, support and on the job experiences you need to equip you with the core skills and knowledge for your role. I’ve been supported in developing technical and leadership skills for example – both courses I’ve chosen myself and ones that I’ve been nominated for based on what’s needed for my personal development.
