What do our people say?
What’s great about working for Deloitte Legal?
The work is so new and different. We are often tackling problems that no-one has addressed before, so the team comes together to create something entirely bespoke.
It’s great working with people in different non-legal teams as they bring a completely different perspective to the table, diversifying the way the legal team think and work.
It’s also good to know that my opinion matters, and I can have an input from the moment that we get a request for proposal.
What does your role involve?
I assist with the drafting of a variety of corporate and commercial agreements. I also coordinate specific elements of projects, working with different Deloitte teams globally and directly with the client too. I often have to draft memos on a specific area of law, which is really interesting as it requires lots of research across a variety of sources.
A highlight of my career so far is when I had three cross-border mergers on at the same time, all of which needed to be completed by Brexit. We were rushing to get court hearings completed in time to enable us to file documents with Companies House. Finding out all our filings had been successful made all the hard work worth it.
Do you enjoy a good work-life balance?
Flexible working is something that’s really supported here. I’m able to work from home at least once a week. The way everything is set up enables me to work from anywhere. It’s great that I get to do a job I genuinely enjoy, as well as spend time with my partner, our children and our beagle.
