Life at Deloitte
Senior Consultant - Analytics & Information Management, Technology Consulting
What do you like most about your role?
I like that my role brings together technical and business challenges. As an analytics professional, I work with data and technology to achieve a wide range of strategic objectives for our clients.
What work do you get involved in on a day to day basis at Deloitte?
Although I work in technology, I don’t just sit in front of a computer the whole day! I spend most of my time working closely with our clients, understanding their needs and implementing innovative solutions.
Why do you think Deloitte is a good place for women to work?
Deloitte offers plenty of opportunities to build a network, connect with colleagues and learn from the diverse experiences of others. The Women in Technology network is a great example of this, organising events to connect professionals. I believe I have all the support I need for my professional development.
How have you found it being a woman working in technology?
I believe that there is tremendous opportunity in often being the only woman on the team. My contribution has been valued both internally by the UK and the US colleagues and externally by our clients. .
How has Deloitte played a role in your long term career goals?
Understanding the importance of client connections in consulting, my long term goal is to build trusted relationships with our clients. Since my very first project at Deloitte I was given the opportunity to engage with a wide range of client stakeholders across Europe and develop relationships for the future.
The landscape of technology is constantly evolving: we moved from desktop computers, to touchscreen mobile phones and virtual personal assistants in just two decades. With this pace of change, the challenges presented to technology consultants are increasingly complex. You will be expected to be one step ahead of the curve at all times, learn new tools and regularly reinvent your thought processes. If this challenge interests you and you are up for the task, this is an exciting time to join technology and analytics consulting.
