Senior Consultant - Analytics & Information Management, Technology Consulting

What do you like most about your role?

The variety of projects I can get involved with is a definite highlight – anything from setting up a new e-commerce platform for a major UK department store to helping a global investment bank meet its regulatory demands.

 

What work do you get involved in on a day to day basis at Deloitte?

My specialist area is data management which can include running client workshops to understand their business processes and the data they need to support this, analysis of their systems and data structures to highlight issues and working with them to develop long-term solutions.

 

Why do you think Deloitte is a good place for women to work?

If you’re interested in problem-solving, tackling a variety of challenges and having a wide network of supportive colleagues to learn from, then Deloitte’s a great place for you.

 

How have you found it being a woman working in technology?

I’ve always been interested in technology and have found it a rewarding sector to work in. The Deloitte Women in Technology Network is a great place to meet fellow technologists and learn from each other’s experiences.

 

How has Deloitte played a role in your long term career goals?

It has enabled me to experience a range of industries and gain insight into their inner workings. It also offers a great Analyst programme which has helped me to develop my core consulting skills as well as pick up specialist skills within the area of Analytics.
