Life at Deloitte

Louisa Arundale

Senior Manager - Application Delivery and Advisory, Finance, Infrastructure and Capital Projects

What do you like most about your role?

Taking a client’s strategy and ambition and working through the discovery process with them to ultimately realise their ideas. Every time feels like a fantastic achievement for the team.

 

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

I lead teams of clients, Deloitte consultants, and specialist experts to design, develop and deliver systems applications across Finance and Programme delivery functions.

 

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

Deloitte sees no barriers to women in terms of working, both my skillset and my industry are typically male dominated but Deloitte has been exceptional in championing women into roles where other technology firms may be reluctant to.

 

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

Deloitte have a very strong representation of women in technology, it is not seen as unusual role for a woman to take and women are actively encouraged into technology as applications delivery encompasses may roles and skillsets from hard-core technology, business analysis and client leadership.

 

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

If I have seen an opportunity I have been able to request guidance have been provided with guidance, tools and most importantly encouragement to realise what has started out as an idea.

 

What advice would you give to anyone thinking about working in technology?

There are many roles in technology and many different types of project, if one doesn’t suit you there are plenty more!
