Life at Deloitte

Sarah Wilkinson

Senior Manager - Finance, Applications Delivery & Advisory, Consulting

What do you like most about your role?

The opportunity to work with a wide range of clients, on a variety of different and high profile projects.

 

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

Well, aside from the fact that no two days are ever quite the same. At the moment, I’m engagement manager for a target operating model project. This includes everything from shaping the project approach, providing SME input to the design workshops and preparing to present next steps to the Board. I’ll also balance this with internal roles –I’m currently looking at how we continuously improve our mentoring and appraising approach for the practice.

 

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

There is a great working environment, people are willing to share ideas and provide support and guidance, whether formally through networks like Women in Technology or through more informal mentoring and coaching.

 

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

Interesting, exciting, challenging... I could go on.  My work may involve technology implementation but so much of my role is about people – building client relationships and supporting people through the change.

 

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

Being at Deloitte has given me the opportunities and experiences to allow me to shape and advance my career and it’s given me lots of role models, advisors and mentors to support me along the way. 

 

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

Give it a go, because otherwise you’ll never know how rewarding it can be!
