What do you do at Deloitte Technology Consulting?

Having spent most of my career delivering and leading data, information and insight driven transformations for clients using skills and experience spanning technology, people and process improvement, I am currently working on a role to help drive our strategy around innovative delivery models to help us strengthen our competitive position in the market as a true multi-disciplinary services firm. I am also the leader of the Deloitte Women in Technology Network which is a role I am extremely passionate about.

My experience in data and analytics allows me to be innovative and is focussed on helping make the changes within our organisation and innovate to remain competitive in the market place. I love working with talented people, innovating and implementing new ideas that help us excel and enhance our business performance.

Working with talented people from all different backgrounds and sharing ideas and experiences to achieve some fantastic results for our clients and people – that’s what drives me and working here, I get to do just that.

 

Why did you choose a career in Technology?

I started life as a graduate in Consulting and over the years I have learned so many different skills and had some fantastic experiences as well as had exposure to different business challenges.

I’ve enjoyed the variety and challenges of my roles and work and have always been interested in how technology can change and shape the world we live in. This explains why I focused my career development in Analytics, working and leading a variety of information and data centric projects across clients in Technology, Media and Telecoms and Public Sector. All of this has helped me develop both personally and professionally and progress. The organisational skills I have gained are definitely invaluable when juggling life as a full time working mum.

 

What would you say to someone considering a career in Technology?

Go for it ! Challenge pre-conceptions about what you think working in technology is. Do your research and explore the range of possibilities. Technology is the fastest growing industry and needs creative, innovative and talented people to help our client’s businesses stay ahead of the game. If you enjoy variety, solving complex business problems and can see how technology enables change, then it is the right career for you!

The combination of interesting & challenging work and a supportive environment make Technology Consulting in Deloitte a great place to work for talented people.
