"It's an opportunity to work with the best professionals in the business"
What do you like most about your role?
The challenge and the variety of work! I deal with different clients from various industries which hone my knowledge and expertise in rendering professional services to a wide range of client base.
What attracted you to Deloitte?
The reputable global brand of Deloitte and the professionals behind it.
Describe your day to day role
I have varied roles which generally include client relationship, business development, people management, and project management. My typical day to day role involves touch-point meetings with clients and engagement team members, coaching sessions, reviewing files, and attending to certain ad hoc admin and management tasks.
What else have you been involved with since joining Deloitte?
I am involved in the Corporate and Social Responsibility Committee in Deloitte. We support charities and/or join causes for the community through sponsorships. We give back to the community through the IMPACT day where we do volunteer work and help not-for-profit organizations (ie. painting of buildings, coastal clean-ups, etc.). We also organize social events in the office such as the Deloitte Family Day, Friday drinks, and after “busy-season” party, to name a few.
What is Deloitte’s role in your longer term career goals?
Deloitte has a great support system that helped me passionately grow in my chosen profession. Deloitte has definitely paved the way to where I want to be in the long term.
What have you enjoyed most?
