Life at Deloitte

Sandy Chen

Actuarial & Insurance Solutions

Below Sandy shares some insight into what she studied, what informed her decision to join Deloitte and what a typical day in her role entails.

Area of employment:

Short Term Insurance – Actuarial & Insurance Solutions (“AIS”)

Qualification:

BSc Actuarial and Financial Mathematics

Why did you choose Deloitte:

I’ve always been attracted to the culture and brand of Deloitte. I was originally going to study accounting and was set on coming to work for Deloitte after varsity. When I decided to study Actuarial Science instead, Deloitte was unfortunately no longer in the picture, so when I found out that Deloitte had an Actuarial team and I got an offer, I knew it was meant to be!

Describe a typical day at work:

My work hours are usually between 9 am and 6:30 pm. The first thing I do when I get in is check my emails and make a list of priorities for the day. Then depending on what projects I am working on I’ll go check in and catch up with the managers on those projects. The rest of my day is split up into various meetings and project related work.

What is your advice to a future aspiring Deloittian:

Make the most of all the opportunities that are made available to you at Deloitte. Be sure to get involved with activities across the wider firm and not just in your team or division.
