Paying homage to our fondness of brain-teasers, every month we post a new challenge created by the Forensic Technology team, focusing on logical, analytical and coding problems.
For this month’s challenge you need to put your spy hat on and decrypt a message.
Kiran from the Electronic Discovery team in Forensic Technology shares her experience below.
I work in Forensic Technology and have been part of the Electronic Discovery team for 3 years, for the past year and a half I have been working on a project based in Lugano, Switzerland. The project has been set up such that a team of us rotate and we each spend 2 weeks at a time on site in Lugano. This means that I spend 2 weeks overseas and then I return to London for a month before travelling again.
April Li our Associate at Deloitte in the Forensic Technology team shares her take on what working life is like at Deloitte. Check out her entry below and if you have any questions make sure to ask her below.
April said, "I joined the Forensic Technology graduate training scheme in 2014 after completing a Masters in Finance at Imperial College London."
"As an international employee, I am sponsored by Deloitte and have been given a lot of support for various challenges I have faced working in the UK, such as my visa application and mortgage application."
"The graduate training scheme in Forensic Technology comprises two 12 month placements in two core disciplines: Electronic Discovery and Forensic Analytics. My first placement was in Electronic Discovery where I worked on several different client facing projects. One of the projects I have been part of is an investigation into tax avoidance at an international company. I have also been part of a project investigating alleged bribery and corruption activities for a European client. Currently I am in my second placement, in Forensic Analytics, working on a money laundering project for a financial institution."
"Our projects could be based anywhere in the world and there are many opportunities to work abroad on temporary assignments. This provides me with the opportunity to both work in, as well as explore, other cities and countries I may not have otherwise been able to visit."
Don't just take my word for it. Here is my favourite view on my walk towards the office from the train station everyday.
Victoria Pearce, Director at Deloitte in the Forensic Technology team shares her experience on returning to work with Deloitte.
Victoria said "I joined Deloitte Forensic in 2000 and in 2011 I started my maternity leave and subsequently took a 3 year career break following the birth of my daughter."
"Earlier this year I was contacted by Deloitte via the Women in Leadership initiative and asked if I was interested in returning to work at Deloitte. Following a number of discussions and interviews it became apparent the opportunity was too good to miss. Deloitte have implemented an agile working policy which enabled me to return to Deloitte Forensic Technology as a part time worker in their growing St Albans team. Flexible working allows me to work remotely to ease child care issues and to spend quality time with my daughter, here we are standing in muddy puddles – just before jumping!"
Here at Deloitte we have a really active sailing club and each year in April, we hold our annual spring regatta. We charter 20 boats for the weekend and encourage both experienced sailors and novices to get out onto the water. On each boat we have an experienced skipper plus two experienced crew members who act as hosts. There’s room for eight people on each boat and the rest of the places are open to people with little or no experience of sailing. I’ve been one of the experienced crew members for several years now and always look forward to meeting new people and sharing my passion for sailing with them.
