Emma McGrachie enjoys a varied career at Deloitte as a corporate Tax Consultant. And when she’s not busy advising her clients, she’s getting stuck into her travels, fitness and rugby. Here’s her experience:
How did you join Deloitte?
I joined Deloitte as a Summer Vacation Student in Edinburgh in 2014 and returned in September 2015 as a graduate. Prior to joining, I graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a degree in Maths.
What are you responsible for in your role?
I am a corporate tax consultant in Edinburgh. A large proportion of my time is spent in a tax compliance role where I assist a variety of clients across a wide range of industries. I also work on a number of advisory projects for both UK-based groups and international groups across a wide range of tax issues.
How are you supported to work flexibly?
I work full time. I can work from home when I need to and do so on occasion but prefer to be in the office.
What was your most memorable moment on the job so far?
I was given the opportunity to go on a 6-week client secondment to a large UK bank based in London. Working within their internal tax team gave me some great insight into their tax practices. Edinburgh is the next biggest centre for financial services after London!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
During my time at Deloitte, I have been ‘encouraged’ by colleagues to take part in the EMF 10k (twice!) for our office charity as well as joining the Deloitte Edinburgh Touch Rugby team. I like to spend time keeping fit & active and enjoy travelling, socialising with friends and watching sport – I have a Scotland Rugby season ticket.
