Fenella’s story

What made you pursue a career in Strategy and Operations?

The variety of work. Consulting is a varied and dynamic job – you have the opportunity to experience a range of projects, clients and locations. You’re always learning, gaining new skills, meeting new people and varying your work. This is very important to me.

What do you like best about working for Deloitte?

The people. Deloitte places emphasis on what you can bring as an individual. With such a range of personalities and wealth of experience, the people you work with not only provide a fun and dynamic working environment, but also the opportunity to shape your career to your own personal interests and goals.

What were your most memorable achievements from 2018?

My most memorable achievements include graduating university, climbing to the top of Acetenango volcano in Guatemala, and bungee jumping in New Zealand.

Looking back at 2018, what have your key motivations been?

For me, my main motivation comes from working with people in a team; a sense of camaraderie is always a good motivator. Secondly, I’d say achievement. As a new Analyst, the training process involves learning on the spot and picking up skills quickly. Achievements small or big provide a huge sense of satisfaction, and they give you the feeling of continued growth. 

 

Sophie’s story

What made you pursue a career in Strategy and Operations?

I was really interested in pursuing a career that I could use the skills I learned during my English Literature and History degree. I enjoy thinking critically and problem solving, which are both key aspects of a job in Consulting.

What do you like best about working for Deloitte?

Everyone says it, but honestly the people who work here are really lovely and supportive. There’s a real sense of everyone wanting you to do well, and supporting you in it.

What were your most memorable achievements in 2018?

Moving to London after four years in Edinburgh and Newcastle at University was a huge jump for me. But I’m proud of myself moving to three new cities on my own by the age of 22. I also did my second solo skydive which was really exciting. The second one is almost harder than the first, weirdly enough.

Looking back at 2018, what have your key motivations been?

My key motivation was to start my new job in the most positive way possible. This meant making strong connections with a variety of people, which is something I’ve done over the last couple of months.

For 2018 as a whole, I really wanted to push myself during my last year of university. Moving to a new city and taking up skydiving was an important step towards that.

If you’re interested in a career with added excitement (extreme sports are optional), then search for opportunities in Strategy and Operations.
