How did you join Deloitte?

I joined Deloitte as a Senior Associate almost 2 years ago, after a recruiter informed me that they were hiring.

What are you responsible for in your role?

I’m responsible for the offering and delivering of practical and technical expertise to clients on specific elements. This is applicable to financial institutions and other regulated entities. I also help clients to foresee and assess the impact of regulatory and policy change. Lastly, I support the development of solutions for clients and being involved in implementation. 

What is your most memorable moment on the job so far?

The most memorable moment so far would be my promotion from Senior Associate to Assistant Manager while I was off on maternity leave. It made me feel valued and that my team and Partners had not forgotten about me, even while I was away for over a year. 

How are you supported to work flexibly?

I have recently returned from maternity leave and currently work part-time. I’m off on Mondays and work from home on Fridays. This allows me to have the best of both worlds; to work and still be a mother. My team understands that on some days I have to leave earlier to pick my children up from school.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I enjoy listening to crime podcasts and reading about crime. I also take time out to be in nature with my children.
