Thomas Surrell's story: 

What are you responsible for in your role?

As an Analyst within Business Tax, I have a range of different responsibilities. This includes the preparation and review of deliverables sent to clients, the management of certain projects, and on occasion, some standard day to day admin.

What’s a typical day like for you?

It's difficult to define what a typical day is, as every day can be different. Overall, I will be involved in a variety of different projects, with different clients, who can be based all over the world. This will include client meetings either in person or over the phone, the preparation of various deliverables and technical research into certain more complex areas of Tax legislation. This work will be undertaken as part of various teams which can be based all across the world through Deloitte’s various member firms.  

Why would you recommend Deloitte to someone?

The people at Deloitte are very supportive. As someone joining the world of work properly for the first time after university, this has been really positive in making that transition. 

How are you supported to work flexibly?

I love the office environment and the effect it has on my productivity. So much so, I don’t work part-time or from home, but the option is there if I want to take it up.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love to play sports and am particularly good at it. I play a wide variety including cricket and football and am a part of Deloitte’s 5 a side team.


Joanna Lord's story:

How did you join Deloitte?

I joined the Summer vacation Scheme in 2016 and joined as a graduate shortly after in September 2017. 

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

My most memorable moment so far has to be getting involved in getting my own research published. I worked with a Deloitte Partner to publish research that I conducted on the structure and content of a number of Director Remuneration Reports for AIM 100 companies. 

What’s the best part of your job and in what ways is your team innovative?

The best part of my job has been the immediate involvement in projects and client work. I have felt like an integral part of the team from the get-go and have been entrusted with more work and a higher level of work that would normally be expected. 

What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my spare time, I enjoy playing squash, skiing and scuba diving. I also love to travel and explore new destinations and cultures.
