At Deloitte, all levels are approachable and willing to help

10 Aug 2017

Many know Deloitte to be a multinational professional services firm, but do you know what it’s like to work there?

With the speed at which technology is advancing, large corporate organisations and government departments have been faced with a lot of disruption over the past few years.

That’s where Deloitte comes in. Harry Goddard, head of consulting at Deloitte Ireland, said these organisations are either trying to drive efficiency for their business or simply adopt the changes that come with the digital age.

“Our role is to work with organisations in undertaking that change, so we support them in developing their strategies, the design of that change and then in the implementation of the change,” said Goddard.

When it comes to actually working at Deloitte, potential employees might be wondering what the culture is like. We spoke to Ruairi Allen, director in technology consulting, about his experience at Deloitte.

“When I joined six-and-a-half years ago, I was struck by the culture and how positive it was,” he said. “The organisation feels quite flat, all levels are very approachable and all willing to help and take time out of their day to assist you with your problems.”

The supportive and collaborative nature of Deloitte is clearly felt throughout the organisation, and senior solutions manager Lucia Navaza believes that one of the most important things there is the people. “You get to work a lot with people from different backgrounds with different knowledge so you get to learn a lot from them.”

Navaza also said that the work done for clients is very rewarding, especially when the results can be seen at an early stage. “We work with our clients to create solutions for them that you can actually see happening live in months,” she said. “So, you feel part of something, you feel like you created something.”
