Early career

Early career

“My career took me from Cape Town to London where I met my husband and to the Bahamas for two years where we got married.”

2014 I didn’t start my career with Deloitte

2014

“I joined the Deloitte Corporate Finance team in Wellington as a Manager.  I was attracted to Deloitte as the conversations were about what my career path could look like.”

I work flexibly

“As my needs change I’ve made many changes.  I’ve changed my days, hours and Partners are always supportive. I didn’t fully appreciate this until I was speaking with others in my antenatal group and realised so many others haven’t had the same support as I have”.

I got to try something new

I got to try something new

“When I was relatively new to the CF team they supported me to try something new through secondments in the Agri Sector. Recently they have provided me with the opportunity to take my career in a new direction building a Restructure and Turnaround practice in Wellington.”

“Continue to build the Restructure & Turnaround practice in Wellington.  I’ve been fortunate the Firm has acknowledged and supported me to build this business”.

There was no question whether I could work flexibly or not – not only are there options available, but people do it successfully.
