Hi, I managed to contribute a fair bit in my first year on each project. I primarily worked in small teams, and in your first year you find yourself doing most of the 'field work'. From collecting evidence, to interviewing clients and preparing reports.
Hi William, thank you for your reply. It's nice to know that there is a fair amount of responsibility as a graduate. How has your role in Risk Advisory evolved or impacted you since you first started?
Hi Tze, I had the same question before starting and soon after I found out that if you are proactive and express your willingness to help with particular tasks, you will get a lot of responsibility given to you early on.
Hi Tze. My experience was very similar to William's. I'm also part of a small team (around 20 people) so the projects I've been on over last year have been varied. I've attended client sites for interviews and processes evaluations (both in the UK and abroad), completed a wide variety of assurance and advisory work and worked with clients across a range of sectors. You're able to contribute in a positive way and managers actively encourage you to do so.
So I'm just about to become a Senior Consultant (having completed 2 years now), and would say my role has changed a reasonable amount. I am increasingly trusted with work (although there is a culture of asking questions), I also have worked alone a fair bit, and am starting to lead field work teams when I work with other junior grades
Thank you all for your replies! They have been very informative indeed :)
You find yourself learning a lot very quickly through a range of experiences. I am working on projects now that would have seemed rather daunting when I joined. Now they just feel normal. this kind of development happens through out your career at Deloitte
Thanks Andrew, that's great to know!
