Financial Crime

"I love that my job really makes a difference - I enjoy seeing clients make changes based on the feedback and recommendations that we’ve made."

Tell us about your business area. What are the best things about it?

There is a significant amount of legislation and regulatory standards in place to safeguard organisations against financial crime risks. We help our clients understand these and remain compliant with everything they need to. This could be in relation to money laundering, terrorist financing, bribery and corruption, fraud, weapons proliferation, and much more.

There are amazing opportunities to work with high profile clients, such as global banks, and with very senior members of the Deloitte teams. I love that my job really makes a difference - I enjoy seeing clients make changes based on the feedback and recommendations that we’ve made.

Obviously the work is challenging, but I thrive on that. We work to a lot of tight deadlines, but as a team we make sure we plan tasks ahead of time. I’ve learnt to manage my time well and I know I can ask for support if I need it.

What’s special about the people of Deloitte?

I’m surrounded by a team of very talented people; I learn so much from them. There is a lot of diversity in experience and skills too, I love that everyone has a different story – some have a legal background, some are physicists, and some have always been involved with compliance work and financial crime.

My managers are very supportive and always encourage me to push my boundaries. And there is a great culture of respect and inclusion; I definitely feel like I can bring my true self to work which is really important to me.
