Amanda Bott – Consulting Strategy & Operations
One of the most exciting prospects for me was to be a part of Deloitte’s culture. It’s one of the reasons that I’ve heard many prospective graduates cite when speaking about what is important to them. For the past seven months Deloitte has delivered. However, I didn’t expect that some of the most rewarding experiences have come from the clients that I’ve worked with.
For most of my graduate career, I have worked on a large scale finance transformation at a diverse construction, development and investment company. While playing a part in program management has been challenging at times, the support of great clients and the Deloitte team has enabled me to ‘embrace the deep end’ and continue to shape my role.
I’ve seen the ‘empower and trust’ signal in action throughout this major project. I’ve been given the chance to take on challenging work and directly support senior client management, which is not a typical graduate role. However, it is the flexibility and support of the Deloitte leaders who manage delivery while also giving the team personal opportunities to grow.
I have found that the most unexpected professional opportunity has come from working with a predominantly female, senior leadership team. Not only are these women talented and extremely accomplished, they have also made the time to develop meaningful relationships with the team members, including myself, which has been very inspirational.
The culture and initiatives like Inspiring Women and The Deloitte Foundation make Deloitte an exceptional place to work, but I have discovered that working with our clients from day to day can be the source of some of the most rewarding experiences.

Make an IMPACT
IMPACT Day is a global Deloitte initiative that typically involves one full day of community service. In 2012 over 2500 Deloittians volunteered for 175 different charities for a total of 20,000 hours! Our teams provided help to our communities in the form of professional insights, compassion, and elbow grease for organisations such as Guide Dogs, RSPCA, Ronald McDonald House, national parks, Habitat for Humanity, local schools, and the list goes on.
