After Teach First, I realised that I still wanted to work closely with people in rapidly changing environments, but I was keen to experience this in a more corporate setting with greater opportunity to travel. I joined Accenture in October 2016 and - several countries later - I haven't looked back since!
It's a lot of responsibility but I work with a fantastic team and no day is ever the same - not a day goes by where I don't learn and grow in some way!
I take a lot of satisfaction in supporting stakeholders to travel from A to B - whether that's teaching 11 year olds to understand one of Shakespeare's plays to supporting my current client's employees to use a new process and/or system.
When something doesn't go how you had planned - reflect, evaluate and learn from it. Then move on.
Learning from my setbacks and articulating my vulnerabilities is now one of my biggest strengths - which was a very tricky paradox for me to understand for a while. Try not to be afraid of failure (I'm still grappling with that one!).
Accenture understands the importance of bringing your authentic self to work, and one of the many reasons why I love working at Accenture is because we live and breathe inclusion and diversity. The people who work at this company are constantly striving to make the workplace the best it can be for every person here, and that culture struck me even on my very first day.
