Senior Associate in Audit and Assurance, Stefania Popescu found her calling at Deloitte when she followed her passion for travel. Read about her experience:
- How did you join Deloitte?
I came across the job advert on the internet and decided to apply whilst still working on my master's dissertation.
- What are you responsible for in your role?
My auditor role involves reviewing company accounts and confirming if the information presented is in line with the UK Accounting Regulations. Also, I am responsible for managing and delivering the monthly audit delivery centre's newsletter (this is part of my internal communications role within the Audit Transformation Team).
- How are you supported to work flexibly?
I work full-time in the office, however flexible working is available if required – if, for example, I need to work from home one day due to personal circumstances.
- What was your most memorable moment on the job so far?
I think that my greatest achievement was to join the Audit Transformation team in the internal communication role I am doing at the moment, on a part-time basis. This role allows me to develop and increase my knowledge in internal marketing communications – a field I am very interested in due to my studies.
- What do you like to do in your spare time?
I am an outdoor person so I really like long walks (on the beach or in the countryside), bike riding, cooking/baking, travelling, reading books and charity volunteering. My passion for travel is what motivated to move from my home country to a whole new place. Coming to the UK to study also gave me the opportunity to join Deloitte. I believe it is very important to maintain your hobbies as sometimes they can help you achieve things you may only have dreamt about.
