From joining EY as an intern in 2014, I have progressed through the 2 year graduate scheme to now be a Senior Consultant within the Financial Services Data and Analytics (DnA) practise with a focus on Financial Crime. After achieving a First Class degree in Human Sciences at UCL, I decided to apply for the EY technology graduate scheme as I was stimulated by solving client problems within the ever changing and captivating technology space. For the last year and a half, I have been the Product Owner of one of EY’s most mature Financial Crime assets, the Digital Passport. I am responsible for setting the product’s requirements and managing development through planning and leading agile sprints as well as driving strategic go-to-market activities. Taking on this role has allowed me to leverage my creativity and remain close to industry trends and challenges surrounding financial crime technology. I am deeply committed to the People agenda of our firm and have been heavily involved in coaching and training our graduates, on-boarding our new joiners and acting as an inclusiveness champion. When I first joined EY, I founded our graduate CSR committee and established a ‘Charity Day’ event which involves teams of graduates developing and presenting business ideas to various charities sponsored by EY leadership – I am proud to say these events continue to date. In early 2018, I lead and delivered an Innovation Challenge to our EMEIA graduate community which was EY’s first hackathon of this scale with 400 participants. I’m an ambitious and passionate individual, with an insatiable curiosity for technology and I thrive in diverse teaming environments where I am able to constantly learn and develop.
