Share your journey to Bain.

Post undergrad I joined PwC in London where I trained as a chartered accountant and spent around five years in their London Mid-Tier Assurance practice working with small to mid-sized clients across business services and retail. In 2018 while earning my MBA at INSEAD, I spent the summer with Bain as a summer associate in the London office. I used this opportunity to learn more about consulting and about the firm. I had a great experience and accepted a full-time offer to return in March 2019.

How did you know that Bain was the right company for you?

For me, my career choice was all about the people. Ultimately, you’ll be spending most of your waking hours with them, so they need to be great. I’ve yet to meet a Bainie that isn’t great. From the minute I met Bain on INSEAD’s campus I new they were special. They truly cared about the people and encouraged us to make the right career decisions for ourselves whilst supporting us in those decisions. That became more apparent once I joined the firm and met so many like-minded, inspiring people who I learn from daily.

Do you feel like you can do impactful work at Bain? What opportunities excite you?

Absolutely! From day one I felt like was delivering high impact work to oftentimes very high-profile clients. I feel our clients genuinely welcome our input and value our support which is very rewarding day to day. I love the opportunity to work across multiple industries and learn something new every day.
