"Continuous Learning is a great value at Accenture, which helps me to grow professionally and to apply new working methods in my daily work."

What I do

I help organizations to develop their operations and support them in developing and implementing new IT systems. My work usually consists of project management and coordination, data acquisition and analysis and preparing and holding different presentations. I need to understand my client and their needs well and make sure we have all the relevant information to succeed in the project.

Currently, I’m working on one of the biggest IT projects in Finland. We are implementing the world’s first integrated Social and Health Care Record – that’s already quite exciting! There are many actors in the project – the healthcare software organization, the organization providing the system to the municipalities and all the social and health care end users.

Even though the project has had its challenges, we have also received good feedback from the end users, stating how the system has helped them to perform their jobs better. It has been inspiring to see the daily work of social and health care professionals in Finland and to be able to help them to develop their work further. I have learnt a huge deal during the project.

A day in my life

I start my day by checking my e-mails and make sure I have clear priorities for the day. I start the day with the most challenging and time-consuming tasks, such as preparing or reviewing presentations, and do fewer demanding tasks, such as replying to e-mails or coordinating meetings, later during the day. As I’m working in different locations during the week, I might contact my project team or other Accenture colleagues via Teams during the day.

The best thing about Accenture is definitely the people. Since joining Accenture, I have got to know many interesting, fun and intelligent people, some of which I am grateful to call my close friends today.

I love all kinds of sports. I often go to the gym or jogging or attend a yoga or a dance class. Doing different exercises helps me to balance with the office work and to stay energized and focused during the week. I also enjoy arts a lot, I have played the flute and sang in a choir for many years, and nowadays I listen lots of music and sing at least in the shower. However, I think the most important things to remember with our free time is to take enough time for rest and recovery, and to enjoy the company of our close friends and family.

My advice

Curiosity and adaptability are one of the best qualities to have in this job. Curiosity helps to learn new things and to enjoy the process, and adaptability is useful when it comes to meeting the changing needs of the client.
