What I do

I joined Accenture as a Consulting Analyst in the Analyst Consulting Group (ACG), which sits in the Strategy and Consulting practice. I am now aligned to the Products Industries; this consists of Consumer Goods & Services, Retail and Life Sciences, and I am very keen to specialise in Retail at Consultant level.

Aside from client work, I am the Engagement Lead for my group, which involves coordinating and supporting the committee as well as managing the group’s budget. I am also a part of the Retail Hub team, particularly the newsletter aspect.

A day in my life

On my current project I am helping a Retail client move away from their legacy systems and migrate their store servers and databases onto the cloud. This will simplify store operations, facilitate remote access to their store software and improve their security and compliance standards. The solution is currently being rolled out in the pilot phase to a few stores initially before a mass rollout.

My role involves managing the early life support for the cloud application used by staff for store management, managing production incidents (issues which are reported by store attendants) and managing the deployment plan for the pilot stores (including server builds, database builds and smoke testing activities). I am also responsible for the change request process, which involves liaising with client stakeholders to deploy the application to additional pilot stores as well as the subsequent software updates.

The project would impact the client’s customers and staff, as the store experience would be improved. This is particularly rewarding as I would get to see the impact first-hand when I visit a store after the rollout is complete and this is one of the many reasons as to why I am keen on specialising in Retail consulting.

My advice

If you know what industry/practice you would like to specialise in, start reaching out to people within that space to get your name out there. This would not only be beneficial when searching for roles, but also in understanding the type of work and clients within the practice.
