Senior Manager, Management Consulting, Financial Services

Munich, Germany

"Co-creating and collaborating to bring the future to the table. The freedom to exchange ideas, knowledge and unparalleled expertise is what makes my work here so unique."

What I do

I help banks and financial services organizations see the ways in which innovative technologies can improve how they understand and serve their customers, which often means inspiring them to bring more to the table than just banking products. My role is to challenge them to anticipate the future, lead it and shape it. It’s about helping my clients conceptualize what these new and revolutionary products might be. And then implementing all the necessary systems and processes to make sure that the necessary operations to deliver them are in place.

I do this in collaboration with clients by holding a string of co-creation sessions, but also as part of a multidisciplinary, international team of highly skilled colleagues. Recently, I was responsible for the launch of a robo-advisor designed specifically for investment products. It was a huge success and a lot of fun to work on.

A day in my life

There’s no such thing as a typical day at Accenture. We face a constant stream of new challenges, whether it’s in the solution design or the delivery of client projects. And we’re also constantly conceptualizing new ideas internally that can help grow both our business and people. But no matter the project, one thing is for certain: I’ll always have to draw on the expertise and experience of others. Co-creation with clients and collaboration both internally and externally is something I always push for. Because it’s only when you combine client insight with our expertise, methodologies and tools that can you truly exceed expectations.

I encourage my team to free their minds when it comes to the ideation process. Sometimes, the best ideas are the ones that appear the most far-fetched. I also dedicate time to exchanging ideas and approaches with executives from around the world, creating a pipeline of thinking and innovation that future clients can benefit from. It’s an attitude I try to channel in my life outside work—always seeking out new and interesting experiences, from food to travel to the theater.

“The only constant is the collaboration and co-creation that combines our expert knowledge with invaluable client insights.”

My advice

People are your best source of information in this business. Don’t be afraid to look them up and ask them questions about what we do and how we work. It’s the most effective way of figuring out whether this is the career for you. Start building your networks right away; pay our offices a visit or arrange to have coffee with someone. We’re a very open business, so make the most of it.

Your proactiveness and motivation might even get you noticed. Because that’s who we look for at Accenture: people who will seize every opportunity to learn and grow.
