Work-life balance comes in many different forms here at Deloitte, but it’s safe to say that balancing work with representing Australia on the world stage requires a lot of discipline.
When Kaitlyn Schurmann first started riding a bike, she had her sights set on representing Australia as a para-cyclist. In 2018 Kaitlyn realised that dream and won a silver medal at the World Championships.
Now in her fifth year representing the Green & Gold, earlier this year Kaitlyn rode in Para-cycling World Cup & World Championships in Canada where she won three medals across the events. As well as making her mark on the bike, Kaitlyn has established a career right here at Deloitte as a graduate in the Audit & Assurance Regional Audit Delivery Centres (RADC) team, which is part of the Skills Academy in Adelaide.
Since joining Deloitte in March, Kaitlyn has worked in the RADC to support the engagement teams on multiple projects at a time, all while following an athletic training regimen.
I’ve been really lucky, Deloitte has been super supportive of me with balancing both training and work. I was a bit worried when I started about competitions during the busy season but Deloitte was so good, they said I could do both. I couldn’t have done it without DeloitteFlex.
