Why was I attracted to Berkeley?

Having spent my formative consulting years at Accenture, and subsequently at Infosys Consulting, I felt I was being pushed increasingly to specialise. I wanted to work somewhere where there would be more variety and breadth to my work. I’d started to feel that the programmes I was working on were the same client to client, that perhaps we were overly tied to methodology and that I had little influence over how we were crafting solutions.  I also felt like many of the programmes were somehow removed from the business we were working with, and it was hard to get exposure to the challenges we were trying  to solve for the most senior people. I was also lucky to have a number of friends at Berkeley who were quick to tell me about the great culture, both in and out of the office.


What did I get out of my time at Berkeley?

In my time at Berkeley I definitely found that variety and exposure! I was able to build out my skills into working on developing business strategy, target operating models and integrating organisations. The skills I had acquired in programme management and business change were put to the test in new ways, for diverse clients… and I was trusted to work directly with much more senior people and on more critical challenges. The most compelling part of the Berkeley model for me was that although I was being mentally challenged more than ever in my work, I felt more trusted and supported than I had done in my previous organisations. The Partner/Consultant Listening model allowed me to crack on and do the work, whilst also providing the sounding board and challenge I needed – good for me, but also great for the client. My time at Berkeley was a great spring board to my current role.

What am I doing now?

I spent almost 6 years at Berkeley, and I enjoyed them enormously. Sometimes a really rare opportunity comes to you and you can’t turn it down. So, I have now moved on to be the Chief Operating Officer of a construction software business - Causeway Technologies. Our mission is to transform commercial performance across the industry. We are the largest specialist software provider to the UK construction market, offering an expanding set of cloud software solutions that span the entire built environment life cycle from infrastructure design through to maintaining and operating the built asset. Digital transformation has been elusive in the construction industry. Tight margins have constrained technology investment and, as a result, the entire industry lags behind other sectors. Yet digitalisation presents a huge opportunity for increased value in the industry today. I have responsibility for our Professional Services Organisation, HR, all of our Business Systems and our own internal strategy and transformation capability as we embark on the next iteration of our journey. It’s an exciting time to be involved!
