Our People: Emma
Oracle HCM Manager, Powered HR
Emma has worked in Technology for over 20 years, specifically in technology that supports HR processes and functions.
“I joined KPMG because they’re a leader in transformation. That’s a key activity for any client moving to Cloud technology – it’s central to them making a successful transition. As well as that, I knew KPMG would open up lots of opportunities for me, and I was aware of it having a very good reputation in technology and as an employer.
“Technology is constantly evolving so innovation is absolutely essential. It’s what helps us to stay ahead of our competitors. As a team, we’re always improving what we do by reviewing our approach, our tools, our assets and also our technologies. Things never stand still here.
“There’s a lot of variety here. I work closely with clients as well as with technology. Both can bring new opportunities and different challenges – and even more so when you put them together!
“I’ve worked with Oracle technologies for over 20 years so I’m an expert in that. However, nowadays, I just love creating powerful solutions that make good sense to the client. What matters is finding the best technology and approach to deliver an optimal solution.
“We have the autonomy we need to devise the most innovative solutions for our clients’ specific challenges.”
“I travel every week and I see this as a key part of my role. I think it’s important to work as closely as possible with the client as it enables you to truly understand their requirements and how we can best meet their needs. However, there is plenty of flexibility around the time you spend away from home.
“There are lots of opportunities to get involved in activities outside of my day-to-day role. I often support new people when they first join Solutions & Digital, and I’ve been involved in several graduate Launch Pads. I’m involved in local community too – I like to get involved in charity initiatives as well as with tech events.
“I’m a full-time working mum and my family are incredibly important to me – work plays an important part in my life too. Enjoying the work that I do and feeling valued is a major factor in why I feel secure with KPMG.
“I also like that this is the right environment for me to develop my skills, that KPMG is an employer with great values and that I’m part of a team that recognises my contribution.”
