Thanusan, Associate Consultant
What was your background prior to joining OC&C?
I studied Economics at the University of Warwick, which I thoroughly enjoyed! During my time at university, I held internship positions at KPMG and Aberdeen Standard Investments, which ultimately led me to consulting (mix of technical and client skills). Prior to all of this, I emigrated from Sri Lanka at a very young age and have been living in South London ever since.
What’s your favourite OC&C experience?
It would have to be getting the chance to travel to New York for my very first project! I was very hesitant of travelling so early on in my career but the experience of seeing the Big Apple and meeting the US colleagues made it an experience to remember.
What do you like to get up to in your free time outside the office?
Muay Thai and 5-aside football are firm favourites of mine.
What advice would you give to someone applying at OC&C?
Never doubt yourself – you will meet some of the smartest people you will ever meet at OC&C, but you should use that to empower yourself and soak up as much knowledge as possible.
