Kagiso Manaka

Risk analyst

When studying, I never imagined my degrees, a Bachelor of Science majoring in mathematics at RMIT, followed by a Graduate Diploma in Logistics at the University of South Australia, would lead me into the world of risk management.

I now work as a senior analyst in risk analytics at Deloitte, where I help identify data patterns that reveal anomalies in internal areas like payroll and accounts payable.

I didn’t have a clear idea about the opportunities at the end of my degree, but I found short industry-based courses helped close the gap so I could see what I was doing and how it would align with real life.

Find out more about opportunities at Deloitte, or meet a tech consultant who went through their grad program.
