Name: Deepa Dudeja
Your role: Team Leader, Transaction Operations
Region: Melbourne, Victoria
What’s your story?
I grew up in Dubai and never thought I would leave and relocate to another country, let alone Australia as it was so far away! I’m so glad that I changed my mind and took the plunge to move as it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.
When we moved here three years ago I aspired to land a job in one of the major Australian banks. I was fortunate to secure a temporary role at NAB and I’m eternally grateful to my People Leader who always backed me in everything I have wanted to do.
How have you made a difference?
I was made permanent in August 2017 and since then I have taken every opportunity that has come my way to step up as a Team Leader. Over the last year, I have led four teams as a Team Leader relief, and it’s been such a great learning experience for me personally as it enabled me to step out of my comfort zone and realise what I’m capable of. Not only that, but I also got an opportunity to work with some amazing people in these teams who work with such dedication and passion.
I think I’ve achieved way more than I’d imagined because my leaders had faith that I could make a difference.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about learning. I am someone who’s always hungry to learn more and likes to explore how things can be improved or done better.
Outside of work, I love cooking and trying out new recipes, reading, spending time with my dogs and my son.
