10 reasons why you'll love working at Deloitte

1.      We’re not what you may think

We’re no longer your traditional accounting firm – we’ve moved far beyond our auditing and accounting roots.  We focus on everything from cyber security and virtual reality through to digital marketing and tech integration across a range of industries including healthcare, retail, transport and banking. Explore careers at Deloitte.
 

2.      Flexible working

We recognise that everyone has different personal circumstances and preferences, and that success at work is empowered by support for life outside of work. We’ve reviewed and re-shaped our DeloitteFlex framework to give our people more flexibility to make balanced choices between physical connection and remote productivity. 

Did you know: we offer 12 different ways you can flex!  Learn more about our Deloitte Experience (DX) here.

3.       Inclusive parental leave

We value you as more than just a working professional.  That means that your lifetime milestones such as starting a family, should be celebrated, not compromised! 

We also recognise that families come in all shapes and sizes and that we each define our family differently – whether it be a partner (including same-sex and de facto), a parent, child, sibling, friend or pet, our policies are inclusive and we aim to support different life stages.

A snapshot of our inclusive parental policy: 

  • 18 weeks paid parental leave for new parents including birth, adoptive, surrogate, foster and same-sex parents
  • Flexible parental leave over three years to suit each family’s unique needs
  • Superannuation contributions continue during unpaid parental leave.

4.      Make an impact

In everything we do, our one defining purpose is to make an impact that matters.  You will have the opportunity to work on purpose-led projects across a variety of industries that help make a difference to our people, clients and communities. Learn more about our purpose.

Some of our favourite projects:

  • Proudly sponsoring Sydney WorldPride 2023
    Deloitte will support WorldPride 2023 in Sydney as the first major sponsor, helping to bring the event to the rest of the world from the Southern Hemisphere, for the first time in the event’s history.

  • Challenging the laws of GRAVITY
    Deloitte is helping to activate the space ecosystem and support Australia’s civil space priority to inspire the nation’s use of space technology and capability. One initiative we’ve actively participated in is the GRAVITY Challenge.

  • Helping Belong go carbon neutral
    Teams from Deloitte Risk Advisory, Financial Advisory and Consulting's Deloitte Digital helped Belong, Telstra’s challenger brand, to become the first certified carbon neutral Australian telecommunications provider; and created the concept of a Carbon Thumbprint to position them as an ICT leader in the climate risk space.

5.      Volunteering

The Deloitte Foundation is an integral part of our culture, where you can explore volunteering, pro-bono and mentoring opportunities. Our annual Impact Day is a popular Deloitte tradition, providing time for our people including our CEO Adam Powick, to give back. In FY21 we worked with national community partners Oxfam, The McGrath Foundation, Many Rivers and The Smith Family with over 2,800 participants taking part in 297 events.
