Consulting Careers

Risk under control

The most successful companies recognise that while risk is part of doing business, managed intelligently it can deliver positive results. That’s where we come in.

In Consulting, we work closely with our clients to identify risks and opportunities, build mitigation or contingency plans and develop future strategies that directly impact on their daily operations, ultimately leveraging risk to their advantage.

Our authentic value proposition is founded on:

  • Facilitating a risk-intelligent environment, in which our clients conduct business;
  • Providing comfort about risks so that clients can operate effectively;
  • Advising and shaping our clients ability to adapt to disruption.

Business Risk

C-suite and Boards are asking hard questions about risk in order to better understand and manage in today’s challenging environment. Deloitte pioneering work in transforming Internal Audit by integrating analytics, consulting and other services with the internal audit function is a novelty approach which sets us apart. We help organisations meet their performance objectives by offering recommendations to improve operations and assist clients with enterprise risk and compliance activities.

We do this by assessing, analysing and improving the effectiveness and efficiency of governance, financial and operational control processes.

We are rapidly increasing our market share in selected industries due to this innovative approach and dedication to service excellence.

Technology Risk

Deloitte delivers objective and holistic services leveraging best practices and experience in the integration of business, controls and compliance through people, process, and technology. Our approach is to use proven methodologies and tools to help our clients achieve robust business-led Information & Technology risk solutions.

Our Technology Risk professionals are committed to delivering innovative approaches and service excellence to our clients. We have a strong focus and commitment to the firm’s industry programmes and enjoy working with a range of clients at the top end of town and key public sector bodies.

What You’ll Be Doing

We work at the coal-face of organisations so you’ll get a good understanding of the inner workings of your clients, what they do and how they do it. To do this you’ll often be out of the office, working onsite with our clients. If your clients aren’t local, you can expect some inter-state and potentially some international travel.

Once with the client, you will analyse how functions within the business work, whether this be interviewing client staff, analysing large volumes of data or conducting observations of significant processes; you will then identify what can be improved and propose practical solutions back to the client, most likely to management or the board.

Through the nature of our work, we often partner with other divisions to deliver an end-to-end service so you’ll soon be networking across the firm.

Team Environment

The majority of the work you’ll do in Consulting will be 1-2 week engagements with a small team. It’s a great way to build your networks - a new client will generally mean a growth in networking of 10-15 people.

Our management team will provide you with the flexibility and independence you’ll want but they are approachable and supportive at the same time. You will belong to a counselling tree and be assigned a counselling manager. Counselling manager will be both your guidance through performance assessments as well as trusted adviser on your career.


Since a lot of work we do requires discretion, we can’t tell too much about the clients we work with. What we can tell you, is that due to the type of organisations that can engage a Consulting team, we often work with many large and well-known publicly-listed companies, as well as government agencies and financial institutions. There is so much variety you can gather a range of different experiences or concentrate on a particular niche to grow your personal brand.

Who Are We Looking For?

You’ll need an interest in digging deeper, in questioning, in interviewing, in searching for more. We want people who not only find problems, but propose relevant and practical answers to solve issues. The ability to untangle complex processes into simple steps will quickly become an everyday skill.

One of the key attributes we look for is the ability to cope with variety and change. You’ll be faced with the challenge of having to constantly adapt what you’ve learned to different situations and clients.
