Life at Deloitte
Assurance & Advisory Careers
Today’s changing economy needs outstanding professionals as trusted advisers.
We provide assurance or advisory services to a large number of the Top 100 ASX companies and are continuing to experience rapid growth. In drawing on our specialist skills and thorough understanding of our clients’ businesses and their industries we help them identify major opportunities and risks beyond the traditional financial reporting function and improve their business performance and objectives. It’s a testament to our people that at the 2013 Financial Review CFO Awards in Australia we won both Audit Firm of the Year and Accounting Firm of the Year – the first time a firm has won both accolades.
A&A's Lead Partner Cindy Hook talks about life in the team
Deloitte encourages and supports all Assurance & Advisory graduates in undertaking the Charted Accountants program. For staff of all levels, access is available to senior mentors who are directly involved in your development.
Where do you fit in Assurance & Advisory?
Audit - If you have a Chartered Accountants qualification or are eligible to undertake the Chartered Accountants qualification, our Audit practice may be the right fit for you. In this area we look for high performing Audit professionals, with a practical knowledge of current global audit practices and exposure to IFRS reporting who are currently advising mid-sized and large corporations. You will be delivering, identifying and creating assurance services for your clients and will have the opportunity to build your own service offerings based on your past experience coupled with the collective knowledge of Deloitte. Your strong report writing, communication and presentation skills will compliment your highly organised approach and proven project management knowledge enabling you to maintain strong relationships with key clients and build new networks and businesses.
The largest industry area is our specialist Financial Services Audit group. Here you will use your practical knowledge and experience of current global audit practices within Financial Services, with the ability to have exposure to banking, superannuation, funds management and insurance.
“Over the last 1.5 years at Deloitte, I’ve been given the opportunity to be facilitate training and am currently on a 6 month secondment to our Quality and Risk team. The opportunities that have been made available to me have been endless”
- Cindy Man, Client Manager, Sydney
Advisory - Within Advisory, you will deliver a different perspective to clients by leveraging your own experience and Deloitte global best practice, helping clients to identify, prioritise and resolve issues. Managing a client portfolio of recurring and non-recurring advisory assignments, you will be responsible for setting and executing project plans. If you are a sustainability expert, Advisory is also the right area for you.
Another specialist area within Advisory is our Financial Services Advisory team, which encompasses our Governance & Regulatory Consulting, Treasury & Capital Markets and Financial Controls Assurance practices. These teams best suit those looking to refine their careers in highly specialised domains.
"To date some of the projects I have had the opportunity to work on include a major advice review of one of the largest wealth management companies in Australia, an offshore compliance assessment of a state government owned fund manager, AFSL assessments for financial product providers and control assessments of a custodian. I really enjoy the interactions with the client and dealing with the constant business regulatory changes they are facing."
