Who we are
Leading the way in professional services
Deloitte UK is a leading professional services firm – one of the largest in the UK and part of a global network spanning 150 countries and territories.
We’re made up of 20,000 professionals, with a wide range of specialist skills, who our clients rely on to help them with programmes and projects that are critical to their success.
Whether it’s digital transformation expertise, sustainability know how, cyber skills or financial advice, we help clients in the public, private and third sectors meet challenges big and small.
We might be best known for the audit services our firm was founded on 175 years ago, but alongside these we offer so much more - take a look at our Annual Report.
As part of the Deloitte North and South Europe network, we share best practice and solutions as part of an international community.
Our breadth of expertise is one of our biggest strengths; we bring together teams with a range of skills – in areas like digital technology, procurement, supply chain, project management and logistics – to apply to our clients’ most complex challenges.
Our size means we can do this at speed and at scale, in ways that are making a positive impact on the lives of people all over the UK.
Today, the role of business in our society has never been more important and our people are helping to tackle some of the biggest issues for business and communities, sparked by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Working alongside our clients, we’re looking at how we can change business for the better – to re-imagine ways of working, transform organisations with digital tools, strengthen resilience and build trust in business and the economy.
Forging even closer links with our society partners, we’re also asking how we can do more to help meet immediate needs in communities - like building the skills needed to succeed in today’s economy and narrowing the digital divide.
This shifting role for business in society means our purpose - to make an impact that matters for our clients, our people and society – has never been more important.
Our purpose guides everything we do – the decisions we make, our support for communities, how we serve our clients and the culture we create in our firm.
It encompasses shared values, like quality and integrity as well as a joint commitment among our people to:
- foster inclusion, value diversity and contribute to a culture in which everyone feels free to be themselves at work and has the opportunity thrive; and
- play their part in our WorldClimate sustainability strategy by making responsible climate choices within our organisation and beyond.
5 Million Futures
A key part of our purpose is our 5 Million Futures programme, through which
we aim to support over 5 million people by 2030 by helping them to develop job skills, improve educational outcomes and access employment opportunities.
Between 2016 and 2020 we helped one million people – and in 2019/20 we contributed:
- over 120,000 volunteering hours to charities and community organisations
- £22 million to society
- 36,700 pro bono hours.
We employ 20,000 people across the UK.
In 2019/20 we:
- hired 4,842 people - 3,000 experienced professionals and over 1,842 graduates and Brightstarts, apprentices and interns
- invested £38.5 million in learning and development for our people.
