In Consulting, you’ll get to work on some of the most complex challenges our clients are tackling. Here are just two examples of projects our people have been involved in.

Reducing food waste with Plan ZHeroes

Plan ZHeroes (PZ) is a London based charity that’s helping combat food waste. We built them a platform for local businesses to post their surplus food and charities to collect and use it. PZ has since redistributed over 130 tonnes of produce that would otherwise have ended up in landfill. The solution is so scalable and flexible PZ is now operating in cities across the UK. We’re continuing to update and improve the platform.

Transforming HR through the employee experience

One of the world’s largest broadcasting companies wanted to deliver an exceptional employee experience as part of their firm-wide digital transformation programme, by making it easier for its people to access HR support and complete daily tasks. As well as reviewing and redesigning their HR Operating Model and organisational structure, we introduced a range of innovative solutions, from enhanced reporting and analytics capabilities, to mobile access to HR systems, to live chat. Our programme was successfully rolled out across 37 countries and has enhanced the experience of over 7,000 of the broadcaster’s employees.

UK Bank IT Transformation

A UK bank needed a whole new approach to their IT. So, they asked us to scope, cost, plan, govern and deliver a transformation programme. A diverse team from across Consulting and Financial Advisory worked together on the strategy and solutions. This included creating a new, revenue-generating, cross-border bulk payments product that’s unique in the market and now forms the core of the bank’s future business model. With our help, they’ve been able to start a multi-year programme and deliver numerous key projects simultaneously, while considerably reducing their manual effort and errors.

"Working in Consulting you get to really see the ‘ins and outs’ of businesses and there’s always that ‘future-focused’ element. I find that fascinating."
Alex

Innovation is at the heart of everything we do. Whether it’s delivering bold new solutions to our clients, offering world-class development opportunities to our people, or improving how we work internally, everyone’s always encouraged to think; how could we do this better?

Just one example is that we’ve recently digitised the processes our new joiners have to go through, transforming their experience. Not only has it given our new colleagues nearly half a day of their time back, the environment has benefitted too; over 100,000 pieces of paper have been saved so far.

"Deloitte has an exciting and forward-thinking culture."
Ayo

Your career in Consulting at Deloitte will be about more than solving clients’ problems. You’re sure to make a positive impact for wider society too. As well as being encouraged and enabled to volunteer, you’ll be working on projects day-to-day that touch many people’s lives.

One example includes our work with Save the Children. We’ve helped them respond more effectively to humanitarian crises, by providing the HR technology to track assignments and highlight where best to send resources. They’re now able to mobilise the right emergency teams faster.

You could also be helping the world meet its Sustainable Development Goals, if you join our ongoing, planet-saving project in collaboration with SAP, HP and the UN Global Compact. There are so many opportunities to make a real impact here.
