Life at Deloitte
Professional opportunities in Consulting
Finance focuses on being our clients’ CFOs transformation partner, helping them address and overcome the challenges they face. Operating across the private, public and financial services industries, we are split into three service areas: Finance Advisory, Finance Systems, and Enterprise Performance Management.
Our clients include market leaders across all three sectors, ranging from global banks and other financial institutions, to multinational life science companies and consumer brands. Working within the Finance practice offers an unparalleled opportunity to grow and develop your skills as a finance practitioner, as well as an individual. We uniquely operate across the breadth of the finance agenda, from strategy definition through to technology execution.
Our Finance Advisory practice aims to help organisations understand how best to structure their Finance function (the target operating model for Finance) and help them transform their function into a value adding business partner. We help organisations understand the true cost drivers within their business, using ABC, cost and profitability analysis techniques, and providing the financial analytics to support enterprise-wide cost reduction.
Applications Delivery & Advisory
Our ADA team has a wealth of Oracle, SAP and Cloud Applications knowledge which gives our people the tools and support they need to deliver large, complex solutions to clients.
Enterprise Performance Management
Our Enterprise Performance Management practice is focused on supporting organisational planning, budgeting and forecasting, enabling rapid period-end financial close and improving management information – from both strategic and technical delivery perspectives. This is achieved through the integration of our EPM Advisory team and our technical Oracle, SAP and Cognos teams.
Securing the maximum benefit from technology investments through successfully delivered programmes is one of the key challenges facing CFOs today. SAP technologies can add value at every stage of the Finance value chain helping to automate transactions processing, shorten the close process, accelerate the planning and forecasting cycle or provide business insight through rapid, insightful analytics.

Hear from our people
I’m a business consultant who has undertaken a wide range of projects in the public and private sectors, in the UK and in Europe. I specialise in the design and implementation of large organisational change programmes supported by SAP technology.
I’m a Senior Consultant in Deloitte’s Application Delivery and Advisory (ADA) practice where we design and build cutting edge applications that help our clients achieve their goals. I specialise in supply chain and procurement technology and my role allows me to use my understanding of technology applications to advise businesses on the best way to leverage enterprise applications.
I joined Deloitte in September 2013 fresh out of University as part of the graduate programme. Previously, I had worked in a variety of jobs from cleaning pots in pub kitchens to driving tractors on farms! My knowledge of finance was limited to what I had learned through courses at university and other aspects of personal interest. I had never worked in an office before and had no experience working within the finance industry itself and was certainly apprehensive about starting.
