Professional opportunities in Consulting

Technology is an exciting and thriving competency within our Consulting practice. We have a diverse practice with around 1000 practitioners working on challenging engagements across a wide portfolio of clients, and operating from many offices around the UK. Our breadth and depth of expertise enables us to work with a broad range of clients from FTSE 100, Financial Service and Public Sector organisations to help define, shape and successfully deliver some of their most complex technology projects.

The quality of our technical skills is enhanced through our practical knowledge of implementation and our ability to team with each other. Our tools and methodologies add to the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of our work.

The breadth and depth of the expertise we bring to each engagement, and the collaborative way we work with clients and with each other help us stand out from our competitors. Our consultants have valuable expertise in market analysis, organisational design, operational performance improvement, performance measurement, risk management, and project and change management.

Analytics

Our practitioners work around the UK on challenging engagements with leading FTSE 100 clients across strategy, advisory and implementation. There are opportunities for international travel also to deliver projects with our large global clients. We work across all the major industry sectors and are keen to speak to people from a wide circle of experiences including, Public Sector, Financial Services, Healthcare and Life Sciences, TMT, Oil and Gas and Private Sector.

It’s a thriving area of the business for us, meaning we’re always interested in conversations with data specialists looking for a new challenge. There is no typical analytics practitioner but we look for people with good communication skills, a deep understanding of analytics, data and information, proven ability to work well in a team and above all a desire to deliver quality to our clients.

Architecture & Analysis

Our Architecture & Analysis team sits at the heart of many of the most exciting technology projects in the UK.  Bridging across business and IT, it advises on strategic architecture, design, technical and business analysis.  Using a suite of reference tools and methodologies, they help clients to understand the current state of their business, process and technology landscapes in order to shape and deliver large complex programmes of change.  From initial strategy and architecture definition, through vendor selection activity to detailed design and analysis, the A&A team sets, and maintains, the foundations for successful delivery on many of our key clients’ projects and programmes.

Delivery

Delivery provides clients with the advice and delivery support that they need in their complex technology programmes. We work across all aspects of technology delivery including digital solutions, package integration, custom development and infrastructure.

Delivery provides a range of services to help clients deliver business driven, technology-enabled change across their organisation. We support clients in many different ways:

  • Define, establish and run their most complex technology-enabled change programmes
  • Manage their portfolios of technology projects and programmes
  • Recover their troubled projects and programmes
  • Advise them on building their in-house technology delivery capability

Digital

Deloitte Digital operates at the intersection between creative and intuitive forward thinking and robust quality-focused technology delivery.  We are an innovative leader in online and mobile strategy, design and development and are ranked in the top 10 Digital Agencies in the UK by Econsultancy. We work with a range of iconic global and local organisations helping them unlock the value of emerging digital technologies including user experience, mobile, digital strategy and implementation.  

We believe in our people and we understand that quality of life directly impacts quality of work.  We pride ourselves on our relaxed working environment, intense commitment to quality and truly unique culture. If working in an agile, highly collaborative environment at the cutting edge of digital appeals to you, Deloitte Digital is the home for you.

Effectiveness

Effectiveness plays a key role in advising, guiding and supporting our clients in all aspects of the CIO agenda through the lens of people, technology and processes. We help our clients to achieve leaner and more effective IT organisations by maximising the value created across all areas of IT.

The IT Capability Transformation (ITCT) group focuses on optimising value and transforming the way in which IT organisations are run, specifically through IT Operating Model design, IT Strategy development, Service Management and IT Financial Management.

The IT Supply Chain Transformation (ITSCT) group advises and supports clients across the entire sourcing lifecycle from sourcing strategy, procurement support, RFP development, transition and contract optimisation. 

Infrastructure

Infrastructure helps clients develop pragmatic solutions to tough questions about their IT infrastructure: How should they navigate the post-PC era? How can they realise the benefits of Cloud Computing? Where does it make the most sense to build their data centre? What measures should they take to secure their networks?

With a business-aligned and multi-dimensional approach, we help clients deliver efficient, effective and flexible infrastructure through each stage of the infrastructure lifecycle:

  • Strategy: Assess technical options and develop infrastructure strategies aligned with business priorities
  • Delivery: Plan, source and manage major infrastructure delivery and migration programmes
  • Operation: Assess and improve an organisation's IT operations, resources and services

Insight Studio

Deloitte's breadth and depth of data and analytics capabilities enable us to be both trusted advisors and implementation partners with the world's leading brands across a range of interesting and challenging sectors including financial services, retail, media, technology, telecommunications, energy and public sector.

Insight Studio is at the cutting edge of innovation using leading-edge technologies and creative problem-solving techniques to help our clients’ manage their data challenges.  Our diverse and passionate team are encouraged to use agile techniques in the development, delivery and on-going management of analytics services and solutions that solve complex business challenges though predictive analytics, advanced visualisation, data warehousing, multi-dimensional modelling and business intelligence.

Security and Testing

Security

Organisations are increasingly operating in borderless environments and this often leaves them vulnerable to a range of information and cyber security threats. Our Security team works with clients to help them understand the Information Security threats facing them, utilising industry leading expertise and capabilities to prevent the realisation of these risks. This could involve:

  • Defining a security strategy and target operating model for an information security function
  • Defining, mobilising and managing security enhancement projects and programmes
  • Response to a cyber-attack involving both crisis management and investigations
 
Testing

Our Test consultancy team provides strategic advice to our clients where their new and existing technology implementations are at risk. We help to provide assurance that their applications and system architecture meet the set requirements, including for example, developing the testing strategy. Our proposition differs from our competitors as we are not purely delivery focussed, we pride ourselves on providing a more consultative and strategic approach to testing.

Roles in either team require a client-friendly, market-leading combination of excellent communication skills with deep technical expertise.

Enterprise Applications

Our EA 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.

SAP

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.

Tom Douglas, Analyst
Tom 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. However as soon as I joined the Analyst Induction Programme, which consists of a 6 week training programme when you initially join, all my fears washed away. The training I received in the AIP was comprehensive, challenging and stimulating. It gave me a strong start and prepared me for the complex aspects of client work.
