Enterprise Technology & Performance

What we do

Together we make an impact and add value in everything we do. We work at the highest level, with C-Suite Executives and their senior leaders, to create solutions that deliver the maximum return on investment, across the backbone of their organisations. We transform the digital enterprise with both core and innovative technologies, delivering tangible, sustainable benefits.

Your Career

You will be part of a diverse team that challenges itself to provide simple solutions to complex problems. You will deliver innovative business outcomes, working alongside some of the greatest minds around. Together you’ll take a holistic view of key functions, spanning strategy articulation, process design and technology enablement, with a focus on enabling functions, such as Finance, Procurement, Supply Chain and Technology.

Technology Strategy & Transformation

There is unprecedented disruption in the market as organisations respond to business drivers that are dramatically changing enterprise technology. We’re truly at the heart of change, working alongside Senior Business and Technology Executives, helping them to navigate this journey and transform their Technology functions, strategies and architectures. With our deep expertise in shaping and delivering on business-led, technology-enabled transformation, we empower our clients to continuously innovate while focusing on the business outcomes. .

Finance & Performance

As businesses evolve to either thrive or survive, the role of Finance is becoming ever more important. It is no longer appropriate to just be a guardian of the numbers, Finance people need to embed themselves even more into the business, using the latest technology to drive change. As market leaders, our Finance practice has the breadth of capabilities to help organisations become that Finance function of the future.

Supply Chain & Network Operations

Whether you’re advising, implementing, or involved in operations, you’ll help deliver transformational solutions that bring world class supply network capabilities to some of the most recognised brands in the world and to leading government and public sector bodies. Our vision is to deliver transformation through advanced technology solutions including SupplyCycle, SAP Ariba, Coupa, Kinaxis, IoT and Blockchain.

Digital Enterprise

We are at the forefront of delivering ground-breaking business transformations, enabled by Oracle Cloud and SAP S/4 HANA. Along with deep process, technology and enterprise architecture capabilities, our team has a thorough understanding of how digital technologies, such as machine learning and robotic automation, can drive business value and transform the digital backbone of an enterprise. We partner with clients to imagine, deliver and run a future digital enterprise, supporting their largest and most influential programmes on a national and global level.

Human Capital

What we do

Our global practice is renowned as the world’s leading HR and people transformation business. With our clients facing unprecedented technology and demographic disruption, we’re now building on that reputation to help leaders design and deliver the future of work.

Your Career

By combining our research and analytics capabilities with our industry expertise we’re developing innovative change programmes that equip businesses to thrive in a digital world. Our market offerings span the full breadth of Human Capital needs, from Leadership Development to HR transformation, as well as specialist Change Management and transformation programme leadership.

Because the future of work is a boardroom issue, not just a focus for HR, you’ll work with business leaders. You’ll help them rethink their business and people strategies, to take advantage of the rapidly evolving world of work, while ensuring a positive impact on their employees and society.

HR Transformation

The world of work is changing, and people are central to it, which means there has never been a more exciting time to work in HR Transformation consulting. If you love problem solving and want to work with a range of world-leading organisations to enable their workforce to thrive, then this is the place for you.

With our wide-ranging service offerings, that influence overall business strategy, we help our clients take HR into the future. Above all, we’re always looking for purpose and the opportunity to make an impact in everything we do.

HR Transformation has two core teams that you could join, depending on your interests and skillset.

In HR & Technology Advisory, we help our clients future-proof their HR functions, by understanding their current landscape and long-term ambition. This enables us to develop customer-centric HR delivery models, build exceptional employee experiences and leverage the most innovative technologies.

In HR Applications, we work directly with the largest Cloud software technologies in the market to implement new HR systems that enable a high performing HR function and the activities that sit within it.

Organisation Transformation

Business and organisations are being disrupted. New business models, exponential technologies, agile working, regulation and more recently, the pandemic impact, are all changing the way businesses and organisations interact with their customers and end-users; engage their people; and organise their work. As a result, our clients are embarking on increasingly complex transformation journeys.

Wherever you work within Organisation Transformation, you will be part of a team that truly believes that people and behaviours are at the heart of any successful transformation. We create lasting partnerships with our clients, enabling us to understand their most complex challenges. You’ll work with their people to help them navigate and deliver some of the most ambitious transformation programmes.

Workforce Transformation

Modern workforces are no longer a static hierarchy of employees; they are everyone who helps create, transform and operate an enterprise. From employees to self-employed gig-workers to third-party partners, workforces are more diverse, flatter, and ever changing. You will help clients understand where they are today and where opportunities will exist in the future. Your analytical rigour and insight will help them transform how they attract, lead, manage, develop and reward their people, and to win the ‘war for talent’. You’ll help create working environments that nurture potential and foster long term well-being, resilience and engagement. And you’ll apply advanced analytics and the latest technologies, to enable the ‘connected-worker’ to collaborate and succeed in a world of AI and robotic automation.

Actuarial, Rewards & Analytics

You’ll join one of three specialisms dependent on your skills and interests: Actuarial Insurance, the Capital Markets Group within Actuarial Insurance, or Banking Analytics and Quantitative Modelling.

Our Insurance business provides market-leading actuarial services across life insurance and general insurance, with a reputation for technical quality and thought leadership. Our teams provide services to a wide range of clients, from large multi-national insurers and Lloyd’s market syndicates, to small insurers who do not employ their own actuaries, and everything in between.

The Capital Markets Group (CMG) specialises in modelling risks such as the future movements of UK and international economic markets and longevity rates. As part of the CMG team you’ll be involved in the more technical aspects of actuarial and banking work, requiring high levels of quantitative skills to solve challenging problems on behalf of our clients. There is a focus on research and development, with the team being responsible for the enhancement of Deloitte’s stochastic economic scenario modelling suite; XSG. You’ll also have the chance to participate in the same projects as the wider life insurance team, allowing for a broad actuarial experience.

Join Deloitte’s market leading Banking Analytics & Quantitative Modelling practice to work with our world leading banking clients and help them leverage the power of their data to help solve their most complex business challenges, bringing your deep mathematics and statistics knowledge to bear. You’ll be part of a team of data scientists that provides a range of advanced analytics, risk management and quantitative advisory services to our top tier banking clients.

Strategy, Analytics and M&A

What we do

The world is changing, fast. Competitors come out of nowhere, governments and regulators need faster and better insight, customers are demanding a more personalised experience, and volumes of data are doubling every two years. You’ll serve as a trusted advisor, helping our clients make intelligent decisions about how to consistently succeed in their market. You’ll partner with board-level clients to shape data-driven programmes that transform their businesses, working with some of the most innovative technologies around in collaborative energetic teams.

Your Career

Strategy & Business Design

You’ll work in teams to help clients make strategic choices that shape their ambition, create growth, structure investment programmes and deliver new capabilities. You will work across industry environments, using a wide range of market-leading strategy methods and tools, against a backdrop of increasing disruption from technology and wider innovation.

Analytics & Cognitive

Working in creative, agile teams, you’ll help clients re-imagine how they might do business and unlock the insight and value buried in the data within their organisations. You’ll help them modernise their data and analytics environments, apply next generation AI and intelligent automation technologies, and re-engineer their organisations and ways of working to achieve new levels of performance.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Whether it’s advising on rationalising portfolios, strategically removing costs to drive shareholder value, acquiring or divesting a company or its assets, you’ll have the opportunity to work on some of the highest profile disruptive mergers and acquisitions in the market.

Meet our Consulting people

“It’s such an inspiring place to work; everyone you talk to is working on something interesting.”

Consulting Case StudiesWhat are the best things about your job?

It’s such an inspiring place to work; everyone you talk to is working on something interesting. There are always so many exciting things to get involved with that it’s a challenge to prioritise where to spend your time. Everyone always says “it’s the people”, and that’s true. Working for a brand you feel proud of feels pretty good too. And you don’t have any stress about fitting into a particular stereotype, because there are so many different types of people in Deloitte Digital.

Tell us about your most exciting project

There have been various highlights over the years, a number come to mind; implementing a visualisation tool that helps an auction house see who’s bought each piece of art, designing how a new loyalty scheme would work in a large retailer, getting a large department store ready for a switch over to a new contact centre solution, and implementing technology that provides a luxury retailer with a single view of all their customers and the enabling tools that allow them to use this for more personalised marketing and better customer service.

Why choose Deloitte Digital over a competitor?

I’ve never experienced another culture that’s so unafraid to break traditional boundaries, and is so forward looking in its strategy and approach. It’s exciting to be working somewhere that’s bringing together a unique set of capabilities that we can see clients are looking for and value.

Deloitte has a vision of a future that’s full of people motivated to work on what energises and inspires them, who don’t see a hard boundary between life and work, are flexible about their direction, place value on a company’s principles, and who never lose the importance of human relationships in all this digital change.

How’s the work-life balance?

I work Monday to Thursday and spend Fridays in my other major role in life, as a mum to two small and very active little boys. The juxtaposition of working life and pirate role play on a daily basis keeps things interesting.

"I feel like I can be the best version of myself when I am at work."

Consulting Case StudiesWhy would you recommend a career at Deloitte?

The great culture, flexibility and range of experiences that Deloitte offers is what sets this firm apart. In Human Capital, Deloitte is far ahead of any of our immediate competitors.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I enjoy working with intelligent, energetic people who come from diverse backgrounds and experiences. I feel like I can be the best version of myself when I am at work and this helps drive innovation, creative thinking and best solutions to help our clients solve their problems.

What do you do?

My current client is a renowned Consumer Products organisation, based in Uxbridge. I lead Change and Communications for their move to SAP S/4 HANA as part of their overall Finance Transformation programme.

I see my role as helping and preparing the business towards new ways of working and guiding them along the change journey. I am passionate about people and constantly thinking about how I can make change easier for any impacted team. Ultimately, this will help deliver the benefits of working with new processes and technology.

What’s your most memorable moment?

When one of the client team said he would leave the company if I ever rolled off the project. Overall, we’ve created a good team culture; we’ve set up a running club and organise weekly team socials, which has made this project more memorable and fun.

Now we’ve covered work, how about life?

Outside of the job, I enjoy practising hot yoga, travelling to interesting places, trying new food, and mentoring university students.

"I get to work on projects that help clients in a sector I feel truly passionate about.”

Consulting Case StudiesWhat’s your proudest career achievement?

Last year, I was a winner in the Consulting category of the ‘We Are The City’ Rising Star Awards. I was nominated for the work I did developing a technology strategy, working alongside victims of serious crime. Being announced a winner was the highlight of my career to date. I’ve never been big on ‘selling myself’, or bragging about my own achievements, so I hope I represent that it’s ok to be quiet and focused on delivering the best you can for your clients. Along the way, someone will notice and truly appreciate your efforts.

What do you do? And what’s the best thing about it?

I sit within our Security and Justice (S&J) account, as the Commercial Team Lead for a project delivering improvements on a national scale into UK police forces. And, in my spare time, I volunteer as a Special Constable. Which is rewarding and challenging and directly supports the work I do at Deloitte.

Working in S&J means I get to work on projects that help clients in a sector I feel truly passionate about. That’s undoubtedly the best part of my job. I am also surrounded by colleagues who, like me, have an unfaltering desire to genuinely improve the technology and digital capabilities provided to police officers. Making sure they have the best tools to do their job. It’s an exciting and inspiring team to be part of.

Why choose Deloitte?

For me, the biggest draw is the people you work with and the culture of the firm. Every person you come across, from Analyst through to Partner, is approachable and genuinely passionate about the work they do.

Deloitte also has a great culture for understanding and utilising home working effectively. Knowing I can work from home on a Friday, without the lengthy commute, whilst still being readily available and involved with the team via skype is fantastic.

"I love the diversity in the projects that I’m involved in and the opportunity to work with lots of different people from various service lines."

Consulting Case StudiesSo, why join Deloitte?

What attracted me to Deloitte were the endless opportunities and the collective experience of other like-minded individuals. Deloitte’s clients include many of the world’s largest organisations; I wanted to be part of a team that made a difference that I could be proud of. I love the diversity in the projects that I’m involved in and the opportunity to work with lots of different people from various service lines.

Did you have any pre-conceptions before you joined? How’s that been in reality?

Having never worked in a Big 4 professional services firm, I was nervous about my first day. The stereotype of overconfident consultants in suits and unapproachable Partners is what came to mind. I couldn’t have been more wrong. In reality, everyone is really friendly and approachable at Deloitte, in many cases going out of their way to help you settle in, especially if you’re a new starter. Speaking to lots of different people to build your professional network is very much encouraged here.

How do you feel you’re supported from a wellbeing perspective?

Deloitte has a number of ways to support our mental health and wellbeing. In this current climate it’s really important that there are multiple channels for staff to reach out and ask for help – Deloitte’s facilities and options are excellent. Within the Consulting practice itself, there is a resource called Flourish. It’s a platform that contains useful links and articles about how to understand your wellbeing needs and where to find the support you need. They have hosted a number of interactive wellbeing events that explore lots of different topics, ranging from Mental Health awareness to how to energize and motivate yourself during uncertain times. It has helped me understand that I’m not alone in the way that I am feeling sometimes and that many other people go through similar experiences.

Tell us a bit about what you’ve been up to recently.

As well as my specific project work, I’m part of a team that is working towards expanding our services to clients in the North. I feel really fortunate to be involved in developing our Consulting practice here. It’s been a great opportunity to really understand how Deloitte operates and how it aims to deliver the most value to our clients. I have worked closely with people from outside my immediate team as well as other parts of the Deloitte business. I’m really looking forward to continuing to work on client projects in the North West and building our client base. The region has had, and continues to have, a lot of investment towards skills, technology, transport, education and culture. Combined with the government’s ‘Levelling up agenda’, it makes the North a very exciting place to be.

"The flexibility now to be able to work from home but also being able to go into the office allows a more comfortable work-life balance."

Consulting Case StudiesHow did you find the application process?

I was very lucky with the application process and felt comfortable to be myself. I spoke about my career goals but also what I want back from a firm. For me this meant inclusivity and feeling like I am part of the company, which was portrayed very well. I was able to have conversations and felt at ease rather than having the pressure of thinking I needed to impress. I found it easy to connect with the people I met and my goals aligned to the core values of Deloitte.

How does Deloitte support an inclusive environment?

There’s such a range of diversity networks to join, and there’s a lot of awareness around inclusivity. Everyone pushes each other to get involved and pursue what they believe it. It’s a great environment to be in because everyone is open to learning and ensuring they all do their bit to make everyone feel included.

What gives you a sense of purpose?

Striving to achieve the best possible solution for the client and being able to achieve this makes me feel complete. Being able to have that sign off after a few extensive days of hard work feels like you have achieved something and allows you to feel like you are part of something bigger. Knowing that your input makes a difference in achieving a goal provides that self-satisfaction.

What do you enjoy about where you work?

The London office is vast and big, and each area has a different feel. It represents all parts of the business and it’s nice to be able to connect with individuals who you may not always work with. Since the pandemic lockdowns, I think we all appreciate the opportunity to meet our colleagues in person and build those relationships. However, the flexibility to be able to work from home but also being able to go into the office allows a more comfortable work-life balance.
