The Technology practice has been structured in a way that allows us to provide end-to-end services to our clients across all industries, right from strategy down to delivery in the most effective manner.

What areas can you join in Technology Consulting?

Analytics and Information Management - Advisory

Deloitte is recognised as the UK’s number 1 Analytics firm and Analytics and Information Management (AIM) is the core of our Consulting Analytics capability. AIM helps our clients derive value from the information available in their organisations to measure performance, drive profitability and meet regulatory requirements. We deliver this by utilising cutting edge tools to:

  • Predict the future of a business – using data and business plans to determine how profits, people and processes need to change to improve the business;
  • Visualise complex trends – organisations are increasingly information driven and we use modern tools to create visual real-time dashboards that can tell a CEO all about their business from their iPad;
  • Organise their data – data round the world is growing exponentially and so are challenges around how to manage this data;
  • Integrate their data – following mergers or systems roll-outs it is critical in the modern business to integrate data so that it can work together and inform business decisions; and
  • Capture new data – new data sources are everywhere (social media, images, workforce data, customer data, voice, free text etc.) and the business that can make use of this first can have serious competitive advantage

Analysts entering the AIM Advisory role generally go down the Consulting Pathway: directly supporting clients across multiple industries and roles, such as developing market-leading analytics solutions and defining architectures, processes and tools to improve the way clients manage their information. This role will test and develop interpersonal skills and provide the Analyst with experience of the end-to-end process of a technology project, from definition, through development and on to User Acceptance Testing.

Learning and development – what opportunities are on offer to a graduate joining your service area?

Joining Deloitte as an Analyst enrols you on a 24 month programme that will give the training and support needed for you to become a successful Consultant. Technology Analysts have the opportunity to gain professional certifications such as CIMA and industry-wide recognised BCS qualifications including ITIL/Business Analysis/Software Testing.  From experienced practitioners to those just starting their IT careers, our education programme develops your capabilities with internationally recognised certifications.

The training and development at Deloitte will continue throughout your time as an Analyst and beyond. On the job training will play a major part in your development, as will live instructor-led and online learning courses. You will also be encouraged to gain exposure to a variety of areas within your competencies. Continued support from your personal appraiser and use of your Analyst Pathway will ensure that you develop all the skills required to become a successful Consultant at the culmination of the 24 month programme.

What differentiates your industry from other industries?

There are a lot of technology consulting firms out there; our Technology Consulting practice is different. While we have unrivalled in-depth technical knowledge and experience in technology-enabled programmes, our approach is always to focus on the client and the client's industry, not just the technology. We concentrate on delivering the right outcomes through flexible and innovative approaches and an understanding of our clients’ business challenges.

We lead our field in the direction and management of large technology programmes. For example, we help clients:

  • Define their IT Strategy;
  • Manage complex technology transformation programmes; 
  • Reduce the operating costs of their IT department and IT estate; 
  • Select outsourced IT suppliers;
  • Develop bespoke applications; and 
  • Transform their IT organisation into a world class team.

Within Technology, every project is different, and there are always exciting and challenging opportunities available across a broad range of clients to obtain valuable experience as you progress your career.

Technology at Deloitte isn’t simply about using technology for technology’s sake; it’s all about how our clients use technology to achieve their desired business outcomes. Consequently, we require individuals with a passion and enthusiasm for technology and a desire to innovate to solve the unique challenges facing our clients and their business.

What social, society and corporate responsibility activities can you get involved in with your team?

All of our people are encouraged to partake in one (of many) community days and charity events each year. This is your chance to make a real difference to a worthwhile cause by taking a day out of the office, rolling up your sleeves and working with a team to deliver a tangible project for a charitable organisation.

Whether you spend a day at a primary school teaching kids, ride across Britain on a bike with your colleagues and clients to support the British Paralympic Association or hike Kilimanjaro in an ultimate challenge to raise £1 million for our charity partners, your participation will make a real impact and your contribution will be felt by many.   

Moreover, Deloitte offers you a chance to actively pursue your current and discover new interests and hobbies by getting involved with numerous clubs and societies, be it sports, business or minority groups – there is almost certainly something out there for you. Football, horse riding, wine tasting, the adventure club and Women in Technology community – here are just a few examples of the diverse range of societies which you can easily get involved with; and if you feel your hobby or interest is underrepresented, set up your own club and encourage your colleagues to join. 

Finally, the social life at Deloitte is so vibrant that it rarely happens that there is a week without an event or two – from small team outings, breakfasts and lunch breaks to large scale community events, graduate First Fridays, industry group meetings and black tie Christmas parties – all a great chance to socialise with your peers and more senior colleagues and just to have a great time out.
