Is there such a thing as a bad idea?

Or does it still add value by telling you what not to do? Is being a jack of all trades better than being a master of one? Does a fresh pair of eyes and a natural curiosity bring as much to the table as knowledge and experience? Want to find out? Come on in.

Discover how Strategy & Operations fits within Deloitte

Strategy & Operations is...

“In the eight months I’ve been here I’ve worked across the healthcare industry, education, life sciences, digital, consumer business (public and private sectors too).”
Felix Dinh

We work with every type of client – from innovative start-ups and niche businesses, to the largest global firms and public sector giants. No two projects are the same, so the opportunity to learn and develop is endless.

We work collaboratively with our clients to link strategic vision to flawless execution, helping them achieve tangible, long-term value. From developing a pragmatic strategy and evaluating mergers and acquisition opportunities to improving operations functions, you’ll develop the experience and expertise to help clients both build and deliver an executable strategy.

Maybe you’ve always been fascinated by human biology and genetics, or curious to know more about how the renewable energy market works. Maybe the future of transportation is more your thing. Because the industries and clients we work with are so diverse you have the opportunity and freedom to find a project that truly sparks your interest both personally and professionally.

“Choosing to work for Deloitte has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.”
Mollie Mahoney

Curious to always find a better way? Constantly looking for inspiration and new ideas? Then you’ll fit right in here. Innovation is at the heart of everything we do. Cutting-edge analytics, artificial intelligence, robotics, cognitive technologies like machine reading and speech recognition – you name it, we use it, to help our clients solve some of their most challenging problems.

“The opportunities to gain work and life experience and travel are endless.”
Felix Dinh

What do our people say?

Monitor Deloitte
“There’s nothing better than a workplace where you can have inspiring conversations with colleagues in an open, tolerant and positive environment.”

What do Strategy people do? And what do you enjoy most?

In simple terms, we provide advice to companies and organisations to make them more efficient and prepared, considering the economic climate we’re facing. BrightStarts are free to do projects in any of the areas we cover.

My team is working on a major piece of thought leadership that aims to help companies be more socially responsible. I’m excited, as this is my first chance to be able to contribute on such a hefty report, and I look forward to the date of its publication. Although I haven’t had much experience in business writing, it’s evident that the firm is prepared to give us joiners the chance to prove our mettle.

No two projects are the same; you’re never stuck with the same thing over and over again. The nature of this job provides you with flexibility and freedom on what you work on and who you work with.

How do your managers and the firm’s leadership inspire you?

They are down to earth and approachable. One of my most memorable experiences during induction was playing table tennis with Richard Hammell, the UK Lead Partner for S&O.

We are made to feel we can be ourselves here; the firm absolutely encourages it. In fact, that was the first thing that was reiterated during our induction. Deloitte does not want robots, people who are uniformly the same; Deloitte wants a diverse workforce for a diverse global economy.
