What can you do in Technology?
Our people are engaged in some of the most exciting and challenging projects our clients are tackling. Here are just a few examples.
Metro Bank Mobile App and Website
With plans to reach new customers across the UK, Metro bank turned to Deloitte to transform their customer website and create a stand-out mobile-banking app. The new state-of-the-art app was launched in under 12 months and has already won ‘Best Mobile Banking App’ in the 2017 Moneywise awards. The new website has also seen a 23% increase in users.
Waitrose - Innovation at the cutting edge of retail.
In collaboration with Waitrose we created an in-store, iBeacon prototype. This technology can interact with shoppers in a personalised way, and understand consumer behaviour at a very granular level. Together, we developed working prototypes within three weeks, so the cutting edge technology could be demonstrated at Waitrose’s concept store.
Financial Services Verification tool
Working with our Financial Crime colleagues, we’ve built a product for financial institutions that can help them verify identity. If a company does not have sufficient information about a client, that client might be able to launder money or participate in other corrupt activities, with no red flags being raised. Potentially, this could lead to serious legal issues and even regulatory fines.
Everything we do is about helping clients do what they do better, faster, through game-changing technology and innovative working methods.
We’ve built state-of-the-art simulation, training experiences and engaging experiential activity for big audiences that have helped global brands stand out in crowded markets.
We use robotic and cognitive tools such as Robotic Process Automation, machine learning, and more. We’ve used game design to optimize business systems, improve efficiency and user motivation. From 3D game engines, to interactive screens and smart devices, we play with emerging technologies, so we’re sure we have the right platforms to innovate. We collaborate with third parties to tailor our services and provide the best possible solutions for our clients. We never stop looking forward.
Being part of Deloitte means being part of the world around us. We positively encourage you to volunteer and get involved in the local community. We even have a day a year for this – our Corporate Responsibility Day. It’s your chance to get out of the office, roll up your sleeves, and work 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 to support the British Paralympic Association, or hike Kilimanjaro to raise £1 million for our charity partners, you’ll have many opportunities to make an impact for wider society, as well as for your clients and your career.
What do our people say?
What do you do? And what’s the most exciting thing about it?
To put it simply, I test whether mobile apps and websites work. There are great opportunities for me here, as digital testing is a growing area and there’s a clear progression path set out for graduates at Deloitte.
My last project was particularly exciting, as it was my first project that I got to be there for the ‘go live’. I was working for a challenger bank, where you can open a current account completely online, and I was involved in testing the account opening process. The project used some exciting, innovative pieces of technology, such as taking a selfie to verify yourself online.
What new skills have you picked up so far?
Technical skills. Since joining Deloitte, my training has been tech heavy, since I wanted a more technical role. I have had automation training and training specific to Testing (my capability). My presentation skills have grown since being at Deloitte, as I had never had to give a presentation during my time at uni. During the first 6 weeks of training, we were given multiple opportunities to practise presentations, which is extremely useful once stating on project.
Do you get many learning and development opportunities?
I have a meeting every month or so with my coach, where we discuss how I’ve been getting along and what areas I would like to improve on. I’m currently studying towards my BCS diploma. Studying so far has been ok, as they’ve assigned time for us to take the exams and we get preparation days for the orals. Both my project team and managers support me during my exams and allow me to take the time off if I need it to study.
I travel every week too. My project is currently based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I fly up on a Monday morning and fly back Thursday evenings. I have learnt to balance my personal and work life and it also gives me a great opportunity to visit another city.
