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?
Technology Digital Risk (TDR)
What attracted you to Deloitte?
When I made the decision to do an apprenticeship, I knew I wanted to be in a role where I could support clients and work collaboratively with other people. The appeal of Deloitte was that I could do this while working for one of the top global consulting firms. It seemed like an amazing place to start my career.
Has anything surprised you about working here?
I didn’t realise how inclusive the environment would be when I started. The people were even more willing to network and talk about how I was finding life at the firm than I had previously imagined. The strong togetherness of teams within Deloitte was very apparent when I started my journey with the firm.
Tell us about your progression at Deloitte
I mostly learn on the projects that I work on. I have gained some wider industry knowledge through reading articles and reports and developed my ability to lead client meetings. I started my role straight from school and I have obtained a lot more skills since then in just about every capacity. This has helped me to be more confident in my work, gain a better understanding of the wider corporate world and visualise how I want my career to develop in future.
What attracted you to Deloitte?
I wanted to be part of a graduate scheme where I could continue my learning and development alongside working, which is something that was on offer at Deloitte. It’s also an influential place and they take care of the people who work here. In terms of the role I applied for, I was impressed by the breadth of work that the Ventures team covers and the drive towards experimentation.
How do you explain your job to friends and family?
I think the easiest way to explain what we do at Ventures is to say that we are constantly innovating to ensure that Deloitte stays ahead of the curve as a firm. We want our clients to get the best service possible, and the Ventures team is responsible for experimenting with the newest market trends to find out what works and what doesn’t, before we introduce it more widely. We are constantly on the lookout for new start-ups we can work with and new experiments we can try out.
How do you feel Deloitte fosters an inclusive culture?
I am a part of the Gender Balance Network, which is a network of individuals working towards gender balance and promoting gender equality. I also attend monthly Women in Tax Ventures sessions where the women from my team come together to discuss important topics such as communicating in the workplace as a woman. Deloitte also fosters an inclusive culture within its teams, where people feel they can be themselves. In my team everyone is very supportive, and we always celebrate each other’s wins!
Technology & Digital Services Analyst
What attracted you to Deloitte?
Deloitte appreciates diversity and fosters inclusion which means you can be yourself whilst being respected for the contribution you make. They also welcome neurodiverse candidates, which shows they recognise the unique skills that neurodiverse people can bring. Before joining, I enjoyed learning about the Women in Cyber and Gender Diversity initiative that Deloitte had launched. There was also a very strong emphasis on the support and training that Deloitte was willing to invest in their employees to help them build their careers, which really attracted me to the firm.
What does your role involve?
My role is to help protect the corporate network and data from outside intruders, a bit like a burglar alarm sensor in a house. In the cyber world, there are many alerts put in place to inform us if we have a threat actor attempting to access the Deloitte network. My job is to understand and check these alerts when they come in, to determine whether we are under attack. Another area of my role is threat intelligence –a new process where we actively research the new tactics that people are using to launch cyber attacks. Having access to this information means we can ensure that Deloitte’s defense, detection and prevention methods are up to date and are able to prevent or minimise the impact of such an attack. I enjoy the fact that every day is different and you don’t always know how it will take shape.
How does Deloitte foster an inclusive environment?
As a neurodivergent individual sometimes it can be hard to be yourself and there’s a lot of stigma around it. At Deloitte I’ve been welcomed from the start and supported in my day to day working life. I am also a member of the Neurodiverse Community and when I first joined the firm, I was assigned a Neurodiverse Manager who got in touch with me to ensure I settled in well. Meanwhile the leaders in my team have told me I can approach them for additional support whenever I need it.
Can you tell us a bit about what you do in Forensic?
To put it simply, my job is to help organisations limit their exposure to financial crime. Working on preventing financial crime gives me a real sense of purpose because everything we do is another step towards making it harder for criminals to benefit from their illicit activities and a nudge towards making the world a more pleasant place. Fostered by Deloitte’s collaborative environment; we all have our part to play.
And what do you love about it?
I love that I’ve been encouraged to take on responsibilities that enable me to interact with the client. I think that’s so brilliant at such an early stage in my career. It’s allowed me to gain confidence, which puts me in good stead going forward.
What’s been a challenge and how have you been supported through that?
I found coming into the role with limited technical knowledge quite a challenge initially because it made me doubt myself on occasion. But the team have been amazing, so supportive. I have had introduction sessions and have been pointed towards the relevant materials that allow me to develop my knowledge and understanding. I’ve learnt a huge amount since I’ve been here.
You joined through the BrightStart Programme. How did you find the application process? Any tips?
I found it pretty smooth. It mainly focused on my skills to work independently as well as part of a team. I did a group presentation, an exercise focused around the sort of tasks I would have to do if I got the job, and a couple of interviews. I’d always advise anyone preparing for the application process to do some research into the role you’re applying for and also to ask questions in your interview.
Is there anything you’ve been particularly surprised by since joining?
I’ve been surprised by how much of a team spirit there is within my office and service line. I thought that, given the size of the firm, it would be difficult to find that. But the reality is that I’ve become part of a great and supportive team who are genuinely invested in my development.
Tell us about your job and the best things about it
Our Products & Solutions team sits within Deloitte’s Forensic Technology department. We use innovative technology to solve complex issues for our clients, specifically in the financial crime and regulatory fields. Which includes developing new software products.
The best thing about my job is having access to cutting-edge technology, such as cloud services, and getting involved in the full software lifecycle, as well as being in an environment where I can continue to develop my skills. That’s something that really motivates me. Every day I learn something new and increase my technical skills.
Isn’t it all just work, work, work?
The social side of Deloitte is great, being able to go on socials after work with my team, but also wider teams in the company, is a great way to meet new people, get involved and increase my network – but also have fun!
What’s the best thing about your office?
Working in St Albans is great because, even though it’s a regional office, it’s still very much connected with the London campus. Our office also works with local charities, such as EarthWorks. This is great because it enables us to make an impact on wider society.
