Become the CFO's trusted advisor
As a consultant in our Finance Transformation practice, you’ll strive to become the CFO’s primary trusted advisor. As a member of our team, you can make an impact on our finance client organizations.
Do you want to focus on advising the CFO and the finance function, improving value within the organization and externally in the marketplace? We navigate change within and through the finance function, helping to enable value creation through activities such as mergers or divestitures, taking a company public, building financial processes and organizations to keep pace with a rapidly growing company, improving reporting, analysis and decision making, and driving cost reduction through finance. Our job is often to craft the roadmap across people, process, and technology to navigate the transformation, and then execute the strategy to help generate results.

Learning and development
Through your variety of experiences at Deloitte, you can develop the analytical, communication, and leadership skills that will help you achieve your full potential, no matter what career path you eventually choose. You will be continually challenged by your clients, your team members, and your peers. Along the way, you will have access to mentoring, counseling, and training opportunities to help foster and accelerate your development of new skills and capabilities.
To help guide you through your career, Deloitte provides a number of learning opportunities through its formal university-style learning curriculum. You will start your career at Deloitte with a thorough training session at Deloitte University. In addition to new hire training programs at Deloitte, you can configure your development by taking courses online or in your local office that align with your specific career interests.
The Consultant Training Program helps you develop the “hard” skills needed to understand clients’ problems and formulate thoughtful recommendations, and practice the “soft” skills needed to develop strong internal and external relationships. Part of the learning is through a week-long simulation working with a team of peers to solve a real business problem.
The Senior Consultant Training Program includes seminars on how to manage change, ask the right questions as consultants, framing discussions, and persuasion techniques. Participants work in teams on a simulated client engagement to solve many common client challenges.
