Life at Deloitte
People and culture make Deloitte a great place to work.
That’s what the people at Deloitte say make it one of the best places to work. What’s great about the people? That’s an easy answer. They are exceptional. Each person is unique and valued for that, among the best and brightest in the business, and takes pride in his or her achievements and the success of others.
With 85 years of uninterrupted presence in the Middle East, Deloitte has played a vital role in the growth of the region to date. We’re also very much a part of its future. Deloitte has identified the Middle East as a priority market that represents superior growth opportunities. As such, our firms, operating in 15 countries and employing more than 2400 professionals, have been targeted for major investment. This is accompanied by a focused strategy of expansion in key business areas and a continued emphasis on recruiting and retaining the most talented professionals from the region and other countries to serve Middle East companies.
The culture? It’s about inclusion, collaboration, high performance, and opportunity. Deloitte hires the top talent in every market and offers them access to the opportunities to do their best work and succeed. Right from the start, you will be part of a team serving a group of select member firm clients or making a difference on a business-critical internal project. And Deloitte offers access to opportunities that support your growth, develop your skills, and guide you to reach your goals.
Do you wonder whether you’ll fit into our corporate culture?
With each member firm operating independently but united by a common vision, Deloitte gives you the opportunity to feel part of a local community led by global standards. While the culture in each of our ME member firms varies, it is characterized by a combination of world-class leaders and regional pragmatism, producing a conducive environment to feed your growth and self exploration while making sure short term objectives are always kept in sight.
Diversity is playing an ever increasing role in innovation. The ideas generated by clashing cultures is one of the ways Deloitte is able to stay one step ahead. DTME is proud to have over 25 nationalities across the region at all levels with women playing an increasingly valuable role in leadership positions. We make sure that operating in a different cultural surrounding does not infringe on ones personal cultural belonging this is don’t through progressive practices and diversity tools that make our candidates feel right at home while also providing opportunities to further develop skills and follow their interests down new roads. Using constant feedback from our people we are also able to shape human resources policies allowing us to move forward with the relentless aim of making Deloitte the most sought after organization for talent and clients alike.
Diversity does not end with cultural difference. Women also play an integral part in the Deloitte workforce, Deloitte is committed to the recruitment and advancement of women through initiatives such as its Council for the Global Retention of Women (GROW) and Deloitte in the Middle East's DRAW (Deloitte retention and advancement of women). DRAW was designed to ensure Deloitte & Touche (M.E.) is the place where talented high performing women can find outstanding careers. In the last few years DRAW has seen the introduction of a number of initiatives, including work/life balance policies to help further women's careers at Deloitte. At the same time, promotions within the firm have seen women assuming more leadership roles in the region.
