Position Summary

Independence & Conflicts Network (ICN) - Manager, with focus on Engagement Matters

Deloitte’s Independence & Conflicts Network (ICN) is looking for high-performing Managers. Our role provides the chance to work across the Deloitte businesses and with Lead Client Service Partners and engagement teams. 

As a Manager in our Engagement Consultation team, you’ll be on the cutting edge of regulatory compliance, focusing on auditor independence rules and their impacts on the professional services environment. In your consultative role, you’ll help Deloitte engagement teams to deliver services to our clients while complying with regulations. If this sounds exciting, then our ICN Engagement Consultation team may be the right fit for you!

Work you’ll do

In this role, you’ll use your research and investigative skills to analyze services to and relationships with clients in light of independence requirements. This will include:

  • Working closely with Partners, Principals, Managing Directors (PPMDs) and Senior Managers both within ICN and within Deloitte’s service lines. You’ll also interact with leadership, such as Lead Client Service Partners, Professional Practice Directors, and other client service teams to understand and provide guidance on a variety of engagement-related independence matters, such as:
    • Services to and relationships with clients, both within and outside the U.S.
    • Matters arising from client mergers and acquisitions or from client IPOs
    • Reviewing client corporate or investment structures, investment interests and the terms of an investment to identify affiliates, as defined in the independence rules
  • Performing research and analysis, drafting conclusions and communications, and strategizing on next steps in coordination with senior team members.
  • Developing an enhanced understanding of the intricacies of AICPA, SEC and PCAOB independence rules and Deloitte US Firms Independence policies
  • Interpreting and implementing new and existing regulations relating to permissible non-attest services for the Deloitte US entities, and providing advice and guidance to client-facing teams
  • Participating in policy setting by performing research and drafting communications aimed at increasing awareness and understanding of current, new, or changing independence rules
  • Creating and revising training courses and materials to address rule changes and new interpretations of existing rules identified during consultations with regulators.
  • Working on special projects both independently and collaboratively with PPMDs and engagement teams, involving senior members for input as necessary

The team

The Engagement Consultation team within Independence & Conflicts Network (ICN) performs a critical consultation and risk-management function for the Deloitte US Firms, protecting Deloitte from conflicts of interest and keeping the Deloitte US Firms independent, objective, and impartial, in fact and appearance, when providing services to attest/audit clients and their affiliates. Independence requirements are defined by specific sets of policies, external rules, and regulations, so maintaining independence is essential to the business and reputation of Deloitte.

Risk & Brand Protection (R&BP)

ICN is part of Deloitte Risk & Brand Protection. At Deloitte, we are stewards of reputation—ours and our clients. That’s why we foster a culture that protects, preserves, and enhances our reputation. With your help, we will distinguish Deloitte as the clear leader in professional services, making us the first choice for clients and talent.



  • Bachelors’ degree (preferably accounting, finance, business, compliance, or legal)
  • 5 - 8+ years of related experience, ideally in a compliance role and within a professional services environment
  • Deep experience collaborating with multiple and various stakeholders, including skills and abilities that enable direct interaction with leaders
  • Comfortable digging into and considering nuances and complexities in sensitive or new areas, which may require learning “on the fly”
  • Strong communication skills and ability to work with various audiences and levels of seniority across the globe
  • Positive attitude, initiative, good judgment, and dedication to quality with the ability to react positively in an environment where priorities and deadlines can quickly change and you’ll work on multiple initiatives at once
  • Outstanding attention to detail along with strong technical, organizational, and analytical skills
  • Strong time management and prioritization skills, including being responsive to requests from our clients
  • Proficient in the use of standard office-productivity tools (e.g., Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, OneNote, Teams, etc.)
  • Limited immigration sponsorship may be available.


  • An understanding of Independence requirements for professional auditing firms
  • Experience in regulatory compliance and/or analysis and interpretation of rules, regulations, and standards
  • Experience in public accounting
  • Knowledge of IFRS and US GAAP standards
  • Demonstrated team leadership competencies/experience
  • US CPA and/or advanced degree in related areas such as finance, accounting, business, or law

The wage range for this role takes into account the wide range of factors that are considered in making compensation decisions including but not limited to skill sets; experience and training; licensure and certifications; and other business and organizational needs. The disclosed range estimate has not been adjusted for the applicable geographic differential associated with the location at which the position may be filled. At Deloitte, it is not typical for an individual to be hired at or near the top of the range for their role and compensation decisions are dependent on the facts and circumstances of each case. A reasonable estimate of the current range is $86425 to $141975

You may also be eligible to participate in a discretionary annual incentive program, subject to the rules governing the program, whereby an award, if any, depends on various factors, including, without limitation, individual and organizational performance

It enables us to leverage different ideas and perspectives, and bring more creativity and innovation to help solve our client most complex challenges. This makes Deloitte one of the most rewarding places to work. Learn more about our inclusive culture.

We offer opportunities to build new skills, take on leadership opportunities and connect and grow through mentorship. From on-the-job learning experiences to formal development programs, our professionals have a variety of opportunities to continue to grow throughout their career.

Caution against fraudulent job offers!

We have been informed of instances where jobseekers are led to believe of fictitious job opportunities with Deloitte US (“Deloitte”). In one or more such cases, false promises of actual or potential selection, or initiation or completion of the recruitment formalities appear to have been or are being made. Some jobseekers appear to have been asked to pay money to specified bank accounts of individuals or entities as a condition of their selection for a ‘job’ with Deloitte. These individuals or entities are in no way connected with Deloitte and do not represent or otherwise act on behalf of Deloitte.

We would like to clarify that:

  • At Deloitte, ethics and integrity are fundamental and not negotiable.
  • We are against corruption and neither offer bribes nor accept them, nor induce or permit any other party to make or receive bribes on our behalf.
  • We have not authorized any party or person to collect any money from jobseekers in any form whatsoever for promises of getting jobs in Deloitte.
  • We consider candidates on merit and that we provide an equal opportunity to eligible applicants.
  • No one other than designated Deloitte personnel (e.g., a Deloitte recruiter or Deloitte hiring partner) is permitted to extend any job offer from Deloitte.

Anyone who at any time has made or makes any payment to any party in exchange for promises of job or selection for a job with Deloitte or any matter related to this (including those for ‘registration’, ‘verification’ or ‘security deposit’) or otherwise engages with any such person who has made or makes fraudulent promises or offers, does so (or has done so) entirely at their own risk. Deloitte takes no responsibility or liability for any such unauthorized or fraudulent actions or engagements. We encourage jobseekers to exercise caution.
