Position Summary

Consultant, Sustainable Systems Initiative - Sustainability, Climate and Equity SGO | Businesses, Global and Strategic Services (BGS)

If you are passionate about climate change and how Deloitte advances a low-emissions future, join the Sustainable Systems Initiative, part of the firm’s Sustainability, Climate & Equity (SCE) Strategic Growth Offering (SGO) team. The SCE SGO is the convener/connector of sustainability activity within Deloitte (Business, Industry, and Enabling Areas). The SCE SGO is a cross-functional and cross-business team situated within the Businesses, Global, and Strategic Services (BGS) organization, and with high visibility across the firm.

There is a growing realization that achieving the Paris Agreement ambition of holding global warming close to 1.5C is only possible by making rapid and profound changes to the core systems that underpin modern life: energy, mobility, industrials, food, and more. It is difficult to overstate the magnitude of what’s needed, or the pace at which it must happen.

Achieving changes of the requisite speed and scale is only possible through non-linear, disruptive shifts within and across each of these systems. That, in turn, requires finding points of leverage that can engender positive feedback loops or create tipping points. Urgently catalyzing these exponential systems changes is perhaps our last, best hope for averting the most devastating impacts of climate change.

Through the Sustainable Systems Initiative (SSI), we will help rapidly develop deep collective expertise about what’s required to effect systems change; convene leading players across emerging low-emissions systems to jointly chart the path forward; and collaborate and co-create low-emissions solutions with clients.

Work You’ll Do

As a member of the SSI core team, this role will play an integral role in scoping, launching, and day-to-day execution of the Initiative. This is a unique opportunity to shape the strategy and operating model for the “north star” of the SCE SGO.

The Consultant will work closely with the SGO Chief Strategic & Commercial Officer, SSI Program Director and the SSI Research Leader and interact with senior leaders within the SGO, across Businesses, Industries, and Enabling Areas, and with clients and external collaborators such as non-profits, think tanks, and universities. This role will coordinate and drive key activities, including building relationships, developing eminence, and convening key players across the major systems we seek to impacts (energy, food, mobility, industrials, and negative emissions, with technology, government, and finance as essential enablers).

Responsibilities:

  • Working with the SSI Program Manager help refine the SSI strategy, key activities, operating model, and governance processes
  • Execute against near- and medium-term workplans; define essential activities, milestones, and timelines
  • Coordinate with adjacent efforts across the SCE SGO; US Businesses, Industries, and Sectors; and Global Sustainability & Climate marketplace
  • Coordinate relationships with external partners such as NGOs, Academia, Business Forums etc.
  • Help develop executive level presentations and reports, and lead the preparation of meeting agendas and materials for various leadership and team meetings
  • Suggest improvement of administrative and operational activities and processes
Qualifications

Required:

  • BA/BS (Bachelors) degree
  • 3+ years of prior work experience
  • Limited immigration sponsorship may be available.
  • Ability to travel 0-20% on average, based on the work you do and the clients and industries/sectors you serve.

Preferred:

  • Experience in Consulting, Strategy or Operations
  • Track record of high performance
  • Deep desire to effect systems-level change to address the climate crisis
  • Strong strategy, analytical, research, and project management skills
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills
  • Ability to work aggressive deliverable due dates and workplans
  • Proven ability to navigate ambiguous environments and influence key stakeholders
  • Knowledge of climate change and other ESG-related trends and challenges
  • Strategy, eminence, and/or marketing experience preferred
  • Sustainability-related experience preferred
  • Familiarity with systems dynamics approaches
  • Comfort working with complex concepts
  • Ability to succeed in both team-based and independent environments

SCAM ALERT

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.
