What you will do

The Senior Consultant will play a critical role in accelerating the growth of Deloitte by supporting the planning, analysis, and evaluation of the firm’s largest and most strategic investments. The role is entirely project-based and serves as an internal consultant that partners with senior leadership and operating executives across all four businesses of Deloitte (Consulting, Advisory, Tax, Audit). Note that the role is not client-facing and requires limited domestic travel for project-related meetings with business partners. The team is remote, and the role can work from home or from one of Deloitte’s local offices if desired.

About the team

The position is part of Deloitte’s US Corporate Development function and sits within the Strategic Finance team in the Deloitte New-venture Accelerator (DNA). DNA is an internal strategic accelerator that drives the growth of the firm by supporting Deloitte’s largest and most strategic investments.

  • Partnering with the firm’s Investment Finance team to conduct strategic reviews of major in-flight investments to assess performance against strategic objectives and financial targets

Responsibilities

The responsibilities for the role will vary depending on the type of project. In addition, the scope of the role is flexible and will expand as the candidate becomes more experienced and demonstrates success on projects. 

Examples of typical responsibilities include:

  • Create detailed driver-based financial models for organic/inorganic business opportunities
  • Partner with business to gather and vet business case assumptions and underlying rationale
  • Research internal and external metrics to develop benchmarks to sanity-check assumptions
  • Partner with DNA’s Commercial Insights team including helping design, conduct and evaluate interviews with market participants to market validate assumptions
  • Partner with Corporate Development Transaction Execution team to develop economic analysis of M&A transactions
  • Support operational improvement initiatives including partnering with operating executives to assess a variety of business situations and develop data-based insights and recommendations
  • Develop financial models related to pricing including pricing calculators and cost models
  • Storyboard presentations and develop decks related to project outputs and other relevant topics
  • Conduct ad hoc financial analysis and market research to support projects

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.
