Work you’ll do

The Deloitte Greenhouse® is searching for a Breakthrough Lab Manager to join the Breakthrough Experience team. This is an exciting opportunity to work with a wide array of clients to solve exciting business challenges, stretch your critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and network with executive-level clients as well as Deloitte leaders. The Breakthrough Lab manager plays an integral role in the success of labs, including:

Lab Design: Breakthrough lab managers are responsible for driving the lab design process. This includes drafting initial lab design documents, leading the design feedback and iteration process with Greenhouse teams and Deloitte teams, overseeing content curation and creation, reviewing all lab materials, and conducting pre-lab interviews as appropriate. We are looking for someone with strong design thinking and creative problem-solving skills who has a passion for creating innovative, dynamic, unique experiences for our clients and account teams.

Lab Delivery: As a Breakthrough lab manager, you will manage day-of Breakthrough lab delivery on an ongoing basis, which includes live synthesis of key insights and take-aways during the lab, helping to identify opportunities for in-session design or delivery changes, leading breakout groups, and facilitating some lab modules. We are looking for someone with strong executive presence and who has a knack for operating in ambiguity.

People Leadership: Mentoring and apprenticing teams will be a core part of your role; providing both formal and informal instruction, direction, and feedback to lab producers and other junior staff.

Project Management: Breakthrough lab managers own project management for assigned Greenhouse labs, which includes setting, communicating, and tracking milestones and objectives, proactively identifying risks, leading meetings with Greenhouse and Deloitte teams, and leading and/or participating in client interviews. You will typically manage the relationship with Deloitte account teams and support the lab lead in managing client relationships. We are looking for someone with strong project management skills, stakeholder management skills, and an attention to detail.

Greenhouse Program Support: In addition to delivering labs, you may also have the opportunity to support national or local special projects as well as test creative and innovative approaches that could be leveraged in the Deloitte Greenhouse® portfolio. We are looking for someone who excels in a collaborative team environment and is energized by challenging the status quo.

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.
