Work you’ll do

All third-party tools, operational enablers, and technologies used as accelerators on tech enabled services projects must be reviewed to validate firm standards are applied and risks are understood and vetted. The firm Technology Operating Model (TOM) framework and process facilitates those reviews and provides a mechanism for guidance. The Consulting version of this process is known as Certified to Use (CtU). CtU is required for technologies that host client data, connect to Deloitte systems, and/or use 3rd party software. I&P is partnering with ITS to optimize, enable, and scale the CtU program. The position is new, and the CtU Manager will own execution of the end-to-end process as well program enhancements to drive efficiencies, scale, and transparency.

Position Overview:
The CtU program guides practitioners and teams through technology risk reviews and advisory processes necessary for third-party or custom-developed non-monetized technologies that contain and/or process Deloitte or client data. The CtU Manager collaborates with leaders from Innovation and Platforms, Risk, Infrastructure, Architecture, Security, Offering Portfolios, and others to manage and facilitate the full program. The CtU Manger is responsible for driving their assigned technologies through the program as well as proactively and collaboratively improving the program by identifying and implementing changes to drive efficiencies.

The ideal candidate is a Manager with experience in CtS (Productization) and/or product management, strong project management and communication skills, excellent facilitation/presentation skills, attention to detail, process improvement, and a passion for building strong relationships.

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.

  • 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.
