  • Develop executive-level presentations to communicate and achieve consensus for recommendations. Our projects are frequently presented at Firm governing body meetings

Storytelling through data

  • Translate conceptual questions into data-driven analyses to allow leaders to make informed decisions
  • Structure and guide modeling efforts that underpin strategic recommendations
  • Transform data into useful information tailored to leadership needs through storyboarding and data visualization

Program management

  • Manage the implementation of recommendations by driving cross-functional stakeholder engagement, communications and other change management elements
  • Facilitate collaboration with other parts of the Firm to drive systemic solutions and sustainable impact across projects
  • Develop and operationalize reporting to measure the impact of changes

Leading others

  • Develop and mentor more junior team members
  • Manage the work and deliverables of more junior team members, in both the US and India
  • Provide guidance in staff recruitment, performance management and retention activities

Driving collaboration across the Firm

  • Foster strong relationships with other internal consulting and analytics groups to drive growth and profitability
  • Work with key stakeholder groups to build cross-functional relationships across the organization
  • Provide ad-hoc expertise on project framework, approach, tools and Firm data to other teams

To be successful in this role, you’ll need

  • Ability to lead others to deliver quality work under tight timelines and shifting priorities
  • Client-service mindset and a desire to take on tough and challenging projects. The scope and variety of work will change frequently depending on the current project portfolio
  • Solid understanding of finance and financial analysis and sound business acumen
  • Proficient with data manipulation (data structuring, wrangling) and analysis
  • Strong analytical, problem solving and critical thinking skills; comfortable with ambiguity
  • Ability to filter through ambiguity but able to also execute on the details, while working well under pressure and acting in the utmost confidentiality with sensitive information
  • Superior project management, time management, and client relationship management skills
  • Superior written and verbal communication skills; strong presentation skills with ability to “tell the story”
  • Extremely strong interpersonal and team building skills; able to foster a cohesive and effective work environment
  • Possess self-confidence, diplomacy, poise, business judgment, maturity, discretion, and empathy
  • An ability to work effectively across functions and levels; comfort collaborating with teammates in a virtual environment. The Strategic Analytics group is a virtual team with colleagues located across the US
  • Strong skills in Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint; experience with Tableau or Microsoft Access is preferred
  • Knowledge of and/or willingness to learn analytical tools such as Dataiku, R, Databricks, or similar tools is a plus

Additional qualifications

  • 8-10 years of relevant work experience in client-facing or internal consultative roles
  • Flexible work style. Some moderate travel (up to 10%) may be required given the expected leadership interactions and the hands-on nature of the work. A US-based office location is required

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.
