Position Summary

Telco, Media and Entertainment Tech Strategy Senior Manager

Our Telecommunications, Media and Technology (TMT) industry clients include some of the most valued companies in the U.S. and many of the world’s top global brands. We are poised to help clients shape their evolving business models, scale and transform their operations, modernize their processes and technologies, and constantly improve their customer experience.  Our Telecommunications, Media & Entertainment sector includes the world leaders in telecommunications, media, entertainment, sports, business information services, and digital platform companies – for search, social, marketing, analytics, etc.

Are you a talented professional that focuses on the planning, execution, and monitoring of project initiatives? Are you a resourceful problem solver that thrives in the identification and definition of creative, effective technology solutions? As a Project Management/Functional Manager, you help clients set-up, manage, and operate their most complex projects, define functional requirements for technology solutions, and design and derive transformative approaches for technology systems. 

The team

Deloitte’s Strategy practice brings together several key capabilities to architect integrated programs that transform our clients’ businesses, including Strategic Growth Transformation, Transformation Strategy & Design, Technology Strategy & Business Transformation, and AI & Data Strategy.

 

Strategy professionals serve as trusted advisors to our clients, working with them to make clear, data-driven choices about where to play and how to win in order to drive growth and unlock enterprise value.

 

Strategy Consultants help our clients:

  • Identify strategies for growth and value creation
  • Develop the appropriate business models, operating models, and capabilities to support their strategic vision
  • Maximize the ROI on technology investments and leverage technology and Cloud trends to architect future business strategies
 

Deloitte’s Transformation Strategy & Design market offering focuses on what we call “big T” Transformations – we help deliver fundamental shifts for our clients who are looking to either optimize, evolve, or reinvent their business.  By helping them articulate their transformation ambition, architect new business models, design new capabilities that capitalize on emerging technology, configure an enterprise operating model, and optimize their organizational profitability, we help our clients organize and realize their transformation goals.  Due to the unprecedented impact of digital and disruptive drivers influencing enterprise decision-making from “tip-of-the-spear” strategic thinking, down through the capabilities that enable  forward-thinking transformation ambitions, the role of designing transformations with a business and cost-focused lens is extremely important.

 

Often our clients must fund their transformations by turning inward, improving core business efficiency and profitability by focusing on multiple value levers—growth, liquidity, cost, talent, and risk — to fund and incubate new business models and/or new operational structures that we help design.  Deloitte’s TS&D practice helps our clients understand trade-offs between margin-improvement opportunities and rapidly identify offerings with the greatest impact and long-term value to their business. Our work helps unlock the funding clients need to grow and transform their business.

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.

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.
