Your opportunity

With over 1,000 professionals in the UK, our Human Capital practice is renowned for providing distinctive depth and breadth of HR and organisation transformation services to clients undertaking complex major programmes. Human Capital sits alongside Technology and Strategy and Operations as one of three Competencies in Consulting at Deloitte.

Human Capital includes three Service Areas focused on HR Transformation and Applications, an Actuarial and Pensions practice and a Service Area focused specifically on helping our clients identify, manage and solve the people issues that accompany major transformation and/or cause businesses to perform below their potential. Called Organisation Transformation and Talent (OT&T), our practice brings together specialist expertise in project and programme leadership, change management and cultural change, organisational design, technology adoption, capital programme delivery, leadership, talent, learning and reward. We deploy these capabilities individually or, more commonly, in a blend as part of supporting major transformation programmes.

Our Public Sector Presence Our Public Sector practice has a strong and growing presence across Central and Local & Regional Government. We help our clients to deliver complex, business-critical engagements across all parts of the Public Sector including Defence and Security, Health and Social Care, Transport, Education, Welfare and Justice. Our strong relationships and the depth and breadth of our skills mean that we have been at the heart of some of the biggest and most ambitious programmes undertaken across government and local public services. We are a highly ambitious team, growing strongly and at the forefront of thinking of new iss ues around public management, such as the 'Future of Work', AI, Robotics and digital.

Our International Reach
As a global organisation, we work with clients in the UK and around the world. As part of Deloitte's North West Europe firm, in the years ahead we are likely to work closer with our Swiss, Nordic, Belgian and Dutch colleagues to support clients throughout the region. We are also investing in the Middle East given the significant amount of transformational work in the region, particularly within the Public Sector. We are looking to leverage global best practice and strengthen our team that focuses on opportunities in the Middle East, in particular Saudi Arabia. It is therefore intended that these roles will be primarily targeted at projects in the Middle East but will also involve working in the UK and other regions depending on future demand.

Your role
As part of the Organisation Design team within Human Capital's Organisation Transformation and Talent practice, we work with senior leadership teams to deliver value through people, by redesigning organisations to help them resolve some of the most complex challenging business issues and build competitive advantage through aligning their organisations with their strategies.

We provide our clients with the advice and delivery support that they need throughout the entire cycle of their organisation transformation programmes. Whether it is assessing, planning, supporting, managing, or delivering organisation redesign, we need the very best people to join us and strengthen our team even further.

As part of our Organisation Design team, you will deliver and lead elements of the planning, scoping and delivery of major organisation design projects across the public sector working in multi-disciplinary teams. This includes: developing effective operating models, assessing organisation structures for improvement opportunities, designing and delivering organisation design change, and identifying organisation design benefits.

  • Helping clients solve complex issues by performing analysis, providing recommendations and utilising a combination of experience, industry knowledge, tools, and technology
  • Developing work plans for components of client engagements and leading the delivery of defined project objectives
  • Managing one or multiple workstreams in client projects, coaching junior team members and producing high quality deliverables
  • Working with a range of stakeholders, and being seen as a subject matter expert within client organisations and by colleagues
  • Supporting business development by contributing to new business proposals and presentations and taking role in industry and accounts

Your work, your choice

How long does impact take? How long is a piece of string? How many seconds does a solution contain? How can we possibly tell? After all, impact can be huge or small. Immediate or years in the making. At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk.
We, therefore, carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. If the working pattern you are looking for is not specifically indicated below, we are happy to discuss alternative arrangements.

The base location is one of our UK offices. The role may involve travel, working in different areas of the UK and likely overseas travel, particularly the Middle East and including Saudi Arabia.

Suggested work pattern: Permanent full-time
